I’m sorry to report there are no Halloween costume pictures to share – we ended up not going trick-or-treating, because both Little Dude and Princess Nagger ended up sounding like they were trying to cough up their lungs, and the weather was cold and rainy, so walking around with them sick wasn’t a very wise idea. I’m saving our costumes for next year, though – we’ll still be able to use them.

Except Little Dude – he’ll have to have a different one, because the one I got him fits him this year, no doubt he’ll outgrow it by next year. He also said that next year he wants to go as a Ghostbuster, so we’ll see if that’ll still be the case by then. At least I have time to make/create/pull together something for him – well, as long as he doesn’t change his mind between now and then.

Little Dude’s teacher sent this fun picture of him from school on Halloween:

Even not feeling good, he still has swagger! He just celebrated his 11th birthday this past Friday – time is flying by! Princess Nagger’s birthday is coming up next week – I’m still boggled that she’ll be 16. SIXTEEN, people!! Where has the time gone?! I’m still looking for that pause button to no avail.

Now it’s time to move on to some funnies! Speaking of Halloween, this costume is genius:

I thought this was clever:

I’m hoping the kids don’t share their colds with us, because this is pretty much how it would go:

I thought this was hilarious:

I thought this was punny:

This cracked me up:

This is hilarious:

As is this:

This is funny, too (and for the record, I do love me some eggnog – especially if there’s spiced rum in it, or Kahlua, or  Baileys, or simply a delicious Eggnog Latté):

This cracked me up:

I thought this was hilarious:

I love this:

  1. Sorry to hear that the coughing prevented the kids from taking part in The Great Neighborhood Candy Exchange. Your Little Dude isn’t so little any more, he’s very handsome.

    Great funnies, and heaven forbid that dad gets the cold.
