Happenings...

Well, this is just going to be a random post of things that have happened lately. I was just going to put Morgan in a princess outfit for Halloween but then my Sister-in-law said I should have her be Minnie Mouse since Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is currently her favorite thing. I thought that it would be fun but I could find a costume I loved....well, there were some but they were like $30, I just think that is crazy to spend on a Halloween costume. SO I got a brilliant idea I would make one. haha, it has been quite the adventure but here is how it has turned out so far, I am pretty darn proud of myself, seeings how I have only made one pattern before...just don't look to close.


My friend Meggin and I went to get ice cream at Dairy Queen this last week...mmm....I got a pumpkin pie blizzard which was SOOO yummy...anyway, I got Morgan a star kiss thinking it is a kids ice cream and it would be ok....no, not so much. She was a mess, I got her home and cleaned her up and she still looked like this.


Ok, not a great shot but can you see the red and blue on her face and fingers?


Look at those fingers!!! Look at her arm!


I had to hold her arm down to get a picture but look at that! Do not get the star kisses from Dairy Queen....not a good idea.

This is not a very good picture either...our batteries are dead to our good camera, but you get the idea. Gala apples were on sale this week for $.59 a pound and they are my favorite! So I thought I would buy a whole bunch and dry some! So I looked up how to dry them in the oven and they turned out so good! I was excited. I thought Morgan would like them more but I don't think she is to impressed. But it was fun and I felt so domestic, and my house smelled so good.
Good times.


I also cut my hair this week, I didn't change it a whole lot except I cut bangs....they aren't quite what I expected...a little short. I took some pictures but well they didn't turn out so well so maybe I will try and get another shot later. Something for you to look forward to. :)

p.s. We are still looking for baby girl names keep the ideas coming.

Kim,
I can't believe how big Morgan is getting. She looks less like Jeff and more like YOU! She is adorable. Good job on the Halloween costume. I took the easy way out and bought a Costco elephant costume for Jack. It's pretty cute for ten bucks. Any way, I thought it was funny that Morgan loves Mickey Mouse--because Jack does too. I turn on the Disney Channel for Jack to watch "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse" so that I can shower in the morning. :)
