Oh I can hardly wait.
I still need to figure out what costume I am going to wear to Little A's school on Friday. They are having a Halloween carnival. I certainly can't show up wearing my Octomom costume. The kids will have no clue who I am. I'll probably end up going as a butterfly or fairy of some sort. I KNOW I have those costumes from previous years tucked away somewhere.
The D man will be wearing one of Little A's costumes...probably Tigger.
Little A is going as Optimus Prime and he can't stop talking about it. I think there are about 2 other boys in his class who are going as Transformers, so I'm looking forward to seeing what their costumes look like.
Big A is suppose to be a hot dog. It was not exactly his choice. In fact, for some reason when people asked Little A what him and his family were going to be for Halloween he kept mentioning that his dad was going to be a hot dog. I think it's hysterical. Have you seen what the adult hot dog costume looks like? See picture below.
I KNOW that Big A can pull this off. He still has to go get it, but I know I'll be laughing my ass of when he's walking around the neighborhood in this costume. Wait a minute...shouldn't Halloween be scary and not a laughing fest?
Anyway, I photo-edited some pics of us just in time for Halloween.
I simply couldn't bring myself to make the D man scary.....

These are pics taken last Halloween. My little pumpkin, D, was cooking in there, and for fun I decided to paint a pumpkin belly.
Big A and Little A were horsing around in the yard, when I caught this picture. A lot of tickling and wrestling was going on. You can see (in the lower left corner) that my pumpkin belly made a cameo in the picture.

In the midst of my crazy week, I forgot to mention that Little A lost his 3rd tooth.
His teeth are coming out so quickly, that every time I turn around, he's losing another tooth.
When I was younger, it seemed like my loose teeth took weeks before I was able to yank them out. Perhaps I was being a baby about it and was truly just terrified of telling my parents about it. As soon as I mentioned "loose tooth" to them, the Kleenex would come out, followed by a large hand in my mouth twisting it around until it snapped off. My tongue would always quickly go to that empty spot in my mouth. It was squishy and always tasted like blood.
Little A is such a trooper though. Either that, or maybe I am just really great at pulling out his teeth. I twist it quickly and pull it out. No blood, no tears and I watch as his little tongue makes its way to that empty space in his mouth. He knows how cool it feels to be able to do that.
Big A and I are always clueless as to how much to give him. We made the mistake the first time he lost his tooth by giving him $10. Yes, it's quite a bit of money, but bare with me on this....His tooth came out so quickly, and that night the "Tooth Fairy" only had a $10 bill in her wallet. The Tooth Fairy's "assistant" had a $20 bill in his wallet. So you can see their dilemma that night.
But now, 2 teeth later, the "Tooth Fairy" didn't know how much to give and only had $9 singles in her wallet that night. I hope we figure out a good amount soon. He'll be learning the REAL value of money here in no time.

In the mean time, I am still working on getting that video posted of my brother singing with the band. For some reason, it's taking hours to upload a video that's almost 2 minutes long. Anyone else have problems posting videos on here? Or does anyone know an easier way?
