THIS AND THAT

10/24/12

after running to and from doggie day camp, a trip to walmart and hosting this weeks preschool co-op today, i am tired. lucky for me, the hubs doesn't have work or school tonight so after dinner & dishes, we can just relax!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
so i've been talking halloween up to lia-bug. trying to prepare her for dressing up and going out to the neighborhood for trick-or-treating. this is the first year she is going to really get it. she talks about dressing up all the time and i picked her up a new trick or treat bucket. she'll walk around the house with her "halloween bucket" and say trick or treat. and then you'll just have to put a piece of candy in her bucket. try saying no to that sweet face...

i am SO excited about her costume this year. we went the semi-homemade route again. using a dirndl my sister bought her from germany, some tights & shoes she already has and a handmade hand-me-down cape from a really good blog friend, we'll have our very own little red riding hood on our hands. i wanted to go all out and make M the wolf & me the granny, but it just isn't happening this year.

preschool is going really good for us. and so is doggy day camp. both of my babies need to branch out and be a little more independent from me and knowing that there are safe places i can trust when i need to really helps me out!

l is quite the sassy, little thing these days.

life is good lately. challenging and tiring and rewarding and fun and blessed and hopeful. it's life. it's almost time to move in our new house and SO many changes will follow that. we just feel really blessed and happy.

and tired! so now i am off to make a cup of hot chocolate and rest of my comfy sofa. this mama needs just a tiny break today.

happy wednesday!

  2. What a cute costume idea! I can't wait to see pictures!
    My dog is going to doggie boot camp next month. Ever since we moved she's developed a distaste for other dogs. It's really strange. I talked to a trainer and they said it might be a confidence thing. Whatever it is I don't want it to become a bigger issue. We have to board her anyway while we go to my grandma's for Thanksgiving and they offer a doggie boot camp board and train program So it's really the perfect situation. They'll work with her on her "issues" and then I'm hoping I can take her to doggie day care and dog parks. I'd be happy just to take her to PetSmart...but right now I'm scared of what might happen.

    I love her sneakers! So cute!

    1. doggie boot camp sounds awesome! he did good at the day care program and boarding over the weekend so hopefully if we let him go once a week or so he'll chill out with some of his issues. we took him to petsmart for lessons once and they didn't' do any good :(
