I want the toy with the birds on it
A white doggy and a white dog house
Just a doll house for my Barbies
Barbie 3 Musketeers
The other Barbie 3 Musketeers, pink one and a purple one
Pink ice cream
Tinkerbell thing with a green box
For the record, I have no idea what the toy with the birds on it is, but that's all she talks about. I'm sure Santa knows what she's talking about!

The other day, Lauren & I were enjoying a little snuggle on the couch while watching "Say Yes to the Dress". One of our very favorite shows to watch together.
This was our conversation
Lo: "I'm gonna get married, huh Mom?"
Me: "Yes, someday"
Lo: "I'm gonna wear a white dress, and a white thing on my head that's like a headband but not cuz it's upside up, and flowers in my hair."
Lo: "And I'm gonna carry flowers in my hands, huh"
Lo: "And my daddy's gonna hold my hands"
Lo: "And we're gonna dance"
Me: "Yes, you are"
I didn't realize that wedding planning started at 3.
To date, one of my absolute favorite conversations with my daughter.

The people you may find at a storage unit auction:
One ensemble included a fanny pack, leather coat (2 sizes too small), sunglasses, beanie, sweat pants and dress shoes
A David Crosby lookalike (with a massive camouflage flashlight - and he knew how to use it)
Strange woman with a Luis Vuitton coat on, Versace sunglasses, matching Polo beanie/scarf, listening to he ipod the majority of the time
Man who enjoys stopping on random street corners to sell the contents of his car until he gets kicked out by someone
Man with very long receding hair line mullet, only a handful of teeth, but you can tell he thinks he is LL Cool J
Genuine auctioneer - fast talk & everything
Things you may find in storage units that are being auctioned off:
Washing machine parts
Very odd & ugly contemporary artwork
Beat up couches
Still, more junk
Happy date day, Bryan, we bought nothing (thank goodness for that), but laughed a lot.
I love our little adventures!

Have recently thought about making our blog private....
I've always been of the opinion that I don't care who looks at this, but recently I'm rethinking that.
I can't decide.
Let me know what you think.

Originally Mya's costume was a bumblebee. I made a yellow & black tutu, she had wings & antennae, adorable. But she broke her tutu at the Trunk or Treat, and I didn't want to fix it, so she got to wear Lauren's elephant costume from last year. Which was actually cuter, and really warm, so it all worked out.
And Lauren was so cute - I thought I'd have to take her up to every door & stand there with her, but she marched her little fairy self right up to the door, knocked, shouted "Trick or Treat" and then an appropriate "Thank you!" when candy was dropped into her bucket. But she did get very distracted, and a little freaked out, if people had too many scary decoration on their house.
Mya just sat happily and quietly in the wagon and talked to everyone walking by.
I opened the door to my favorite dressed up trick-or-treaters. I hope you can make the picture bigger to see the detail on Jess's awesome jacket! And yes, it did smell faintly of smoke, which made it even more awesome. And again, yes, Greg is definitely wearing guy liner.
Ty, Jennie, Makayla, Annie, Greg, & Jess all came over for some soup, cookie decorating, and pumpkin cheesecake. Mmmmm. And I have no idea why I didn't take any pictures of everyone! I'm telling you, I wasn't myself that night. But thanks guys, for making my night much more enjoyable! Lo & Makayla got to do a little more trick-or-treating with eachother - those 2 thoroughly enjoy eachother. It's so cute!
I know it's sad, but I'm quite happy to have Halloween over and done with this year. I just couldn't get into it! Let's just move on to Thanksgiving, shall we?
And here - thought I'd share this with you all. I'm probably about 7 in this picture and I have NO idea what I'm supposed to be. Little Miss Muffet maybe? Anyway, my aunt posted it on her blog, and I very much enjoyed it.
