Charlie's First Halloween/NaBloPoMo Begins

Charlie's first Halloween was full of win. We started off the day by making the trek to the farmer's market. On the way we stopped in a furniture store to check out the wares, and the owner had a couple of baby black kittens behind the counter that she was giving away for free. I got to hold the runt (love those runts), and Roy was giving me a look the whole time I was doing so. I'm a bleeding heart for animals. And at the farmer's market, I saw another bleeding heart who had her dog in a little backpack carrier. That's so me!

Later in the day we carved our pumpkin, and I taught Charlie how to be Superman. When the time was right, we dressed him up in his frog costume and took him to my mother-in-law's for awhile. We ended up back at home around 6:30 to put Charlie to bed, and that's where we stayed for the rest of the night.

Some pics!

Today is the beginning of NaBloPoMo, where I prattle on aimlessly each day for the entire month. An entire month of prattling. I'm excited, because there's a lot to prattle on about.

Here's to prattling! May I do it often this month - if I am not completely distracted by FarmVille, that is.

just adorable. The Portuguese aren't really big on Halloween which is a shame really. But because of all the sleep deprivation and bad hairdo i look like a zombie anyway!
And for my little one the witching hour is around 7pm when he cries and kicks and screams like hes about to turn into a wolf.
A very cute pudgy wolf that is. He celebrates Halloween everyday!

phairhead - Nope, I'm just blogging. Would love to do NaNoWriMo, but I know I'd get my ass kicked.

khairun - Hang in there! I remember Charlie's witching hour very well. Now he's pretty cheerful all the time. btw, I sent you an email awhile ago - I'm not sure if you got it.
