This and That

Steve and I can't even begin to describe how scary this vampire face can be.  Jack's eyes really might get stuck this way.

Umm...did I mention how much I dislike the cold?  Griff isn't a fan either.

Gobble, gobble.  Rice Krispies are so over-rated.

Ode to the "Gigi's"

Maybe two years ago I got hooked on the Gilmore Girls.  This was a pretty big deal considering the last series I followed was probably 'Full House.'  The Gilmore Girls have since been some kind of sick addiction/therapy for me and recently I got the BEST christmas present a sister could ask for (but I promise I didn't-thanks AMY!).  You guessed it--a box full of Gilmore Girls!!!

I have quickly begun my journey through the seasons of Gilmore Girls.  Last time I completed the whole lot I had dreams about Lorelai and Rory.  I missed them, I asked them in the dreams what they were doing.  I wanted to know how Luke was...really I'm not kidding.  Recently at Target I found the perfect pillow for Lorelai and I actually had to remind myself that I shouldn't buy it for her for Christmas.  Maybe I can blame this all on Steve and his sick addiction to isolating DNA and being gone at least twelve hours a day.

For other junkies---what about Kirk?  He is just like mystery man and then somewhere in the middle of the first season he is given a name and a sole character...any feedback on this mystery?  Also, I would like to know which character I am and why?  Please!  Oh and I just have to say that the characters are absolutely amazing.  I really can't imagine the show without Lane or Paris or Luke or any of them.  They are all so necessary.

I feel better.  I've been needing to chat about this for awhile...Oh and I couldn't find a great picture or video so I put a picture of some Gilmore Girls in Georgia.

Happy 6 Months Griffy

The littlest man of the house is 6 months today and almost fifteen pounds. He is a little pleaser already. When he feels sad you can tickle and tease him into full blown laughter. He is obsessed with Jack and watches him and wants to be with him ALL the time. Griffin is my little buddy too. I seem to have a sweet spot for holding this monkey and playing with him. He is a quiet observer until he's upset, in which case he is louder alone than Steve, Jack and I combined. I'm positive. Happy Unbirthday Griffin.

Halloween, of Course!

Halloween has become one of my favorite holidays. The dressing up, the change in season, the decorations, the fun activities and I'm generally amazed by my husband and his willingness to appease us (This applies only to Halloween--let it be known that I married a rugged, mountain man, not often concerned with pleasing and quite content to share passionate and eccentric opinions).

I was cast as Wendy (thank you Jack) and then Griffin got the role as the crocodile. Jack was quick to claim Captain Hook and then there was Steve...Let me say there were several characters Steve would have preferred, but he did finally accept his call to be Peter. He gave Peter his own Steve-style. He made his own hat (that is only slightly rivaled by the Tin Man hat that he made last year).

PS Don't ask about my hair...doing hair is for girls, apparently I'm not one.
