11.1.11 and Miss Frankie Stein

There is something about weird and funny dates...you just have to post about it.  You know just to write the date, I guess.  This morning I had to write Reid a check for lunch money and I said, "Hey, it's 11.1.11.  How cool."  His response, "uhhuh".  Maybe it was the fact that it was 6:45 and I was talking to him.  How dare I speak before 7 am.  The nerve of me.  He took the check and headed to the car.  Let me tell you, teenagers have a vocabulary and an attitude all of their own.

Lord, help me.

Anywoo, all that to say.  Happy 11.1.11.  Isn't it cool?

Please don't say "uhuh"

Yesterday we had a great time Trick or Treating with our new neighbors.  They are so sweet.  We had a great time getting to know them better.  Halloween wasn't always my favorite holiday.  Its kinda weird.  I remember having fun when I was a child at Halloween, but I was more about the candy.  Obviously.  I never loved dressing up, Reid doesn't care too much for it either.  Now, Lulu...that's a different story.  The more face paint and the bigger the wig, the better.  She has always loved dressing up and because of her, Halloween is more fun at our house.  I am soaking it up as long as I can.  I know all too soon, she won't want to go with me.  Boohoo! 

 Here she is getting a sign all ready to hang on the front door.  She was so excited to get to see some trick or treaters.  She wanted them to feel welcome.

 We got just a little festive and made some candy.  We love putting our aprons on and getting all dirty in the kitchen.  We had melted candy all over the place.  They make it look so easy on the box.

 Didn't the teeth turn out cute??  These were our favorite.  Don't you remember wax lips as a child??

Here she is.....Miss Frankie Stein!  Isn't she SCARY!  She wanted to be something scary this year but still cute.  I think she looks adorable. 

She wanted some scars and lipstick...that's my girl!

 My sweet Trick or Treaters.  Reid stayed home and passed out candy while we hit the streets with our neighbors.  He has never liked Halloween.  I should have realized that the year I tried to dress him up as Barney.  He was NOT a happy camper.  He's like me, though.  He did it for the candy.  I was glad he let me get a picture before we left.  He is such a great kid.  :)

Here are the Trick or Treaters with something.  I have no idea what they are standing by...whatever it was it talked.....and was cute.  ha!  Macy with Austin..our new neighbor.  They had a fun time hitting all the houses.  They had so much candy we had to come home, dump out and start over.  

I hope y'all had a good Halloween with lots of sweets, treats and FUN.  I had such a great time looking at Facebook at all the pictures of the kids costumes.  There are some good things about FB.  It's really annoying me lately.  That's for another time.

Now, on to November.  I love November...the weather has been beautiful!  You can actually go outside and not melt.  Can I get a woohoo!

Oh, can you believe on the radio I heard we only have like 53 days until Christmas??!!  AND to top that off they are already playing Christmas commercials.


How was your Halloween?

Love your little Frankie Stein (and your teenager candy eater too)! Glad y'all had fun trick or treating in your new digs. I think that orange thing is a muppet from either Sesame Street or The Muppet Show--he gurgled but never talked.


The Scream guy freaks me out!
