Well...what's up with everyone?
Let me just tell you what's going on with me...
I am SO mad at Gary...
because he took the camera to work with him and now I can't upload and then post the pictures from ourHalloween party last night. So, you'll have to wait until tomorrow to see the priceless photos. (And,believe me, they ARE priceless! I think that the three girls' costumes get my nod for best costumes as a group in a long time! Well, this is only Sydney's fourth time to dress up for Halloween...but I still like the three of them this year better than any before! A Funky Witch, Lola Lufnagle from "Hannah Montana" and Kim Possible! And Gary and I as Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf? Pretty good too!! And...the picture of the Caramel Popcorn. Yummo...)
Okay, I guess I need to stop there or I'll give away all the photo secrets!!
Anyway...come back tomorrow and see the pictures and re-live the party with me!
In the meantime, how about a few quick Sydney stories?
Driving home from Walmart Friday evening (while McKenna was at our high school football game which we won again...we are now state playoff bound!! yay!), I said to Sydney and Delaney, "Look at the moon tonight! It's beautiful!" (If you happened to see it that night, it was beautiful wasn't it? A bright, full moon!)
Sydney said back to me, "That's not the moon, Momma. It's not a crescent."
She just amazes me sometimes, with the things she picks up. She obviously thought the moon was supposed to always be crescent-shaped (that's what it looks like in books!)
At the Halloween party last night, Sydney was all duded up as Kim Possible. The best part of her costume is the red wig. She was so proud of that wig, but was concerned that people might not know who she "really" was. We all stood around the campfire with about ten teenagers around it and she whispered real quietly to me, "Momma. I don't think these people know who I am." I asked her if she wanted me to introduce her to everyone, to which she said yes. So I announced: "Everyone, this is Sydney. She does't want all of you to think she's Kim Possible. It's really her." They all yelled back to her, "Hey Sydney," and she just melted with happiness. (She also spent the rest of the evening showing people her real hair under her wig, just in case they didn't know who she was; she also sang the "Kim Possible" theme song and did KP cheers for everyone. She kinda stole the show!)
(I had a third story to tell, but for the life of me I can't remember what it was. I actually remember thinking to myself, "I have got to remember that one. It's perfect!" But I have completely lost it. Don't you hate it when that happens?)
Well... I'm off to take a shower, work on two articles due by Wednesday, and start reading all the online hype about next Saturday's Bama-LSU game (I'm already TOO excited about it! I may have a coronary by the time next weekend arrives!).
(And, hey, if you love football and haven't seen this yet...go see the craziest end-of-game play I think I've ever seen. It's HERE )
Have a WONDERFUL Monday!!! Talk to you all again soon!!
