My daughter turned 10 this weekend! Given that her birthday falls only days before Halloween, she was invited to a Halloween party on her birthday. At first she was disappointed, because she thought there was some cardinal rule about birthdays and that she couldn't go to the party because we would be monopolizing her time, but then after I assured her that since it was her birthday she got to decide what to do with her time. She choose party. Then it was a long drawn out drama as to what her costume should be. My lovely girl decided to go against the grain and make her costume (which I whole heartedly support) and transform herself into a troll doll...like the kind we had as kids where you rub them back and forth in your hands to make their hair crazy). That is her actual hair! There is a tennis ball under the ponytail to elevate it.
So my husband, parents and I dropped our kids off at the party and went out to dinner alone to celebrate her first decade of life. Now that is what I call easy birthday!

Not feeling myself today. I've had a busy day of cleaning and preparing for my parent's visit. They are staying for 5 weeks! After a busy day of cleaning the attic, I know I am a psycho, doing laundry, even though my Mom is the Laundry Queen and will do a stitch of clothing anytime it is placed in the hamper God love her, and rearranging Bubba's room, I am pooped and I feel crappy. Sick to my stomach headache crappy.
So rather than bitch about how I feel I will share a cute picture of my little Bubba on Western Dress Up days last week.

Bubba's picture turned out cute too. His hair looks a bit Frankenstein-ish, but the smile makes the picture gorgeous. Bubba is never one to dress up...add hair care products...keeping clean all morning (because the older you get the later your picture is taken)...and I must say I am very proud of his picture.

My talented daughter decided to pick the bass clarinet as her first foray into the world of music. This weekend was the first time she brought her instrument home to practice. Oi Vey. That thing is huge! Band is a non-issue with my husband. Hannah MUST participate. Here I was thinking that study hall, the other choice during that period, would be fab since Hannah would come home with her homework done and have some down time. That and the cost!
Hannah perservered all weekend and even learning her fingering for a scale. The sounds aren't that bad, the steriotypical injured duck sounds, they are easily ignored.
