3 months already!?

This Thanksgiving I am especially thankful for such a perfect little angel.
She is my gift.
Happy 3 months pretty girl!

HOARDERS: Purse edition.

After an embarrassing moment out with a friend, where I couldn't find my wallet, I decided it was time to reach into pandora's box and empty out my purse. This bag is evil... rather than ever looking what was in there, it was just added to. It became a serious problem.
Hi I'm Jenny, and I have a problem.
This is the evil bag that became a black hole for all things purse-like (and some really random stuff too!)
The contents of the bag were as follows: (no joke!)
*Pile of change
*my wallet
*my phone
*3 smaller bags (2 of them empty?)
*4 (Yes 4... why?!) finger nail clippers
*2 chapsticks
*a small tube of Aquaphor
*3 arm&hammer garbage bags (should have filled the bags)
*a bottle of baby lotion
*Random notes, papers, receipts
*2 bags of peanut m&ms
*bag of m&m cookies
*a Down East Basic catalog
*yellow notepad
*2 sets of keys
*Silly putty
*12V AC/DC adapter (Random!!!)
*6 diapers of varying sizes
*Garage door opener
*Vintage compact mirror
*2 burp rags
*Kitty Cat baby pjs
*Pink baby leggings
*3 pairs of socks and 2 random socks with no match
*A ghost
*2 pacifiers
*A ziploc bag of legos
*3 hot wheels cars
*A pile of McDonalds napkins
*and last 8 headbands!!! Why 8?!

My wallet was in a pouch on the inside corner of the bag I never knew exsisted. I'm sure Jack put it there, he is often found rummaging through my bag. He may have put lots of stuff in there.

You don't have to worry about me, though. I cleaned it out, threw a lot away and put things back in their respective places. Its all good and my bag is now much lighter! I know literally have a lot less weight on my shoulders.

p.s. I owe you 2 treats now, Megan. I LOVE YOU!
Where's Alan?

I LOVE HALLOWEEN. This year we went all out. I let the kids pick out their costumes (via pinterest) and for the first time in 5 years, we did a complete homemade Halloween. Yay for us. Shawn and I even got into it! Although the only picture we got was one taken by the lovely Lacy, which in turn means super blurry. I had to post the proof though, for those who were not blessed by our presence sometime this last weekend. We were dressed up as Jane Fonda and Richard Simmons. Roxy was my mini work out partner with boom box and all. And while the 3 of us had a pretty rockin theme going on, I let the other kids do whatever they wanted.

Lacy came into the bedroom one day and found me cruisin around on pinterest. We ended up looking at halloween costumes and she found this one . She said she wanted this, but rather than the face on her shirt, she wanted to make her own mask. So we did... It turned out pretty adorable if you ask me! Plus she was the only owl she saw all weekend, which she loved.

As for the boys... my kids have been watching the Cat in the Hat movie, the one with Mike Meyers, nonstop all month. Hugo knew he wanted to be thing 2 and Jack just went along for the ride. Last minute he changed his mind and wanted to be thing one. We got asked a bazillion what the Chocolate Thunder was about.. just to clarify...

Aren't they precious!? They played the part perfectly too (unfortunately!)
