Sunstar and the RAWR!

For those of you who've never experienced the little gem known as "Princess Starla and the jewel riders" or for you Europeans out there "Princess Gwenevere and the jewel riders" Click Here to experience this fabulous ( read HORRIBLE) cartoon series that Evie loves. Mom picked it up one day and has mourned that moment ever since but Evie is enchanted so what can you do? Looking for the link I figured out part of the reason it's so bad is that we must have one of the dubbed French versions.
They were both set to be dinosaurs, blue and yellow dinosaurs until Mimi brought home this unicorn costume. Princess Starla has a flying unicorn named sunstar and I tried my best to interpret. We made her a mane and wrapped ribbons around it and I swear I tried my best to make that star look neat - who makes those face pants anyway? She thought she fantastic though!

Meredith was either a dragon or a dinosaur, loosely translated rawr can mean either. I kept asking her to show me her tail and she would bend over and look at it between her legs! She was very excited about the candy - she's my little sugar fiend. She says " I get hany in my han and put it in my hummy" Awww! I've got to get that on tape before she learns her "d's and t's" Funnily enough once we got to the festival she would neither put her costume nor trick or treat! Finally at the end after all the candy people were gone she decided it was okay, she was doing her little swagger down the street - holding on to that pumpkin for dear life.

pumpkin time

We had the hardest time getting them to pick out pumpkins! They only wanted the baby ones and would not listen to our explanation of carving etc.. Then when it came time to actually buy the things they didn't want the baby ones! Argh!

I want to pick 6 of these for our hall. They'll be BIG like 20x20. Any advice?

I feel like I can officially say fall is here! When the girls no longer strip naked to play outside you know it's cooled off. We're trying to decide if Lella has reached her full growth or not. She's still a sweety, if a bit wild due to lack of of training. She's the perfect playmate, much better than the rabbit the girls are currently asking for.

Just Meri

You've got to love different personalities. These are the result of me saying, "candy?" - and bam she poses her little self so fast. On the other hand, there is nothing on earth that could be used to bribe Evelyn to do anything she didn't want to do. Strong will is an understatement!

Apple Picking

We went and visited an apple orchard and festival last weekend. It was fun but crowded, hot and expensive! Next year I think we'll just do pick our own and skip the festival. I think we ended up bringing home 3 bushels of apple for us and some friends, that's a lot of apple! We had an apple crisp last night wit some of them and it was yummy!

Te child will fall asleep anywhere. The other day I was using the shop vac to clean the grooves in our funky floor, I turned around and she was out on the coach. I can't tell you how many times I've gone into check on them watching a movie and she's asleep on a pile of toys in the middle of the floor! And in case you can't tell, in this picture she is on the top part of the futon in the toy room!

A little mud pie, anyone?

Now that you've seen how cute this is, I've got a a question for ya. Nathan says this is where our water comes out from the dishwasher and such. Graywater, maybe? He doesn't want her playing in it. True or not? It's not that I don't trust him but somebody please tell me I don't have to try and keep them out that inviting playspace, please? Somebody?

Loving the hammock chair!

"Working" girl

Yep, it's a waffle iron. Don't tell Evie though - she says it's her computer.
