October 15: Who knew death could be so cute?
October 16: One of the reasons we encourage Matthew to play soccer, is to learn the value of sportsmanship. This is one of my favorite things that the boys do. Whenever a player is injured (which happens a lot more frequently now that they are eleven), all the boys, on both teams, take a knee until the injured player is ready to play, or is removed from the field. And then they all applaud that player for his effort.
October 17: Sooooo......
You want to hear an Emma story?
The other night, we were watching the movie "Date Night" -- which is funny, but not necessarily for seven year olds. I had actually forgotten that Emma had come into the room...and then Steve Carrell said the word...vagina.
Let's pick up the scene right there:
Emma: What's a vagina?
Me (trying to get my heart started again -- staring frantically, and expectantly at Emma's mother)
Sharon (leaning over and whispering in Emma's ear)
Emma (eyes as big as plates --at first anyway -- and then accepting): Hmmm. I call mine the Declaration of Independence.
October 18: Little pumpkin cake balls.
Make that happy little pumpkin cake balls.
At least one anyway.
October 19: This is was one of the hardest days of my life. Photography was on the back burner.
October 20: A better day.
Much better than Ghost Face seems to indicate.
(Did you know they're filming a fourth Scream movie? Yep, it's due out next April...which makes total sense...)
Have you ever seen a ghost? Do you ever wish your house was haunted?
October 21: So the new IN-N-OUT Burger opened in Centerville a few days ago...
The line of cars, everyday, is insane.
To the Good People of Centerville: This is not a mobile fast food joint. It's not going anywhere.
And I have had their burgers -- they're good.
They're not THAT good.
