Happy Halloween!

Hello there! It's been a while since I've posted, largely because October was quite crazy. Last Wednesday, I was on the phone with Jeremy's mom and uttered these four fateful words: "We're actually all healthy!" About 24 hours later, Luke was running a fever and feeling pretty puny. He just had a weekend virus - not the flu, thankfully! He's 100% again - and just in time for Halloween!

Yesterday was Goblin Day at Grapevine High School. It's a day where everyone - teachers and students - dress in costume. It's a lot of fun (well, kind of. I won't lie - it's not my favorite day to teach. Not exactly an attentive audience)... especially when you bring your baby as a prop! The English department dressed as Greek gods and goddesses, and I was Aphrodite. Luke accompanied me... as Cupid! How cute! He was very well behaved - he didn't touch his wings, and he was spellbound during the pep rally. It was fun!

Last night, we donned Luke's monkey suit and headed to Halloween on Main Street in downtown Grapevine. Luke checked the dryer before we left. He just loves laundry...

...and, as you can see from his big ole grin, he was THOROUGHLY enjoying the people watching once we got there.

We ran into Luke's cousins - the Pacheco boys, Brayden and Bryce. Have you ever seen such cute golfers?
We also ran into cousins Nathan and Jordan, who were Batman and Robin. Robin was a little worn out from a tough day of crime fighting.

Nate Dogg, however, was ready for whatever the night brought. : )

Funniest part of the night by far: we ran into the cousins, and it was clear Luke had had it with the stroller. So we let him out, expecting the usual - an immediate grab for my legs. What really happened, though, was hilarious: Luke let loose down Main Street like a jailbird towards freedom. He didn't even look back!
Seriously! It was too hilarious. He's a brave one, our little dude!

I'm sure I'll post more tonight as we "trick or treat" - we're going to visit some friends. Hope everyone out there has a fun and safe Halloween!

Around the House

We spent all of this weekend around the house since Jeremy and I have been recovering from whatever bug we got last week. Thankfully, we're both feeling better!
Just a few pictures today - have a great week!

Check it out - my jammies match my blog!

My friend Kerry came over to visit on Saturday. Here are Jeremy, Luke, Jack (Kerry's dog), and Hannah sharing a moment on the love seat. Awwwwww. : )

Finally, Mr. Luke woke up at 6:45 Saturday morning - much earlier than normal. So I got him up, changed his diapy, started his movie, and later I find him like this. Couldn't we have done that in our crib so Mommy could sleep more?

To cut, or not to cut?

Okay blog readers, I need your help with a decision: should I cut Luke's hair yet, or should I wait? Here are some pictures to help you decide:

I'm conflicted. On one hand, those curls are so sweet! On the other, as Luke's Uncle Johnny is quick to point out, the longer his hair gets, the more those curls make him look like some sort of Dr. Seuss character. *Sigh* What do you think? Comment to submit your "vote." :)

12th Man

Luke was ready to cheer on the Aggies against Arkansas Saturday night. He sure did look cute! Too bad his spirit wear did not help our hapless team...
