I did it again! JP had a late flight into San Antonio and since Lily ditched me for the weekend to go camping with her grandparents I had a chance to wear a costume to the airport when I picked him up. I wonder if this will ever get old to him. Among a ton [...]
I’ve told you guys that sometimes when I pick JP up from the airport I wear a costume. It all started when we were dating long distance and he would come to visit. I wanted to do something different and exciting. What could be more exciting than standing in an airport full of people waiting [...]
It’s time for Halloween, A day for trick or treat, When the kids dress up in costume, And walk proudly down the street. They ring a lot of door bells, And collect a lot of candy too, And if they happen to see a ghost, They will be greeted with a boo. Pumpkins light up [...]
JP and I went to a costume party this evening. This is the 3rd year in a row that we have gone to the Halloween party at this house. Always good conversation and lots of fun. Can you guess what JP and I are dressed up as? I hung out with Wednesday and Pugsley Addams. [...]
The good news is my friends are awesome. Seriously how many grown adults do you know that will come over and play dress up with you? Cain is doing his best Batgirl impression, I am Minnie Mouse and Selena played Wonder Woman. The bad news is this morning I walked out to check on our [...]
Sometimes when Lily gets bored she asks me if she can go in my bathroom and play with my makeup. I only say yes half of the time and she is always so excited when I say yes. I was doing some stuff to get ready for our trip when she came out of my [...]
One of my favorite things about JP is that I am constantly learning from him. He has taught me a lot about collectible things. I was going through a pile of papers and I stumbled upon a huge stack of old Santa photos. Based on the dates on some of them and what the children [...]
The entire time I have lived in San Antonio I have heard people talk about Wurstfest every November. I guess I always kinda assumed German festivals would be in September/October because of Oktoberfest but this one isn’t. You can read the history of this festival if you click HERE. As you already know I am [...]
As I was getting ready for my softball game today I realized that it is the day before Halloween and I should be wearing a costume of some sort. I had zero time to plan for this one but this is the best I could come up with for a costume and still be able to [...]
Since Halloween falls on a Monday this year there were lots of weekend parties. I’m really surprised I don’t have more pictures but here is Alice, JP Zombie and Minnie Selena Mouse. Ta-da! Here are a few more costumes. I even got to dance with Rhianna. And we can’t forget Popeye. Selena considered wearing these [...]
After not seeing JP for like 17 days both Lily and I missed him a lot! Since all of us have been out of town and eating in restaurants and other peoples homes I figured instead of going out to dinner after we picked him up from the airport eating at home would be a [...]
Every once in awhile something happens. I can’t really explain it. And I don’t usually know that it is happening. Then the sun sets and as I lay snug in my bed a thought occurs to me. I DIDN’T TAKE A PICTURE OF ANYTHING TODAY! In my head I recapped my day and I totally did things [...]
JP has been out in California all week for work. Do you remember what I did back on October 18th? If you have been reading this website for awhile you know that I have done this more than a few times. I have never worn the same costume twice so in order to keep up the tradition [...]
We went to a production today at Lily’s school. I can’t remember the exact title of it but it was a mix of three different Dr. Seuss stories and they sang and danced to music. Pretty cute if you ask me! Do you see Lily? See how much taller she is than the other kids? That’s [...]
I have never really been a big fan of apples but today at work when I was thinking about what to make for dinner apples came to mind. I started googleing and I came up with Apple Stuffed Pork Chops. These are the basic ingredients. Once everything is all chopped up and put in the [...]
Me and JP headed down to Fatso’s Sports Garden to watch the Seattle Seahawks vrs Chicago Bears game today. Although its kinda far from our house we chose Fatso’s because that is where the passionate fans hang out. When we walked into the bar the entire bar… literally THE ENTIRE BAR started hooting and hollering [...]

Today after dinner Lily, JP and I all headed over to Six Flags. A couple months ago we bought 2011 season passes which cover the rest of 2010 as well. They have lots and lots of christmas lights up all over the place. When we first got inside the park our first stop was The Goliath which is [...]

Here is Lily and the neighborhood crew getting ready to hit the streets with one goal.. a full bag of candy! Isn’t she so cute? Lily and Cameron pounding the pavement. Trick or Treat I stayed home and passed out candy in our scary yard. Check out this vulture. Here is what our yard looks like. [...]
I had a really hard time deciding what pictures to post on this one. I saw so many cool costumes that I decided to post all of the ones I have. I hope you enjoy and if you didn’t wear a costume this year I hope this inspires you for next year! My ultimate favorite [...]

Today me and a co-worker hosted the Halloween Costume Contest at work! There were lots of great costumes! The first place individual costume was someone dressed as Brett Michaels!

Today I went through a box of photos that I have from when I was a kid and I pulled out all of the Halloween pictures that I could find. I did my absolute best to put these in date order. As far as I can tell this is my first Halloween! In 1979 Vanessa was Raggedy Ann, I [...]
Today Lily, Adeline and I went to a Halloween festival. I decided a couple days ago that we should wear costumes. Here are my batgirls right after I got them ready! Criminals of the world BEWARE! Not two but three crime fighters. Ta-Da! No more time for pictures… must go fight crime!
Check out what I found when I opened this Halloween box. I actually stopped everything I was doing and sat down to dress each McNugget in the costumes I thought they belonged in. Sometimes feeling like a kid again is such a good feeling. I was thinking I did pretty good until I had left over [...]
We spent the day getting our yard ready for Halloween. We have a scary grave yard crime sceen. Here is Lily trying to figure out what the police tape is used for. Cathy and Lily say cheese! Did someone say haunted house? This is the view of our front yard from the street. Check out [...]

I told JP and Lily earlier this year that as soon as they start advertising Six Flags season passes as “buy for 2011 and get the rest of 2010 for free” I was all over it. Like a week ago they started advertising for Fright Feast so we bought season passes. The park is less [...]
I am costume crazy. Seriously give me a costume and a reason and I am all over it. There was a time when JP didn’t live here and I would dress up in costume to pick him up from the airport. That was pre-website days but here are two of the pictures that were taken. [...]
