Combining these to keep it short, it’s already Saturday night, and I’m a little blogged out.
Also, our computer is acting up – it’s a 5 year old unfancy laptop and the computer repair guy said it sounds like we need a new hard drive. UGGGHHH. All I use this thing for is checking e-mail, basic internet searches, and storing our word docs and photos. Some people suggested we get a “chromebook” that uses a different system where you store things in a “cloud”. wtf is that, why does technology have to be so confusing?
Anyway, if you know anything about these chromebook things, please give me some advice!

Typical preschool day, Jane gets picked up, I have some downtime, I go get the girls at noon. Naps, cooking, cleaning, husband home, bedtimes, end. Highlights:
-Jane tried on some pants that were too small and said “that’s ok, we can just save them for my baby sister.” No, she is not confused about Aiden, she will just occasionally mention like it’s a fact that she will someday have a little sister. This is sort of how I feel too. We never made a decision to have a 3rd, haven’t discussed it much (and before about a year ago I never would’ve seen myself having 3!). But… I do sort of think we’ll have a 3rd, it will be a girl, and her name will be Jessa.
-Nathan and Jane carved the little pumpkins we grew in our garden this year:
-I went to the co-op alone, mostly just to get out of the house. Was feeling pretty tired and fried and of course I see 4 people I know (two of which I managed to avoid). Usually I love the way our neighborhood is so much like a small town, but wasn’t really into it tonight!

Halloween! We love it!! I was a little disappointed to be missing out on some really fun “adult” parties this year, but just too soon with the baby. I was mostly content to take it easy. I even skipped our neighborhood party at the rec center this morning, knowing it would be super crowded and I wouldn’t even get a chance to sit and talk to my friends, which is usually my main motivation.
Instead we went to Turnstyle (a consignment shop where I sometimes bring clothes). I finally cleaned out all my old “office clothes” I’d been hanging onto just because they cost so much and were such a bitch to shop for. Unfortunately they didn’t take a lot, but I did have $47 in my account from last time, yay! Made me feel much less guilty about spending that $43 on Wed.
Also this morning Aiden projectile spit up all over the floor. I could NOT BELIEVE the distance and amount of liquid that shot out of that little baby (see the puddle in lower left hand corner?):
Nathan came home early and we started getting ready to go out. Our friends came over and we walked around the block doing trick or trick, then went to a party at our neighbor’s house. Had a bit of brandy + hot chocolate and some good beer, came home around 8:30 and it felt like a perfect version of “partying” with 2 little kids =).
I present Queen Elsa, Princess Anna, and Trinity from The Matrix: (We had a cute little peapod costume for Aiden, but he was sleeping and I was lazy).
