So here are a few of the things you've missed:
Sadie looking adorable in one of the dresses she got for her birthday. So cute!
We finally got around to carving our pumpkin last night. Ethan was supposed to go to a pumpkin patch with his preschool class a few weeks ago but it got rained out. It was rescheduled for last Thursday but then Ethan was sick that morning and couldn't go to school. So we just took the easy way out and bought a pumpkin at Wal-Mart. Ethan thought it was cool to see all the pumpkin's "guts." Sadie just wanted to throw all the magazine pages on the floor.
On Saturday we went to the local science museum, where they currently have a dinosaur exhibit going on. Ethan liked the giant skeleton in the entryway.
This year is the first time I've ever made a Halloween costume for either of my kids. For three of his last four Halloweens, Ethan has gone as a Star Wars character, and there was no way I was making one of those costumes. The other year he was a pirate so we just used stuff from his closet and a few other items borrowed from a friend. But I got a wild hair this year and decided to make something for the Sades. I chose a skeleton. Not super hard, just a little labor-intensive with drawing all the bones, tracing them onto the felt, cutting them out and then gluing them onto the pants/shirt. But I think it turned out pretty cute. I just hope she doesn't peel all the bones off as we're out trick-or-treating.
Ethan finally decided to be Spider-Man this year, and I found this costume at the local party store. I think Sadie might like it even more than Ethan does.

And finally, something for those CRAZY people who think I still "barely look pregnant." This was taken today, at 36 weeks. I am enormous. Only 25 days to go until Baby Snow makes her debut!! (my c-section is scheduled for 11/20) And yes, she has a name and no, we're not telling you what it is. It's much more fun this way. : )
