Halloween is AWESOME!!!!
It's been a while. I'm not sure if anyone is still out there, but even with life as busy as it is, I couldn't let Halloween go by without making a costume for Shelby, thought I think this might be her least favorite costume ever.
Vin is nuts over Legos and after Lego movie came out was singing Everything is Awesome as he built. So this yet's theme is Lego Movie with Shelby as President Business and Vin as Bad Cop.
Mikey is Emmet, but I have yet to chase him down for a picture. That's right, the dog is more cooperative than the toddler.
This will be the first year he can go trick or treating, but it's raining! We are in California and the drought has been really severe so no one dares complain about the timing of all this wetness. Luckily I used waterproof paint :)
Hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween!
Happy Easter nom nom nom
We had a slow start to our day with most of the family more interested in napping than ham.
We did get around to our egg hunt. First the boys in the back yard. All went as smoothly as could be expected when there is a toddler boy involved. We came inside to setup Shelby's egg hunt. Vin helped me hide eggs for her and we went to let her in the house. We returned to find one baby brother holding an open egg, munching on a dog treat.
This didn't slow down Shelby who dove under furniture chasing rolling eggs.
Not my fault, man
One advantage of having two brothers running around the house is that Shelby no longer gets blamed for anything. We used to look at her suspiciously whenever something went missing. Can't find wedding ring? Stare at Shelby. Cant't find the remote? Stare at Shelby. She was never the culprit, but in these cases her undying devotion did not compensate for her lack of English skills.
Now that there are little boys getting into everything, Shelby is not the first suspect for anything anymore. I woke up this morning to find her chilling out in the middle if this toy apocalypse. I know she didn't do it. I don't even suspect her when I find chewed toys. That honor goes to the littlest boy, who is teething. We've seen him gnaw on the furniture, and even walk around the house with Shelby's chew antler in his mouth.
Mush! Mush I say!
Went out for a stroll and Shelby felt energetic enough to pull the stroller!
The Hazards of Christmas toys
We gave Vin these cool magnet building toys for Christmas and he and I both love building things with them. As for Mikey, he simply enjoys the bright colors and so these thing end up all over the house from the boys being boys.
The only drawback is for Shelby who will sometimes find her collar just a tad bit heavier.
