Flashback - Halloween 2005

Here's a quick flashback to Halloween 2005. Hmm...Min's costume (a strawberry) was pretty similar to this year's pumpkin. Perhaps we will continue with a fruit theme in 2008 - stay tuned!

Happy Halloween!

Halloween 2007 marked Margot's first true Halloween. She eagerly trick-or-treated in our neighborhood, and flashed a winning grin every time she grabbed a fistful of candy instead of just one or two pieces. There was one house, though, where she refused to take candy, saying, "I don't like any of this candy." (That was a little embarrassing.)

She received lots of compliments on her costume, and many people asked if I made it myself. No, I am not that crafty. I don't even sew buttons unless I have to. One man went so far as to say, "Really? Because you look like the kind of woman who would make such a costume." (WHAT? What is that supposed to mean???)

Happy Halloween everyone! Margot is currently in a candy-induced coma right now. Wish her teachers luck tomorrow - I am sure she, and the rest of her class, will be a cranky, stomach-ached, mess.

The Great Pumpkin

Today was Margot's class trip to the pumpkin patch. I'll let the pictures do the talking...

Plotting her strategy:

Hmmm...this one? Or this one?

The perfect little pumpkin:

Jekyll and Hyde

This photo amazingly captures Margot's recent Jekyll and Hyde personality. Half of her seems to be in the light (our sweet, easy baby girl) and darkness creeps across the other half of her face (she's been defiant and bossy the past few weeks).

I'm not one to raise my girl via parenting manuals, so I'm not sure how Spock and Sears and Brazelton would label her, but I think Jekyll and Hyde is an appropriate description. I'm certain it's all par for the course, but it can be challenging nonetheless.

Margot's First Haircut, in Photos

(She loved it by the way. Not one moment of hesitation or whining!)

This is Margot's hair before the cut:

And during:

Getting a blowdry:

And after! (No more mullet!)

Video - Queen of the Knock-Knock Jokes

Her punchlines are a little off, but they still make me laugh!

Back from a long hiatus

I'm sorry I haven't been posting. It's the result of me working too much coupled with a camera whose flash doesn't work.

Can you believe that Margot is losing her baby face? Look at this!
