Happy Halloween

This year Brendan and his friend James decided they were to old to go trick or treating so Brendan invited his friend to sleep over on Halloween night.

They played video games and passed out candy but I think they ate more than they gave away.

Zanders (Black Spiderman) friend Craig is James' little brother and Zander and Craig were upset because their brothers were having a sleepover without them so Craig's mother invited Zander for a sleep over and trick or treating. Zander didn't make it through the night though, he never does, but he tried.

Saturday afternoon Tanner's best friend Rylee called and invited Tanner (Grimm Reaper) to a Halloween party.

So that left Sarah(Alex Russo) with nothing to do and no friends to come over at the last minute.
But it turned out okay because we made it a girls night. We went shopping to by her a new outfit and went Trick or Treating, just the girls.
The Mitchells also stopped by after their night of mayhem.

Maddy(Supergirl) couldn't take anymore excitement and crashed.

Hannah (Batgirl) was her usual self with plenty of attitude.
Trey's costume fell apart so he pulled his pants down and turned his hat sideways and went as a skater.
This is Karian's best friends daughter Hayley (Thumbalina). She insists that she is a Mitchell and doesn't understand why she can't live at KK's house. Everywhere the Mitchels go she has to go to.
And of coarse Maddie's baby Annabelle. She treats her like a real baby and insists the everyone else in the family does the same.

Under Construction

Having the house remodeled is very entertaining for Sarah and Zander. They try to fallow the boys around the entire time they are here asking questions and taking pictures. I'm sure it's annoying for the boys but they aren't annoying me so I'm not so concerned at this point. The slide show is our house under construction from Sarah's point of view.

Not Sleeping

I don't sleep a lot when Oscar isn't here so i sit in my big comfy chair reading until I fall asleep. I'm okay with not sleeping, I function better with less than 5 hours of sleep but I think my bad sleeping habits are rubbing off on the kids.

Zander's a daddies boy so when Oscar is gone Zander can't sleep. He gets up to wander the house at night and sneak a little TV and then everyday when I wake up I find him on the floor next to either mine or Bobos bed.

Sarah can't sleep without Zander so now when she wakes up in the middle of the night she goes to find Zander.

Sometimes I catch her looking for Zander and i send her back to bed. instead of going to her own bed she gets in Zanders and reads until she falls asleep. i have no idea how long she stays awake in there but at least she isn't sneaking TV.

I've also been finding Brendan still curled up on his closet floor reading when I go in to wake him up but he's still awake so i can't ever get a picture. He says he sleeps a little and then reads a little but I'm not sure he isn't staying up all night.

No More Dog :(

Our bad word neighbor called the city to complain about the dogs so many time that the city deemed the dog a neighborhood nuisance so the dogs had to go. They gave me a ticket for $6000($2000 per dog) and told me to deal with the dogs because if he called again the would be back to give me another ticket. I did call the courthouse and explained the whole neighbor situation, they never came out to give me a warning, and that the dogs were no longer living at our house and got them to bring the ticket down to $265. It's very odd to not have them here so in December I'm gonna bring one of the dogs back and we'll just see what happens.


Our new Saturday activity when we don't have babies and there isn't construction going on is to hang out in our pj's all day and do puzzles.

Tanners pieces that almost fit together perfectly and the pictures line up exactly, but they don't actually go together.

Brendan doesn't really like to do puzzles so he takes pictures and makes lunch while the rest of us work.

Tashas Shower

I was supposed to host the shower for Tasha but Oscar called Thursday just before midnight to tell me he was flying out Monday and he wanted me to fly to Mississippi in the morning to spend the weekend with him so I did. I made the cake, threw all the food together and stuffed it the freezer, put out all the decorations and party supplies, and called my sisters and told them they were on their own for the weekend. I flew to Mississippi leaving them to fend for themselves. I only felt a little guilty for missing the shower that i was hosting and dumping everything including my ids and mom on KK but they took pictures and Sarah and Hannah had plenty of stories to tell when I got home.
