Happy Halloween!

I was worried about the whole costume thing for Halloween this year since Lila DOES NOT like anything on her head... no bows, no hats, nada. So when I found this zebra costume I held my breath hoping she would just let me try the hat on her head... when she didn't immediately reach up and grab it, I tied it. When I took her to a mirror she LOVED it... she just stood there and laughed and laughed! So I learned that Halloween costumes aren't so bad after all... maybe we'll get the bows back out and give them another try! It's wishful thinking...

We'll be trick or treating for the first time tonight. We are going to a few neighbors and then off to trunk or treat at church where I know the candy is safe. Does anyone else worry about unsafe candy? Becoming a mother sure has put the fear of all things in me! I seem to question the safety of everything these days... Wayne would laugh at that statement since just today Lila fell off the couch and has a nice shiner to prove it! We were playing and she got a little too excited... this isn't the first time and certainly won't be the last... (remember at two weeks my little five pound preemie somehow rolled between our wrought iron headboard and the wall). Everytime something like that happens I get hysterical, pick up the phone to call 911 and then realize she's fine... I cry longer than she does! What can I say... I'm a mess! Anyway... back to Halloween... We're wishing you lots of treats and no tricks this Halloween!! Have fun and be safe!!

Hello Blogging World!

Okay, so Sarah convinced me... Here is my first blog. I am a little unsure of this whole thing but love keeping up with friends through their blogs, so I guess it is time for me to give back. You shouldn't have high expectations for my entries... there will probably be many misspellings, poor punctuation, and bad grammar... I will try to post pictures and let you know of all the funny things Lila does... she sure keeps us laughing! Now a friendly nudge to laura, mal, kristen, krissi, sherry, and heather... time to join us in the blogging world!

I really don't have much to say today except that I am so happy it is FRIDAY!!! Lila is cutting teeth right now and not sleeping well. It is the weekend so it's Daddy's turn to get up with her!! The past few nights we've been up every few hours.... Good luck Wayne! Maybe I will get a good nights rest and learn how to post pictures and make my blogspot "shnazie" (is that my first misspelling?) Check back later...
