Lately...

We have been busy around here!  And I when I have sat down, I just haven't felt like being on the computer!  So here is a summary:

I had to make a Halloween treat for MOPS last week and I decided that I was going to make witch fingers.  I had made them before and they were awesome!  I was so excited to show everyone my spooky fingers!  Here is what they looked like when I made them a few years ago
 
Creepy right?!  So, this time I decided instead of making the sugar cookies from scratch, I would just a mix.  Save some time.  Bad idea.  Here is what my fingers looked like:
 
hahaha, BAD!  and super fat!  Luckily I only put 4 in the oven to test it.  So I ended up making eyeball cupcakes... which turned out okay, but since it wasn't my first choice I was scrambling to get them made in time!  And on the way to MOPS my pan slid and sent the eyes rolling all over the pan...

We have also been raking!
 
(and I use the term "we" loosely)  Colin had a stick and was sending leaves flying everywhere!

Last Friday was a crazy day: I had a full morning and afternoon planned for Colin and I.  Funny how when you have plans... they never go how you want them to! 
I got Colin strapped in the car, went to turn it on.... and nothing.  My car was broken.
Luckily Garet was leaving for work at the same time, so he was able to jump start it (it was the battery).  Then we drove over to Car Store #1 to get the battery checked.  They quoted us a price, Garet okay'd it, he left, the guy came over to me and re-quoted me the correct price.  It was $40 more.  Called G, he said leave and go to Car Store #2.
Drove to Car Store #2 (it took almost 30 minutes!  My dumb GPS kept taking me down dead ends!  Ohhhh I was frustrated!!)  Get there, they seemed to be very inconvenienced to replace my battery.  Two of them were kind of going back and forth...
Woman: Do you want to take it?
Man: It don't matter.  If you don't want to.
Woman: I mean I can do it, you don't want to?
Man: Well go ahead.  I don't need to...
blah blah blah
So finally I said, well can one of you do it please?!
And they did [finally!] While I was waiting I looked down at Colin and he was kind of waddling and saying "wet".  Poor bud.  He had pee'd through his [cloth] diaper.  So... I had to change him on the floor (actually I had a changing pad, thank goodness!) of this dirty Car Store #2.  But his pants were still wet.  Oh well.  I left them on him until we got in the car.
THEN after all that, I drove by home and ran in to get another pair of pants for Colin.  While I was running, Suzi escaped... luckily she was just sniffing around the car and came right back inside.
THEN we went downtown so I could register and vote.  The line was long but I figured that I had made it this far, we were finishing this errand.  Colin was an angel!  He waited patiently in line with me.  Then once we were in the room I had to register, so I gave Colin a pen and paper.  He sat on the floor drawing.  Everytime the line would move I would say "scoot Colin!" and he would =)  By the end of the line his pants were all bunched up from scooting, but he was so well behaved, I couldn't be more proud! 

Dare I say that Colin is much better in public than here around the house!  If he is going crazy here I normally load him up and take him into public.  And it works.  (hope I didn't just jinx it!)

Anyway.... that was quite a morning... we have also been painting pumpkins:

Sporting this cute Halloween shirt, which I made.  He loves the mouth =)
 
So, that's us lately.  And I can't believe that October is almost over!  This year is going by so fast!
