Everyone Hail to to the Pumpkin Song

(I’m 90% sure I’ve already used ‘This is Halloween’ as a post title) I really don’t have much to say, other than I’m in the midst of a lot of things. With Halloween on Thursday, I’ve got character parades to prepare for and a class Halloween Party to supervise. I love the way that the

This is Halloween! (Almost)

Halloween is upon us! Amidst the deluge of pumpkin flavored products (avoid the Pumpkin Spice M&Ms), we’ve been gearing up for the holiday. The kidlets have picked out their costumes for the year- Thor and Captain America. Costumes bought, props procured. You didn’t think I’d miss the chance to play Thor for a bit… not

Halloween costumes, Assemble.

I know. You’re thinking (especially if you watched yesterday’s Vlog) that I’ve lost my mind. Shortly after Halloween, the Little Kidlet and the Oldest Kidlet announced that this year they wanted to go as Boba Fett (LK) and a Stormtrooper (OK). Considering it’s my year to make costumes, I was already looking forward to the

Day of the Dead

Today is Dia de los Muertos, the day where some Hispanic people honor those who have passed. I have been wanting to start celebrating this with my children- I think it’s an extraordinarily healthy way that one of the many cultures that are part of my background treats death. The dead are never really gone,

This is Halloween (and PR done right)

Happy Halloween! In case you don’t follow me on Twitter, Tumblr or “the book” – here’s a picture of my kidlets. This was how our day started. The skies were chilly, and the fog was thick. Sort of the perfect weather to start off Halloween with! So far we’ve had a busy day. TheBoy took

How did I do?

After last week’s admission that I put off sewing Halloween costumes until the last minute, I should explain how I handled my deadline of 4pm on Saturday. Thursday I cheated on my diet and made myself feel horribly sick. Sometimes I can gluten myself and get away with it. That was not one of those

Why do I do this to myself?

My name is Whitney, and I’m a procrastinator. (Hi, Whitney) Time and time again, I start an ambitious project with a deadline and then keep convincing myself I still have time to finish it. This time, it’s two Halloween costumes that I have to have finished by Saturday afternoon. So far I’ve copied the pattern

This was Halloween.

This is a tale of half-hearted Halloweens and cat pee. My kids are at that stage where they’re just starting to get Halloween. The little one is a little scare of decorations, but the older one is embracing all of that. We’d had big plans for the weekend. We were going to a family Halloween

This is Halloween…

…or at least the Halloween Costume Parade. Remember those? I loved walking through all the classrooms, and showing off my outfit. Well, yesterday was the oldest kidlet’s turn. The Preschool had a big day planned. The costume parade followed by a Halloween party of epic proportions. The parents were all assigned things to bring. Because

Beds, Party Planning and… I’m sure I forgot something.

This was meant to post yesterday, but didn’t. Oops. I admit it- I am horrible when it comes to planning parties for the little guy. He has some major food allergies, but isn’t anaphylactic. So I tend to just make him one thing and another for everyone else. Since I’m going to start experimenting more
