It's November?!

Is anyone else wondering where 2011 went?

I'm still kind of reeling that last night was Halloween already. We always go out with our neighbours and it makes it extra fun for everyone. The kids like having some friends to run around with, and I like having another adult present to keep me sane! Here's a shot of my boys before we headed out:

As you can clearly see, Lord Voldemort teamed up with the local fire chief for a bit of trick-or-treating. An odd pairing, I have to admit. Someone should've told Firstborn to look more evil. That grin made him look more like Uncle Fester than the dark lord, and he was wearing it all night. Luckily, I thought ahead and made him that Slytherin patch so people knew not to hold back on the candy, lest they fall victim to the Cruciatus Curse.

This is it, people. My blogging has hit an all-time low this year, and now it's November. I'm officially committing to two posts a week from now on to ease myself back in. If I don't kick my butt in gear now, it's all downhill, and my brain will be mush by the New Year!

I rather like the grinning Voldemort, he makes the whole "serial killer" Voldemort piece a little more approachable and yet deceptive. Bravo!

I too have been rather distracted this year. I miss stalking the blogosphere. With any luck, I'll finish my degree, publish a book or two...and have time to blog about the good stuff, like my new kitten, or the petunias I planted.

PS Tell the Fireman he looked tres realistic, I thought he was over just to take out the dark Lord.


The boys are adorable! So glad to see pictures of them; I think they must have grown a couple of inches! Don't stay away so long! Just a quick hello now and then to let us know your ok!

So cute! I love their unique costumes.

Blogging is so time consuming...I feel your pain!

Great outfits! And yes, how the heck did it get to November. My last few months are also rather lacking in blog fodder and I'm terrible at catching up with others too.

Must try harder! (That's me, not you - but two posts a week is a great goal - go for it!)
