a shadow falls

Something has taken place.  Something my eyes cannot see.  But little miss sunshine scowls and won't stop.  The moon has been swelling until it reached its full moon peak last night.  She has had a few diaper blow outs.  She sticks her finger up her nose and says "owie".  But, baffled I remain.  Quite frankly, she's been a big pain in the butt.

Zander describes her joy as Mexican candy.  Chili powder coated candy.  It makes perfect sense if you personally knew our gnome. 

here is to having wisdom in waiting for whatever the foul thats making her fussy will pass.

Haphazard Halloween

 Around our house, we don't buy costumes, and we don't D-I-Y costumes either.  Let the photos be proof of how much fun can be had from your closet at the eleventh hour! 
 Albert Einstein in the making......
 Albert(a), extremely  bristled and ruffled up. A few jelly beans later and those pathetic excuses for eyebrows were forgotten.  She wouldn't put up with a mustache, though....  She is an unfortunate mix of einstein, and an  oompa loompa.  Hmm.... next year I think she could easily pull off the creepy servants of Mr Wonka. In the mean time, I must keep her from watching any Disney princess movie that could thwart my plans.       
 Round Two.  A clown dolly?  A hunter army guy dude person?
 I was in the process of going for a windup doll.
