I don't know if I can adequately describe the type of fiasco our pumpkin carving was tonight.
But let's see:
Baby C is sick with another runny nose. BOOOOO!!!! So he's toddling around, nose running, feverish and overall grumpy.
The house is a DISASTER, thanks to me not being organized today and trying to get too many things done with a sick baby.
Our pumpkin is half rotten.
We try to clear off dinner from the table, and as Mr. H goes to put the leftovers in the fridge, they fall all over the floor and pasta flies everywhere.
I attempt to convince Mr. H that I want to listen to Christmas music while we carve. He refuses. :) We choose the Beatles, and decide it will be a family tradition.
So with the Beatles blaring, we start to carve.
Carving a rotten pumpkin is pretty easy, surprise!
As we lift the top of our pumpkin off, there is a shattering of glass, and to the music of "Can't Buy Me Love", Baby C has knocked over our glass candy jar, shattering it to smithereens.
Baby C is terrified, and we all jump into action.
So, with the Beatles blaring in the background, Baby C sobbing, Mr. H attempts to vacuum up the glass.
But whoops. The vacuum decides it's sucking power is zero.
Mr. H is down on all fours, trying to sweep and pick up the glass.
Baby C is much more feverish, and is so sad.
Mr. H and I look at each other
and decide to call it a night.
We drop that pumpkin right back outside, and get little baby C to sleep.

|I think Mr. H's face says it all|
But on happier, more brighter notes:
*I'm teaching a little girl piano and voice lessons that lives in our court. It has been such a blast. But today, she sang "Tomorrow" from Annie, and it made me tear up. She was awesome and truly singing from her little soul. It made me so happy.
*Baby C said a new word today: "BANANA!"
*Have you seen these two videos?
*Got to talk to the sister tonight. And found out we both love the movie "Steel Magnolias"
