An Early Halloween Scare

2013-09-20T10:03:44.744-07:00

(image) We found this great mask at Jo-ann's last week. It's called "Old Wizard". This mask looks pretty creepy on an adult. On our little 5 year old son, he looked just like the small hitchhiking ghost from Disney's Haunted Mansion ride. Being the Disney fans that we are, we didn't hesitate to decide on a costume theme for the year, and we purchased the mask right away. With coupons ofcourse, saving us 60%.

It's only the middle of September. What am I going to do with the awesome mask for the next month and a half until we are able to dress up and really use it? Yeah, I guess I could just leave it in the closet until we are ready for it. But you know what's even better? Using it to scare the loved ones I live with. Since January we have been living with my Dad and two younger sisters (currently 17 and 13). I think it's time they have a good dose of what I like to do. The best part is they won't see it coming. 

My 17 year old sister was upstairs in her room. All I had to do was wait for her to come down. I popped the mask on and silently came out of our room and up her stairs about half way. Then I stopped and waited. Thankfully it didn't take too long. I timed it right to know she'd be coming down soon to shower and go to bed. I saw her shadow headed towards the door. This was it, the fun was about to explode. 

She came around the corner and she was looking at her phone, so it took a second for her to look down the stairs and notice this old man (in a dress) standing there staring at her. Oh how I wish I had a camera rolling. First she jumped and then she started screaming. First scream she tried to run towards the wall, second scream she turned around and ran to her room, slamming the door behind her. I've never gotten someone that good before so I guess I wasn't expecting the screams. They were loud and long and I was stunned for a moment. 

I was finally able to work through my shock and laughter to pull the mask off and go upstairs after her. I was laughing so hard I tried to choke out, "I'm sorry, that was so good, but I'm sorry!" and she was laughing so hard she couldn't breathe. It was an amazing scare for the books and everyone in the house heard it. 

I told her I didn't blame her if she hated me for a while, but she said it was fine. She admits I got her really good.... now I have to anticipate her return scare. She says she'll plan a good one.





Oh, How I Miss Blogging

2013-09-17T21:55:02.770-07:00

Life has been one crazy busy ride since my daughter arrived almost 3 years ago. With two kids, even being a stay at home mom, I have had the hardest time keeping up with my blog. I give some serious props to all the moms out there who do it consistently and have continued to do so through the years. 

I miss my blogging. 

In the last year I had one interesting adventure after another. 

One year ago on Mother's Day I was at the beach with my mother. There was a serious situation right next to us in which a young girl and her uncle dug a tunnel, and when she tried to crawl through it, it collapsed onto her. Buried under 3 feet of sand, this girl almost lost her life. Had her uncle not come to us for help in digging her out, she may not be alive today. Three of us dug her out as fast as we could while my mom watched my kids and yelled for others to come help. When that girls head finally popped up completely sand covered and in shock, I ran faster than my legs could carry me and panted hard, barely enough breath to tell the lifeguard, "girl.... needs help..... buried....." That changed my life. 

The following week, I began medication in the egg donation process I had been in for a few months prior. I had a very tough time with the medications, but I completed them and donated eggs. Eggs which made two gorgeous healthy baby girls that I had the beautiful opportunity to meet and see the wonderful family I helped create. That changed my life. 

I watched my first live birth as my youngest nephew was born. That changed my life. 

I was in a kinda bad accident in October. My first accident, and very scary. Head on, going straight through a green light someone turned left in front of me (and my friend) thankfully no kids were with us. No joke, one month later my husband and I (again, no kids) got rear ended. It was a week after we got out new car. I am still anxious about driving, but I am physically and mentally recovering. Yet, it changed my life... perhaps more than the last three things I mentioned. 

Finally, we moved in with my dad and two younger sisters to help them out after the loss of my step mom two years ago. Things are going wonderful. We have helped each other. It has been great. It too, has changed my life. 

Life is a beautiful, wonderful thing that I cannot wait to experience more of. 

Between two kids, a husband, family, crafting, cooking, friends, exercise, and all the other things that are life.... I have the hardest time finding time to blog at the same time that I have the inspiration. I post this mainly to send the energy out into the universe that time may balance out and allow more blogging. Think of it as an update and post-it/to-do list :)

Definitely one of my faves for this "30 Days of Books". The author has an adorable concept and super cute names for her characters. It's a romance story of monsters. 

Short and sweet on this book. It's awesome!

I really liked this story. It's a great message about how two lives can cross each other's paths without realizing it. The best part is that the characters have wonderful ideas for teamwork so everyone can be happy. 

The kids were excited to hear the story progress. And it seemed to me it made them feel happy when everything worked out.

Immediately, I fell in love with the art in this book. It's bright, fun, colorful, and artistic. To me, the definition of artwork for a child's book. 

I do think the art is far better than the story, but it's still kind of a cute story. The kids are having a great time, til a secret is revealed.

By Patricia Coombs


 This book made me feel like I was reading a kids version of the movie "Halloween 3". That part of the Halloween series strayed away from Michael Myers, and they don't often show it. If you've seen it, you will know exactly what I mean. If not, you aren't missing much. 

It's a cute idea about this little witch trying to stop some trouble. Not "A" material in my opinion.

30 Days of Books: 24: Skelly the Skeleton Girl

Skelly the Skeleton Girl(image)
By Jimmy Pickering

This might possibly be my favorite book yet from this 30 Days of Books. I had a lot of fun with the art, the story, everything. It has such a Tim Burton feel I had to do a double take on the author. 

I always get into the books with the kids, but this one I decided to go all out with my character voices. My son had me rolling in laughter because right when I start in with the "voice" of Skelly, he says, "Wow, Skelly has a really cute voice".  He commented on a few more characters as well. I thought it was adorable that he seemed to think these were just the voices of the characters. He had me read it again right after. 

Thankfully, this story is short and sweet because my better voices take quite a toll on my throat. I highly recommend this book, and it looks like it has a sequel as well.

This book is probably a little better for toddlers and preschoolers. It's from Handy Manny, which is a Playhouse Disney cartoon show. 

The book has a good length of story, with lift flap pages to explore. In the back you find some stickers to dress up the characters in the book. Cute story.

Most of us know the traditional Christmas Eve story. How many know of the Halloween version?

It's a super cute twist on the classic tale where you hear all about the witches and ghosts setting up for the next day. Join in the Halloween party fun with this cute kids book. The art is your typical kids book style. Every page looks like a lot of fun.

The Berenstain Bears Trick or Treat(image)
By Stan & Jan Berenstain


We are a Berenstain Bears family over here. We have almost the whole collection. Naturally, we are fans of this Halloween themed book as well.

I really enjoy the books because the stories have good meaning, and are usually great lessons for kids and parents alike. They show examples of real situations kids may find themselves in, and this book is no different. Halloween can be spooky for little ones, and the book helps deal with that as well as safety on Halloween night.

This is a beautiful book. The story (well, it's a story within a story really) is very nice. There is certainly a Zen feel to the whole book and the artwork is just amazing! I think this is a wonderful addition to a Halloween book collection. It's not scary at all, so it is wonderful for all ages.

My son found this one at our local Goodwill bookstore. He has entertained himself for hours ever since. He takes the book to kindergarten sometimes as well and all the other kids are just as enthralled as he is with the book. 

It's a really fun and detailed pop-up book with spooky decorations from top to bottom. What a fun house to explore!

I LOVED this book. I'm a sucker for those run on stories that are just like the old lady who swallowed the fly. I love to see how fast I can read them. 

This book is particularly fun because each page shows a small part of the next picture so you and the kids can guess what is going to come next.

The artwork is nice for artwork, but I thought it was a little creepy for kids. Though, my kids didn't seem freaked out by it.

It also left open great opportunities for imaginative play with pumpkins and made up pumpkin patches.

I see the interesting twist the author put on the classic tale, but I am not fully impressed. I would have liked it a little more if she had done her own thing instead. It's still a very nice story about being different and finding someone who is compatible with you where you least expect it. It's also nice to have a story that has a unique person feel totally confident with who they are. That is a great role model for young ones. For all of us really.

By Erica Silverman

I enjoyed this story. I thought it was set up like a typical children's book. You kind of guess what is going to happen, but then again you don't. There is a short and simple lesson about not underestimating someone, knowing strength is more than muscle, and the important effect of teamwork. However, the problem for us was the story stumped my 5 year old because he couldn't figure out why they wouldn't just do the simple solution. His idea was far more brilliant than the one in the book.... but I guess the simple solution wouldn't make a silly story now would it?

By Joe Troiano

Spookly is pretty popular. I heard about him a few years ago from another blog, and was delighted when I scored a hardcover at the dollar book store. I've since heard alot about him, and seen many Halloween events for kids centered around the character.

It's a story about a pumpkin who is the "odd one" in the patch. All the others tease him, only to find later, he saves the day. Your typical, "love people no matter what they look like" story with a cute pumpkin twist. Certainly a fun one to add to a Halloween book collection.

Journey through a whole school year (in rhyme) with a group of young witches while they learn their craft from Miss Thornapple. One of those cutesy witch stories. I think it would make a very cute TV show as well.

Even if you don't know Wubbzy, or aren't that familiar with him, this book is still a really cute story. We are fans of Wubbzy, so I try to imitate the character voices while I read it and that can be fun and challenging. 

Wubbzy and his friends are at a costume party for Halloween and he wants to create the scariest costume there. What happens surprises even him!

The book comes with a punch out Wubbzy mask for your children to play with after they read the book.

Be prepared to hear the laugh over and over though, I'm surprised my kids haven't killed the battery yet. The front cover has soft velvet for some touch sensory as well.

I Spy books are great for all ages, in my opinion. Even I enjoy looking for the hidden objects within the pages. The smaller ones can usually find the objects as well if you read the words to them. My son is 5 now, and he has been a major I Spy fan for at least the last 3 years. Now, he reads a little and helps his sister (2 1/2) find the hidden objects as well. 

This book has a a spooky theme going on in each page of riddles and searches. We keep all our Halloween books in our Halloween decorations box that comes out October 1st every year. (Same thing applies to our Christmas collection) So, seeing these Halloween books are a special treat. My son was so thrilled to see this book when we brought the box out. Searching for things is a great brain activity too!

I Ran into Captain Obvious Today

2012-05-30T10:09:51.305-07:00

I only had to walk around the corner. Two blocks really. I didn't pop my 2 year old in the stroller knowing it wasn't too long of an adventure. We crossed the street, picked up my son from preschool, and off we went to the market to pick something up.

When we came to the busy intersection, we all stopped to wait for the signal to cross the street. Right when the light flashed for us to cross, my son dropped the papers out of his homework folder. Well, that was also the moment a breeze came through, taking his papers with it. Queue son crying. When one paper flew far out into the street, he let out a loud, very fearful scream. My daughter (who's hand I was still holding and couldn't let go of to catch the papers) felt his intense emotion over losing his papers and started to cry herself.

So, there was the picture. Scurrying across the street, a kid on each hand, both crying, a water bottle hanging from the fingers of one hand, two bags on the other, my son's papers jammed quickly back into his folder, and me trying to calm them both down. That's when Captain Obvious passed by me and turned around to say, "You've got your hands full!".
