So long, crappy-dreary-chilly-muddy Michigan

Today is supposed to be my hurry-up-and-get-all-the-last-minute-things-done-before-my-Vegas-trip-tomorrow day. I got right out first thing in the morning to drop off the kids Halloween cards at the photo lab and get some shopping done at Wally World. Tried some clothes on, got depressed by my figure, was encouraged by how cute the Halloween cards turned out, went home. Putting these bags together was really fun. I like my candy to color-coordinate, so this is what I came up with (you know, if you care about that kind of thing too):
  • Starbursts
  • Mike-and-Ikes mini boxes
  • Double Bubble gum balls

It is soooo cute! We made a little assembly line and Eden and I put the candy in clear bags then stapled them shut with the cards.

Then we went to Eden's very first field trip... to the Erie Apple Orchard. In the rain. When we got there it was just a slight mist, which turned into a drizzle, which turned into the real thing just as the hayride was getting started. Do I need to tell you how cold you can feel when you're sitting in a pile of wet hay with only a jacket on? I swear it nearly turned into snow at one point. The kids pretty much threw their apples into their bag and high-tailed it back into the wagon. Poor Eden. This was the best picture I could get of her.

And so I happily leave this miserable weather behind me in the morning. Whoohoo! I'm worried about leaving Miss. Mommy's Girl, but it will be good for her to see that she can survive w/o me and good for ME to be away from her (just for a couple days!). I already have dinner reservations set up at Delmonico's and Les Artistes and plan to sleep as little as necessary. Don't want to waste any time, lol! I'll be back online Tuesday morning, but busy with work, so I'll post photos as soon as I can. Have a great weekend!!!
