Happy Halloween....

First off, anyone watch Dancing with the Stars out there besides me?? And if you do, who else is as pissed as I am that Sabrina got kicked off? Seriously, I am so not watching anymore...

Audrey is going to be a lady bug tonight, courtesy of my neighbor. And hopefully Ashley will be one of the costumes that my Mom bought her or I bought her tonight and won't decide to be something she has already. These are her two she has to chose from (or I will take all of her candy...)

And it is a really, really Happy Halloween for my boss at work. After 7 failed IVF cycles and no explanation for her infertility, my boss and her husband decided on adoption. They chose an agency that provided local babies to hopeful parents. After being on the wait list for only two months, they brought home Addison Grace yesterday....and she is beautiful. I got to hold her yesterday and to say she is a blessing is an understatement.

Have fun trick-or-treating or handing out candy tonight...

Wow..congrats to your boss..that is wonderful! LOVE the costumes -- can't wait to hear what she picked. I'm psyched cuz my weirdo children hate chocolate - so the girls already informed me that any chocolate they get, I can have. woo hoo!

Firstly congratulations to your boss. They must be over the moon.

I love both costumes but I would opt for the pumpkin, I look forward to hearing which one she chooses.

Also, congrats to your boss! My former boss/close friend adopted her daughter from China last Christmas and we are trick-or-treating together for the first time tonight! I can't wait!!

Love the costumes... and congrats to your boss... That is such great news. Our cousin is in the throws of the adoption process right now. We can't wait to finally meet our new little one....

Happy Halloween.

I was stunned she got kicked off!! She was by far the best one there - the first perfect 30 and she totally earned it. I just couldn't believe it - over Marie Osmond??

Great costumes by the way!!

I love the costumes! Adorable!!

Congrats to your boss- amazing. I'm sure they are just happy beyond words.

Btw- I read through all of your Disney posts. It sounds like you had such a wonderful time. And, now I am ready to go back!!

aww the baby story is really nice. and threaten her with you are wearing one of these 2 or you aren't going. you ARE the mom you know. I always took my mom, AND MY CANDY seriously! The candy will win out over what she wants to be. Those look very expensive and I'd say your pocketbook should beat her momentary whim! Bad Jill for being such a snot-I'm not sorry though. Stand up for yourself though mom!

Isabel said...

New babies are the best. Throw in talk of costumes and candy and it's a perfect Halloween!

Hello! I came over to say thanks for visiting my blog. That's the same Tinkerbell costume my daughter got for her birthday. SO cute! The fall Minnie is just adorable. That's a tough choice! Have fun tonight!

my4kids said...

I agree both costumes are too cute! I would have a hard time figuring out which to choose myself!

Pam said...

Both costumes are great! I think they are both too cute! Ashlyn was a ladybug when she was Audrey's age. What a blessing for your boss....and what a beautiful name!

Sunshine said...

I'm in shock too, I thought she was going to win the whole thing.

Amy said...

That's so amazing about your boss!

Wendy said...

What a great way to wrap up October!

Beccy said...

I love both the costumes.

Two months is so quick, the process here is much longer, after you apply and have been checked out you are then left for two-three years before the next stage happens. I have a friend who's hoping to adopt from Russia, she's been five years applying and it could take another eight months.
