Halloween - 2009

Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?

This is the costume that Shayna picked out on one of our numerous outings to Toys R' Us this past month. Tis the season for birthday parties AND Halloween! We have been to no less than 10 birthday parties in the last month and a half! We have Joey's birthday party this Sunday, one next Saturday, and one the following Saturday. After that, if your name isn't Mark, Lorie, or Shayna, we cannot come to your birthda
y party. I'm done... cooked!

Here is a cute picture of Shayna and our neighbor, Larissa, aka WordGirl!

Here's a great shot of the girls with our next door neighbors, Joan, Sal, and Jeeves!

Mark and Shayna taking a break from trick or treating!

Here's Shayna with her
Grammie & Granddad!

We had a great time scouring the neighborhood for lots of treats with family and friends! Next year, I'll be pushing another trick or treater in a stroller! Holy cow!

A Walk Around the Neighborhood

Last week, Shayna and I took a stroll around our neighborhood because I haven't really been exercising too much. I was doing my aqua-aerobics class with the "much older" ladies... but because baby is sitting right on top of my bladder... and there's a ton of jumping around... well, you get the picture...

Walking is probably my best bet... so we headed out to, what Shayna likes to call the, "faces." Every year, an elderly man trims his front hedges into these cool hair and beards for the "faces." Shayna absolutely LOVES when we drive by and check them out. Ever since she was a wee tiny one, she screams out, "FACES" every time we drive past!

We get so excited because we know that come October 1st, they go up... but on November 1st, they come down. This year, however, I might have to knock on that man's door and ask him to hold off one more day, in honor of Shayna's birthday!

Haircut, Finally!

Shayna has been complaining to whoever will listen, about her hair getting in her face and how annoying it is... so I finally got up the nerve to go and get it cut. The gal took about 4 inches off the back and gave her some bangs. It's a really cute cut and Shayna LOVES it! I think it makes her look like she's 10 and I guess I'm not ready for that. Oh and BTW, today was Face-painting at school (this week's letter is "F").

Almost Halloween...

Today, Shayna and I spent some time after school at Pa's Pumpkin Patch in Seal Beach. I guess it's a tradition for us to go there every October to check out rides and, of course, the petting zoo. It's also a time where I take a picture of Shayna with the ginormous pumpkins (see pictures at the end of this post).

We met our friends there today and had loads of fun!

First, we went on the slide.

Then, the train!

The Pink Elephants were next... (that's Shayna with her buddy, Camille)

The spinning Tub O' Fun, with her friend, Mason... where they spun around and around for what seemed like 45 minutes...

Here's Shayna, post Tub O' Fun! No, she didn't puke! What a trooper!

Then we were off to the "fun" picture taking area. Here's a funny one with Shayna and Mason!

This has to be my favorite shot of the day!

Here are the pictures from 2005 to 2009:
