Back To Our Regularly Scheduled Program

Okay, so in celebration of my (totally unplanned and accidental) one month blogging hiatus, I thought I would actually post (you lucky reader you), YIPEE! And to all of my adoring, yeah, all 3 of you, lol.... I apologize from the depths of my soul and promise to go into complete and utter self loathing for at least, say, 8 minutes to compensate for the agony my procrastination may have caused. Sound fair?? Fabulous. There has, alas, been much activity around the Splitty household in the last month, so I will try to do a series of posts this week to get us all caught up, deal? Deal. No lashings required, right? Thanks. I appreciate your compassion and understanding, really I do. I so enjoy these little one-sided conversations we have, me and you. It makes me feel like all is good and well with the world, being as you're so agreeable when I do the talking for you and all. Let's do this more often, shall we? Riiiiight, anywho....

Let's start with the St. Paul School's Family Fall Festival. Wow, now say that out loud five times fast and see how much spit you can get on your screen. Nice. This event took place one week before Halloween and Maddie got to make the public debut of her Pink Princess Fairy costume, she was all a-twitter. There was a great turnout and lots of fun activities for us to enjoy. First was the Hay Rack ride, next off to make a pumpkin craft, then a few times through a fun maze that the 5th-8th graders constructed in their classrooms, (which Kavan kept mysteriously disappearing to run through over and over and over and over again, because there was a black light area at the end and it made his shoes light up really bright white, and that's super cool when you're two years old, or 28, whichever) and lastly the Trunk-or-Treating! What is Trunk-or-Treating you say? Allow me. This is a really neat idea that involves having each family park their vehicle with its trunk facing the sidewalk. Next, fill it with cool decorations and delightful candy. Then position a lawn chair nearby or enjoy the comfy repose of a chilly bumper. And finally, receive an enormous line of excited and candy hungry school children to partake in the bounty of your vehicular confections. It's pretty cool, if I do say so myself. It's like speed-dating (you know, with the timed sessions and the score cards, bells ringing in the background) ...only applied to trick-or-treating and children. A whole evening's worth of "houses" visited in a matter of mere minutes. Nobody gets tired, nobody gets ran over, lots of candy ends up in the bucket/bag and everyone goes home happy! More things in life should create such tremendous results, don't you think?? Here's the pictures to satisfy the right, again, all THREE of you. Later I will post about the REAL Halloween, so stay tuned and don't touch that dial. Wait, my computer doesn't have dials, does yours? Anyone? Hmmm. There I go with the one-sided conversations again, maybe I should get out of the house more.
Ain't She Purdy? And what's with those dimples?? Hello Kelly!!

My hand, young prince. Kavan kept kissing it, and no one really knows where he got that from, but Maddie seemed to think it was well deserved.

We met up with all of our friends from school. Maddie was the cutest one there, and I can say that because I'm her mother. You can think that, but you can't say it, because you're not her mom, and that would be rude. Really rude for Pete's sake, I mean who would be so judgmental like that??

The hay-rack ride was pretty fun. They all had big smiles the whole time.

Okay, now that's a cute kid. He's giving that other girl a run for her money. If only he had worn his costume, but he was afraid of it. Yeah, that's right, you heard me.

Future Martha Stewart Craft editor.

Future Martha Stewart Cr...wait, What? No, I meant future Pro Baseball player, yeah, that's what I meant. That's our 3rd and 4th grade teacher Mrs. Luce, she's my fav. She's a really great teacher! :O)

You must have been in rare form writing your blog. However, it was a good read and the pictures were great. Look forward to seeing more!

Rare form? Perhaps. I guess I needed an adult humor outlet that day, enough with the tickle fest and knock-knock jokes around here, you know? :O)

But...your kids are the cutest kids in the world. Oh, and I won't harrass you about blogging more. Oh wait, yes, I will. Even if you write about it.
