Happy Halloween

Even though I am majorly behind on posts/pictures, I thought I'd share the Halloween pictures from today.  Davis was Bum.blebee from Trans.formers for Halloween but went to a wizard/Hog.warts party earlier today.  Samuel was a dragon.  He LOVED his costume.  Both Chris and I chased him around for at least 20 minutes once we put on his costume and neither of us was able to get a decent picture because he was too busy running around.  The ones here are the best that I got.  I hope you enjoy.

At the Hog.warts party:

Look at the cake my friend made.  It was amazing.


On our way to the neighborhood party.  It was Samuel's first time in the wagon and he really liked it.

The dragon:

These are very typical of the shots we got.

The Dumbest I've Read in a Long Time

I just read this article on MSN about parents hosting swine flu parties so that their children can be exposed to people with the flu.  All I have to say about that is WTF are they thinking.  Crazy.  I can't understand the reasoning behind purposefully exposing your child to any illness, let alone one that has so many unknowns at this time.

2.  My mom died in 2004 from Leukemia and now I raise money yearly for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and I hope to one day train for a half marathon with Team in Training.
3.  I am a lawyer but have never set foot in a courtroom other than for jury duty.  I do corporate/contracts and would die if I ever had to go to court for any reason.
4.  I actually did really well in law school and served as Editor in Chief of our law review.  Although sometimes I lack common sense, I have a lot of "book sense".
5. The only sport I was ever half way decent at as a kid was swimming.  I "played" basketball and softball but was not good at all.
6.  Before visiting Chris' grandparents' house in rural Mississippi after we got married, I had never been on a farm or out of a city. 
7.  I am horrible with directions.  If it weren't for goo.glemaps, I'd be lost a lot.  I really want a GPS but am too cheap to buy one.

Happy Children's Day

Today (October 1) is Dia de los Ninos in Guatemala. A friend of mine who is a missionary in Guatemala mentioned it on so I did some minimal research on the holdiay (Thanks Wiki.pedia!). I am thinkig that as Samuel gets older, celebrating this day might be a good way to celebrate his Guatemalan heritage. I need to research some more to find out how this day is celebrated (if any reader knows, let me know) but celebrating kids sounds like a wonderful idea.

Just curious, for those of you with children of different race or heritage, do you do anything special (or do you plan to do anything) to celebrate the differences or celebrate any holidays specific to your child's race/heritage?
