Have you ever wondered if trick-or-treaters had some way to communicate whether or not you give out crappy candy? Well the secret has been revealed!!! Here's a key to the code kids leave behind for other kids on Halloween night. Be sure to check YOUR driveway tomorrow morning and see what they thought of you!
I think of all the ads to come out of the official Obama campaign, this one is my favorite. Not just for its cleverness, but because the music in the background comes from one of our favorite bands, The Weepies.
Biff and I headed to the city clerk's office for early voting today. I can't wait to tell him about how together, we changed history.
So today Kevin and I took our Infant/Child CPR class. It was helpful and informative, since things have changed since the last time I was CPR certified (15+ years ago). What was not helpful was being 8 months pregnant. While I didn't win the award for Most Pregnant Lady In The Class (there was another couple and the woman is due on November 14th) it was still very difficult and uncomfortable getting up and down off the floor, bending over giving rescue breaths. My hips/pelvic problems didn't make things any easier, and I've paid the price by being pretty uncomfortable all day today. But it was informative, and now I feel 100% confident being able to say, "Everyone stay calm! You! Call 911!"
Today is the last day to register to vote. If you haven't registered yet, or your address has changed, go to your local post office and fill out a form. It's easy and today is the last day to do it!
I carved my first pumpkin in years and years today. Following the instructions (and using a stencil) from Yes We Carve, I proudly present...my Barack O'Lantern!
How much bigger is this kid going to get?
Trying to head off a scolding for barking at the UPS man, Digory Atticus Dog released his own report Thursday that clears him of any wrongdoing.
Kevin and Shelby's youngest beagle is the subject of a parental investigation into whether he inappropriately barked at a UPS man delivering a very large box to the Hogan household. The box turned out to contain a baby crib intended for the future Food-Dropper, scheduled to arrive around Christmas. The crib is a gift for the Food-Dropper from Shelby's parents [ed. note: Thanks Mom and Dad!!!].
Kevin and/or Shelby are expected to release their own findings Friday. If found guilty of barking at the UPS man, Digory would be subjected to a mild scolding and would possibly not receive a cookie. Digory insists that the alleged barking, if in fact it took place, was responsible for scaring off a potential home invasion/murderer and therefore a cookie should be the least of his rewards.
"Look, all I know is that this guy was at the threshhold of our home," Digory wrote in his report. "The box could have contained a bomb, or anything, really. The fact is, once I made my presence known, he fled the scene."
The UPS man reportedly said that Digory was "cute."
The parental investigation found today that Digory did indeed bark at the UPS man and is, as Kevin put it in the 1,000 page report, "Guilty as sin."
Digory immediately released a statement blaming Al Qaeda, Barack Obama, the Democrats, and the mainstream media.
On Saturday, Sarah Palin came to Orange County for a fundraising dinner. Naturally Kevin and I had to go.
We even got photographed by the Orange County Register! Sort of.
There were over 300 people at the rally. Click here to see our whole slideshow!
