picture this

went birthday shopping for true at a real toy store. they let him try on the birthday hat and he found an intricate wooden 3-d dragon puzzle that he couldn't live without. it's wrapped in the back of the car. i am a sucker for a birthday boy. plus, check out the cool new toys i saw...

my worst nightmare, in malleable plastique.

another classic playset, the magical impaling unicorn. sorry i didn't get a better shot of this one. i mean, only a fraction of the world's population ever gets to see a unicorn in real life, right? how fun to recreate that magical moment when the unicorn succumbs to nature and lances his victim through the chest. a mime, why not? two classic annoying creatures in one action playset. ya'll know this is going on the top of my list to santa this year.

the boys drew hair on their chests on the way home. i rarely know what goes on in the back seat on the interstate. this time, there was evidence.

and we finally carved the pumpkin.

i'm exhausted. still, though my blodge may be stale and stanky, i feel quite accomplished. tired, but accomplished.

ya'll have a good week!

Shoe, I love the "hair on the chest" one...Princess KK drew all over herself the other night and she had to learn that it was "only for [the Eldest]" because Eldest has tattoos so it only stands to reason that we all have pictures on us, right??

Ok, I need to know where I can get the Crazy Cat Lady figure. STAT! And you pumpkin turned out adorable!

This whole post cracks me up.

Re-Pete and her friend once drew ALL OVER their faces with black and red markers- can't remember why. Funny, the black came off easier than the red. My oldest was "watching" her once and she colered her legs, feet, and abdomen bright blue. Praticng for all those tattoos she's apparently getting later in life....

You and your boys are awesome!

Love the pumpkin, btw.

Hah, love the unicorn killing mime. I am going to steal it -- I hope you do not mind. Happiest of Birthdays to the boy.

Gotta get me one of those mime impaling unicorns. Dashboard material.

The cat lady is pretty cool though, I think I used to date her in another life.

And a happy birthday to True. Our birthday "season" cranks up right around the holidays as well (just started last week with my eldest daughter's ninth) so that is always fun (really). I get to share mine with my youngest, so I know there will be a birthday party in the offing for at least the next few years.

I dig the ingenutiy, but how many "comb over chests" have you really seen? Show 'em how to draw hair right. 'K?
The punkin.. decent. No punkin' guts comin' out the mouth but that's 'Neck stuff I s'pose.
Happy B-day to True. The pink hat's got to go though. He is from Texas now is he not?
