Veteran's Day

Today and 9/11 always choke me up. 
Thank you veterans. 

Remember this post about my grandfather? I ended with a note about Taps and today NPR has a story about it. It's worth listening to. 

Especially today.

the original pebbles

I still don't have my camera back so I haven't been able to upload Halloween photos.
But, Maya's teachers create a daily page with photos of the children's doings and I asked them to email me this one of Pebbles. [Along with Maya's classmate, Berkeley.]

Last night Maya was inconsolable and I couldn't figure out what was wrong. After about 10 minutes of hysterical crying she finally explained that she hadn't been able to go to the studio that day and thus, never got to see Pebbles. 

Oh boy. I see a guinea pig in our future. 

Last week Woody took the day off with Maya and they ran a few errands together. I told Maya to remind daddy that I needed more green tea. Woody got me the one I usually drink but Maya insisted on getting me this one:
I haven't tried it yet but it makes me smile every time I see it. Picturing the two of them together @ TJ's makes me smile wide as well.

Off to dinner...

Debbie's bday, Dia de los Muertos, Halloween, & SYTYCD

Happy Birthday lil Deb! 
You know how I just love wedding photos. Debbie got married two months after I said 'I do' and it was so much you can see. That's me and MBH back there. 
(Yes, MBH was rockin' the sweater vest.)

Yesterday was Day of the Dead (o, en espanol, dia de los muertos). 
If you watched Project Runway this season then you were probably blown away by the fabulous Mondo and this day of the dead outfit he whipped up.
I LOVE it!

My Halloween photos are actually from Spiderman's mom. 
We split up H'ween and Woody took Owen to Nigel's house and I stayed with Maya and Aunt Elee and AJ & Brook. I also left my camera @ Aunt Elee's so I don't have any photos of M to share...yet.

Spidey and Batman face-off.

Check out that pumpkin!
The boys hit the swanky PDX neighborhood and got full size candy bars while the parents were offered hot coffee, hot cocoa, and hot toddy's. 

I've been meaning to post this dance ever since I saw it. It blows my mind every time I watch it. I love this show and this was the best routine I've ever seen. The guy in red is a classically trained ballet dancer and this was his first hip hop routine. AMAZING!

And this one is from Jeanine who won last season, this was her solo in the finale. So, super good!

Maya had a substitute teacher at dance class this week who let the parents stay during class to watch. Maya squeaked w/ glee while bouncing and frolicking across the dance studio. The new teacher told me she could see her on So You Think You Can Dance one day! 
Oh yeah...I can totally see it too :)
