little witches

this picture above is SO my kids.
brennan being crazy boy.
and mild, mellow max.
brennan's toy broke before we even got home.
he then spent ten minutes trying to get max to give him the glow necklace she picked out.
we finally talked her into letting him have a turn with it.
until she took a nap.
and then he started to pull at the jelly stuff on it.
so at the risk of him breaking her necklace i wrestled it away from him.
he cried.
i probably blinked for a really long time and didn't smile.
that's what i usually do when someone doesn't want to do something i want to do.
and then i put it on the top shelf of the bookcase at the bottom of the stairs.
and promised him we would take his back and demand a refund.
at which point we would buy him a glow jelly necklace too.
now i need a nap.

i was there.
i promise:)
and i found my new favorite halloween book.
the illustrations are magic to the eyes.
go buy it.
i was excited when brennan asked me to read it again.
just so i could spend more time getting a better look at all of the pictures.
this says something b/c normally i'm good with the one time through.
i can't wait to read it again.
and again.
and again.
happy haunting:)

Fun day. Big brothers always want their little sister'things. My brother imposed a "Big Brother Tax." I hated it. That book looks awesome!

LOL! You'd think that he'd catch on when Mom's blinking and not smiling...
That witch with the broom up her crack scares me.
