Happy Halloween!

Teddy and Lucy are dressed.

James is handing out candy and exclaiming over everyone's costumes. I'm analyzing earnings reports for work and listening to Peter Frampton.

We're both satisfied with the distribution of labor.

Teddy and Lucy wish you a Happy Halloween!

Now...bring on Christmas!!

Bad Mommy

Last year, I bought Lucy a little Santa outfit. She barely tolerated it and just lay there.

The other day, we were in a pet store and saw the most. adorable. outfit. ever. Happily, Teddy is a much better sport!

Teddy, the red nosed reindeer.

Something about this hat just cracks me up. It looks like a reindeer muppet with a big black mouth!

I am a baaad mommy

I wish I could have video'd Lucy's response to seeing Teddy with his antlers. She was not amused. But I do have this!

The Perfect Chair

October already?!? I need to heed Ferris Bueller's advice about blinking and life.

The last few months have been spent dealing with the realities of growing older. It's a sad truth that our bodies just don't bounce back the way they used to. Now, we even have to put some thought into how we sit. Really? How we sit?!

The folks at the Relax the Back store love us. We've been in and out all month, checking out chairs and recliners, massagers and what not. And that's where we discovered the Perfect Chair.

It's big, it's leather and doesn't fit our decor but all is forgiven and forgotten the minute you sit in it. I think my lower back actually sighed with happiness.

The Perfect Chair

We're going to need to redo our living room - remove that hideous fireplace, buy a bigger TV, switch out that sectional to make room for another chair... because we're already bribing/arguing/cajoling each other about who gets it.
