Bye Bye Blondy!

We had a blast last night at the Fall Festival at the boys' preschool. Emma Claire and Wilson both wanted "dark hair", so dark hair they got! I used an aeresol can of black hairspray - it was pretty potent and messy and you should have seen our bathtub when we got home - I had to bleach it and use a half a bottle of soft scrub to get it all off (the bathtub that is - it came out of their hair with 2-3 shampoos!)!



It was quite funny the double takes we got when people realized who they were!
Despite the puffy eyes, Henderson had a great time with a cupcake!









Emma Claire and Wilson loaded up on goodies - a great start to this fun week of sugar and "cavity bugs" - thank goodness my brother-in-law is our dentist!!!!:~)







I took Henderson to the doctor this morning and he had no fever and she diagnosed him with a sinus infection and put him on an antibiotic. I took him on to school and an hour later I got a call from the school that he was running a 104 degree fever. I picked him up and sure enough his fever was 103 - he took a nap, still has a fever, but is eating and playing and seems pretty normal except for the fever and puffy eyes, so hopefully it's not the "oink-oink" flu!

'Tis the season!!!!

I LOVE going through the kids candy and getting my favorites! Isn't that horrible! Even worse...I tell them I have to "check" their candy before they eat it. Shhh...don't tell!

Jack wanted orange hair one time and it took FOREVER to wash out of his hair. I can't imagine the dark spray. I finally took some baking soda and mixed with the shampoo and that seemed to help - that and the fact that it was washing #5 or 6!

Your kids look cute with it that color!

Get well soon Henderson!
