My Smallest Baby Pumpkin

Cruz is the bestest best baby in the whole wide world of babies! He also loves rolling pumpkins all around the house.

In other news, I had my skin cancer surgery on Friday. Everything went as planned... although it was a pretty sucky plan. So yeah, no news on the biopsy until Tuesday or Wednesday. Everything looks hopeful that this can be the end of this skin cancer episode but I am really looking forward to hearing the final word about it. This is just not my style to be recovering from surgery and homebound.

Anyways. check out my Mom's new blog, she has super cute pics from our kid Halloween party last Thursday.

Mismatch Day

Today was Mismatch day at Blue's school. I guess some of the other kids didn't get the memo. Notice how half his hair is spikey and half is smooth - Blue's genius idea. Although he was one of the few kids dressed up, he was rockin' it.

Melanoma, Whatanoma

Here is my story:
Somehow I ended up with melanoma. This bites for many reasons. One, it's cancer. Hello, cancer. Two, I really think the sun meant no harm, although it may be killing me. Lastly, it is cancer and is really putting a damper on things. This is all crazy because it started off as a little innocent mole on my back and recently turned into the "black tumor" - that is a medical term actually, I think. So anyways, they think they got it all but I am scheduled to have a surgery to remove more skin on my back and the lymph node that it would go to, if it did. We are really hoping that it didn't and most signs point to just that. I would appreciate all the good karma that can be sent my way. I will be having surgery next Friday and if anyone is in the market for an extra piece of back skin and a lymph node, let me know.....maybe it could help pay for the surgery.
P.S. Pictures of Slade's birthday party coming soon!

Somebody in our house who is one and a half has a little addiction problem. I mean, I am not naming names but his name starts with Cru and ends with z. He's got a hankering for the "ba ba" that he just can't quit. Do I need to call an intervention?

Alien Invasion

A funny thing happened while I closed my eyes for a few minutes on the couch. Cruz was napping, Blue was at school, and Slade was watching a little show. I woke up to find Slade with these "ancient alien curse marks" on his arm. He told me all about how aliens had entered the house and marked his arm with these curse marks. I told him alright Slade, but don't draw on your arms anymore and never use my Sharpies again. He assured me that he didn't do it and that aliens were to blame. I then had to tell him that the next time aliens enter the house while I am sleeping, show them where the washable markers are.

Diaper Emergency

Yesterday I went to Costco with one thing in mind, diapers. We were down to a couple of diapers left. I went shopping, bought bread, milk, cheese, even pretty Christmas ribbon. I came back home only to realize that I forgot the one thing i truly needed. When Jason called me to tell me that he was on his way home from work, I meant to tell him to get some diapers. I forgot again. So, last night, Jason got home and I headed off to the mall to get a haircut. Jason called me in a panic, "We have no diapers in this house!" I said I would go to Target and make sure that I get some.... all the while Dad was left to use his boy scout training. Here is Cruz with a flannel recieving blanket turned into a diaper. Nevermind that he went through about four of these blankets before I got home.
