Our Little Ghouls

Say “ghouls” over and over. Awesome word. Sounds funnier the more you say it. I almost totally forgot to post these photos from Halloween. Tills was a black cat, Rollie was Freddie Kreuger – No, he hasn’t seen A Nightmare on Elm Street, but he saw a Freddy Kreuger fight some aging wrestler at Six […]

Yeah, I Wore Pink Tulle. So what?

“Mama?” Tiller said. “Yes, baby?” I muttered while cooking dinner. Tiller: “Mama, will you be a fairy with me?” Me: “huh?” Tiller: “Will you be a fairy with me?” Me: “I don’t think so, baby. I’m not pretty enough to be a fairy.” Todd: “You know, we just did a tooth fairy spot. I can […]

My Career as a Carny is Not to Be

I am so lazy this morning. Yesterday was a whirlwind of parenting errands. Okay, that is a lie. Having the Apple folks look at my Ipod, which crapped out after slapping the pavement on Thursday’s run (Oh, the sadness of running back home with no music!), at 9 am, after dropping Rollie off in the […]

All Hallows Eve

Halloween was ultra fun. We carved the pumpkin (yes, I am a total slacker and waited till the last minute) and then went and had pizza at Grant Central. After that, we walked around East Atlanta Village for the Eav-O-Ween celebration.All of the shop owners hand out candy to the local kids, and the people-watching […]
