Mike and I are trying to decide what to do on Saturday. We are either going to go on a scenic drive and look at the pretty leaves (with a toddler in the back seat who can handle the car for one hour, and ONE HOUR ONLY!) or, we are considering going to Amish country to eat jam and buy wooden things and be simple and calm. I hope I didn’t color your thoughts or anything, but what do you think? A vote? A vote!
In honor of this week’s presidential debate, this whole Quick Takes will be dedicated to the event! Psych! I don’t hate myself like that.
So, I was painting sugar skulls today (naturally), and I was surfing the web for paint ideas. I happened upon this one website with cool ideas so I started browsing the blog with my skull in front of me. Then, this crackly bass (As in the instrument, not the fish. That might have made it even scarier.) noise started coming from the skull. I have had them for over a year, and I am certain they do not make noise. I freaked the freak and was about to throw the forsaken things out the window (no joke) when I realized the music was coming from the blog and that I am an idiot.

I taught Ellen how to crunch leaves the other day. Today we found a big ol’ pile of them for her to jump it. She was pretty thrilled about the whole thing:
You know your kid is Catholic when…
Sporting the Matt Damon circa 1998:
I finished Ellen’s Halloween costume yesterday. It’s pretty dope. Check it out:
Get it? A ketchup packet. A Hines ketchup packet. Get it?
Now go see Jen and tell her congrats!
