Big Hit..

Yesterday I was so I wanted to make up a recipe. Looking into the pantry I wasn't sure what to do. I saw canned Alaskan salmon..breadcrumbs..hmmmm.. DING! Got it. I would make salmon cakes..kinda like crab cakes. So I used to cans of salmon, an egg, breadcrumbs, chives, and parmesan cheese and fried them in a light coating of vegetable oil. Then I thought I need a dip too. So..I got out some sour cream, and some dill..and what else could I add..?? Lime juice to give it a kick. Along with some salt and pepper I made a killer dip for my fish cakes. Approval from the hubs..Lily, we'll lets just say her gag reflex works pretty damn good..(she hates fish unless its a tuna sandwich). I have a few left over i will eat for lunch. Jack loved them too. hurray for creative thinking. They were so tasty and perfect football food. By the way the Chargers smeared the Texans yesterday! Woohoo!

Fantastic Flank

Last night I tried out a new recipe called Flank Steak with Balsamic Bacon Glaze. Sounds ritzy I know. These days we are in love with Flank. We use it so many different ways. The only thing I didn't like was the smell of the balsamic vinegar. I was reducing it down to a thick glaze and the whole house stunk. But oh my good. Its this delicious grilled flank..than you use a pastry brush and lightly (and seriously don't use too much) brush the glaze over the the meat. Then you sprinkle crunchy bacon pieces over the top than garnish it with scallions. After I cooked the bacon I left some bacon drippings in the pan and a few crumbled pieces of bacon..then I poured in about a half cup of good aged balsamic vinegar to render up all the goodness at the bottom of the skillet..then I added half a cup of beef broth that was mixed with 2 tsps. of corn starch. Let that cook for awhile until thickened and reduced and presto..a glaze. Justin wants me to make this again. Very delicate flavors and great different textures..We gave this an enthusiastic thumbs up!

More salt dough fun...

Something Different

This year Justin and I wanted to do something different. We want the kids to have the whole trick-or-treating experience..however dread the aftermath. The bucket full of sugar laden 'treats'. Last year however I was so excited to see one conscious household handed out little toys instead. Jack got a little ball and Lily some jacks I think. You can find things like this at party city. What a awesome idea!
What we decided to do this year is let the kids go trick-or treating in the neighborhood. They love that. However, we will let them keep maybe 3 pieces of candy and the rest will be set outside the front door for the 'Candy Fairy' She comes in the middle of the night and takes all the candy and leaves a small prize in its place. Perhaps a book, a puzzle, something like that. Justin told Lily that the Candy Fairy works with Tooth Fairy..that way the kids don't eat all the sugar and keep their teeth happy and healthy. Lily was so excited about that idea. I read about that somewhere. I think some blog..Waldorf -related or something?? Can't remember. But I am glad we are doing this. They still get the experience of trick-or-treating AND get to have a piece or two of situation in my book.

Can't breathe, need air...fresh air!

OK, we are safe, we never had to be evacuated. The fires have somewhat settled and aren't any danger now. I feel so badly for all those who have been hurt and/or lost everything. So awful.
The air. It is downright nasty. You can still smell smoke. The quality of the air is so unhealthy. Its hazy and weird outside. Last night we made the big mistake of going out to Target to get a few necessities..(toiletries, paper towels, etc.) We didn't smell anything at that point. The children and I were going nuts staying indoors since Sunday afternoon. When we returned we thought..well its OK to open the doors just for about 15 minutes or so, to get some sort of air flow in here. Big mistake. Lily got a migraine last night..Jack was coughing so hard last night and this morning to the point where he is literally gaging and almost vomiting. Justin was up all night coughing..and I have coughed non-stop that my chest and my ribs are so tremendously sore. I have the air purifier going and the A/C on. We don't plan to go out again..not even briefly. Lily has had a friend over almost everyday to play with her and Jack. And as far as school, not sure if I am going to send her back Monday. There are warnings of the terrible air quality and even the weatherman said this morning that this will last for about 2 weeks. Ick..
Apparently Arizona has been getting some smoke affects as the gigantic smoke/particle cloud is drifting in that direction. I am going to have Justin pick up some Elderberry to give to the kids to help w/ respiratory issues. I just gave Jack some Cherry Bark to ease throat/respiratory problems as well. You never realize how much you take stuff for granted, just like the nice clean air we normally have..going outside on a sunny day for a walk around the neighborhood, going to the market to gather some produce. I would want nothing more right now than to have all of us go outside in the sunshine and breathe in deep, fresh, clean air..

Fire Storm..

There is fire..everywhere. We are located pretty much right in the middle. There is fire to the north and south of us. Lily has been out of school for two days and they will probably close it for the rest of the week. They have evacuated Spring Valley which is the city next to us. The air quality is horrendous. The winds are wicked, blowing debris and all kinds of stuff in the air. There is 2% humidity. The lights are flickering and the TV went out last night. We are sealed inside the house with the air cleaner and humidifier on..and at times the A/C..but we are trying to conserve. Scary times..its not as bad as the Cedar Fires of 2003, when we could see the fire from our bedroom window. We were next to evacuate. The shopping center across from Lily's school was evacuated and that is right down the street. There is no mention of evac for us at this time, thank goodness. I feel for all those who are hurt and/or lost there homes in this terrible fire. My thoughts are with all those affected by this, and I pray we aren't next.

The 'oh so needed, I can't live without it, I want that or I will freak out all day' Bee

Things are finally looking up, The skies are clear, the snot has stopped and the coughing has ceased..for now anyway. Yesterday was just awful. Jack was literally out of breath all day. he could barely get any words out as he was so wheezy. He used the inhaler a few times with the albuteral. Well he inhaled on the long tube thing that connects to the inhaler. Poor guy. Justin has asthma and Lily was prescribed an inhaler at one appointment awhile back too. When either of the kids get ill, they both have to use the inhaler. Its so scary. I hope they don't develop asthma later on. Jack is doing much better today. no inhaler and he has his appetite back.

So my morning was going fine..(besides the usual argument with Lily regarding clothes..shocking isn't it?!). While doing some dishes this morning, Lily was sitting peacefully at the dining table writing another story(she is constantly bustin out stories left and right, she loves to write), and Jack was mulling about, playing cars and generally causing a ruckus like he normally does in the morning. Then I heard a scream. I stopped the dishes and ran to see what the matter was. Jack was hysterically crying. I tried comforting him and asked what was wrong. He let out with great intensity.." I want to go to Blockbuster!" Uh..what? Then he continued "I want to go..I need that Bee, I need it Mommy! (insert about 6 minutes of insane crying and sobbing here) I had to take a moment to wonder the the hell he's talking about. hmmm.(insert dumb-founded looking mommy who has not had any coffee yet standing and wondering what to do next, here) Oh ya..!! Finally OK..I remember. The other day, Tuesday to be exact..I went to Blockbuster to rent Transformers and while waiting in line I noticed a stuffed 'Bee' from the upcoming Bee Movie with Jerry Seinfeld perched on top of the Coke refrigerator thing they have there. I showed Jack and he was like 'oh..cute'. Didn't say a word about it.

So yeah..that's what he was talking about. Needless to say I went to get it for him. But..we had to wait because it was 8:20 am when those events took place and he didn't understand that they didn't open until 10am. Normally I wouldn't do such a thing, normally I would just say..something like "Uh maybe another time, lets go play" but he was going nuts and if starts crying again then the asthma would come again. So...thank goodness for Blues Clues..we watched that and played for awhile. I was hoping he would forget. But to no avail, that little stinker kept saying 'cmon lets go get the Bee'. Oh well.

Tonights dinner is fajitas..yumm..I will post some pictures of Jack sleeping with his Bee. When we got home and I removed Bee from the ridiculous package..(those things are like Fort Knox to get out..espcially Barbies..and oh Polly Pockets..and Bratz..I could go on and on), Jack promptly named his new prized possession.."Boy Bee'. Aww..

I have been thinking about this whole job issue alot lately. We are totally fine financially without me working. The only reason I wanted to work was to have the extra for furniture I want and other material things. What is wrong with me? Sure it would be nice to have a new coffee table, and hey a new dining set would so rock..but really, how materialistic can I be? Not to mention..whatever job I did, I would work from 5 to probably about 10 I would guess and Justin would have to come pick me up because I am not walking home that late, then he would have to wake the children. Jack won't go to sleep without me...I have a tuck-in routine with Lily..and other cook...not Justin...he says sure he would make dinner, but c'mon..its not like he would cut up vegetable to steam or anything like that. Dinner is my thing. I would miss it. Maybe I could make the dinner early and then they would have it to eat together, but then I would miss out on that too, and that stinks. I am not sure what I should do. The extra $ would be so nice..the money I make would be just fun money. Is it really worth it?? I do need to work no matter what since we plan on getting my car next year..but the question is when should I start? And what if no one will hire me? I have a letter of recommendation from the previous employer..(Hallmark) Too many questions..too many thoughts racing through my head.. feelings of total guilt for wanting more when I have everything I could ever want. God, i need some coffee. I am going to Blockbuster to get Transformers at 10 and I could apply then, however I don't Jack would be too happy.

Day Home

I kept Lily home today. This dumb cold has everyone feeling crappy. Of course its always worse at night. Shes feeling fine, but has a pretty wicked cough, so I thought it a good idea to keep her home.
It is only 7 o'clock and she has already made a 'staying home from school to do list' ..some of the items are..'get cozy', 'play Bratz', 'play cooking Mama' (its Nintendo DS game) and 'play with Jack'.
Jack feels pretty crummy too. He keeps itching his eyes and sneezing. Poor boo.
Well I have decided to look for a part time job in the evenings. I really just need to get out and the extra $ would be great, there are so many things I want. Sounds terrible I know..but I want a new coffee table, a new dining table, Lily needs a new get the picture. Its all house stuff..until January or so when we get my new car..then most of the $ will be for a car payment. I haven't worked since July 2004, I was going to go back to work after I had Jack, but the store I worked at (a Hallmark store) closed, so I just stayed home and raised my kids. Prior to that I worked at a animal hospital for 3-4 years and before that Target for about 5 years. I am not sure where I will apply. I was thinking Blockbuster..its about 1 minute walking distance from my home, and they are open late which is good for me. Or maybe Walgreens..hate to do retail.again...but at this point I will do it.
The Charger game was great. Its always a good feeling beating the raiders... :) hee hee.

Gigantic Stuffed Burgers,Sucky Chicken Bake and Totally Hip Toddler

Other than being sick as a dog, nothing exciting has been happening here. A few days ago I made a new recipe called something like Chicken and Vegetable was in my(oops, I mean Jack's) Rachael Ray magazine (which btw, I had to buy because while we were standing in the check out line at the market, Jack saw Everyday w/ Rachael Ray and went bonkers). This recipe looked yummy..and I only had to buy a few veggies for this, as all the other ingredients I had on hand.. Cream of mushroom was the base for this dish and it was beyond nasty. It was dry, mushy and basically tasteless. The kids took a few bites and were practically begging for chicken Dino's. Damn.. Oh well..

Then..last night for supper I wanted to grill and I thought it would be cool to make stuffed burgers. I made a few for the kids and I (just making a small patty then topping that with tons of cheese, then making another small patty to top that). But Justin's, I made a huge one. I stuffed that thing up with blue cheese..but I tripled his..meat, pile of blue cheese, meat another pile of blue cheese, and another meat patty. Of course we put even more cheese to melt over the top. So healthy, I know. Justin's took forever to grill since it was so thick. It turned out fabulous according to him. I don't dare try as blue cheese in my opinion smells and resembles barf..and ewww gross. I hate it..oh and provolone cheese too...that is so stinky, I call it the armpit cheese. However it is good melted on the phillycheese steak sammy's I make.

Anyway..that was a good dinner.

And a quick funny..

Jack and Lily were messing around last night and Lily did something Jack thought to be amusing and he says" Sis, that was tight!" haha What!!!

And Lily is always saying things like.."Dude, that's sick" or is it spelled sik? or sic? Too cute!

Tonight, hubby is bringing home food, I really don't wanna cook tonight. I rented a few movies to of them is Surfs Up, we'll watch that with the kids. Justin and I finally had a chance to sit down and watch Knocked Up..that was such a freaking awesome realistic..its kinda scary! Some situations Justin and I looked at each other and started cracking up because we would so say or do the same thing. 4 thumbs way up!!!

I leave you with the pictures..

the good


the bad

meals that is.


Wednesday, October 10, 2007


I feel miserable..AF came with a vengeance on Monday..then I woke up in the middle of the night Monday night,early Tuesday with a wicked sore throat. I swear I could have spit was on fire. Today my body aches and my neck is tender. I did a whole lot of lying around for the past 2 days. I feel bad for the kids, because I really don't have the energy to play. Jack was I was laying on the the sofa he told me "I am gonna fix you Mama" so off he went to collect his tools and his hat. He has a spongebob hat that is his 'doctor hat' . He uses his pliers to pull my toes, and a wooden screwdriver chiseled away at my stomach. Then, he has this wooden hammer.mallet thingy and starts pounding away at my thigh. OMG, that hurt. Mind you I was in and out of consciousness at that point. (not really, but it seemed like it).
Funny the difference between Justin and myself when we are ill. I, drug my sorry ass to the market and bought some fruit and tons of Green naked that stuff. Justin he goes to the liquor store and buys this Russian Imperial Stout type beer. Hmm. Not only does he drink this stuff..he put a shot or two of Vodka in the glass before he poured it in . Gross!
For dinner I made some chicken quesadillas with artichoke hearts and roasted red peppers. It was yummy.
Hopefully tomorrow I can function like normal. I hate being sick..Even worse when hubby and I are sick at the same time. Blah..

My Seven..Tagged

Alrighty..I have been tagged by the delicious B, author of "Random Acts of Motherhood", a blog that is just absolutely fabulous and I read everyday. So here it goes..!!

1. I am a hypochondriac..if there is a new 'epidemic' going round..I am sure it will land in my home and nestle its way in my body. Fun times, huh?

2. I don't drive..nor do I have a car. Sad I know. I mean I am 30 and don't drive. But hey, I look at it this way..I am doing good for the earth and not contributing to pollution and all. Alas, we are getting a car for me..with Justin's holiday bonus. Yay me!

3. I secretly wish I was living with the Amish community. Nuff said. Or living at The Farm..a hippie commune in Tennessee.

4. I want to become an herbalist..or a doula..either one would be great.

5. Coffee is my blood type. Seriously.I can't get enough of it. :)

6. When kids are grown and moved out..Justin and I plan to become seasoned travelers. Look out Rick Steves!

7. I regret having a tubal ligation after the birth of my second child.
*(I say that now, but change my mind when I am having a rough day with the boy one,(just the other day he was yelling at Lily and said "Lily you are such a f**k!",)and then there's fighting with the girl one about why she can't wear make-up on picture day because, hello, your 8!)

OK folks, there you have seven.. thanks for the tag..that was fun dishing up some stuff.

Open House..Fire Trucks Galore

Today we took the kiddos to the annual Open House at the local Fire House. We went there last year too. There was some robot named KC there..and last year Lily was freaked out by it..this time 'round she and him chatted it up. Jack sat in a fire truck and was in total bliss. Then there was this weird polar bear mascot named Shiver..not sure what he was all about..but needless to say Justin snapped a picture of me and the kids with him. He was like 7 feet tall. Mother Goose was there too, but there was a humongous line and we didn't want to stand there for 45 minutes. Besides Jack probably would have not liked her know because his obsession with feathers..he hates them. He will list the things he does not like for you..and it goes like this: feathers, fuzz, spiderwebs, string, and hair. That's it for now..but I'm sure the list will get longer. He is a very picky boy, my Jack.

Autumn Chill

Today is absolutely glorious...brisk, super windy..the smell of smoke wafting through the air from fireplaces..leaves starting to change..delicious day. I love days like today.
1.Lily and I didn't argue this morning..woohoo!
2.Went to the market and bought lots goodies.
3.Helped a injured praying mantis off the sidewalk where he would eventually get smashed by someone and Jack and I re-located him in some foliage.
4.Wheels in my head are turning..thinking of all kinds of comfort food to make.
Already thinking of something interesting to cook for Thanksgiving..that is my favorite holiday by far..I get to do my thang in the kitchen and Justin gets to clean up the tornado of a mess I make..Love it!
Tonight we are going to Spirit..a Halloween store. Justin is sick of the current decor and wants to update. They will hopefully have some fall/autumn decor which I would like.
Update on my eczema..still there yo! Not going away. Like I thought it would. I am still so sceptical of his diagnosis..I have a re-check appointment on the 16th and when I go and if its still there (the eczema, which I know it will be) I will be demanding a referral to an allergist. I was talking to Justin last night and we may just save some cash and head to a holistic practitioner.
Oh one more thing before I go... The other night Jack was finishing up going pee..Justin and I were in the kitchen..and we heard Jack coming out of the bathroom shouting the following " Oh my goodness..I have a big penis!" we turn around and look at our little man with his pants around his ankle and his undies pulled up but his wee wee hanging over the top. I so wish I had my camcorder at that very moment..that's the kinda stuff you show his girlfriend when she comes to the know so we can embarrass him and all. We didn't get Jack circumcised either.. so he is always yanking his thing!

Ditched and left high and dry..

Today Jack and I were working on the alphabet..writing the letters, etc. I make up little catchy phrases that he repeats as he is writing them, for example..letter A is " Up, Down, Across", and B is "Line, Bump Bump" Ok yeah I am dorky like that, but hey whatever works right?
As were were in the middle of B he turned his head in the direction of Rachael Rays TV show..I think its called Everyday w/ Rachael Ray or something..any way he does not like that show.(as its not all cooking).but it came to the part of the show where she cooks something and he jumps up straight ,yells "she's cooking now, she's cooking now" and ditched me and our schooling to go spend some quality time w/ his girl. Totally my fault for having the TV on during our 'learning time' but have to think like a 3 year old..and weigh your options..alphabet with mama or oh la la Rachael Ray and all her spices (yes, Jack notices her rack..spice rack that is..c'mon get your mind outta the gutter sheesh! lol)
Lily and I argues again this morning..shocking I know. I hate days when this happens. She wants to pick out her own clothes..thats all fine and dandy..however..she picks out her old, wrinkly after school play clothes when she has brand new items hanging in her closet. And when I ask her about this she replies she doesn't like any of it! What! Shes the one who picked it all out when we went shopping! What gives?! Oh and her thats another story. I like to fix her hair and put cutesy ribbons and/or bows in it..but she likes it down..whatever, its your least just brush it. Besides on the rare occasion she does let me fix is only allowed to be in a pony tail..not high..very low. But whats the point because when she comes home from school its she takes it down when she gets to class. Anyway..she does brush her hair, however, she stops mid way due to a tangle and then goes back to the top leaving a huge tangled up mess in the middle of her hair and it poofs out so much. God forbid I do it because she will cry and then say I am doing it on purpose. Sigh..I know I should pick my battles..really I do, but can't there be some sort of compromise? Picking the outfit out the night before..done that..pointless because she changes her mind in the morning. I am at a loss. I am just going to not care anymore and make sure she has her teeth brushed and her homework. A teacher at school told my friend that the parents should not bring them their homework if they forget it..or to keep reminding them to study for a test..that they are old enough to do so and if they don't then they will have to face the consequence and receive a bad grade or whatever. hmm..not sure I totally agree with that, but I am getting to that point.
Growing up, my mother picked out my clothes and fixed my hair every morning..I never thought to question her.
I am turning into my mother which I swore i would be the total opposite and strive to not be the way she was. Justin says I have been all over Lily and riding her too hard. But c'mon, he doesn't make sure she does her homework..or study..not to mention he could give a shit if she had any chores or responsibilities..I do. I think she should. Shes 8 and old enough to make her around the house, etc. Justin says just to lay off. Whatever.
I am just venting and AF is just about to come knocking on my door. Blah...

Diagnosis: Me...

I finally went to the dermatologist yesterday afternoon. Yep. Eczema. Ok. What gives? I told him how the original GP Dr. I saw said it was from stress..and the derm Dr chuckled..and he said if that were the case we'd all have eczema. What happened was there was a insect bite..ok..then I scratched it..and scratched and that started the eczema! From my scratching!?! WHOA! You mean to tell me I did this to myself?
I have had bug bites in the past and they were itchy and it never resulted in eczema. I told him how Jack was diagnosed with 'environmental sensitivities' (basically I don't think the pediatrician had any idea what was wrong so he gave Jack that label). I asked him if I could have sensitivities too and he said not from outside because everyone is outside in nature..HOWEVER..your inside home, that's a different story. Yikes.
He did a culture swab on one of the open sores I had on my leg and gave me a steroid shot in the butt (I sound manly this morning..haha, j/k) and he gave me some crazy antibiotic like penicillin but it starts with a D just in case the culture comes back and I could have an infection. Just to be on the safe side. Oh yeah and I bought some Eucerin cream.
Yeah. So, all this drama stems from my itching. Nice. And all this itching stems from a freaking flea. Nice. And they were moved in way before I had the cats. They are chillin in the back yard after they hop off the couriers...the possum, the coon, the skunks..etc. Nice.

True Love...

All toddlers have things that they obsess over..some like baseball or Dora or perhaps they only eat goldfish crackers and slice cheese(Jack was on that kick for awhile..that and Kefir)..but this..this obsession of Jacks has me totally tickled pink!
During the day Jack is only sitting still for brief when hes eating or going poo..other than that..its like a whirlwind of action and activity. In the evening there is one and one thing only that I have come to depend on to get some things done. Good ol' Rachael Ray. Yep. He. Loves. Rachael. Ray. He will park his tiny tooshie on the couch and stare mesmerized at the boob tube for one whole hour. When the commercials come on he yells out desperately "Rach! Rach!!"
Its so cute! Her 30 minute meals comes on at 6pm and is off at 7pm. This evening after her show ended,,he growled and stomped off. Pushing some of his 200 plus hot wheels around on the coffee table he hears that Emeril is coming on..Oh baby..throws the cars with no care in the world and parks himself again to watch Emeril. He asked me if he is going to say "Bam" again. I assured him he probably would. This particular episode was about meat. Different types of sausage, heirloom chickens, lamb chops..beef from Australia..etc. While Emeril was grilling up the chickens he then slathered them with BBQ sauce and I hear Jack say.."Now thats what I am talking about!" lol Funniest damn thing I heard in a long time!
I received a catalog in the mail today called One Step Ahead(even thought I told them I need Leaps and Bounds because Jack is too old for One Step Ahead) anyway on the cover was a child cooking with this totally rad, red, retro kitchen. Jack was begging for it! HAHA I looked to see how much..It was only $249.99 Sheesh..I saw a cute one..wooden too, at Target for $99. Santa is so bring that for him. I wonder if he will be a chef or something..?? That would be so cool We can cook together! Nice...

Birthday Bash~ Lily's 8!

Friday was Lily's 8th birthday. We had a little party for her in the evening..with just a few gal pals from school and the boy next door. Grand time was had by all. The theme was no other than the beloved Hannah Montana .. I am so sick of her now! haha. She got lots of goodies..Hannah shirt, singing Hannah barbie doll, a Hannah microphone that does karaoke..oh tons..of music Cd's. Billy Ray Cyrus, Gwen Steffani, Ashley Tisdale just to name a few. A double edition of Goosebumps hardcover even..she loves those books! And of course Target gift cards from relatives..(which she ended up using the next day and bought My Sims for the Nintendo DS and a Barbie and Jack a pack of hotwheels).
Next year party..maybe we'll just take her somewhere. It was utter hyper excited running amuck and all these girls singing at the top of their lungs 'The best of both worlds' Hannah ofcourse.
Well B, I so know the feeling about pets..I just had Zelda of my tenants sons, girlfriends brother took her. I just feel so relieved. I thought I was a pet person too..hell I worked at the vet for about 4 years...but I am not liking having to clean up after another someone..its hard enough to keep my house tidy and get dinner on the table, let alone, clean the cat box, change water, put out food, sweep up an liter that she kicks from the box while she's doing her thing. Doesn't sound like much..but when you have a tween, and a rambunctious 3 year old, not to mention tenants in and becomes too much.
I am going to the dermatologist tomorrow..about freaking time. I will post about the results when I get back. Lily has karate tomorrow..maybe I'll take pictures of her in action, in her horse stance or something. Dinner tonight is tiny bean and cheese burritos with the fixin's..I am feeling totally lazy and have no desire to cook.
Jack is turning into a little hermit. He hates going anywhere..and he always asks if there will be alot of people there..if the answer is yes he promptly replies, 'I do not want to go there.' he hates being around alot of people and has stated multiple times.."I don't like people" and ofcourse Charger Sunday is his nemesis...we hosted yesterday..and let me just say Jack was not happy. He hates it when anyone yells,hollers or cheers..heck if you even talk louder than normally he will cry and cry. He does not like any loud noise. He is super sensitive. Terrible game by the way yesterday.. :(
I went to my storage room and got out the tubs of Halloween decorations..we may do that today.. Jack was already crying about that too..he loathes Halloween decorations..*sigh* I will post some pictures of Lily and her buddies...and cake..Who doesn't love cake?
