Flashback Friday

Spencer's 1st Halloween
2007

He was 7 weeks old. 7 week old babies don't do much in terms of celebrating pagan holidays. He did look cute in his little jack-o-lantern jammies and pumpkin hat though.


It was Ginger's 1st Halloween with us too. She was just getting over a double ear infection (that was lovely for me to handle with a newborn) and was feeling a little pissy when I took this picture.
Spencer's 2nd Halloween
2008

A 1-year old has cause to celebrate on Halloween. Although Spencer didn't eat any candy that day there were lots of cool activities.

We took lots of pictures with the jack-o-lanterns that Daddy stayed up until all hours of the night carving.
Then we went to Frank School to visit the kids I used to work with. We saw Maryellen too.
Then we had lunch with Megan at Applebees. Can you tell that Spencer's pants had been removed at this point? It was too hot for pants by noon. Sheesh. Phoenix.
Amy gave us this costume while I was still pregnant. Spencer makes a convincing Scooby Doo.
Ginger was a pumpkin fairy.
We went to a little festival/carnival.
And went trick-or-treating at 1 house (our neighbors). That candy on the floor was the only candy Spencer got. His parents ate it. I have a feeling this year will be different.
I spent an ungodly amount of time this past week trying to figure out how to make my blog update on other people's blog lists. Here's the scoop. Bloggers all over the world have been having the same problem since last December. It has been widespread since March. Blogger has never officially made a statement about what the problem is or how to fix it. Computer programers who know about such things have said that it is the result of a weak code and blogger doesn't want to talk about it because they don't know how to correct it.

It is only slightly comforting that I'm not the only one affected. But, I feel lame that it looks like my blog is never updating when none of my friends are affected.

Until blogger gets their act together and figures this thing out, just check my blog often. Don't believe the feed. It lies.

I had never seen Spencer as Scooby. He really did make a great Scooby. I also loved Ginger as a pumpkin fairy.

Yep, it updated on mine too now, hooray! Hmmm...I can't believe Blogger doesn't know how to fix the code since it is part of Google and the Googlers know everything.
