I tried





Halloween was a little bit tricky this year. My helpmate (and photographer) was in, of all places, St. Louis-and he didn't even get to see Nelly!!!

So these are the most decent pictures I could muster. You can't even see his cute mini football, or that his authentic number 10 jersey says MANNING on the back. I tried really hard...by Friday night, after our ward trunk or treat, a library costume party and an attempted 30 minute photo shoot, I was more than a little bit Halloweened out. But I managed to pull it together and take him trick or treating and to one more trunk or treat party-mostly because they had a bounce house, which I foolishly presumed would mitigate the effects of the time change; it didn't work. He woke up at 4:30 am this morning.





Cheers to no more ASDA conferences over Halloween- a holiday where two parents are an absolute must.

My kids all loved the hotdog! They couldn't stop talking about it when we left.

I think you did AWESOME! Good job doing it all by yourself! He is Darling. You can never beat doing a football player.

Halloween with out a second hand, no thanks. Silly ASDA, why do you have to have one of those over achieving husbands? which specialty is he going to do first?

On top of it all, you even made chili for the ward party. You pretty much rock! I just wish I knew the sex of your baby...so that I could envision next year's costumes...hopefully not another lil' Devil baby. ;) I think you deserve an Angel baby.
