Weekend Review

Welcome to the last week of September, my friends.  I admit to being kind of excited for the arrival of October and the upcoming holidays.  I'm finally going to have a little person to dress up in silly costumes on Halloween!  I'm sure my cats are thrilled that I will no longer be forcing them into ridiculous headpieces that they manage to escape from in minutes.

It was a beautiful autumn weekend here in La la Land.  Saturday I had a lovely morning visit from my dear friend Amelia, and we amused ourselves by taking photographs of the Muffin Man in ridiculous poses.



The Emmy awards took place last night, and, shockingly, we weren't invited to any fabulous parties.  We did, however, spend Sunday with the extended family celebrating birthdays.  I know it seems as though we are always at some family birthday party, but the Hubs has four brothers and sisters, so if you count them, plus all the spouses and kids...there's pretty much a birthday every single weekend.  Thank goodness I like my in-laws!

(Not) kickin' ass and taking names at Candy Land.
It has been brought to my attention that I used to cheat at Candy Land when I was younger.  Well, karma is a bitch, folks, because my nephews have some racket going where each player gets his or her own stack of cards, and I noticed that mine always seemed to be loaded with the Gingerbread Man and the Gumdrop Forest.  Needless to say, I came in last.  

I'm pretty sure a good time was had by all, though I think Noah was rather unhappy that he had to eat Happy Puffs instead of cake.
