Late Halloween post and Family Good Times

Here I was on Halloween. That was fun.

I actually scared a couple people who are afraid of clowns - both GUYS! One of the grocery bag-boys was dragged over by his co-workers just to force him to say "hi" to the clown.
Another teenage boy went running
down an aisle after he looked up and realized he was face to face with his worst nightmare! Good times.

More good times inside.

Made the official family move over the weekend.
Well, I guess it's not really official until we are married, and that's in the works! In the meantime, it's been a lot of great family fun around here - and it's about f'n time! :-)

I am sooooooo happy my daughter loves Mel and he thinks she's a great kid and they have fun and great conversations. He's pretty tolerant for never raising a girl before or being around young girls much. My daughter couldn't wait for him to get home from work so she could show him her new 'Winter Formal' dance outfit we just bought. He humored her and oohed and awed at her outfit that she held up before him as she discussed every detail and how she's going to wear it, bla bla bla. When she walked away, he looks at me and says, "What do I really say to that?" But he was grinning and thought it was all cute that she wanted to share her happy moment with him. She was just so happy that she found a great dress so fast and in time before the big dance. She is 12, and I am not so happy that she looks 16 in her dress and fancy shoes! She's tall, leggy and beautiful, but I am bias. :-)

She approached me in the laundry room later that evening and asked me something that took me by surprise. She asked if she is allowed yet to have a boyfriend at school. I pulled my head out of the dryer and turned around with a big grin and asked her if a boy has asked her out. She said, "No, not quite, but Fulton has been more cha
tty with me and protective with me when other kids try to pick on me and he always visits with me on the bus. The other day, at our bus stop, he got up and made all the other kids wait, while he let me off the bus first." (OMG!) this boy is serious

I could tell she really likes this boy, "So, do you really like this boy or are you just asking for permission in case he asks you to the dance?" She said she thinks she really likes him. She has not had a boyfriend yet, not really allowed since she's still pretty young anyway. She thinks she's ready to have a special guy at school.

I told her that so far he seems respectful of her and I think their friendship is mutual and she has my permission to start thinking about a boyfriend relationship....she SQUEALED and jumped up and down. Maaaaaaan, I hope this turns out alright! She's been getting straight A's and she's been enjoying just being a kid and now growing up too fast n furious - - - - ok, I am sure she'll handle this alright. I reassured her to come to me first and talk to me about ANYTHING she has questions about and she said, "deal."

I told Mel about her wanting a boyfriend now and asked hi
m when this all starts happening, does he already feel that he is going to be Mr.Protective of her and check out the boys and scare them straight.......and he said 'Yes' so fast and in such a way I could tell that he is already going to be protective over anything that happens around lil miss princess of the house. Ohhhh Maaaaan, only daughter/only kid syndrome.....maaaaaaan, daddy's going to spoooooiiiiiil her!

Since the big move-in was this past weekend.....there was a first official sleepover with the family all together. Daughter asked if she could sle
ep with us. I wasn't sure how Mel would feel about this, but I figured it's a good test to see how tolerant he is going to be with daughter adjusting to the change too. He didn't care one bit. I have a CalKing bed, plenty big enough, so I told daughterbutt to sleep on one side, I'll be in the middle and Mel climbed in the other side. We no sooner got settled in and here jumps a cat up to join us. As soon as Mel says, "Oh my gaaaaaaaawwwwwd, what-thuh?" And as Mel's still jokingly grumbling - here jumps up the dog....., "WHAT THUH?! The world's largest BUNG-HOLE is joining us too? We're sleeping with the KID, A CAT, FLEA-BAG-BUNG-HOLE-ASS-MUNCH, why not bring the F'N HORSE in bed too, I'm sure there's room!!!"

We were all laughing so hard. I could hardly breathe. He was joking and trying to sound all pissed off and you could just tell he was loving every minute of it. It was so cute, I wanted to get it all on video. Here Mel is bitching and moaning and the dog is climbing all over him trying to lick his face, the cat is wandering around all 3 of us trying to figure out where she's going to settle in for the night and me and my daughter are a hyste
rical, laughing, crying mess. It was so fun!

I awoke about 3a.m., still with all those bodies on the bed, minus one horse, and it was BLAZING HOT! Since I was trapped in the middle, I had no where to stick a leg out as a thermostat. I was overheating. I crawled out and slept the rest of the night in front of the big screen in the living room. :-) Yay me!

Here's my daughter on Halloween. She was a bloody puppet.
