This morning, Sookie thought it would be really fun to wake us up by attacking our sleeping eyelids. My eyes itched, my nose started to run and my throat started to hurt.
I refused to take a Benadryl. I had a little bit of energy and I knew taking one would have me asleep in 30 minutes. I toughed it out but I got even with her.
She had her first vet appointment today. Oh, she was not pleased with me. She had a thermometer up her butt, a few shots, a blood test and her nails trimmed. She's spent the remainder of the day ignoring me. You can almost see her rolling her eyes at me when I stopped to take her picture.
Do you see that look on her face? What do you think she's going to think when I take her to get spayed next month.
I'll just keep looking at this cute baby picture of her. This was taken 8/10 at Ashley's apartment...the first day she brought her home.
Susan at BBTB2 asked us to use the Haunted House from the Happy Hauntings cart. OH BOY! It was tough but it was worth it. The kids and I had so much fun putting it together. Kat now wants to take it to school for show and tell.
Mine is certainly not the coolest on the block. Please check out the other creations at BBTB2.
It was cut at 7 inches. At the end, I sprayed it with Glimmer Mist, which warped it a little bit. I guess you could say that my haunted house is the one that has been foreclosed on and is now lowering the value of the others on the block. ;)
The layout in the background will be posted in the next couple of days. I altered the photos in Picnik. Gosh, I love that site!!
We had a scare with Trent's. We didn't think it would get here on time because it was caught up in that train derailment in Phoenix. When I called UPS, they said it could take a week at least to get it all straightened out.
So, I called Buycostumes.com and they immediately overnighted a replacement costume. I think that is AWESOME customer service!! We ended up with two costumes because UPS delayed delivery only by a day. I couldn't believe it!! Two great customer service stories.
We've had Kat's costume for awhile. She has wanted to be this half devil-half angel for a long time. She can't wear the costume in the house because Sookie gets all crazy for the feathers on the bottom of the angel side. Katrina wanted to add the "Devil Stick" (she can't seem to remember the word "pitchfork"). I guess that means she's more devil than angel, which in my opinion is pretty accurate.
I've already heard several times in the last week how much she "loves her devil stick". I have also had to take it away from her many times as she loves to poke her brother with it.
I could do this all day.No, Zoe. You are getting too worn out. You need to take a break.Fine. I'll turn it on myself!! Ooops, I accidentally knocked it over.Five more minutes, Zoe. That's all. I'm so happy!!!!
