When I was pregnant with Alison, before we knew if she was going to be a boy or a girl I made a promise to Chris that no matter what the sex of our baby he could dress her up as Yoda and carry her around dressed as Luke Skywalker for our baby's first Halloween. Of course I dressed up as Princess Leia.
Chris and I are good friends with our hair stylist Michelle. We stopped by so she could see Alison in her costume.
We had to stop by Target to get some formula
Alison was a good sport about the hat

Trick or Treat!
Best daddy ever!
We went trick or treating with some friends who have 2 kids. It was a really great time.
Ok...I might have gone a little over board with the pictures but playing outside on the rug was a lot of fun. We were listening to music the weather was *Perfect*, it really felt like we were in a little backyard paradise.

excuse the grass, our mower broke so....yea...its kinda tall. Chris has been using the weed wacker in the front yard. Poor daddy.
The weather here for the past few weeks has been so dreary! I am looking forward to getting our sunshine back! Alison and I have been spending a lot of time cooped up inside. Even my folks trip was dampened by melancholy weather.
Marty is sitting in the glider rocking chair in Alison's room watching Alison play on the floor. Marty doesn't want Alison to bother him but he seems to like watching her. And yes Marty is sitting like a person, I haven't had the heart to tell him he's not.
Alison wanted to sit in the chair with Marty! Unfortunately Marty ran off as soon as she decided she wanted up in the chair.

Nap time. I don't think I have blogged about Alison's new fish lights and music crib thing. It's pretty neat it plays almost 30 minutes of music and the fish 'swim'. The best part, there is a remote that you can hang on the door nob to push if you need to start the music over again. Of course Alison has to have Monkey to sleep with.
Alison did not want to go to sleep tonight! These pictures were taken at 9:30 when I decided that rocking and patting were just not going to do the trick. She was just not tired!
I brought her downstairs so we could watch Your Baby Can Read video and calm down enough to go to sleep. The video ended around 10pm and Alison was finally ready to go to bed. I guess sometimes you just aren't ready to go to sleep!

A few weeks ago the Costco by our house was carrying 6X9 recycled water bottle rugs for $22. We put off getting it and then we were finally ready to get one, Costco was out. I was really bummed because outdoor rugs are not cheap. I looked online trying to find a $20-30 rug and could not find one under $80....
Chris happened across giant Costco. A Costco bigger than our Costco. We went there for fun to see how different it is and they had the outdoor rug!! We snatched up the last brown one an loaded it into the car. Alison didn't seem to mind the intrustion.

Really excited to use it! The weather is going to have to shape up a little first!
My mom likes Coco's Bakery so for their last night we went there for dinner. Alison is really turning into a little kid wanting to look over the back of the seat and see what everyone is eating, and if it looks good try it. She did, for the first time, slurp up spaghetti noodles. It was pretty darn cute.
