Halloween in Tucson

This year, we went to Tucson to spend Halloween with our cousins. We had a blast!!! Max loved trick or treating... he figured out that walking to a door meant more candy and he was lovin it. He had his first sucker and at lots (too much) candy! Afterwards, Justin and Sheilia made a delicious dinner and then we watched a scary movie! Thanks Justin and Sheilia. We had so much fun and can't wait to see you guys again!

Max’s costume… so far so good.

  I’m working on the crown and whiskers… I don’t think I’m going to bother with the hand claws. I don’t think he would like those too much :)

Love him.

Things have been so crazy/busy/hectic/stressful.

Just a little background… Mike and I have both been doubling up our classes for the last couple of months. I’ve been working 2 hrs each night and Mike has been working his normal 8 hour days. All of this along with making sure Max is happy and well taken care of has been really exhausting.

We’ve forgotten about dinner about 3 times in the past couple of weeks and even went to bed without it once. Our clean laundry has been sitting in a huge pile in our room for I don’t know how long.

I think sometimes I forget why we are doing all of this and I get frustrated and I feel like I just want to give up. Mike can always tell when I’m feeling this way and he will always almost immediately begin telling me how nice the apartment looks when he gets home (even when it’s a total mess),  and how beautiful I look (even when I hadn’t even had time to shower that day), and how delicious our top ramen dinner was.

Then I remember that I’m married to the most wonderful man in the world.

I had an interview on Thursday for a job as a transcriptionist. A few hours later, I got a phone call with an offer for the position. After a really long and busy day, I came home to these:


It just made it all worth it. How did he know that these would mean the world to me that day? I’m not even a big flower person, but somehow these almost brought me to tears.

Sleepy Head

IMG_5167 Max was so tired the other day that he didn’t even wake up when I changed his diaper. I just thought it was kind of funny!


Max loved this!                            IMG_5164



As you can see, Max loves his Tiasoin too :)

"Let the wild rumpus start!"

Max is going to be Max for Halloween! Well, hopefully. The only place I found this costume was on ebay and it was way over priced as costumes usually are. The only other way for this to happen is if I make it myself!

I was fine with the idea before I started doubling up my classes, but on top of school, work, being a mommy, and everything else, I went back and forth with whether or not I wanted to commit myself to something more. BUT Soin assured me that she would help make it and that we would get it done! So we bought the materials and started working on it.

Last year we made his costume and it didn't turn out too bad....

This one is a little more complicated but hopefully we can pull it off!

The stache


So what do you think? Keep it? Get rid of it? He says he’s gonna keep it until Halloween. Any costume suggestions? :)

We were thinking Tom Sellek
