Daycare went well, they said he was happy and having fun. Made me feel better for dropping him off, however; today he wasn't so smiley to me as usual. I'm pretty sure he's got it figured out that something is different. I'm tired and it's been a long day, i'm off to sleep.

We spent the day with Seth's parents and it was all in all a nice day, would have been a much better day had him and his dad not spent 6 hours working on that stupid truck. It's fixed! or was fixed, started it up and it ran for the first time in a long time and then, then the starter went out. what the hell. I'm pretty sure that truck is cursed. But on a seriously awesome note i'm greatful for family and friends who love us enough to spoil us! Thanks to my mom's friend Karen and to my Uncle (her hubby) for buying her a brand new car, i'm getting her old car to drive around tomorrow! Come tuesday morning i'm blowin this popsicle stand. =) I just like knowing that if I want to leave, it's possible. Friday was a bummer in that sense, I had planned to walk to the lake with the baby and feed the ducks and just hang out for a bit. I got ready, got him ready, got the bag ready and went to get the stroller...no stroller. It was still in the trunk and with carrier too.
I need to find some good sites to visit during the times when i'm online. I have my certain places I check out and read daily, tomorrow is my postsecret day, I usually check it in the morning to see what new odd secrets people have sent in and usually ending up visiting it again when Seth wakes up to share the really odd/disturbing/funny ones with him. I just wish there was a way I could go back and read the past secrets...but I suppose then there would be no need to publish the books. So if you're reading this and have an interesting web site you'd like to share please do! My sister doesn't update enough to keep me occupied and there's only so much perez, tmz and craigslist "best of" I can read.
Have a wonderful holiday weekend, I plan to!

On that lovely note, good night.

We had a busy fun weekend, we celebrated Seths' dads birthday on Saturday. with his brother, niece, and new girlfriend. We had a great time and Lucas got to experience all their animals at an older age where he actually noticed them and seemed kind of confused by what they were. They have a full house of four dogs and a bunch of birds one of which is probably only a little smaller then Lucas.
So in preperation for a week at home during the days with no car, we spent the afternoon in downtown Seattle. We visited the Pike Place Market and the only picture I was able to get was of Seth and Luke by the car and my camera battery died. Oh well, we had a good time and you'll have to just take my word for it. =)
We watched The Number 23 when we got home and man, just the way they filmed it was hard to watch. Jim Carrey was creepy and the whole thing was just kind of unsettling. I had to stay up just watch something happy to ward off the freaky dreams. It's all in all a good movie, just creepy as hell.
The picture below is of the anniversary present I made for Allison and Aaron. I'm seriously proud of this and want to make one for us of engagement pictures for the guestbook at the wedding. I went to here to my publisher and uploaded their wedding pictures and made a coffee table book out of it. I was very surprised by how it all came out. Thing can easily look pretty cool online but you just never really know the quality you'll end up with. The colors are crisp, there's a ton of different designs, themes, and patterns you can put the pictures into. I googled wedding and love quotes and added them in with the pictures and it's something that will last a lifetime. I'm excited to get ours done and think I might have started a trend with friends all making their own books now. It really was worth it and easy to make. We had a fun Halloween, shockingly. We were not looking forward to it at all. I hate getting up every five minutes to answer the door and see four 15 year olds in nike sweatshirts holding pillowcases and asking for candy. It's not fun for us and i'm slightly surprised we haven't ever been egged. Our friends Eric and Crystalyn and their brood were going to a trunk or treat down the street and we talked Allison and Aaron into going and checking it out. It was such a fun time. Three of the neighborhood churches put it on and pulled about 30 cars into the playground of a nearby school. They decorated the cars and dressed up and I'm glad went. We weren't going to dress Lucas up to just stay home, but I was out for a job interview earlier in the day and stopped by the mall and randomly seen this seriously cute skunk outfit. I wanted to surprise my mom (who was appalled we weren't going to dress him up for halloween) and it all worked out. Here's the gang minus me, Sethy the pumpkin, Luke the skunk and Dash a.k.a Nolan.
