Mike's Big Costume is T.G.I.Fantastic with a side of Triple D!!!

I did it again! Was going to be one thing... but at the last minute switched to another!

I was going to be Iron Chef Mario Batali, but I couldn't find a pair of size 14 orange Crocs, so I switched gears and with a $10 bottle of light blonde hair colorizer and a $1 black sweatband, I became:

The hair is permanent, so I hope my students don't laugh at me too much come Monday.

Here is a close-up with my little princess:

Halloween 2009: Kids Edition

Here's what the kids were this Halloween:

Aaron was "Bookface" (... only fans of The Office will get it)

Aimee was a "Black Cat" (Which was a $5 costume, if you don't count the black long-sleeve shirt and the black jeans that we bought to go with it.)

Alex was a "Soccer Player" (We really didn't have a costume for him and he had a game earlier that day.)

Andee was a "Princess" (Thanks to the Andersons for letting her borrow a dress-up.)

... and Austin was a "Bunny Rabbit" (Thanks again the to the Andersons.)

Min got a haircut...

Min's been wanting a haircut for sooooo long. She she went and got one yesterday. Her friends told her to go to Albert and he would do a great job.

It ended up being a free haircut since Albert cut off 10" worth of hair to donate to Locks of Love. Even after that and much thinning, Min still had alot of hair left to style.

Looks good doesn't it.

Austin is 227 Days Old!!!!

Lately Austin has been doing this toothless grin when we say his name. Finally decided to capture it and share it!

Alex Loves Soccer!

Alex is playing soccer for the first time this season. He's a little bundle of energy on the field. He's trying to get the gist of the game, but right now it's a way to get his abundant energy out!

"Take a picture of me Dad!"

The Puzzling World of Winston Breen

Aimee is reading "The Puzzling World of Winston Breen" by Eric Berlin for her GT (Gifted & Talented) program.

The book is full of puzzles to complete as you read.

Aimee was having trouble with a puzzle and didn't want to mark up the book, so we scanned the page and printed a few out. Min, Aaron, Aimee, and I worked the puzzle out individually and came up with same answer... WE WANTED TO DO MORE!

So Aimee and I were preparing to scan the rest of the puzzles when Min had a brilliant idea: "See if there is a website with them."


The Puzzling World of Winston Breen

So we downloaded them, printed them out and will work them out throughout the day!
