33 weeks

Check me out today. I don't know what those faces are. My belly feels like I ate the biggest meal in the world and there's no more room. Really stretched, especially when he does his somersaults.

Halloween Costumes

Dad, these are for you.

Here are this year's pics! I was Frida Kahlo. All of the art students from my school studied her.

Back in '03 Matt and I went to a party as Dick Chaney, the Tin Man with no heart, and George Bush, the man without a brain

Matt and I chaperoned the middle school dance in '04. We went along with the Wizard of Oz theme the teachers were doing. Matt was a munchkin and I was the Wizard.

In '05 I dressed up as Salvador Dali's ghost. The chaperones this year had the theme of ghosts, I think.

This is my costume from '06. The focus artist in the fall at my school was Peter Max. Laura and I chaperoning the middle school dance.
