Growing Up Creepie!!

For those of you who don't know who Creepie is, here you go. Mia refused to put on your Princess Leia costume before Halloween. So here she is as Creepie, an orphan girl raised by Praying Mantises and a family full of thousands of bugs.

I think we did pretty good.

Saturdays on Discovery Kids!

Mia's speak...

Just a few of the funny things Mia has said today that I thought you would enjoy...

Mia: Mom, I really need to go potty.
Mom: Well go then!
Mia: But I'm scared of Frankenstein.
Mom: Why?
Mia: because he lives in the toilet.
Mom: Frankenstein doesn't live in the toilet.
Mia: Where does Frankenstein live then?
Mom: In Europe.
Mia: Does Europe have a toilet? Gardner Village to see the Witches.

Mia kept running away, easily distracted by the people and witches. So, I got out the Harness, or Baby Leash meant for Julia and strapped Mia in it. After a minute she got the idea.

Mia: What am I a dog or somethin'?

She stayed by us after that.

At one of the witches a girl looked over at Mia.

Mia: Mom, I think that girl is jealous of me.
Mom: Why?
Mia: Because I'm cute mom. She was jealous of my clothes, I think.

Aren't you a little short to be a ....Princess Leia?

Just giving you a taste of what is to come. Like the wig? I'm still not sure if I want to use it or not, but if she loves it.

I was thinking of making Jules Yoda or R2-D2. Give me your opinion.

Bad Idea?

Can you see what is wrong with this picture? Everything!
The kids wanted to make a house using real wood. They tried to balance it with the flimsy plastic patio chairs.
I think Becka and I were partly to blame. We saw what they were doing, and quickly left for Old Town in center Fort Collins.
I wished I had taken a picture of the pile of gold fish crackers. It was on the ground at the bottom of a tomato plant wire coop, which they tied to a pole with bungee cords and put Julia in the middle of like a cage. Really sorry I missed that one.
