Angry Toddler got a haircut!

Angry Toddler has this weird hay-like hair. It's straight as a board and doesn't lay flat. When it starts to get past an inch, it just looks awful. He never had those cute baby curls. He had this weird hair that grew over his ears and just laid there.

He got his first haircut at about 10-11 months. We've been getting them ever since about every 2 months or so. He needs haircuts sooner, but well, it's a complete nightmare doing it.

We thought we would try a new place closer to our house. We went to an actual barber shop. Of course, they had a toy area set-up in the back, so Caden wanted nothing to do with the rest of us. We tried to put him in the chair, and of course he screamed. We even gave him suckers. Nope, that didn't work. Cause all he said was, "More suckers peas, more SUCKERS".

He finally calmed down, but Angry Husband had to sit in the chair and hold Angry Toddler in his lap. One of the other barbers felt bad that AT was crying. He got a tissue and was wiping away his tears. It was soo cute!

The barber spent alot of time on his haircut and did an awesome job. Even AH said that she was worried at first, but it turned out really good.

I was able to take a picture last night when we got home. He was not happy when I took it. The husband had just promised him a bath, and he was anxious to get in the bathroom. He keep saying, "Mama, noo picture, noo picture!"

It's more of a buzz cut than a hair cut, I know!

Oh, and the best moment of the night. I'm warning you....TMI. The kid pooped in the tub for the second night in a row.. Angry Husband told me that it was my turn to clean it up.

I'm going to stop over

I'm going to stop over. Angry Husband just called me and told me this. Angry Husband does installations of custom home theaters. He is in a mobil job. He works with a partner, well actually, he has a temporary new partner.

Angry Julie just woke up, cause she got off work at 2:30. Julie is sitting at her computer, reading her blogs and e-mails. Julie is wearing a white t-shirt and underwear, no pants, no bra.

Thanks for the notice, Angry Husband. So I ran and threw on some pants and a bra. Our house is a mess, cause mommy was at work last night. I really don't feel like picking up all the toys and clothes, that all belong to Angry Toddler. I always try and pick everything up before bedtime. It's kinda my ritual. I always warn the husband to pick up, cause you never know if someone is going to stop by.

Oh, and it's lunchtime, does he offer to bring me some lunch? No. I bet that HE will show up with lunch though.

Ok, my rant is over. But seriously, this happens like every other week.

The Dreaded Christmas Shopping

I have a love/hate relationship with this time of year. I love buying all the presents, but I hate spending all the money. It doesn't help things when the property taxes, car registration, mortgage, and preschool tuition are all due at the same time. Having your husband's birthday fall on December 24th, is probably not the best either.

I went shopping with my mom on Friday, after she finally showed up at my house. We ventured to Toys R' Us first. It was quite calm there, and not crowded. We got a basketball hoop for Angry Toddler. My mom bought some random Anniversary Edition Care Bear. She buys random things like that.

We then ventured on to the mall. We started at Sak's Fifth Avenue. Usually, I don't shop at Sak's, because it's a little rich for my blood. But, when they have a sale, they have an awesome sale. We got 5 shirts, 1 pair of pants, and 1 pair of shorts for Caden. They were all Ralph Lauren. We paid around $60 with tax.

We then ventured around the rest of the mall. It was crowded, but not to full capacity. I think we beat the early shoppers, since they had already gone home. My mom bought a shirt for my dad.

We then went to one of my mecca stores. I don't know why I get soo excited, but I love love love Pottery Barn Kids. I walked in and saw the bed that I've been eyeing for Caden. It's a twin size bed with storage drawers underneath. Caden is getting really restless in his toddler bed. He barely sleeps in there the entire night. I think that he likes to spread out. My mom bought the bed for Caden on Friday. I'm repaying her when we get our taxes back, or hit the lottery, whichever comes first.

That was a really big purchase, and I think we were done shopping after that. I'm soo excited. But, now I have to clean up the Angry Toddler's current furniture and put it on Craig's List. It is in almost mint condition, except for some teeth marks.

Throughout the weekend, I have come across some deals. I ordered a Wii game on (for my non-functioning Wii), and I bought one of my holy grail items tonight for Caden (a Step 2 slide).

I still have tons of shopping to do, plus all my Secret Santa items.

We need to take some pictures of the Angry Toddler this week for Christmas Cards. It's going to be a busy week.

Saturday, November 24, 2007


So Angry Husband bought me a Wii for my birthday two weeks ago. We've been really busy with sick child, work, holidays, etc.

Mike turned it on so that I could play it last night. He put in a game and got it all ready.

There was an error message. He has played with it before, and he told me that he got that error message the other day. So he called the store where he bought it. They told him that they've seen that message before. They said that they would do an exchange, BUT they have no Wii's in stock. Well of course, they don't.

So Mike had to go on and place a repair order. Now WE have to send it out to Nintendo and get it replaced.

This is really annoying. Especially since we have some new games coming in the mail for it. I couldn't imagine if some child opened it on Christmas Day and this has happened.

Ugh....Women of the 1950's..

My mother is one of them.

The woman takes literally two hours to get ready. I don't know what she does? I mean really, how long can it take to get ready?

My mother is one of those people who can't leave the house without full make-up or her hair done. She has never been one of those wash and go people. I called her at 7am, YES SEVEN AM. It's now 9:30AM. She is still not at my house.

I just want to go to the mall. Is that too much to ask? It's Black Friday, there's going to be no parking. I'm gonna have to valet my large SUV.

I know that I said, I wasn't going to go shopping today. But why not? I have a minor addiction to shopping. I have the day off, why not!!!

Thanksgiving went well yesterday. We had both sets of our parents here yesterday. This was the second time that they had been together since our wedding, which was in 1998. All went well.

I bought a custom outfit for Thanksgiving. Of course, the kid looked adorable. But after like 10 minutes, he stripped down to his diaper. So the jammies came back on. I hope this phase ends soon. I'm getting really tired of the stripping.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I am giving a tribute to Mickey and Minnie Mouse, since we cannot be with them today. Angry Toddler is just too wild now to sit a table and behave for more than 5 minutes. I wish everyone a great Thanksgiving and not too much family drama!

Bark, Bark, Bark

We live in a townhome community. They are re-doing our roofs. This has been going on since last week. I knew that this was going to be a nightmare because of the dogs.

Sure enough, someone is stomping on my roof at 7am. Yes, 7am! Hello, Angry Julie needs her beauty sleep. What happens. Bark, bark, bark!!!!

Both of our dogs, are running around like crazy animals, barking in circles. It is quite obnoxious.

Here are some pictures of them.

Suspect #1: Bruiser, Primary Barker and Almighty White Wimp

Suspect #2: Wolfie, Shrill Barker, Who Won't Stop

I hope they finish these roofs soon. I couldn't handle it any more this morning. I had to put a bark collar on Wolfie. I know, I know. It's not humane. But at least she's quiet.

My good deed for the week

Usually, I'm a pretty selfish person. Not that it's a bad thing..

I was searching Craig's List the other night when I was at work. Can you tell, I was really bored. So anyway, I sometimes check the wanted section. We have alot of crap in our house, and sometimes people are actually looking for our crap.

Last week, I found someone looking for a Step 2 Play Kitchen. The same play kitchen that Angry Toddler has, that he has not played with in over 6 months. I e-mailed the lady and within a day, the kitchen was sold. I had $80 cash in my pocket!

So on this weekends search, I came across a family looking for reservations to Disneyland on Thanksgiving. They were arriving on Wednesday, and staying through the weekend. They didn't realize that all of the nicer places took reservations and that everything was sold out.

Well, Angry Husband and I made an Executive Decision last week that we would not be using out reservations at the Grand Ballroom. Caden is just too wild right now. We can't put him in a high chair, and he won't sit still for more than 10 minutes. I really don't want to be chasing him around. I would like to enjoy my food.

So, I e-mailed the lady on Craig's List and told her that I had a reservation for 6 people. She was very happy. I gave her all the confirmation information this morning, after I confirmed everything with Disneyland.

We are doing Thanksgiving at our house now. And no, Angry Julie is not cooking. Duh, if you knew me, you already know, I can't cook a thing, yet even boil water. I ordered a pre-made meal from a restaurant called Claim Jumper. It's going to be very tasty!

A glee of happiness in my week

We finally picked shifts at work for next year. I'm working days from January through September, and then nights from September through January 2009. Yippeeee, I get to sleep like normal people.

It's been a long two months so far. I really love working nights, but not with a wild two year old. He gets up at like 7am on the weekends, when I've had only like 3hours of sleep. I've had alot of headaches and back problems with this. I even did a sleep study and they told me that I have sleep apnea. I'm still undergoing testing for that.

So I thought I would post a nice little ticker to remind myself of how long I have to normal sleep!

Starbucks Vent Again!

I went to Starbucks tonight. If you know me, I don't drink coffee. Last week I went to Starbucks with my co-worker, Nicole. She got me hooked on Venti Caramel Apple Cider.

For the past two nights, I've tried to get myself some Apple Cider. But dammit, they are all sold out. Seriously, Starbucks, pull your head out of your butt, and keep this in stock. You are losing customers, not that you care.

Us, non-coffee drinkers, love when there's something new we can try. I got all excited tonight, cause I was waiting till like 10pm, to go to Starbucks. I waited in line, and went to order. Only to be told, that they are sold out. "I'm sorry, but we ran out of cider early tonight." "It's really not the Holiday Season yet, so we are not fully stocked with it".

So I didn't want to look like a total idiot. I ordered a Hot Chocolate, which my stomach did not like. I sometimes tend to ignore my lactose intolerance and it bothers me much much later, like right now at 1am.....

I think I'm going to give up on my quest for cider.

Black Friday

It seems all of my message forums are talking about Black Friday. Everyone is planning out their shopping agendas.

I have not seen anything yet, that I have to have. I'm a total shopper, but I'm just not feeling anything this year. I might some things from Gymboree because I have a 20% off coupon, and with the 30% black friday discount, things might be really cheap.

The Angry Toddler is still too little to "want" the hot new toy. Although, I did find one of those Little Einstein Pat Pat Rockets last week. I see alot of ads with those digital picture frames. I thought about getting one of those for my parents, but the husband nixed that idea.

I think I'm going to sleep in and enjoy my day. I put in to take the day off. I didn't realize that taking off was a tradition for me, but my co-worker told me today, that I take it off every year.

The husband is also off this year too. He is very happy. Since he works for a major retailer, having that day off is a really big thing. I'm sure he will be lounging all day, and playing video games.

Note to self....time to do laundry

I've been totally slacking on the laundry lately. I need to wash towels. The Angry Husband and I had to use this towel to dry off yesterday. It's the Pottery Barn Kids hooded towel. Except, we were using the octopus one.

Angry Toddler Update

We were released from Children's Hospital at 5:15PM, last night.

Caden had a MRI and EEG yesterday morning. The neurologist came in and spoke with us about 4pm. Everything looked normal. She just told us the same thing that his pediatrician told us. He has seizures due to a spike in his fever, and he will outgrow them.

Angry Husband spent the night, Tuesday through Wednesday, with the Angry Toddler. He said that Caden slept and he did not. Apparently there was an infant in the room next door that was not allowed to have any food. The baby cried ALL night long according the husband.

This was our second time at Children's Hospital since Caden was born. I'm not too impressed with them. I'm sure if your kid had a very serious illness, they would receive excellent care. But unfortunately, the average kid doesn't get the same treatment. We were pretty much ignored. We never saw nurses, mostly techs. We had to beg, I mean beg for milk for Caden. We saw two doctors in two days, for about 5 minutes each time.

I cannot wait for the bills to roll in. We have a PPO, so we will have some lovely co-pays.

1. 3 ER Visits
2. 1 Ambulance Ride
3. 3 Different ER doctors
4. Numerous blood tests
5. 1 Chest X-Ray
6. 1 Admitting Doctor at Children's Hospital
7. 1 Overnight Hospital Stay
8. 1 MRI
9. 1 EEG
10. 1 Neurologist

The Angry Toddler is fine today. He woke up with a tiny cough, thanks sick girl from the hospital. We were going to keep him home from preschool today. But at like 8:15, he asked to go see his friends and to play. He hadn't coughed since 6am. I grabbed some clothes and promptly dropped him off at preschool.

We have a follow-up appointment at his pediatrician's office today. I'm sure she will shake her head over all this drama. I don't even think the hospital contacted her about his history.

Happy Birthday to ME~

32 Years Old Today!!!

Ok, now that I posted that, I have to go back to the Hospital. I will do an update on the kid later!

Children's Hospital Orange County

Well, I hate to say this...but he had another seizure at 4:55am, this morning. His temperature was 104 when we left the house for the hospital. We went to the local hospital, they monitored him for about two hours, and then transferred the kid to Children's Hospital Orange County.

The doctors wanted to get him a better consult since this was his 3rd seizure in 24 hours. Angry Husband rode with Caden in the ambulance to the hospital. The EMT had put an IV in his hand and off they went.

Caden wasn't at the hospital for more than 30 minutes, when AH said, why is there blood everywhere? Seriously, the blood was all over the floor. Well, you guessed it! Angry Toddler ripped the IV out like I said he would. Idiots! I then gave them the look, don't you even dare try and put in another IV. He has been taking fluids, needs no IV meds, so don't you dare! They complied.

They stuck in a room with a little girl with bronchitis. Cough, cough, cough!!! Doctors, um my kid is prone to asthma, bronchitis, and upper respiratory infections. Helloooooo!!! Apparently, they are thinking/waiting/who knows on a neurology consult for him. They then said that he would be there overnight.

The kid is in FULL Angry Toddler mode right now. They stuck him in one of those jails, prisons cribs. He was screaming like a caged animal.

I came home to grab some things and then I gotta go back and relieve Angry Husband. Hopefully, we will find out what is wrong with him and get freed from the coop soon!!!

Thanks to everyone who sent their positive thoughts!!!

I've been blogging about myself lately. So I guess I will blog about the Angry Toddler tonight...

The toddler has had some slight sniffles and a cough for the past two weeks. He's adjusting to a new preschool, so we knew this was going to happen. We've been giving him Tylenol, Cold Meds, and Breathing Treatments off and on during this time. It looked like he was going to fight his way through this.

At 5:55AM, this morning, yea that's right, a little over 2 hours after I went to bed, the kid was crying and screaming. This wasn't his normal, I had a bad nightmare scream. This was the omg, it hurts, something is wrong scream. I got off my couch bed and went to his room. Meanwhile the snorer husband was also going to the toddler's room. Angry Husband picked him out of bed. He told me, he's had a seizure, I can tell. The husband moved him to our bed and laid him down. We immediately took off the toddler's clothes and started cooling him down. The toddler still didn't look right, he wouldn't open his eyes and he was grinding his teeth. I made the executive decision and called 911. The paramedics came in full force. As they arrived at our house, AT opened his eyes, and started to look normal.

We advised the medics that AT had a history of Febrile Seizures. This was his 8th or 9th one since he was 16 months old. The medics said that he still looked lethargic and decided to transport him to the hospital.

A febrile seizure, also known as a fever fit or febrile convulsion is a generalized convulsion caused by elevated body temperature. They most commonly occur in children below the age of three and should not be diagnosed in children under the age of 6 months or over the age of 6 years. In many cases, the first sign of fever is the onset of the seizure. It has been theorized that the seizure is triggered by the rapidity of the rise in temperature, rather than the actual temperature reached.

Febrile seizures represent the meeting point between a low seizure threshold (genetically and age determined) - some children have a greater tendency to have a seizure under certain circumstances - and a trigger: fever. The genetic causes of febrile seizures are still being researched.

We then went to the hospital. They checked him out and his temperature was 101 degrees. We do not know what his temperature was at the time of seizure, cause panic had set in. They observed him for a couple of hours; ruled out any illnesses, ear infections, etc, and released us after about an hour.

Good news!!! One of my best friends from Jr. High and High School is a nurse in the ER. I'm very excited and we are going to lunch soon. I had to throw in a little happiness for my day. Now back to the original story.

So we went home and proceeded to eat lunch, nap, and do all the other normal things that we do. We gave AT some Tylenol and Motrin, alternating every couple of hours.

At about 5pm, Angry Husband shouted at me. He's having another seizure. AH felt his forehead and it was extremely hot. I ran and got the ear thermometer. It was all jacked up. WE couldn't get a right temperature reading. So after everything calmed down, we put AT in the car and drove back to the hospital.

We were greeted by the same friendly nurses from this morning. Good thing, I have an awesome working relationship with this hospital, due to me being in there for work all the time. They promptly grabbed a TV and some videos for the AT. They took his temperature at the Hospital and it was 103.5 degrees this time. They do a full blood count, and chest x-ray while we were there. They said that most likely he has a viral infection, due to some spots on his tongue. We were told to follow-up with his doctor and then we were discharged.

AH and I are both really tired. The toddler is now sound asleep, poor little guy. AH and I both called in sick for work today, not that we really missed anything. Although, I ran into a co-worker at the hospital tonight.

We still do not know what is going on with these seizures. I need to make an appointment with the Pediatric Neurologist just to make sure everything is alright. Everyone keeps saying that he will outgrow all of this, I hope so.

I just wanted to type this all out, because all of my friends are asking what happened today. I felt it was easier to do a blog post, then tell the same story via text message 100 times today.

All is well now. I'm going to go watch some TV and enjoy the rest of my work free Monday night!

Rhett Butler's People

I am a huge, huge fan of Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell. I've read the book over ten times. I first read the book in sixth grade. I think that's when my love of reading truly started.

But lately, I've been reading alot of chick lit type books. I try and stay away from the crime dramas, due to my job. I really get sick of crime, sometimes....

But, I was sooo giddy when I saw that there was a new authorized sequel to GWTW coming out. Rhett's Butler's People came out on Tuesday. The book begins twelve years before the Gone with the Wind timeframe.

I reserved the book online Friday night, and picked it up last night. I rarely read hardback books, so this was a moment for me. I decided to take my lunch at Panera Bread, and hide in a booth.

As I was hiding in my booth, I couldn't help but listen to a conversation going on next to me. I admit it, I'm a truly nosey person by nature. Well it appeared that these people were on a blind date. They were in the early 50's. The woman would say, "Oh I love red wine", and then the man would say, "Oh I don't drink nor do I eat red meat". It was hysterical. I felt bad for this woman. She was all done up, make-up, hair, and all. The guy was a total geek. She had this look on her face like she wanted to run away.

I think I got to page two in the book. I will save it for a later day. I'm going to try and relax more this week. It's the week of my 32nd Birthday and I want to enjoy it a little.

Viva Las Vegas Part 3..............Pictures

Here are some photos taken while at LAX Nightclub in Las Vegas.

This picture was taken by Erica. This is a picture of Lindsay and I. Angry Julie is the one with the boy short hair, obviously.

The rest of these pictures were taken by Spy on Vegas dot Com.

P.S. I swear I only had one drink. I have a 2 year old. I don't get out and party much anymore......

Viva Las Vegas Part 2

After leaving Egypt, we returned to our hotel, and ate dinner at Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville. We had some delicious food and drinks. We ran upstairs and changed into our "clubbing clothes".

We then jumped on the monorail and ventured to the Luxor Hotel and Casino. Why? Because it's a big giant pyramid? NO! Because the Luxor, has one of the newest and hottest clubs in Las Vegas. Believe me, Angry Julie is not that hip and original to know these things. I saw this club via a recent episode of The Hills.

I thought, why not? Try and get into this club. Wow, my friends and I were way overdressed. I was wearing jeans, a short, and boots. I did not realize that the dress code was spandex black dress, 1 inch below my butt, with v-neck. I was also about ten years older than most of the other patrons.

I had put my name on a VIP list. But I realized that about 300 people had also done the same thing. We were all in a large group, shoving each other to the front of the line. The bouncers were individually picking people to go into the club. Lindsay and I pushed our way to the front of the line, it took us over an hour to finally get selected to go in. We paid our $20 cover charge (Ladies price), and walked up a dark flight of stairs. I then walked straight to the bar. I decided that I needed a drink after standing in line for so long. I ordered an Adios... Why? Because the drink was $13 and I wanted the drink with the most alcohol in it.

We then pushed our way to the front of the dance floor. We were right behind the line the separated the celebrities and the average peeps. The tunes were flowing, and we started dancing. I hadn't danced like that in a very long time.

As the night passed on, the crowd got deeper and pushier. What a rude crowd it was. Lindsay got yelled at because some girl said, Lindsay's purse was touching her butt. We were like sardines, how could we avoid that. At about midnight, the moment finally came, "Usher stood up and starting singing!!!". I just got better and better from there. The celebrities were flowing, one by one, followed by their Entourages.

According to Spy on Vegas dot Com, the following people were seen at LAX: USHER, Chris Tucker, Quincey Jones, Criss Angel, Grand Master Flash, Laura Prepon, Danny Masterson, BabyFace, Doug E Fresh, David Williams, and Todd Brunson.

I will have to say, I hadn't had fun like that in a very long time. I will do a 3rd installment of this series with the pictures taken at LAX.

Stay Tuned.....

In Search of a Mermaid

I dropped the Angry Toddler off at preschool this morning. He was pissed, because Angry Husband usually takes him. The husband does not understand that you do not break the routine with a toddler. The toddler threw a fit and sat down in the parking lot of the school. I had to carry him into the school like an infant as he was screaming. Of course, as soon as we got to his classroom, he sat right down and played Legos.

I then hop into my vehicle and proceed to leave. As a good wife, I call the house, and speak with the Angry Husband. The husband is home sick, because he's got some cough, snot thing going on. I ask the husband if he wants any medications, concoctions, etc. The Angry Husband requests throat spray on some Vick's. As a good wife, I comply and drive over to the CVS drugstore.

The local CVS drugstore is situated between the local Starbucks and a grocery store. I get parking right up front, a few spaces away from Starbucks. As I park and get out, I get dirty looks from other people trying to park, in front of Starbucks. Like how could I park in front of the store, and not go in there. What is my deal? Can't I park somewhere else? Whatever.....

So I go into CVS, and get the meds for the husband. $12.00 worth, not too bad.

I then decide to go into the local Starbucks. Nothing that I'm a coffee drink, but I wanted one of their yogurt parfaits. I stand in the line of impatient people, and patiently pay for my yogurt. I get a strange look from the cashier when I only want to pay for my yogurt. I get the, "Why are you at Starbucks and not ordering coffee, you idiot" look. I usually order my Venti Passion Tazo Tea Unsweetened, but didn't feel like it today. So I pay my $3.45 for my yogurt and go on my way.

I walk past other angry Starbucks customers. I'm Angry Julie, but these people take the cake. So I walk to my car, as 5 other people are waiting for my spot. I try to back out, but everyone is trying to pull in at the same time. The people are in such a hurry to get their fancy drinks in their white paper cups.

I almost got into 2 separate car accidents trying to get out of that parking lot.

I made it home and sat down to eat my lovely parfait, which they changed their recipe and now it sucks!

Where I've Been...Viva Las Vegas!!

I took a little siesta this weekend and went to Las Vegas. I went to Vegas to visit some friends and other things. I couldn't get Friday off (thanks co-worker who took the night off, but came into work anyway), so I went Saturday and Sunday.

I flew from the airport here in Orange County to Las Vegas, NV. Of course, the flight had barely any people in it. I choose to sit next to a typical Orange County. Mr. Orange County proceeded to tell me that he works for the railroad, that he makes loads of money, and that he brought $12,000 cash with him to Vegas. Mr. Orange County did not care to see that I had my iPod on, and was in the process of reading three different magazines. I tried to ignore Mr. Orange County but he would not shut up!

After a very rough flight, we arrived in Las Vegas. Ahhh, I love the sound of slot machines when you enter the airport terminal. It's such a calming sound to me.

I did a few things in town and then I met up with my friend, Lindsay. Lindsay know each other from parenting forums, and have been chatting online for over a year. We started off the night by going outlet shopping.

I went to the Stride Rite outlet and bought Angry Toddler some shoes. And I know some might be offended, but I got him some light up tennis shoes. They have firetrucks on them with lights.

Lindsay and I agreed that the Angry Toddler would love jumping around in his new shoes. We shopped some more and decided that there was nothing else we would need. Shocking, I know!!! I just wasn't feeling the shopping!

We then ventured to Lindsay's Hotel Egypt. I met some of her Boutique Design Group friends. Lindsay is a customs designer on e-bay. I met some very nice girls. We then ventured back to my Hotel, to get ready for dinner.

I will continue the saga of my Vegas Trip in Part 2 later today...

Mickey's Treat

So we went to Mickey's Treat last night at Disneyland's California Adventure. We debated whether or not to take the stroller. The kid hates the stroller right now, well at least for the past 10 months or so. But, we thought he might flip out, and we would have to shove him in there.

We put his costume on in the parking structure. He really liked the sword. He walked alongside the stroller with no problem.

He was very excited when we got inside. Even more excited when we gave him his treat bucket. He thought the candy was a fabulous thing. "More candy peas!", was his favorite line of the night. The kid would butt in the line and shove other little kids just to get his candy.

My parents and hsuband were quite entertained with all the adult costumes. We saw lots of male, yes male, princesses. I even saw a Snow White with a goatee. There were all sorts of pirates, princesses, Hanna Montanas, and various other costumes.

Overall, it was a great night for the kid.
