October 2011 NaBloPoMo is officially over! Jury's still out whether I'll do November. I did sign up for it even though I'm feeling a little burned out. I do like being back in the blogging groove. I wish you could get a free pass every week or two and still be eligible for prizes, but I don't make the rules. I suppose I'll decide tomorrow.

I'm playing fantasy football this year with the worst team I've ever had (my first pick was Jamaal Charles), paying less attention than ever before, and my record is the best it's ever been at this point in the season. (Not that that's saying much.) Go figure.

Oh, I can't forget ... happy Halloween! Claire was a butterfly (modified tonight to be Super Butterfly) and Evan was a pirate. I have a few pictures but haven't gotten them off my camera yet.

After Evan got his hands on some sugar this weekend at an early round of trick-or-treating, Matt and I witnessed a true sugar high. For the first hour of his afternoon "nap" we heard nothing but gleeful squealing followed by loud bumps followed by more of the same. He was repeatedly leaping from one side of his crib to the other, and he couldn't have been happier about it. Sweet boy. Can you believe he'll be 1 on Saturday?

How did it get so late so soon?
It's night before it's afternoon.
December's here before it's June.
My goodness how the time has flewn!
How did it get so late so soon?
- Dr. Seuss

You know the shirt that says "Super" that she would wear every day if she could? She insisted on wearing it on Halloween. Thus, Super Butterfly.
