October is all about Halloween. Even if it's October 1st. The girls begged me to buy this little decal. We put it up and by the next morning it had fallen off the wall and ended up in a sticky mess on the floor.
Our washing machine went out. I learned that putting all of your laundry loads in at once moves things along pretty quickly. I also learned that folding your private items out in public or draping your line dry bras out can be a bit uncomfortable. But mostly I realized that the local laundry coin-op is a stinking fascinating place to people watch!
We love our sugar!

I know she's WAY too old for this but Maggie just learned to tie her own shoes. She learned this late for two reasons. One, I'm lazy. Two, these are her first shoes that actually have laces. Better late than never, right?
