Day 272: I'm "The Grossest!"

Too many things!

Remember when I bought that play station for Baby B?  Well, it's been quite the adventure, but I now own 5 left legs and 1 right leg.  The mail man came to my door with the package yesterday and when I saw him I squealed with delight and could not contain my Joyful Moment.  He was trying to tell me that they should have shipped it in a box (the package had torn open), but I was busy telling him that I'd like to hug him except that I thought it might not be appropriate.  And then he left.

And I kept the Joyful Moment going as I put it together.  Actually, Little M slipped the leg into place (take that all you Customer Service Reps who thought I was just to inept to put it together!).  Baby B was asleep, but after he finally woke up and ate his lunch, I stuck him in it.  And he just sat there smiling and talking away as he played in it.  So cute!  And satisfying.

Other Joyful Moments of note included taking the kids trick-or-treating at the gym and having a good time as a family.

Then we left the kids with a baby sitter and headed off to a Halloween Party.  It was really well done.  Tons of fun!  And I won an award for "The Grossest" food.  I'll have to post a picture of it later when I upload to my computer.  But I made intestines.  Awesome!  I totally knew I'd win.  And I'm more than a little competitive, so is it wrong that that was a Joyful Moment for me?

Plus, dressing up was pretty fun in and of itself.  I went as a punk rocker and HH went as Napoleon Dynamite.  Another Joyful Moment was watching him spontaneously do the Napoleon Dynamite dance in front of all our friends.  He's normally a little reserved in public.  But apparently, donning a wig has a liberating effect on him.  It was so funny!  And I loved that our friends got to see a little piece of the hysterical man I married.

Fun fun fun day!

Wishing you all Joyful Moments in excelling at grossness!

I do wish I'd been there to watch Blake. Maybe he'll do a repeat performance at Thanksgiving? Don't forget the wig. :)

I had fun taking Tigger to Wal-Mart with me. Much more joyful than going alone.

I wanna see a picture of HH as ND! I bet it was awesome.
