Have you ever seen Evita? Well I hadn't until this afternoon, during Mack's glorious nap. I loved it. I know all the music and love it, so it was great to finally see the movie. Here's where it gets weird. Today I turned on the T.V. and glee was on. I am not an avid glee watcher, its good, but I don't know, I just don't watch it religiously, get off my back about it! :) Anywho so today I decided to actually watch it and guess what they sung... a song from Evita.
How crazy that my whole life I had never seen Evita until today, the same day that Evita was showcased on Glee. Man, I feel like I am taking crazy pills. (name that movie)
Just thought I would document the craziness.

A Murder and a Mystery

Have I mentioned my friends Alana and Bethany before? No? Cause I should have, they are awesome. Every year they put on a huge murder mystery party. It is fantastic! This year definitely didn't disappoint. This party was late 50's early 60's mad men era. Me and Cody played characters that I can't actually remember the names of, ha ha, but Cody's character had something to do with politics and mine was some type of skanktastic mistress
(surprised anyone?) ha ha
This was the group. Something like 40ish people.
Alana constructed a wall with cut outs that you could stand behind to make it look like you were pictures. I loved the way it turned out! I wish it was an actual wall in my house. Alana? ...
I made all the food for the party (with the exception of Bethany's fantastic cookies) I made cream puffs, chicken salad sandwiches, cheese ball, and bacon wrapped hot dog things. I think it turned out pretty good.
More food, yum.
Sorry for posting this Meladam (melanie and adam) but this picture was classic.
Me and Codes both won awards. Cody won Mr. Green award, something about being a smooth ladies man. Mine was the Mrs. White award, for being proper and orderly. How cute are these awards?
Cocktail anyone? They had a mocktail station with lots of different drinks!
I got my dress like an hour before the party. It belongs to Cody's adorable little grandma who I absolutely love! After squeezing my fat body into this dress I was informed that grandma had worn this dress when she was 8 months pregnant with her last child!!!!!! Yeah she is tiny, and I am large, both statements are true! but it was such a cute dress.

Alana and Bethany, thanks for such a fun night!

Death to my Soul

My annual passes expired on Friday.

No words to express my grief.

Me, Mack, Deanna, and Raegan made a day trip to D-land last week. It was beautiful and fun, though I must admit a little less laid back than my last trip with just me and Cody.
Mack loved seeing the characters. He loved meeting Jack and Sally, he wasn't scared at all (I was totally beaming with pride) But then like 15 minutes later he was terrified of Bell from beauty and the beast. ...what the.

Anyway if you are sick of this blog having endless Disneyland posts, guess what? They have come to an indefinite end. My life just got 10 notches sadder. ..and that is a lot.

My past few weeks with little Mack have been.. interesting.
I'm sure every mom goes through this, but I feel like Mack has a super bad immune system. Does anyone out there have any advice for how to build it up?
Two weeks ago Mack had a really bad cold. Then he got over it and then a week later got the stupid cold again, which at the time I thought could have been hand mouth and foot disease, but who knows. Then like a week later he got an ear infection, then he was running around on the street on Halloween, face planted it, and chipped his front tooth (along with a bloody nose). Then he got the roseola virus, which is where we are at now.
This morning Mack looked up at me with his big puffy pink face and gave me a big chipped tooth smile. Man, I am failing at being a mom. My poor child. Oh, and if you get grossed out easily you might not want to look at the following pictures. - it is bad and it was weird lighting so the pictures don't even do the horribleness justice . The poor kid has the rash in unmentionable parts oh his body.
I feel like I should prepare myself now for a battle with the flu season. Ugh.
This picture is before he got Roseola, but after he chipped his tooth.
