Happy Crappy Halloween

So... Emerson's 2nd Halloween was less than stellar. After spending a good deal of time making her Abby Caddaby costume (which thankfully will fit next year), Emerson spent the evening throwing up into a bucket. Granny stopped by to assist and the evening pretty much sucked. We have a sad picture of Emerson in the costume... not all of the costume... just the parts I could stick her into before the complete meltdown.

Emerson got to pick out her first pumpkin! (Last year she got what she got...) Strangely enough she was more in awe of the white pumpkins than the orange ones. So, one white pumpkin and a wagon ride later it was over.

Happy Fall Y'All!

Now that Emerson is 1.5 (yippie), she has decided to assert her independence. Yes, she is now fond of throwing herself onto the floor or stomping her feet till she gets what she wants. We have found her to be very strong willed and the best way of dealing is distraction and diversion. We just pray that this doesn't foreshadow her teen years. 
The Melting Pot is doing extremely well... yet the McIntyre household is still in the depths of sickness. Emerson and Jaime still have a barking cough and now Eric is sick in bed with the flu. Somehow or another we believe this all to be a test... of what we do not know, but we are dealing.
Looking forward to sharing Emerson's Halloween photos... see ya later!

The Truth About Pink Eye...

Yes it is highly contagious. Yes your eye does turn a nasty shade of red/ pink. Yes it does burn. And Yes, it does produce one heck of a cold that causes you to have no voice and nastyness from head to toe. Whether it was Emerson bringing it home from school or Jaime bringing it home from school... it does not matter. We hate pink eye!
