what a week...

Before I'm off to work this morning, I wanted to post to document how tired I am! I fell asleep on the couch two evenings this week. Good news is this should be my last Saturday working for a long, long time since I got a new job as an evening librarian at a university. In just a couple weeks, Cadie will be home with me during the day and not in daycare. I'll be dealing with significantly less crazy people (had an unpleasant altercation with a man looking at inappropriate images on a library computer yesterday) and doing more research oriented work.

Between resigning and starting to say my goodbyes and trying to get ready for my new position, I just need to relax! I'm excited for several days off next week for Thanksgiving and my birthday.

Halloween, a week late

Last year, Cadence pretty much hated the Fall Festival at church (of course, she was not even 2 months old). This year, it went a lot better. We started with a cute costume. She was "Cadie-bug the Lady-Bug." Her costume was adorable, but she wasn't sure about it at first. I think it just felt really different from her regular clothes. She was trying to take off her antennae headbead for awhile, then seemed to get used to it.

We had a bug theme with our outfits. I was a bee, and Matt was a Beatle. Get it? That's the Beatle suit he bought for our friends Rick and Chrissy's wedding this summer. He'll be wearing it every Halloween from now on...because that's the most expensive suit he owns.

She liked watching the big kids play games and listening to the music on the CD player by the cake walk.
When it came time for the trunk-or-treating in the church parking lot, Cadie didn't really get it. She just wanted to walk up and down the aisles. If you look at her hands in this last picture though, I think she shows her true colors. (She's got a sweet tooth, we just haven't let her discover it yet.)
That's a Hershey bar in one hand and a chocolate coin in the other. We didn't let her eat them. She had some mini M&M's and liked them.
