A Dog Ate My Blog

Happy Halloween from our Frankenfam

Reasons I havent posted:

  1. A dog ate my blog
  2. Im checking my sources, but it might be against my religion
  3. No one is paying me to do this and as you know, Im all about the benjamins, baby.
  4. I've been tied up working on my novel
  5. So many episodes of Ancient Aliens, so little time
  6. The feds are after me
  7. I have no clothes
  8. Watering plants takes priority
  9. I have a newborn at home
  10. My computer has a green monkey virus 
That list was full of half-truths. I'll leave it at that. Anywho, here are our some pics from Halloween. We had way too much fun making our costumes. I stayed up till 4:30am sewing mine. I made it out of some curtain fabric stuff I got at a thrift store for $2. I have been taking private sewing lessons in my home from a lady I found on Craigslist. She hasn't killed me yet so it is going well. It's a lot of fun and I am filled with passion cause I have wanted to sew my entire life. Sochi's costume was a collaborative effort between her dad and I. (Much like her conception except I tried to take all the credit for this one.)  Nacho made her flatforms by buying a pair of baby shoes, inking them black, then layering and gluing foam to the bottom. I made her bolt collar with rolled up felt. He decorated her shirt to say "Frank N Baby" and I tried to sew a collar onto some black cape thing my mom bought at the dollar store. Don't even ask me how I did it cause I still dont know. We took "him" trick or treating. Of course, everyone thought she was a boy. Our costumes were inspired by her hair.

Gotta get back to eating her Halloween candy now, uh I mean working off my baby weight.

California love,
