Halloween leftovers

So I didn't post lunches at the end of last week. Why? Because I broke my camera. Well, that's the short story.
Long story is...friday AJ brought home some sort of slime in a bag from a Halloween party. He made a whoopie cushion out of this slime and repetitively demanded that Dada come see it. Dada was playing Magic online. Therefore no one was coming to look at his whoopie cushion, and he was going to repeat his request until I lost my hearing. So with wet hands from loading the dishwasher I grabbed my camera and went into the other room to take a picture of it so he would move on to something else. And I slipped, dropped the camera, and it bounced a few times with the lense exposed before coming to rest under the dining room table. I picked it up. I took a picture. And it was a blurry mess. The lense was ruined, and would probably cost more than the price of the camera to fix. I wrestled the lense closed and dejectedly went back to the dishes, knowing that...

TODAY IS THE FIRST DAY OF VEGAN MOFO 2010!!!#%@!!

What to do. First I said a bunch of nasty words. Then I moped. Then I managed to successfully unload the pictures that were still on the camera. I contemplated dropping from Vegan Mofo. But no, I don't give up. Even if I had to post the entire month using embarrassing photos from my iPhone, typing on a screen
the size of my palm or syncing
my phone nightly, I would still
post. But regardless, my grand November welcome would be postponed while I figured out how to proceed.

So I may post twice today while I play with crappy 3G iPhone photographs, but this first post is just the leftovers, which always taste better the next day (or three), right??

Trying to get 4 kids to stand together and pose for a picture is like trying to teach a cat to fetch...but anyhow, here they are in costume...
Much better luck with the jack o' lanterns sitting still for a photo last night...

My boys considered being Mario and Luigi together! I love the owl faces. Good luck with your pictures! When you have presentation as cool as yours, you can stand to have a bit less quality photo. :)
