Welcome to my life. It's a whirlwind of kids, chaos, pets, people, family, art, and being home (most of the time; I like to get out here and there). We unschool, so the unexpected is, well, expected...

More on Halloween stuff

Just thought I'd share this because I got an email from the folks at Frighttown with a link to the Willamette Week Online edition. I clicked and was pleasantly surprised to see Chamille's face, the very first picture!

It's a proud mom moment!

ok here's one



To me, this picture doesn't even look like me, so COOL! I look absolutely nasty! I was a generic monster person, so that I could go through and relieve actors long enough for them to use the bathroom and stuff.

We have 2 more nights, so I will try to get some more pictures that are a little better than all these kind of fuzzy ones. I wish I would've gotten a pic of Chamille last night, because she was really gross. When she was done, she took off her mask almost immediately because it was uncomfortable and smelled bad, that's what she said when she took it off anyway.

A quick update!

Well, yes my excuse is that we've been busy... yeah I'm sure no one's heard that one before!

I'm just doing a quick up date...

Chamille and I have been busy with http://www.frighttown.com/

It's been exhausting and we only go twice a week. There are a few people that actually go every night it's open! Chamille would probably go more often if our family could swing it, but alas, I must go with as per our special arrangement because Chamille is so young. So that means John must rearrage his work schedule to accommodate us and hang out with Margaux, who wants NOTHING to do with all that scary stuff.

It's been amazingly fun to scare people. I didn't think I would enjoy as much as I have been! Chamille and I have been learning a LOT about makeup and latex and all that good stuff. We are part of the make-up team, so we get there really early on the nights we go.

Here's a couple of pictures of Chamille. Sorry, I don't have any of me...
the first two are from the Chop Shop, she's a zombie mutant monster and the second two are from Elshoff Manor the Asylum as a shock therapy patient.
