Trick or Treat Under the Sea

Trick or Treat Under the Sea is chaotic. It is busy. It is packed. It is a lot of fun if you are, oh, maybe 4 years old or older. If you are a 10 month old baby, it is pretty much insane. The North Carolina Aquarium does a really great job putting this on every year. This was our first time going and I was really impressed with the costumes, decorations, and turn-out. Kingston will love it in a few years.
And I forgot my camera. So no actual pictures of the chaos. Luckily, I took some photos of Kingston before the Mommy and Me party on Monday. He wasn't a big fan of the hat. Drat.

He's a pretty cute engineer. I, for one, would go anywhere his train was heading!

Before we met up with Nigel at the Aquarium (yay, Dad is home!), we went over to Eden's parents' house for Little Miss' birthday party. She is 2 years old today! Happy Birthday Riya! Kingston loved playing with Riya's toys and checking out the other kiddies. We got to see Missy's mom and sister, too, who I hadn't seen since Missy's wedding last year when I was only a few weeks pregnant and wasn't telling anyone. (Missy, have I made you significantly jealous yet? I'm sorry!) We left before cake, but we had a fun time at the party.


Well, as I mentioned, Nigel is home. I have missed him this week. I'm going to go chat with him before I hit the sack. We've been partying all day. I'm pooped!

Stellan Has Arrived!

MckMama Twittered and posted only hours after giving birth to Stellan! There are pictures and everything! I seem to remember not being able to send pictures for a few days after Kingston was born since The Outer Banks Hospital doesn't have wireless internet!?? Is that even legal these days?!
So take a gander at sweet baby Stellan. He is a cute little guy and seems to be doing quite well.
Kingston and I had another uneventful day. We did a little (and I do mean little) work this morning and then spent the chilly, windy day in the house. We went to dinner at LaFogata with Nana and Grandpa and Uncle Mark since Nigel is still out of town. Nigel doesn't quite appreciate "dirty Mexican" like the King family does! I usually try to go there when he is not in town so that I can get my fix without having the "but it isn't authentic Mexican food" discussion. I don't care what it is. I like it! And Kingston enjoyed the chicken from my Quesadilla Deluxe and some refried beans.
Nigel comes home tomorrow and Kingston and I are really glad. We have missed him this week and look forward to him coming home just in time to go Trick or Treating Under the Sea! Safe travels, Dad. See you tomorrow!

2 Things Happened Today

We, well I, voted.


We, well Kingston, trashed the living room.

That was all we did today worth mentioning!

Oh, and please pray for McMama tomorrow morning as Stellan makes his planned entrance into this world. Pray hard that his heart is healed or can at least be fixed. Crazy as it sounds, I am so excited and nervous for this family whom I have never met!

As Promised

Pictures from Harvest Heyday at the Elizabethan Gardens. Nana, Kingston and I headed over on Sunday for a little Fall inspiration. The last time we were at the Gardens, Kingston was only a few months old. See?

This time he still wasn't old enough to participate in the fun things like the hay maze and the apple rolling contest but he almost got his face painted except he wasn't looking like he wanted to sit still long enough for my Elementary School art teacher to paint a pumpkin on his cheek! We saw lots of friends and ate a brownie from the bake sale.
And then the photo shoot happened.

It was a beautiful fall day and we enjoyed our afternoon. We are participating in all sorts of seasonal activities! Tonight we went to a Mommy and Me Halloween party and had fun with a bunch of crazy kids. We are looking foward to all of our other events coming up. Just wait until you see Kingston in his Halloween costume. We are going to the North Carolina Aquarium for their Trick or Treat Under the Sea on Thursday night. Pictures to come!

Not Me Monday!

Can you believe it is Monday again?! Crazy how time flies these days.

Well, let's jump right in.

I DID NOT. . .

. . . let Kingston go to bed every night this past week without brushing his teeth. He's going to lose them eventually anyway, right?

. . . watch Kingston pull DVD's off of the TV stand and let him drop them on the floor. And all of those DVD's are not in a pile on the floor now, still.

. . . try on everything in my closet yesterday morning, looking for something to wear to church. And all of those clothes are not in a pile on my floor now, still.

. . . miss an entire fall/winter season of clothes last year because I was pregnant or just had a baby. Having said that, I definitely have tons of cute things to wear this fall/winter. I'm so excited about all of the fun clothes I have to wear. Right.

. . . just almost buy a bunch of cute girl stuff on to give to whoever I know that has a girl just so that I could buy the really cute girl stuff! I never look at the cute girl stuff just to look. Nope.

That's all I can think of that I didn't do. For better Not Me's, go on over to My Charming Kids and check out the other people's Not Me's. I'm sure they are much better at remembering what they didn't do than I am!

Stellan Will Live!

Who is Stellan, you are wondering? Stellan is the unborn baby boy of McMama, who I am clearly obsessed with. I mean, I think I have posted more about My Charming Kids than I have about my own kid!! Anyway, read her blog to see who Stellan is, and will be, in less than a week. Pretty amazing story.

Remember when I won the caption contest on McMama's blog? Well, I got my prize in the mail yesterday. I am the proud new owner of 5 orange bracelets that say "Stellan Will Live" and "". I love the bracelets and now need to find 4 other friends to give one to. Let me know if you are dying for one and I'll think about sending it to you! I will be wearing my bracelet to the Harvest Heyday at the Elizabethan Gardens this afternoon. (Don't worry. I'll take pictures and report back!)


Kingston spent ALL DAY and ALL NIGHT with Nana and Grandpa yesterday. I had to work at Pig Stein all day and thought it would be the perfect opportunity for Kingston to practice spending the night away from home. According to Nana's report, everything went quite well. We will have to take advantage of this option more often, although I will admit to missing the little guy quite a bit. Nigel and I giggled in bed last night when we both said that the house was too quiet without him. I mean, the kid doesn't even make any noise at 11:25 at night, so why did we think it was extra quiet?!

Anyway, I'm glad to have him home and Nana must still be a big fan because she agreed to go to Harvest Heyday with us this afternoon! We just can't get enough of this kid!

Make Believe Dialong: Mama and Kingston

Kingston: Mama, what are you doing?

Mama: Well, Punkin, I'm cleaning.

Kingston: What is cleaning, Mama? I've never seen you do that to the doors, counters and sinks before.

Mama: Mama is cleaning because Dada's boss is coming to stay with us for 4 days and he is coming tonight. And you are how old? Oh. 10 months. And I haven't cleaned in at least 10 months.

Kingston: But why don't you just clean a little every day?

Mama: Because I hate it, Punkin. I hate it.

Aaaachooooo! Sniff, Sniff! Cough.

Yeah. We have colds. All of us. I started this whole fiasco on Monday with a sore throat and runny nose. That has since progressed to a full head, snot for days and a post nasal drip cough when I lay down. Yesterday morning I noticed Kingston sneezing a few times and feeling a little warm. As the day went on, so did his symptoms. By dinner time he has a dripping nose and was acting a little "off". Now this morning, Nigel has a scratchy throat. Great. Fun times.

Last night at the dinner table, Kingston was enjoying his big boy dinner of macaroni with a tomato Florentine sauce when out of the blue, Nigel burped. Really loud. Poor little boy nearly jumped out of his seat and turned bright red and started to cry uncontrollably. That was when we knew something was wrong. I mean, Nigel burps at the dinner table all the time. It doesn't usually even phase Kingston!

Trying to get Kingston to sleep was a whole other matter. If only babies could blow their nose. Every time I brought out the nose sucker-outer, he would cry hysterically. Hates it. So I would put it away and try to rock him to sleep. Finally that worked and he only woke up 3 times in the night. And how do you suck on a pacifier when you can't breathe? No good.

So this morning Kingston is rosy-cheeked and snotty. But that hasn't stopped him from playing. He just leaves a snot trail behind and the dog really enjoys cleaning that up.

There is nothing worse in life than seeing your child hurting and uncomfortable and knowing there is nothing you can do to help. I take comfort in the fact that misery loves company but I'm not sure how to explain that to a 10 month old!

When Kerry Got Married. . .

she became Kerry Ruggieri (say it like it rhymes because it does!)! What a wonderful wedding weekend. The weather wasn't perfect, but it was nice enough to have the ceremony outside in the Forrest Theater, right across the street from Cobb Dorm (affectionately known as "Cobby T" or "Cobb Theater". Don't ask.), where all of my favorite Carolina girls and me resided our Sophomore year (Kerry's Freshman year). The bridesmaids were beautiful, the groomsmen were handsome, and the ceremony was great. Kers looked absolutely gorgeous and her dress was amazing. She and Joe looked so comfortable and in love.

The reception was so much fun! Kers and Joe danced to Josh Turner's "Would You Go With Me" and it was such a great dance. We stuffed our faces with good food like shrimp and grits and a taco bar and had a few beverages, alcoholic and non. Then we were so excited to see Atlanta Rhythm and Groove as the band because my friend Lauren had them at her reception a few years ago and they were the best party band ever! They didn't disappoint us in Chapel Hill, either. Since I am a terrible dancer (I mean, what are you supposed to do with your arms while moving your feet?) I loved their playlist because they play songs that you can pretty much just shuffle your feet and clap to. Perfect! We danced and danced and danced some more. They were supposed to stop at 11:00 but I think I saw Joe tell them that he would pay them anything they wanted to just play 1 more hour! It was that much fun! They ended up playing another 30 minutes and I'm not sure how much that cost Joe but I think it was worth it!
So to Kers and Joe, I am so happy for you. Kers is one of the most special people I have ever met in my life. She is so caring, giving, and selfless. She is super-intelligent and so motivated. I am so proud of her in so many ways. I mean, Google her. Kerry Slatkoff. She actually comes up with a bunch of impressive things about her! (Google me and I don't even exist in cyber space!!!) I don't know Joe as well but he is a perfect match for Kers. These two are going to places, and I don't just mean Thailand and Malaysia for their honeymoon! They are going to do great things individually and as a couple. They are good people.

I was trying to make this whole post about Kers but I had to throw in a few pics of my handsome date. He sat next to Lauren's little girl, McLain at the wedding. Then he sat with me during cocktail hour until he met up with his babysitter friend.

And I have to giggle because now my friend's name is Kerry Ruggieri!

Not Me Monday!

We are home from the fun wedding weekend! And it just happens to be Not Me Monday! So we will jump right in!
I DID NOT. . .
. . . decide on the 4 hour car ride home that I would wait a few days to post about Kerry's wedding so that I could post Not Me's first and then devote a whole post to the weekend. I mean, I would want my very own post if I were Kers. I am TOTALLY sure this is the most important thing on her mind as she and her new husband get back to NYC and then pack for their honeymoon to Malaysia and Thailand.
. . . NOT shave my legs before the wedding because my husband wasn't with me, no one else would be touching my legs, and I was too lazy. I definitely love to shave my legs and do it daily. Right.
. . . feed Kingston Goldfish, wheat bread, fruit bars and yogurt bites all weekend. And not much else (other than formula, of course). Oops.
. . . let Kingston cry/scream for 20 minutes in the car because we were "almost there, buddy, just a few more minutes!" and because I didn't want to stop until we had reached Target-our first destination.
. . . listen to Baby Signing Time at least 14 times while it played on repeat in front of Kingston's face to and from Chapel Hill. I am NOT a HUGE fan of the portable DVD player for long trips. And I would NEVER let my child watch that much TV. Good thing I didn't do that.
. . . leave Kingston with a babysitter that I had never met 2 nights in a row. In a hotel room. And Lars and I didn't share the sitter, and the second night, the sitter DID NOT sit in Lauren's room with sleeping McLain while sleeping Kingston was in the next room by himself (with a monitor on, of course). Nope. I'm way too overprotective for that.
. . . I am NOT ignoring Kingston right now while he tries to crawl out Able's doggie door. I am NOT waiting until his feet are actually out the door before I peel myself off the couch to grab him and bring him back in.
I think that should do it for this week. I DIDN'T do a lot more things but my kid is on the porch by himself in the 40 degree weather in a T-shirt and no socks. I should really go get him. Stay tuned for wedding fun!
**********Edited to read: I DID NOT forget to direct you to the original Not Me Monday Mama, McMama at My Charming Kids. She is a hoot. Check her out and see how many other people participate in Not Me Monday! It's crazy!

My Trip is Delayed!

I was planning on being on the road right now. On my way to Chapel Hill for a fun-filled weekend with my girls.

Remember those expensive jeans I bought? Yeah. I took them to Alterations by Lucy to get about 6 inches taken off of the bottom (wonder why "real" jeans always come in a length that would only fit Yao Ming?). I stressed to Lucy (at least I assume her name is Lucy) that I needed them Thursday afternoon at the latest. In her Russian accent, (after she told me that the jeans that I was currently wearing needed to be hemmed, too) she told me that they would be ready after 2:30 on Thursday. Perfect, right?

Yeah. Perfect if I had remembered to pick them up yesterday after 2:30. I think it was something like 5:15 when I realized I hadn't picked them up, and Lucy heads home at 4:00. Great. And she doesn't open until 10:00 on Friday morning, and I have been warned that she is rarely on time.

Sooooo. . . I will be leaving a little after 10:00, after I pick up my jeans from Lucy. I believe that I delivered at least 1/2 of my brain at the same time as I delivered my precious baby boy. I got to keep the baby boy but I think the brain went in the bucket with the rest of the "extra stuff" that was thrown away.

Stuff and Things

We live in a really great place. Sometimes we forget it, but when we do take advantage of it, it reminds me of how lucky we are. Nigel, Kingston and I have gone to the beach almost every evening for the past week. Fall on the Outer Banks is always amazing, and this year is no different. There have been waves, so Nigel has surfed, and Kingston and I have wallowed in the sand. The weather has been perfect and the beach has been beautiful. Kingston loves to be outside and often fusses when we go inside!

I am not posting this to rub it in to all of you poor souls who live. . . no, I can't even say the dreaded word. It is too harsh. Too cruel. But you might not understand what I'm trying to say, so I will try it again. I am not posting this to rub it in to all of you poor souls who live. . . inland. Oooh. I'm truly sorry about that. I'm just sharing one of the fun, special, family-type outings we have been having this week. If you live. . . inland. . . I'm sorry about your luck. Come visit! It sure is beautiful here.
Kingston crawled today. Now, don't get me wrong, he has been mobile for weeks now, but his favorite form of mobility has been the army crawl (effectively graying the front of all of his light colored shirts). Today he legitimately crawled. And Nana was here to witness it. In the past 2 days, Kingston has more than made up for his slow attempts at getting around. He is cruising, really crawling, and climbing on things. He even pushes his Thomas the Tank Engine toy and walks behind it! He stayed standing all by himself for about 2 seconds today! I guess he's just been saving up and is now letting it all out.
Kingston can wave and give high 5's on demand. Well, most of the time. He often likes to wave at people who aren't really even looking at him or at inanimate objects, but that's OK. Sometimes he performs!
My good friend Kerry is getting married in Chapel Hill this weekend. I am SO excited to see it all go down! I haven't been to Chapel Hill in a long time and Kingston has never been there, and Kerry has never even met Kingston. I am looking forward to spending a weekend with my college friends and seeing Kerry marry her best friend, Joe. I remember perfectly the day we told Kerry that she would end up dating her "just friend" Joe. We were in Chapel Hill, and I think we where headed to the airport to either pick someone up or drop them off. I also remember the morning in Charleston when we woke up to find Kers showing off the new ring that Joe had given her on the beach in the rain at 6 a.m.! So much fun.

Nigel can't go with us to Chapel Hill because he has been invited to participate in a local surf contest, The Battle of the Banks, and the waiting period for the contest starts on Sunday. If he were with me in Chapel Hill and they decided to have the contest on Sunday, we would probably end up divorced!!! I'm so excited and proud that he was chosen as 1 of 12 surfers to represent the Outer Banks against the wankers of Virginia Beach! I'm sad he won't be with us this weekend, but I totally support his decision to stick around, just in case. I am hoping the contest runs on Monday or Tuesday so that Kingston and I can cheer him on to victory! I'll keep you posted on that one.
Have you ever tried M&M's Premiums? That's all I'm going to say on that subject (and I promise no one is paying me to plug them!).
Please visit the CF Husband blog and show them some love. It looks like Tricia has developed a cancer that is not responding to treatment. This little family SO deserves a break. Say a prayer for them, please.
So that was a bunch of random stuff. I looked back on my blog posts from the past few weeks and realized that most of them were Not Me Monday posts. So that means I've pretty much been posting once or twice a week. I must do better than that. I appreciate it when my favorite bloggers do better than that. So here. Random stuff. And remember that I will be out of town until Sunday afternoon. I'll update then!

I bought an expensive pair of jeans today. There. I said it. And I should have spent the money on something else. Pretty much anything BUT this pair of expensive jeans. But I liked them, they looked good on me, and they made me happy. They will serve as my "dressy" jeans that I will wear to the rehearsal dinner of my friends Kerry and Joe this weekend. And I better wear them to EVERY dressy/casual occasion for the next 5 years. They were expensive, at least to cheap old me. But as my brother always says, it's just money. They make it every day. In fact, they're printing it somewhere right now.

I feel so much better now that I got that off my chest. Please don't tell my husband. He knows I got a pair of jeans, but he doesn't know that I spent all of the money I made catering Saturday night on just ONE pair of jeans. Oops. But at least my cousin Jason bought my breakfast this morning! That was $6.00 that I DIDN'T spend today. That's good, right?

Enough about that. Let's talk about my cousin Jason visiting from Charlotte. He comes a handful of times every year and I look forward to his visits every time. We always try to get together at least once while he is here, and try to squeeze in breakfast at The Dunes if at all possible. It was possible today and it was yummy! We spent most of our breakfast remembering "the good old days" of our childhood. For the brief time that we lived in the same town, Jason and I were best buds. We spent lots of time together and made tons of great memories. Hey, Jay, remember singing John Denver and thinking the words were, "thank God I'm a crunchy boy?"! As far as cousins go, I think Jason and I have a pretty special bond and I hope we stay in contact forever.

He leaves tomorrow but I hope he comes back to visit again soon. Have you forgotten about the expensive jeans? Good! That was the point of the cousin story!!!! Thanks, Jason. I owe you one!

New Faces, the Crib and a Butt Crack! Oh, and Not Me Monday!

Pretty catchy title, huh? I thought it summed up our Sunday. And I am going to jump the gun and start Not Me Monday a day early.

Faces: Kingston has a new "funny face" that he makes on occasion. I can't seem to figure out what triggers the face, and there isn't a specific time or place that he makes it. He can turn heads with this face and gets lots of attention and giggles from innocent bystanders when they see it. We like to joke that it is cute and funny now, we just hope he isn't still making the "funny face" when he is 15. Or even 5 for that matter! People keep telling me to get a picture of it. So without further ado, here is the "funny face":

And his new smile, complete with his 4, count em, 4 teeth and at least one more on the way any day now. Maybe the face has something to do with the new teeth. I don't know.

I AM NOT really worried that he will always make this face. Nope. I'm not at least a little nervous that it is some sort of tic that won't go away. I'm so glad I don't even have to think about it, really, because I'm not even worried at all about it.

Crib: I knew this day was coming soon. I didn't expect it to be today and I didn't expect it to happen with such fervor. Kingston can now totally pull himself up to standing in his crib. I went in to get him after he talked for about 45 minutes instead of taking his afternoon nap, only to find him standing up in the crib. With the rocking chair pulled up next to it. With the blanket that was on the back of the rocking chair draped over the Sleep Sheep sound machine. With a big toothy grin. He was quite proud of himself. And I was quite proud of him, too! Forcing him to take a nap is going to be a whole new battle now.

I DO NOT sometimes leave Kingston's sheets on his crib for days at a time. I mean, he's a baby. How dirty can he be? And it is SO easy to put crib sheets on.

Butt Crack: Kingston just discovered tonight that he has a butt crack!!! Hilarious. He was wiggling around in the tub, splashing and swishing his toys around when all of a sudden his hand landed in the crack. That was all she wrote! He dug around for a good minute or 2 while Nigel went to get the camera. We adults take these things for granted. These discoveries are quite fascinating to a small child. We let him explore!

Oooh. I don't think I can come up with a Not Me about Kingston's butt crack. I'll just let that one go.

I was starting to worry that I was losing my blogging enthusiasm. But alas, Sunday has again provided me with more fodder for my silly blog. Faces, cribs and butt cracks. Not Me Monday! Oh, and I won a caption contest on the My Charming Kids Blog!!! How cool am I?!! Check me out!

Could there be better material? You can't make this stuff up.

Tuesday, October 7, 2008

Going. . .

going. . .

going. . .


Able made his own doggie door in the slider screen as soon as we moved in. Kingston has been crawling to the screen and looking out. Until now. He is making a break for it! Time to keep the door closed. Sorry Abe.

Not Me Monday!

I remembered to participate in Not Me Monday for the second Monday in a row! I guess I really underestimated myself, especially since the originator of Not Me Monday writes one of the blogs that I read obsessively, so there really is no way to forget. (For example, I have checked her blog 3 times today already!)
So here goes!

I did NOT cook a pre-marinated pork tenderloin for dinner last night (It was on sale. I know better) and when it wasn't good, I only ate one slice and commented, "It's a good thing there's still some of that Mint Chocolate Chip Breyers in the freezer." As if that is a good substitution for the part of the meal I didn't like.

I did NOT feed Kingston greasy BBQ and then stick his pacifier in his mouth, only to discover when we got to the bank that the paci had become greasy and there was a greasy ring around his lips. I definitely did not wipe his face with my hand and then wipe my hand on my pants.

Any one who knows me knows that I would NEVER put off cleaning the kitchen to post on my blog and read the next installment in the Stephenie Meyer series, New Moon.

I did NOT spend a bunch of money that I do not have on clothes to wear to a wedding in 2 weeks. Oops. But a girl's gotta look good. . . And so does her son. . . And I still haven't found shoes yet. . .

I'm sure I'll think of more later. For now, New Moon is calling!

Anyone else got Not Me's? You are welcome to comment with things that you did, but swear that you would never do! It's pretty fun! I dare you to try it.

Lame Mom

I am so lame. I can't seem to take the camera with me anywhere these days! Yesterday Kingston and I went to Nana's school's Pumpkin Fair and Kingston sat in the "pumpkin patch" with Nana while I picked out a good little pumpkin to take home. At least 4 people commented that we needed to take a picture of him amidst the pumpkins. Can you believe neither of us had a camera with us?! Good thing Mrs. Ward at least got a shot of us to prove that we were there!

Then today, Family Fun Sunday, we went to the park AND to the beach and didn't have the camera with us. After swinging and climbing trees at the park, I attached Kingston's hands to the hanging rings and he hung there by himself for at least 10 seconds! It was hilarious. We might have a gymnast on our hands. Nigel is hoping the male gymnast outfits will get a little more acceptable by the time Kingston would be wearing them!

At the beach, Kingston managed to avoid eating the sand-or maybe he was just planning on taking the sand that he scooped up with the neck of his onesie while crawling home with him for a snack.

My goal in the next few days is to take some pictures of us doing fun things! I swear we had fun this week. I just don't have the pictures to prove it.

I Can't Believe. . .

. . . that Kingston and I finally got together with Eden and Riya! I had a haircut in Manteo this morning so afterwards we headed to Nana and Grandpa's boat that is docked at the Manteo Waterfront. Eden and Riya met us on the boat and we had a fun time playing and talking!

. . . that I met Eden years ago when her ex-boyfriend worked for Nigel at Stone Oven Pizza. LOTS of changes since then, thank goodness! I was re-introduced to Eden at Missy's wedding last year and spent a very small amount of time with her.

. . . that Eden and I have actually become friends through MySpace and our blogs! We pretty much know as much about each other as long-time friends, which is really pretty bizzare when you think about it. Oh, the age of technology. Today was the first time we really spent time together. I think we've been missing out! Kingston and I had tons of fun today! Blogging is awesome but there's nothing quite like real life human interaction. I think we will make more efforts to hang out when she and Riya are in town. Or maybe we will make a trip to Brooklyn!

. . . that neither Eden nor I took a single picture of our get-together! I mean, the 2 blog-obsessed girls, together, with their 2 cute as can be kids and not a picture was taken. How's a girl to post without a cute picture? Will anyone still read my post without one? Oh, dear.

. . . that Kingston is STILL asleep. I hope I didn't just jinx myself!

Brooke Mayo Rocks!

I just got the email I have been waiting for all week. My "professional" pictures by Brooke Mayo were posted today. I can't believe how good she made us all look! That girl is GOOD! I am so happy with how they turned out. Now my problem is deciding which pictures to purchase. Yikes. Wish me luck!

Here is the link to the pictures:

Brooke has amazing talent. But I have to give Kingston a lot of credit, too. He is one cute baby!! His dad is pretty handsome, too! Makes for good pictures when you have good subjects. My whole family is pretty darn good looking, I think.
Enjoy the King/Haynes family photos. Brooke Mayo Rocks!
