Meet my new friend

This is my new friend, Alisha. Our small group volunteered last night at the Boys and Girls Club Halloween party. They had enough volunteers, so Jon and I were told to "mingle and hang out with the kids". I was immediately annoyed- what the heck am I going to do for two hours? Two minutes later, I was walking past the line for the haunted house and this cute, tiny little girl grabbed my hand and said, "I'm here by myself, will you hang out with me?". Absolutely.
So Alisha and I played the games, ate candy and chilled all night. She was in love with my baby belly and kept hugging it. She told me I should name the baby "john". When I explained that's what my husbands name was she responded with, "ewwwwww, NEVER MIND". hhahaha. We did go through the haunted house together and she FREAKED. I mean, seriously. She was crying so hard she couldn't breathe. I think it was a little much for a 1st grader. I tried to comfort her the best I could. But when we were waiting for her mom to come pick her up, she walked right up to one of the monsters for the haunted house and punched the guy right in the arm.

A woman after my own heart.
Hopefully I'll get to see her again soon and on a regular basis.
Welp, gotta run- HAPPY HALLOWEEN.

How's the baby registry going? Its hard when you get to that stage where nothing fits, it happens again after you have the baby (thats where I'm at right now). Frustrating. I love the costume idea! Ha ha ha!
Happy Halloween!
