Call for Halloween photos!

Every year, around this time, my neighbourhood starts to go crazy with the Halloween decorations.  "You'd think that it was a religious holiday!" I kvetch to my husband, as pumpkins start to appear on doorsteps, fake cobweb is hung in trees, and tiny little costumes (even some for the family pet!) start to fill the aisles of our local Target store.  "I don't get it."

Hi, everyone. Welcome to the group. This is the first group I've created, so if it seems a little spotty, bear with me. I guess I should start things off with an introduction. My name is Erin. I'm 25, SAHM of 2 beautiful little girls - Gracie, 4, and Kairi, 1 month.  I started this group because I know that we all need a place where we can connect with people we can relate to.

Changing outfits just didn't seem an option. No, I had planned to wear this, and wear it I was going to do. So I went downstairs and grabbed some Scotch tape and taped that hem. ...more

Question of the Week: Have you experienced any holiday food fiascos?

My misadventures in the kitchen are legendary, so legendary in fact that my family has just come to expect them as the inevitable fact of my cooking. Let's see there was the time I cooked the turkey with the plastic wrapped neck and gizzards still inside. But who hasn't done that, right? Let me see a show of hands. Thank you, I feel better. ...more
