Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

Happy Halloween!

Little Bo Peep Abbie and Jack had great Halloween costumes this year. Abbie was Little Bo Peep (she even had a lost sheep) and Jack was Edward the Train. I emphasize Edward because everyone kept calling him "Thomas" and he kept getting mad and telling folks "I'm Edward, not Thomas!".

Julie's sister, Holly, made Jack's awesome costume. The best part about it was she made the back of it into his candy-holder so whenever folks would hand him candy, he'd spin around and look over his shoulder while they dropped it in. Today we found out the candy was actually coal - he said he needed a lot more to keep Edward chugging along.

Edward the Train

Halloween was a blast this year: great costumes, two nights of trick-or-treating, and a parade/party at the kids' school today. Good stuff all around.

Car Bombs

From Sox and Co. party like champs in Denver:

By the bar, players, front office guys and fans were toasting the second Series sweep with "car bombs," which, we are told, is a shot of Jameson's whiskey and a shot of Bailey's dropped into a Guinness stout. Ew.

"After every win we do car bombs," said one Sox exec, who asked to remain nameless. "So I went up to the bar and asked for seven of them. The bartender wasn't happy because it was mobbed. I had to tip him $100 to get them, but we had to do the car bombs."

I'm not happy that the Rockies lost the World Series - but it is good to see the Red Sox know how to party. Hat tip to one of most obsessed Red Sox fans I know.
