Happy Halloween Part 1

Sarah and I were invited to a 30th birthday party Saturday night (what up, Nicole!) so we needed to find a sitter for our 19-month old. Since our daughter (pictured above) was already committed to working at a local haunted hayride, we asked Sarah’s dad to come over and look after Eli. He was more than happy to do it, but knowing we would probably be late, we worked it out with darling daughter that she would come home as soon as she could to relieve her “Poppy.” Which she did – unfortunately, it was a very busy night at the hayride, so “as soon as she could” was not until after midnight.  

But she did come right home, sent her tired grandfather on his way, and was in the process of getting herself ready for bed when Eli started crying.  Being the caring older sister that she is, Julianna went directly to her baby brother’s room to soothe him back to sleep.  Problem is, she forgot she was still in full fright make-up from the haunted hayride!  So the poor baby looks up from his crib to find a white faced witch staring down at him. Needless to say, he was still awake when we got home.


  1. Hahahahahahaha!
    Poor baby!
    Wait until the next time you try to go out and leave him with a sitter.....

  2. oh no! but at least you guys had fun while you were out :) when he gets a few years older (s'posin he might not stay in) remind him if he keeps getting out of bed that the witch will show up again ;) btw, is she available to sit for new years? with the makeup?
