I wish I was there and that is NOT an understatement. I saw the pic of you and Ethan on facebook you look great. I love the eye liner and no you did not look like cheap you looked great.

Yes I did see Amaya at the Kahuku parade and didn't even notice it was her because I was like - no way! Some cool kindergardener has those shoes! OH MY GOSH I LOVE THEM AND WANT THEM FOR MYSELF THAT IS CRAZY AWESOME! Yes, I fully gasped when I saw this post and was all- THAT WAS AMAYA. It brought out the CAPS in me. You do that I guess.

Love the use of Pop Rocks!

K&S: Do they celebrate Halloween in Japan?

Da: Thanks. :) We wish you were here too.

Jalna: :)

Sienna: I did the exact same thing. Youtube videos and all.

Robyn: Halloween is my fav holiday. I'm a Christmas scrooge this year.

Yummychunklet: Thanks!

Love the pop rocks in the Popsicles. I had some chocolate with pop rocks in them a while ago and it was a fun little surprise.
