Getting ready for the Rodeo Round-Up Party at School. They wanted to give me the "serious" look and then a "we're happy because we got out of jail" smile. Not sure where that type of smile came from . . .


Dressed for the big night. My oldest was inside, taking every moment to perfect his costume.
Totally obscene. This was 20 houses worth of candy. Each kid filled a gallon bag with their stash. What has happened to the one piece per house, sometimes getting a penny or pencil, etc? I used to get apples until people starting putting razor blades in them. This will hold them until at least Christmas, when Santa will leave more goodies behind. Then the Easter Bunny will come hopping a long and the sugar glory will continue. My pants will also continue to get tighter as well . . . I find it just too hard to resist all the Almond Joys, Butterfingers, Milky Ways, etc.
A handful of houses actually made treat bags for the kids! Dave caught the kids trying to revisit one of these homes, hoping to rake even more sugar.

Nannie and Papa think you two are the cutest cowboys in Knoxville.
Did you have fun roping some cows and shooting some targets?
Love you.

Just stopping by to say hi. I stop by at least once a week to catch up in what is going on with you all, but I haven't been commenting. Sorry!!
