Ami and Conrad’s school had a Spooktacular Family Fun Night on Friday. Derek and Jeremia were scarers in the haunted house. I had planned on taking tons of pics but we were so busy there wasn’t time. Luckily I got a couple of shots before we left.
They had so much fun scaring everyone.
I didn’t get a chance to go into the haunted house. I was too busy being the Pocket Lady. I wore a giant apron with 8 or 9 huge pockets on it. Each pocket had prizes. For 2 tickets each kid got to pick a pocket for a prize.
We had a blast.
Just some of the names he answers to:
…the list goes on.
The overgrown plants provided much-needed shade. It was HOT. We were melting and sweating like big pigs. TMI?
Der had to change all of the tires, because it had been sitting for 7 years and the old ones had disintegrated.
He made fast work of it.
He used ratchet straps to pull the square up onto the trailer. There was minimal pushing, which was great, because of the whole melting thing.
Jeremia and Der have been fiddling with it all week. I am excited for the memories they are making together.
She looks happier already.
Derek thinks I’m nuts. I don’t disagree.
All I can say is they were super calm and I approached vvveeerrryyy slowly.
They were too busy working to pay me any mind.
I love how the comb looks like petals, rounded at the edges.
I remember the hive being much bigger last time. Fear has a way of distorting memories. It’s been in Der’s mom’s backyard for years. In times past I steered clear of it. This time, for whatever reason, I allowed myself to stop and admire the beauty of it and forgot to be afraid.
This little guy has seen better days. I never realized their bodies have white polka dots.
I feel so blessed that I got to hold him.
Signs of fall.
I bought 2 of these flowering vines on clearance. They’ve been doing really well.
Let’s hope I remember to cover them when the weather calls for freezing temps.
She’s my newest dress form. I like her imperfections.
I have no idea how old she is. She has no markings. Google did not help. Anybody have a guess?
I love the painted fence so much. It makes the perfect backdrop. I hope you aren’t tired of seeing it yet.
We had some fun making simple Halloween decorations.
We made bats and spiders using black paper plates, elmers glue and construction paper. We also made candy corn.
Nothing fancy just cutting an glueing. We had a lot of fun with it though.
And Jeremia had us cracking up with his.
It says “I’m a social worker. I have bad social skills”
JP spent a lot of time on his social worker. He’s even holding a little briefcase with the tip of his wing.
We hung it all up in the alcove out front.
