Halloween Costumes

I love to dress up for Halloween and felt bad that I hadn't put anything together. I decided to whip up this beautiful piece before the trick-or-treaters came.  After much nagging, Tyler came up with his own costume!  He said that the cowboy boots were just "added value".  He put on this whole act every time a kid came to the door.
Dallas was a hippie . . .  .

Trick or Treat?

Tyler's pumpkin carving skills came in handy to help make our porch scary for Halloween night!

Olympus High School Homecoming

Our little princess is growing up. Dallas went to her first homecoming dance last weekend. We had so much fun shopping for her outfit.  Our cute neighbor Mandy helped us out in the hair dept - thanks!  Dallas's date Mo was just as nervous as she was. He brought her the most beautiful purple roses - My favorite. Tyler had to remind me that they weren't for me.  Dallas looked so cute but most of all had a great time.

Thriller - Girls Night Out!

We had so much fun out for the night with the girls. We went to see Odyssey Dance Theatre's Thriller.  We were hoping that Kelsey would miraculously go into labor so we could end our night with her new baby, but that didn't happen. Even though there was no new baby, we had an fun night - thanks Kels!

Carve pumkins? I have a better idea . . . .

I found this picture online. I think this is the best idea I have seen. Less mess and so many more laughs!

Oops! Wrong size

We finally got the costume in the mail. It doesn't fit at all. Look at the braids on her face.  She looks like a fat dog in a little dress!  She is going to have to go without this year. Sorry Nana!

Tyler and I just bought this costume last night for Nana. She will be so cute. It makes me laugh every time I see it. I can't wait for it to come!

If you have difficulty understanding the current world financial situation, the following should help...

My uncle sent this to me, I think it is so funny!

Once upon a time in a village in India, a man announced to the villagers that he would buy monkeys for $10.

The villagers seeing there were many monkeys around, went out to the forest and started catching them. The man bought thousands at $10, but, as the supply started to diminish, the villagers stopped their efforts. The manfurther announced that he would now buy at $20. This renewed the efforts of the villagers and they started catching monkeys again.

Soon the supply diminished even further and people started going back to their farms. The offer rate increased to $25 and the supply of monkeys became so little that it was an effort to even see a monkey, let alone catch it!

The man now announced that he would buy monkeys at $50! However, since he had to go to the city on some business, his assistant would now act as buyer, on his behalf.

In the absence of the man, the assistant told the villagers: 'Look at all these monkeys in the big cage that the man has collected. I will sell them to you at $35 and when he returns from the city, you can sell them back to him for $50.'

The villagers squeezed together their savings and bought all the monkeys.

Then they never saw the man or his assistant again, only monkeys everywhere!  Welcome to WALL STREET.
