Halloween Happenings...

Millie and her first grade class on Halloween day!
So glad Mike and I were able to attend Millie's Halloween celebration at school.
Making skeletons....
Halloween Night!  These pictures were taken about 2 minutes before we started our trick or treating.  It was drizzling for the pictures, but stopped immediately after and stayed dry the whole time we were out.  Yeah!  I even dressed up as a scary pictures of me since Mike was working the evening shift this year. 
A bit blurry, but still a keeper!

Getting ready for Autumn

After summer, I usually get so excited about Fall.  I love the changing colors, apple cider, pumpkin picking, Halloween decorating (love it!), woodstove fires and those cool, crisp days (without rain, please...)
It is definitely a tradition to go pumpkin picking at a local farm.

Millie also had her annual Walk-a-thon at her schoolEvery year the money they raise helps pay for programs and technology in her building. Lucky us, it was a surprisingly warm, pleasant day and the kids were exhausted after running and walking so many laps.

Millie did 15 laps in about 1 1/2 hours.

Ta is this years Halloween costume.  My little mermaid girl!
At the Harvest Festival in North Bend to play some games, find some treats and walk thru the scary Haunted House.....and we even got to meet our neighborhood friends doing exactly the same thing.   Here's Millie getting ready to play some "Pin the Nose on the Witch."
A game of broom hockey.  Happy Halloween my friends!

Our life in pictures from April to early September.

So I discovered that we had tons of pictures on our small digital camera.  They were from all the way back in April.  So I thought it would be fun to post my favorites from the last 5 months.  Here is our garden in early April.  I can't believe how green the grass was.  Once July hit, we had almost no rain at all.  My garden did great this year!
Millie on Earth day.
Bingo Night at school.
A gorgeous day to watch the Seattle Mariners in Seattle.
