The leaves are dropping fast now and even snow is slighting falling where leaves once were.
I LOVE fall and all its wonders. Our mountains change so quickly. From end of summer sunbaked brown and honey-colored weeds to bright golds, fiery reds and burnt orange. And to have it all out my front window, makes me warm, merry and cozy to the bone. Let's not forget all the other goodies that come along with dancing leaves.
Moon up not wanting to miss all the fun. It is the perfect day for The Dirty Dash.
We were able to get there in time to see Matt and his teammates cross the finish line - which is crawling through this mud pit :) He is the one just going under the last line of flags.
Meet the Dirty Bastards. April, Matt, Alene, Tyler and sorry dude on the end. I don't know you (Kris, says Matt).
Kisses for Daddy
The one clean spot.
Last but not least a cold crowed community shower. So worth it. I hope I get to do this one day, and you would too if you could have seen the GIANT slip-n-slide that goes down the whole length of a mountainside.
Happy fish catcher.
And this is where I spent my evening, in charge of the cakewalk.
And yes, sometimes my kids were the only ones there - showing the others of course how fun it is and could be.
Happy Birthday to ME!! 29! For some reason I tell people I am a year older than I really am, never on purpose but I don't think I'm going to have that problem this year.
Me and my best friends
I love ice cream cake especially when shaped like a pumpkin.
Halloween Parade. The school lined the hallways with chairs so parents and family could come watch and cheer.
Little Red Riding Hood
Bella finally made her way to the booth I was working for the Halloween party 2 min before it was over.
Watching the kids trick-or-treat at Matt's work. Don't ask. Everyone wanted to know who or what I was. Can't I just be festive in my own way? I was going to be a pumpkin but then decided I didn't want black triangle eyes and nose for the rest of the weekend. And don't worry, I did dress up two other times.
Oey so joyful over the amount of free candy at every angle - And that face looks just like my sister Glory at that age. Too great.
Taking a break to dig in. They complained that their bags were too heavy and they wanted us to hold them. They didn't get any sympathy from us.
My Heaven which slowly turned to Hell and then I said - what the heck. It is only once a year. Who cares if I only eat candy for ten days straight? Got to see the light and enjoy.
Boo at the Zoo. Trick-or-treating with cousin Milly. We also visited haunted houses and trick or treated at the church.
My homegrown jack-o-lantern
The real All Hallow's Eve.
A picture that Matt took that pleases the eye.
Oey, holding on to those Halloween books. Eager for Halloween to come again. Which it will, all too soon and not soon enough.
