Trick or Treat

Brett chose to be an M&M and Dane was a pirate. Dane looks bigger than he really is because he has winter clothes underneath the costume. He says he is uncomfortable!
Brett was being silly when I took this picture.

Ho, Ho, HO and a bottle of rum!!

Clay, Brett and Dane are playing outside before they venture off for trick or treating. The weather really cooperated. I did hear on the news that last year on this date it was 72 degrees - and we get excited if it hits fifty degrees this month!!

Tim brought in a haywagon so the big and little kids had a hayride around town as they went trick or treating.

Nancy, Debbie, Stacy and the three little boys ride on the wagon, while Mike, Curt and Tim are in the pickup.

It must not have been too cold because they stayed out the whole two hours.

Clever Halloween Costumes at Elementary School

The early learning teacher and associates always come up with the most clever costumes. Each of them made their own costumes. Emily Stelling (Elmer's glue) said that her husband wanted her to put the fluid ounces at the bottom of costume that would match the amount that would fit in the "Bottle." She opted to go with 842 ounces.

Trish is a red crayola this year - last year, if you remember, she was Big Bird!

The detail in this costume does not show up in the photo. It is made of felt and each letter is individually cut and glued into place.

Even the orange stocking cap looks like the lid on the glue.

A paint pallette makes up the threesome in the classroom. That paintbrush could be a wicked weapon! Great job girls - these are so cute.

New Group for Computer Class at Public Library

In October we started another computer class in which the primary goal is to make us comfortable in using a computer. We work on composing, replying to, forwarding, and adding attachments to an email. We will also spend a considerable amount of time with digital cameras and projects that can be accomplished using our precious pictures.
Amazingly, many of these concepts will seem so easy after we practice them a bit. Everyone is hard at work.
What would I do without Cathy? She volunteers her time to come in an assist with questions - of which there are many.
