As I was looking back through some old photos today while working on year end projects, I realized that I never blogged about last year's HALLOWEEN! Oh my goodness, it was the funnest Halloween ever. My little sister brought her fiance Charlie clear from Missouri to have some bridal portraits taken and they happened to be here over Halloween.
Since they weren't married yet, and since Charlie is a REALLY good sport, he agreed to let Sharon dress him in any way she wanted to. If our mom had been here, she never would have let Charlie debase himself in this way, but since she wasn't......
Yup. He was the bride and Sharon was the groom. And even though Charlie is quite a handsome man, he really made a hideous woman. SOOOO funny.
We went around town and let Sharon and Charlie knock on all the doors. Watching the reactions on everyone's faces, just never got old. They'd do a happy "greet the trick-or-treaters" face, which immediately turned to a shocked, "what in the world!" when they saw Charlie face, which then turned into a "oh yeah, it's Halloween and that's just a man dressed up as a really ugly bride" face. Too rich.
We also had Molly - our oldest, adopted, child - who has been with us for Halloween for several years. She's always a character from Avatar: The Last Airbender. This year was Zuko? I think?
The younger kids were a Captain Jack Sparrow, a Japanese lady, and Wolverine - respectively.
Except when Luke spent a few minutes as a Wolverine-Bride. Bride of Wolverine? Hmmm.
We had a little pumpkin carvin', some trampoline jumpin', and a whole lot of fun.
I'm getting to where I'm liking Halloween more every year. Especially this one!
Well.. let's see now. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have been married for 13 years to my favorite man on the planet. I can't get over how cute he is, or how much he drives me crazy.
We have three beautiful and brilliant kids who make us laugh every day.
The abiding passion of my life has been horses. I have been blessed to work as a horse professional since 1988. I feel like my love of horses has been a God-given gift and is an instrument for learning and self development in all areas of my life. My study of Parelli Natural Horsemanship has made me a better person and a better parent, not to mention a better partner for my horses.
I live in a small town and love small town life and the good people who surround us here.
I love to develop and discover my talents and feel strongly that there is nothing I can't do if I set my mind to it. I LOVE photography and photoshop, and although I have a whole lot to learn in that area, I'm getting a little better all the time and really enjoy taking pictures of family and friends.
I live a very blessed life.
