Parker’s favorite Halloween recipe.

There are two ingredients to this yummy recipe.  (1) Vampire teeth and (2) Vampire boogers.

Mix the vampire teeth and the boogers in a festive decorative bowl, or in our case, an old tupperware.

Once you’ve got it all mixed, you eat it by the handful.  If you like Payday candy bars, you’ll love it.  Enjoy!

Halloween preview.

I know it’s only the middle of September, but I’m always slammed with work in October, so anything that I can do today that will make my life a little easier a month from now is a big plus!  One way to get ahead was to buy the kids’ Halloween costumes a little early.  First up… Luke Skywalker.

Followed by the Evil Witch.  (For the record, I thought she was going to be a Good Witch, but somewhere between the front porch and the backyard, the Good Witch turned over to the dark side.)

Luke tried to fight the Evil Witch with his light saber.

 But Luke had a little trouble keeping his focus.

And he was ultimately defeated by the Evil Witch.

Poor Luke really never stood a chance.

Feeling pretty good about her sweet victory, the Evil Witch spent some time admiring her shadow on the side of the house.  I’m sure you’ll see more of these two on Halloween night!

Grease on a stick.

Saturday morning… it was supposed to be overcast and rainy and dreary outside so I called my clients last night and rescheduled my photo sessions.  Does it look overcast and rainy and dreary to you?  Darn that weatherman.  Oh well.  Since I had the morning off, it seemed like a good idea to take the kids to the State Fair.

If my photography business ever goes south, maybe I can join the carnival and get a job with Frank.

Dave and I have one child who is a thrill-seeker and loves adventure.  And then we have Parker.  At least he is patient enough to sit in the hot sun while his sister enjoys the tilt-a-whirl.

We did force him to go on the carousel (the lamest ride in the whole park).  The walk up to the gate made him a nervous wreck.

One kid having a great time.  One kid freaking out.

And a forced smile at the end…

To top it off, we chased down our corn dogs and lemonade with ice cream and big plate of fried dough.  We left the fairgrounds with sticky fingers, sweaty clothes, empty wallets, and nauseated stomachs.  I would call that a successful morning!
