Pumpkins, Pirates and Pork Chops, Oh My!
There is nothing in this blog about pork chops, but I didn't have another 'P' word. Sooo there's that...
Then I suddenly realized I better post Halloween photos before I find myself at Thanksgiving dinner!
Finn was very helpful in the design of each pumpkin face. Touching the 'pumpkin guts' - not so much.
Finnegan's school had the kids wear their costumes to school that day. He had to wear a 'partial' costume - you'll see why soon. So Finn, the pirate, looked adorable of course.
Then later that afternoon Mom and Dad picked him up and the fun began.
Captain Hook seems unaffected by the fact that he is being eaten by a crocodile.
When the back view is as cute as the front.
After relocating by car, the costume was recreated. Because, well..... crocodiles don't ride well in car seats.
I need to add that Mommy made this whole costume - without a pattern. Amazing.
Chillin' with his croc buddy after a long evening.
For the winter, I am going to run - for fun. No training until spring. Therefore, I can do a lot more on the trails which I really love.
I so wanted to plant a little gnome in this tree.
We have been having amazing weather here. Indian summer, maybe? As I was hiking to catch Durango, this was the view.
Finn and I had to drive to Corvallis one day. He entertained me by singing all the usual songs (ABCs, twinkle twinkle, etc.). But he also sang his own lyrics. There were songs about trees and cars and fire hydrants. There was a song about 3 bags of wool. One for my Nana, one for my Mommy........
I've been feeding the local birds. Here they are waiting in line for the doors to open.
During a run along the beach, I just had to stop. Cool, huh?
And now it's time to start a new week and new month. Make it the best.
One step at a time,
