Then to the trunk or treat!
For my costume, I just grabbed some random 70's garb I had. Someone asked me if I just had a costume hanging around at home when I mentioned I just threw some stuff on, and I answered, "Yes. I've got a bunch of costumes to choose from." Then I realized that not everyone is like that. That it's strange for me to have a costume box complete with wigs and a garment bag with things like an 80's sequin top or an orange polyester suit. Oh well. Mom's fault.
Here we've got a couple of the girliest girls you ever did see:
This is Tessa's cousin Simone. The two girls together = inseparable. It's really cute to see them love each other so much. I'm thinking that Gracie will be joining the cuzzie girl hug next go round.
The witches at Gardner's Village:
At my Mom and Duke's:
I think this a sweet picture of Cole meeting his Great Grandma:
Leaves, leaves, leaves.

I guess 7 years was its limit.
"Easy-push"? This is what I call irony, folks. You should have seen me trying to finish vacuuming today once the top of this bad boy busted off.
So, any recommendations on vacuums? If you say, "How about one with a handle?" I swear I'm coming after you."
Now I've just got a month of vacuuming hunched over or on my knees.

Here's the petting zoo:
A mama goat had barely given birth to some babies. No pictures. Birth is a messy business, you know. Still kinda cool to see.
Feeding the llamas and checking out the ostriches:
It's not an official trip to the state fair without a picture of Big Tex in his new Dickies outfit. Tessa didn't agree.
She was done. So were we after sharing our 10 dollar meal -a big corn dog and a drink. 10 bucks. Seriously. I mean, 20 tickets. Good thing we went to see the dog dancing. There's something about a dog dancing in sequins that makes my cheap self feel as though I'm getting my money's worth at the fair. ;)
Matitos for lunch. Mmmmmmm. Except, this is the place that had jalapenos in the pico. Not cool, Matitos. Tessa and I both experienced the flames. At least I could smear sour cream in her mouth. I was at a disadvantage with the whole no dairy diet.
We had a wonderful time and were so glad that he could come join us for a few days.
