Shane was a Red Ninja. The cute little girl in the Dorothy costume (picture below) is one of the girls in my Primary class at church. It was fun to have all the kids that know me call out, "Hi Sister Jackson!" Even kids that aren't in my class were saying hello.
(And I saw my celebrity crush again! His kids go to the same school as Shane. How cool is that???)
There were lots of parents in costume at the parade. I didn't do my hair, and I stuck a hat on my head (like that's gonna help). So I guess my costume was frumpy housewife. I was gonna post a picture...but I'm just not that brave!
After the parade, I rushed home to fix my hair so I could meet a friend for lunch. We've been trying to get together for months...We had a great time. :) We visited for 3 hours!!! Could have gone much longer, but my kids were locked out of the house so I eventually had to go home. Although Shane was resourceful and found a way to get in the house. Little stinker! He pulled the screen off a window, and slid the window open and crawled through.
Hopefully we can get together more often...and next time I'll make sure the kids can get in the house!
In the wee hours of the morning on Saturday, I drove down to meet up with these wonderful friends for our
Second Annual Halloween Breakfast Meet & Eat!
This year, we all wore our Pajamas, and promised to come looking like we had just staggered out of bed. Uh...some of us look much better first thing in the morning than others!
Unbeknownst to us, we had picked a male dominated restaurant.
Felt like we had invaded a "Gentlemen Only Club"
(by Gentlemen I mean truck drivers, construction workers, hunters and farmers, not that they aren't gentlemen, I just don't want you to have the vision of us surrounded by men sitting around in lounging jackets and smoking pipes! There was a lot of plaid flannel, maybe a rifle and a pitchfork or two.)
Oh well, we had fun anyway!

Make sure you read Connie's funny, witty write up: Invasion.
I think she already has her eye on a spot for next year!
