After deliberating in the dollar store for nearly 30 minutes on Tuesday, I finally decided what alternative candy treat I was going to pass out to trick-or-treaters on Halloween – assorted stickers for the younger crowd and natural cereal bars for the older crowd.

BEST SHOT MONDAY – HALLOWEEN EDITION I’m totally cheating this week and instead of selecting one picture for Best Shot Monday, I’m posting a a whole lot of them from our Halloween parade/trick-or-treating adventure on Saturday. What with a cute furry lion and a sweet sleepy zebra, it was impossible to choose just one to share. ;) My two jungle animals arriving at the parade: Cute and roaring lion: The kids and daddy (dressed as a park ranger) watching the marching band go by: Trick-or-treat: Julian decided he was going to get his nap in: Walking down Main Street after trick-or-treating: A tired out lionRead More →
