Halloween Outfits Through The Years

I am so like a kid at Halloween!
I love Halloween!
And even more
I love to dress up
for Halloween!
 
Years and years ago my friend Julie's mom had
a Halloween Party.
I went as Dolly!
I really should have been a bit
heavier with the makeup.
I love Dolly too.
 
 
Then my friend Barb and I had a Halloween
party when the kids were young.
I went all Witchy that year!

 
Working for the state of Tennessee in
printing
(see the state seal?)
I was a gyspy.

 
Also once with the State (sitll in printing) I became
all Witchy again!

 
But my favorite outfit has always
been a clown.

 
Still with the state (my whole life),
But no longer with Printing,
with the TBI in Medicaid
Fruad.
 
Back to the standard outfit.
 
 
And yet...another year with Medicaid.
 
 


 
Then last year in another unit with
The TBI...
the group was from the Menion
Movie.
 
 
Yes, that is me in the pink shirt!
 
This year....
I will be dressing up for my last year
as a state of Tn employee.
I have put in 32 years so now
it is time (I think it is anyway)
to move on.
 
I will actually be dressing on Halloween,
a Friday and coming to work in
one outfit but
the next day I will
be attending a party
and I will be dressing in another
outfit....
Will post pics later.
 
Thanks for stopping in,

Adorable Photo Shoot - Kelley's Grandkids at Pumpkin Hill

Kelley, my hairstylist hired me
to photograph her
grandchildren at Pumpkin
Hill outside of Nashville.
 
I had so much fun. I have never
photographed four children under
the age of four before and
did not really know how well they
would do..
they were GREAT!
 
This is Cannon on the left, Harley in the
middle and Kyler on the right.
Yes, Kyler was a mess...I loved it.
 

 
Kyler on the tractor!

 
The woman is Kyler and Harley's mom.
The man is Cannon's dad.
They are a couple
and that is their children.

 
The blonde girl added to this
pic is Kylee.

 
Brother and sis.








 
Bad to the ham again!

 
I asked them to give me a funny face!









 
Kelley in the center and her two daughters.

 
Daughter and her boyfriend.

 
Kelley and hubby.

 
We took pics and then took a ride
on a hayride.
On the way back to the barn it
was feeding time for the cows.
A truck was headed out to feed them and
they knew where they needed to be.
 
 
Except this one. He moved off away from the group
and started following the back on the
trailer we were on.
 
LOL
 

 
It was a nice day. I had a blast with Kelley
and her family. The kids were great.
I also wish to add that while in the process
of getting of the trailer floor to get off
little Ms. Harley came and grabbed my arm
and said, "I will help you up"!
Sweet!
 
Thanks for stopping in,

This, That and the Other

Over the last couple of months,
Chris's flag has been taking a beating.
 
 
He was wanting to replace it but
the ones he found all said they
were made in China.
So.....
 
But I found one at Dollar General
for $10.00
made in the USA!

 
One of the sweetest friends on FB
wanted my address, she had a small
clown she wanted to send me since
I love clowns.
When I got home Thursday I had
a box waiting on me and here
is what was in it.
Not one, but three.
Thanks Mikie!

 
Mom had a yard sale this weekend.
I went over Sat. to work it with her and I
am learning that yard sales are almost
a thing of the past...
but as I worked the sale I walked around the
garage between people coming and I
found this stored away!
LOL
Handmade ashtray that I made in
high school, 11th grade in art!
To funny, have not thought of this
in yrs.
Made it 37 years ago..

 
yep, mom said take it with you and
I did!
 
Hanging at Chris' Sunday and I happened
to look out the back door to see that
Clover (born 3/17/2014)
was out of the fence.
I went out and checked
the gates and they were all
closed and locked off....
 
Guess she decided the grass on
the other side of the fence was
greener..
so she jumped the fence!
 
She was chowing down on that
fresh green grass.

 
I sat down outside and just let her
nibble around for a bit.
Dakota, my dog was curled up
in the chair next to me and
Leonard just decided
to take a nap...
right at my feet like a large dog
would do!

 
So funny.

Girls Painting Night

I know that you all have heard of
the studios that do the one night
paintings....
We have Sips and Strokes
Wine and Whimys
and others...
 
Last year a couple of friends and I
went to Wine and Whimy to
paint these
WITCHES for
Halloween.
 

 
 
They turned out great.
Well Theresa and Debbie
wanted to continue to paint some.
I had Theresa to the house once to
TEACH
her to paint....
A teacher I am not.
But she did really well.
And we stopped!
 
Last night we decided to do it
again.
 
Debbie and Theresa came
to the house.
We ordered pizza,
had a couple sips of wine
and they painted.
 
Theresa's start to her painting.
 
Debbie is really moving on with hers.


 
Working hard.

 
Check out what Theresa did.
Looks so much cooler
than it did on the paper.
Great job T!

 
With a little help from me Debbie
was able to finish hers.
This was probably more of a painting
than she needed to start with but
she pulled it off and
did a great job.

 
We talked, we decided that we would
do this once a month. This morning I
have been looking for Thanksgiving
things for them to paint for next month.
 
Next time I might just join in and
paint with them.
