My first Lolli-pop

Elsie had never had a lolli-pop until today, Halloween 2008. She has been intrigued by them for quite some time, but I have not allowed her to have one. Today, I caved and she LOVED it! She has had enough sugar today to last her at least a month!

Trick or Treat

two Tricks and a Treat!
Knocking on the doors is the best part!

The Parade Wave

This morning Elsie wore her Halloween costume to school and participated in their annual Parade of Costumes. It was the cutest thing you have ever seen! They also had a party at school for the children. The first thing I heard from her upon pick up from school was "Mummy, M&M's are sooooo yummy!"

Winds of Change

On the coldest day of the year so far (it was a chilly 56 degrees), we bundled up the babies and ventured out to do our civic duty....We voted! (FL is one of 31 states which has eary voting) I sincerely hope that everyone reading this makes his/her voice heard in this election. In spite of the CNN news reports, all was very well organized and went very smoothly. We only waited 1 hr from start to finish and we got our little sticker that says "I Voted!"

"Giddy Up"

A dear friend of mine and I share the same birthday. The new man in her life is her beautiful horse and we spent Saturday celebrating with her down on the farm! I am a city slicker myself, but Elsie LOVED the "real horsies."
