Halloween 2010

I love Halloween! It’s so much fun to dress up…and then, there’s the candy! πŸ™‚

I actually managed to buy pumpkins early this year (instead of stealing from children and knocking over little old ladies on Devil’s Night to get some pumpkins).

I let my brother, who is my personal pumpkin carver (and who is WAY AWESOME at this), have free reign over this year’s theme. I ended up getting Freddy and Jason! Sweet! Look at them, aren’t they great?!

Lindsay and I celebrated the evening by meeting up with Erwin at a bar which was having a costume contest. I left before the judging, but Lindsay won 2nd place! πŸ™‚

Here’s Lindsay in her SuperGirl costume (This outfit is rated PG-13):

And this is one tough chick! Look! She’s not even afraid when confronted by PacMan…and he’s notorious for how much he eats! πŸ™‚

Everyone knows that superheroes congregate at bars, so when Captain America arrived, we knew it was time for a photo op! πŸ™‚ This is the two of them looking fierce:

And at the end of the night, Bo Peep went home to count her sheep — to make sure she hadn’t lost any….

Birmingham in October

Today was a beautiful day. Terry and I decided to take some pictures while we walked around Birmingham.

I loved the colors of the leaves on the trees!

Some of the neighbors had decorated for Halloween. Oddly enough, one had a little statue of me. They must have caught me on a day I didn’t go to Mass and hadn’t been to Starbucks yet. πŸ˜›

We walked over to the little park they had downtown. In the middle, there was this odd statue. I’m not sure what the significance of the sculpture is, but I like to call it, “Here, honey, I’m throwing you to the birds….”

And just look at all these cute kids in their Halloween costumes! πŸ™‚

My only question…
What IS this??!?

Everything I Need to Know in Life, I Learned from Noah’s Ark…

One: Don’t miss the boat
Two: Remember that we are all in the same boat
Three: Plan ahead. It wasn’t raining when Noah built the Ark
Four: Stay fit. When you’re 600 years old, someone may ask you do something really big
Five: Don’t listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done
Six: Build your future on high ground
Seven: For safety’s sake, travel in pairs
Eight: Speed isn’t always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs
Nine: When you’re stressed, float a while
Ten: Remember the Ark was built by amateurs, the Titanic by professionals
