Halloween Fun

Here is my baby who is no longer a baby. :( She wanted to be a nurse for Halloween but she looks more like a surgeon. My sister, who is a Medical Lab Tech, gave her the lab coat to complete her outfit. "Ms Thang" insists that she wants to be a nurse when she grows up. I think she would make a very good nurse. She tries to be so helpful and always wants to do a good job and please everybody. She just got her report card and is getting 2 awards...one for writing. This is a major accomplishment for her since writing is one of the hardest things for her. Being deaf makes it difficult for her because sign language is a little different than spoken English. It's hard for her to always get the words in the right order. She is in a self-contained class where she can work on each subject on the grade level that is appropriate for her and she is doing great.

This is "Ms Thang" and her friend "Critter" (Christopher) out Trick or Treating. "Critter" is the son of my best friend/knitting buddy/partner in crime, Froggie (Amy-lynne at Frogiez Place). They had so much fun walking around and getting candy. Froggie's neighborhood is a nice, friendly and safe one so we were able to Trick or Treat the old fashioned way. I so did not want to go into town and fight the awful crowds at all the big events going on. We just don't get any Trick or Treaters in our neighborhood since there aren't many small children, we're too far out in the country, and the houses are too far apart. Cows don't give out candy so nobody's interested. lol

The surgeon/nurse in action. I just thought this was a cool photo with the wild effect the lights made. You can also see the relective strip Froggie put on the kids' pumpkins. She also made sure they had the glow sticks so they would be visible to us and any cars that may pass by. She's a pretty smart Frog...lol
And, last but certainly not least...................

This is a photo of "Major Cuteness" after winning a costume contest. He took first place in the 0-3 year old group. Was Elvis ever this cute? Thank you, thank you very much.
This photo was taken by Nathan Gray of the Anderson Independent Mail. Yay Killian!!!!!!!!
