There's A New Sheriff In Town

A couple of my friends on Facebook  talked about making popcorn balls today...so I thought, "Hey, that would be fun!"  So I parked Eli in the kitchen with me....and cooked up a batch.
WHAT A HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE!
That stuff is HOT.  You should see the blister on my finger where I got burned!  Ouch!
I'm glad I didn't have little fingers wanting to help me out...because I'd hate for him to get hurt.  And to top it all off....I about pulled a filling out trying to eat one of the dang things....and it didn't really taste that great!
What a bummer.

...
Moving on.

My darling hubby was kind enough to wear this fabulous costume my friend Erin found for me at Goodwill.  He looked awesome......

....but his horse was having some issues!

So, off came the horse costume and we just had three cowboys!

Aahhh - much better...

Thanks Lon for being such a good sport!!!

--------------------------------------------------
We ended the day by carving a pumpkin.
(Eli was so tired, but I was trying to keep him up until 7:00 pm, in hopes that he'll sleep in until at least 5:00 am tomorrow....which will then be 4:00 am with the time change!!! UGH!
 - - - UPDATE:  Eli slept in until 6:10 (old time) today.  It felt wonderful! - - -


He really enjoyed playing with the guts!

Excuse my deer in the headlights look - but I just loved Eli's mouth in this picture:

And cue the bedtime music....Eli's ready for bed....

I hope everyone had a safe and Happy Halloween!!!

Too bad about the popcorn balls.

Eli definitely didnt' seem to be interested in being a horse:)

We tried keeping Charlie up late tonight--it was tough, though. Can't explain to little kids about daylight saving time.
