My big boy was in Kindergarten. He's the handsome one in the yellow shirt. This was his first school concert, just a few days after we moved here.
Tonight we made the rounds trick-or-treating through Geraldine. Just like we have for two previous Halloweens. (You can recap a little about our first Halloween in Geraldine by going here.) This is not one of those places that frowns on trick-or-treaters! No way! Folks here love to see the kiddos all dressed up and running amok all over town. Hired Man Jim was over at the V.F.W. hall serving hot cocoa and handing out treats like they have done for more years than he could remember for certain. We stopped in to Rusty's Bar and Café to chat with our friends and show off our costumes, then we hit the streets.
We were lucky this year, it wasn't snowing! Around here we choose our costumes by making sure we are able to fit winter coats, and snow boots under them. I spent quite a few Halloween nights trudging through snow when I was growing up over on the other side of the mountains....
There was a little magic in the air tonight. The good Lord gave us an amazing sunset. The sky looked as though it were on fire with it's gold, orange and purple lighting up the sky. Then a flock of eight whooping cranes swooped over head in formation. I had never seen more than one or two of the cranes in one place before! It was a very special sight. Someone shoulda told them they were going the wrong way though! They were on a path toward the northwest....
The boys had the time of there lives and momma enjoyed it too. Then we came home to our warm house, had a treat or two and then got them tucked into their beds. Now I'm off to bed as well.... tomorrow is another day in paradise,
Bye for now,
