Way overdue blog post

Seriously, 3 weeks? It's been 3 weeks since I blogged. I promised myself I would blog more often than that. So much for promises to one's self!

There is lots to catch up on.
First up... Halloween

Thomas's teacher this year is the marvelous Mr. Kiekhaefer. I can hear you asking, "Oh Brenda, what makes the man so marvelous?" Well, he is brave. Brave enough to greet a room full of 8-turning-9-year-olds every day. Brave enough to BBQ a hot dog lunch as a class reward. Brave enough to have a pumpkin carving party IN his classroom. Yes, with sharp objects and parents and everything.

"No Dad, I can carry it myself"

Get the guts out

Principal Mrs. Cook (who is not really at all like a witch), Mr. Pumpkin, Thomas
Some nice (and really talented) mom baked these little darlings up for the party. She wins the "Creative Cookie Award" for sure. Who knew Martha Stewart was a class parent?

Can you see Thomas, right in the center. Dang, he's cute!
 Now for Halloween itself... Gangster, OB1 and SomeOtherGuyFromAnotherCloneWarsStory (aka: Thomas, Garret and Justin). Can you say, "LOTSA CANDY"?

Stay tuned, there's more blogging to be done over the weekend!


  1. I love it when I read about a school that still lets kids be kids and enjoy our holidays with out worrying about being "PC". I was so happy to move out to the county (from Bellingham) for that very reason! My kids now have their holidays back, including Christmas!
