My Little Monkeys

James Hyer is going to be a monkey for Halloween and is wearing the same costume that Matthew wore 3 years ago. I thought I would compare their pictures. Aren't they cute little monkeys??

Trunk or Treat

Our church had its "Trunk or Treat" tonight. All of the "trunks" had a biblical theme this year. It was really cute and we had a great turnout. Here are a few pictures.

My sweet niece Ann Carol. Her pig outfit was so adorable even though she refused to wear her ears. If you look closely you'll see the rainbow is falling on her as she is trying to pull a sucker!Sampson and Deliah (aka the Walcotts) They are telling the kids "their story". It was so cute.

Our friends Steff and Jason (who are sooo creative) won first place for their take on Moses parting the Red Sea. Matthew and his friend Britt are posing in front of it. Congrats - Matt is so jealous! HA

Here are Matt and Matthew in front of our Lions Den. Matt was disappointed in only winning 2nd place but you can't expect to win when you cheat and get a real designer to make it for you! Thanks to Matt Ortner for doing such a great job on it!

Our Youth Director won 3rd place for Noah's Ark. She and her husband were dressed for the part too. I'm not sure how I missed them in this picture.

Go Dogs!

James Hyer had just woken up and wasn't happy about taking puctures!
Matthew and Ann Lamar on the jumpy games.
James Hyer playing on the Lamb's cooler. (I never got a picture of him and Macy together.)
Ann Lamar and Bully. Matthew, of course, wouldn't go near him!! This was her first time to go to a ballgame. She had so much fun except at the game - she was ready to go after about 15 minutes - Uncle Matt was not happy!!

Picking Cotton

Matthew's preschool went out to my daddy's to pick cotton Friday. They had so much fun - although they liked jumping in the cotton trailer and playing on the tractor more than actually picking the cotton. Thanks, Daddy Ray!!
