This is our happy halloween. Gracey was our little kitty cat. Henk insisted on being this dragon even though the custom was too small for him. And yes that is Peter. His vampire costume turned out really well thanks to Debra's excellent face painting. Debra also did a number on Justin and me. I was a witch complete with the green face and giant long nose, Justin had his face painted like a pumpkin and his crazy hair painted green. I think dressing up for halloween makes it so much more fun.

Henk will turn 3 years old on December 29. He already wants to ride his bike without training wheels. This is one of his many attempts. After he peddled a few feet and crashed, he hopped off of his bike and said "okay, lets go to the jumps". Is it possible that he could be more of an adrenaline junky than Peter? Yikes.
Yes it has snowed. This is what dumped on us Saturday afternoon. Peter was so excited. This is the snowman he made all on his own. Of course it was demolished and he made about three more.
Gracey turned 4 months old on Saturday. She was born in a snow storm in June. I figure when she turns a year old, 9 of her 12 months of life will be in snow. Fun isn't it.

I have not been very good at keeping up with this thing. Here is the latest with us. Peter is now in kindergarten. He loves it. It has taken him a few weeks to get used to getting up in the morning, but he gotten a lot better. They go to "all day" kindergarten here which means they start school the same time as everybody else, but they get out an hour earlier. Peter loves lunch and recess. He has a great teacher and he seems to be doing well in class. He is on the "green light" everyday and he is so proud of that fact. (That means he hasn't got into trouble yet.)

Here are the big Wyoming Cowboys checking on their livestock. Peter rode his sheep for a mighty 4 second ride. He was cut short of the big belt buckle when his sheep took him head first into the rodeo fence. Henk was ready to go on his first sheep ride but when he was next in line he decided sheep riding was not what he thought it was. So they both returned their rodeo numbers and collected their Two Dollar Bills.
Today they had the Jr. Rodeo at the Lincoln County Fair. Peter & Henk were both signed up to mutton bust. Henk chickened out because his sheep was a little eager and left the shoot before he could even get on it. He didn't want to try another one. Peter hopped right on with his motorcycle helmet and his goggles. He had a wild sheep that ran him right into the gate. It was a good thing he had his helmet. Callin (Jake's little boy) was a little afraid but he he eventually hopped on. His sheep was like riding a tame little pony, it just wandered around and could care less that Callin was on him. There was one famous person attending today's rodeo. Spiderman made an appearance and even tried a little mutton busting of his own.
