I was a male cheerleader..

Well Joey was!  Joey tried out for the school mascot this year.  But, the school decided not to invest in a mascot outfit (most likely because no one else would be able to wear it), so he was asked to be on the cheer squad.  He enjoyed getting the crowd excited.  He also enjoyed hanging out with the girls.  He liked that the most I think.

Here's a picture of Joey with the squad at a game..

And here he is with his trophy and medal for Most Valuable Player!!  Yeah Joe for doing the unexpected!

I like to participate in the Fruit and Veggie Co-op. Around the holidays they like to offer decorate your own sugar cookies. I like these alot. First, I don't have to bake. Less mess equals happy me. Second they taste great! Joey decided he was too big to help decorate, so the girls had a great time.

Here's a couple shots of our Halloween cookies!

Most wonderful time of the year

For those of you that don't know, our family is big on Halloween.  We talk about it all year.  Our home always has some sort of skull or 6 foot zombie cowboy hanging around.  I have several pictures that I gleaned from others Facebook accounts and from my phone because Sophie has done something with my camera.  As you know she is the queen of taking my camera.  I also found that I don't have any pictures of Joey this year.  He was a Ghostbuster.  He looked great...trust me.

First picture is everyone at my mom's house for Trick or Treating.  Abby is the Queen of Hearts (Trunk or Treat winner for Best Kid's Costume!) I modified a vampire dress with hearts and tulle, since the store bought Queen costumes were a bit skanky.  Sophie is Alice (at the Trunk or treat she had a blonde wig, it was cute but annoying for her).  Emmalee is a panda, Cate is a cow.  Harley is the Cheshire Cat.  Johnathen is Harry Potter and I'm Bellatrix Lestrange.

Loving my kitty

My 90lbs lighter hottie!  He's the Angel of Death.
