Things That Go BUMP in the Night....

Like a few of the Halloween decorations I put up Sunday getting toppled over by the evening winds!! Enough to get me out of bed and check out those noises coming from outside on my porch. Course my pooches didn't budge - some watch dogs those two are. Alas, no damage to any decor, but I need to figure out a better way to keep things PUT!!!

Picked up a couple more new Halloween decorations to add to the display today and finalized the kiddies' costumes!!! Abbey, my oldest, is going to be a DIVA Pirate now, not a DIVA Vampire (let's hope she doesn't change her mind again!!!!); Zachary is going to be Captain Jack Sparrow, of course with a little urging from MOM, though he is pretty excited about it too now that we have the complete costume ensemble; and Isabelle is going to be a Pretty Princess Witch (we had to throw the Princess part in there!!)

Hubby and I have a costume party to go to also, though I never need a reason to dress up for Halloween. Think hubby is going to be Captain Jack Sparrow too with a little urging from me of course. See I have this thing about Johnny Depp, like many of us females do. I LOVE Johnny's Captain Jack character especially, and well, WHY NOT have hubby dress up like him too!!! I can pretend....

ARGGGHHH - nothing like being kicked off your blog so hubby can check his fantasy football scores - too lazy to get his laptop out and check!!!! Ok - think sooothing thoughts; or better yet, back to thoughts of Johnny Depp.....

OK, I digress. Back to blogging.

Nov. 4th is Lafferty's big date. Lafferty is my yellow lab and I have been taking him to Therapy Dog Training. Nov. 4th is his test date, to see if he gets certified. I am very confident he will pass with flying colors, still I get nervous (if anyone messes up, it would be ME, not Lafferty!!!). Lafferty was in the Guide Dog Program for the Blind, but was career changed due to a health condition. We were fortunate to get him and he has been the best dog I have ever owned. I really want to be able to share him with others. I feel so blessed to have him. I love our other chocolate lab Gulliver a lot too, but Lafferty is just special. Everyone that meets him senses this. They are struck my his calm manner and always claim it must be his age; he is seven now. I am always quick to tell them he has had the same calm, sweet manner about him since the day we brought him home when he was only a year and a half old.
Lafferty in his puppy days!! Soooo Cute!! And Laffery Now....

And IN DISGUISE!!!!
