Yes, the scarecrow and wicked witch were there, too.

We talked about dressing up Ace as a flying monkey, but it became unwieldy for trick-or-treating…

Went to a barn dance in October in our town.  Yes, that’s a real mechanical bull.  And Sophie rocked it.

Sophie’s birthday party was at a local park.  She had lots of friends and a fun western theme.  The kids planted succulents as party favors.  Yes, a pinata, too.

She decided to forgo gifts in lieu of donations to our local humane society….  Her idea and I couldn’t have been prouder.

A favorite tradition in our neck of the woods.  And we got to see live music performed by our neighbor Alec Lytle, too boot!
