Goodbye, Goofballs

 It's been a pretty good year. Although they aren't as sweet and innocent as they were last August and I've given them all I could, I'm still sad to say goodbye to these crazy kiddoz.

 Sure, Miracle. Just do what you want and jump on into the teacher picture. That's cool.

Oh, they look so innocent....

 Action Shots! PE! Hooray!

 When I told Ron I was going to be "Sporty Girl" for Halloween, he promised me he'd be "Sporty Boy."

 Yep, I'm serious. This is for real. It's Mario.

 Jump Rope for Heart

 Even teachers get goofy.

"oh, there's no place like dum dee dee dum dum dum"

Once upon a time, I told my brother that a friend of mine in Mexico referred to him as "ojon", or in other words, one with the big eyes. Once upon a time happened to be right after we took this picture. So then he graced us with the next picture, by "trying to make (his) eyes smaller."

any other stocking would pale in comparison:

Bellevue Botanical Gardens on a rainy night. Die hard.

Weddings, Waves, and Tacos

Loved having an excuse to go back down to Mexico (and add a few days to my winter vacation): the wedding of my good friend, Karina. Here is the happy couple at Destiladeras, Nayarit.

Free Tickets to the Dickens Fair

Although we didn't see him until we left the building and headed for the parking lot, Scrooge was definitely in the house.

I don't know what I like more, the costume, or the look on that woman's face.

Ghost of Christmas past.

Tried roasted chestnuts. Pretty good--tasted more like potatoes to me. Once again, it's a toss-up: this guy's face or the roasted chestnuts.

One of these things is not like the others...

At one point I decided the name of the game was take as many pictures with as many characters as possible. Not as easy as you might think. This is, by the way, a pose.

As if there was any doubt, this is also a pose.

Freakin Awesome. The mask and the people in the mirror.
