Trunk or Treat Take 3

We sure did get our fill of Trunk or Treating this year!! After TT2 we headed over to our friends, The Hydes church to visit and play with them.  Their Trunk or Treat was huge with all kinds of carnival rides, games and inflatables.  I stood in line a LONG time while they ran to and from inflatables so that they could each get a turn on the bungee jump. It was so funny the whole line was full of parents holding a space for their kiddos.  One of their favorites was crawling through the inflatable whale like Jonah and the whale! They had a great fun but by the time we left we were all chilled to the bone and ready for some hot soup and cider!

Mary’s 8th Birthday!

Every Monday night is Dairy Queen night and has been for 2 years now. There have been several employees come and go including the wonderful manager, Mr. Carl, but two special DQ ladies are still there and look forward to seeing our family as much as we enjoy seeing them.  Mrs. Mary and our Mary have a special relationship sharing the same name. Many times she is already putting in our order even before we get up to the register, she knows us that well!  Mrs. Mary is also a lunch lady at the High School so Elijah gets to see her everyday. All the kids make a point to give some love and hugs to Mrs. Mary on Monday night.  Mrs. Esther is on the ice cream line making all the cones, Blizzards, milk shakes,etc. and from time to time there are “mistakes, misorders” that happen where we get the larger size of what we ordered or an extra of something because it would otherwise be thrown away!  Mrs. Esther is a very sweet lady to us and we enjoy loving on her as well.  Trey usually smokes brisket on certain Holidays and does extra to take up to Mrs. Esther and Mrs. Mary.  We are blessed to have them as our extended family here in AL.  We celebrated Mary’s 8th Birthday at DQ with our DQ family along with the Millers, Woods and Hydes Family and 3 other neighborhood friends. Mary loved it and she was blessed with many presents and cash!! She declared, “I’m Rich!!!” and we all agreed. Happy 8th Birthday sweet girl!!!!

The Brothers put their money together to buy Mary her very own PINK rifle!
