BLACK SQUIRREL NIGHT WINNERS!

We had a blast making our kids costumes for the annual Black Squirrel Night held downtown every year. Yes, we really do have black squirrels-the story is that years ago a circus came to town and some black squirrels escaped and have been here ever since. They really are cool lookin' squirrels. ANYWHO.... Here are the costumes & the 3 winners from youngest to oldest!


Baby Jett was an adorable dragon-this was a store bought costume!

Wyatt was OF COURSE our John Deere tractor-What is wrong with the judges??? He didn't win. Do you think it may have been his BLOOD CURDLING scream on stage? Anyway, we plan on using this costume for Jett again next year.


Our sweet Caty was Raggedy Ann-she won 3rd place WOO HOO!


Myah was a sweet Red Riding Hood! Not a prize winner this year.

Victoria won 1st prize as our gorgeous ballerina in a jewelery box with jewels and even a wind up key in back-GO TORI!!!! 2nd time 1st place BSN winner!

Brendan won 3rd place as Noah-he has been talking about his costume for a long time and was SO EXCITED to win-He is a 2nd time BSN prize winner!

As you can see this is a fun family activity that we all (except Brooke LOL) like to participate in-although it is stressful, it is well worth the memories made! Until next year-goodnight squirrels!

That would be WONDERFUL! I would love to learn all about your adoptions! After 3 really hard pregnancies (months of bedrest, preeclampsia, on top of many other problems..) and losing Liberty we feel that God is calling our family towards adoption! We don't know the first thing about it, but we feel it in our hearts :0) So I love hearing stories from others!

Hope you are having a good day! Take care and God bless!
