My Halloween costume this year is a Majorette outfit that was my Moms when she was a little girl in grade school! She was part of a Baton Group that marched/performed in area parades.  My Grandma saved her retro gold outfit…(polyester, rick-rack and all!) We didn’t  have the original hat, but we added the cowboy hat and extra “bling” crown to give it sparkle! She made the boot tops out of foam  that I wore with white tennis shoes, and the tassels were made from purple yarn.  This picture was taken last night just before “Trunk-or-Treat” at our school.  We had a great time!…Oh, and my sister was Minnie Mouse….if you didn’t already guess….de-uh!! (she does make a cute Minnie!)

Happy Halloween Everyone!

On Wednesday, Unity Day, Sammy gathered a few friends to make “No Bully” type posters.  I explained to them about “Bully Prevention Month”  and the kids tied orange yarn around their wrists, which is the official awareness color.

The next day, the posters were hung around their school along with other posters that were made by students from St. Agnes.  William, shown to the far left was one of the younger kids helping out and he was still wearing his yarn bracelet…and he told me, “I’m never taking it off!” I asked it what it meant, and he continued, “It means, say no to Bullies!”
