Everyday Life: A brief story of a pumpkin, sheriff and the warden

Here's the thing about cowboy sheriffs [read: tired toddlers who have not had a nap on Halloween].

They don't always like following the laws of the land [read: smiling for photos and looking at the camera simultaneously, which is one of mommy's foremost laws of the land.]

Unless the warden threatens to lock them up for unlawful behavior [read: mommy refuses to take the toddler out for any more trick or treating until he takes one picture for Grandma's Halloween picture frame collage.]

Pumpkins on the other hand ...

they are captive audiences.


  1. Hahaha- I think holidays are the hardest days because the kids are so excited that they exhaust themselves and can't behave.

  2. Halloween can be fun and crazy at the same time! The boys look adorable. The baby is getting so big:) I've been warden around here these days too!

  3. Awww, what sweeties. And ummm I used the exact same tactic to get our pre-trick or treating photos ;) Great minds think alike! I hope you guys had a great time.... and that someone offered you wine and cider along your way!

  4. ooooh i want a pumpkin. i don't think i can handle an opinionated sheriff just yet!


There's nothing better than good conversation ... but not while talking to myself. Will you play a part in this discussion?

AND will you pretty please have your email linked to your account or leave it for me so I can respond?

Thanks for taking the time to make these thoughts into conversation.
