The annual Pumpkin Festival has been going on since Wednesday. It will close today at 5. Doug brought his three kids and his girlfriend and her daughter to the parade. We watched it from a friends' front yard. Below are Melissa and the four kids lined up, waiting for candy.
Below are Mike's aunt and uncle, Dave and Jeanette Hissom, who were parade grand marshals. They do a lot before, during, and after with the festival and were given this title as a recognition of their time and effort.

There are rides of course.
Dillon and Peyton are shown here.
It was a fun time, though it was very hot and crowded. Doug's Addy and Melissa's Maddy are 7 and 8 and both redheads. We had several clashes of the redheads! They wanted to do things together, but would both get easily upset. I loss count of how many deep breaths my son had to take! Ha!
Maddy has never had to share Mama, and isn't thrilled about having to do so now. Melissa's mother is helping Maddy adapt to this new picture.
It was a good week. We had pictures taken for homecoming and all went well. I will post some of those later. We had them dress up and then we had them change to jeans, flannel shirts, and cowboy boots. We took them to a friend's field with two gorgeous tractors and bales of hay. Wonderful!
Hope you have a terrific week!
