Cade's school had it's Halloween parade and trunk or treat yesterday. There were some great costumes. There were a few other ladybugs, but only one Ash Ketchum!

The costumes

Remeber those random photos? Yes, Jaime, they're the kids costumes. Lydia is obviously the ladybug. Cade's costume needs "some 'splainin'". He's Ash Ketchum, pokemon trainer from the kids anime cartoon Pokemon.

Holy Hairdo!

Yes, that's 2.75" of hair all over his head.

This is what it looks like right after a shower with all of the product we use to shellac his hair down washed away. My bangs in the 80's have nothing on these bad boys. Although, I had to go through tons of Aqua Net, Rave, Aussie Hair spray, Suave or any combination of those to get that look!

No, I'm not neglecting my son's hair. This "do" was all his idea. So I figured, he's a pretty good kid, stays out of trouble, does what he supposed to, why not? He's growing it out as part of his Halloween costume. I've had to trim around the ears and at the collar to keep within the school's dress code. I keep waiting for a note to come home telling me he's in violation. Tomorrow is his last day of school before Halloween and there was no note today. So come Saturday, Nov. 1, he's losing most of it. Might keep it long on the top so it doesn't stick straight up. We'll see.

I knew I had seen this before!

Looking at some photos of Cade when he was a baby, I came across this one and stopped dead in my tracks. They were taken when they were both about 10 months old. Could a brother and sister look any more alike? I see it everyday, but I always think I see it because I expect to. The hair, the eyes and eybrows, even the way their pinkies curl up in this photo are almost identical.

Cub Scout Picnic

Cade and fellow scout Riley

Cade joined Cub Scouts this year and he had a picnic tonight. The meal was quite the eclectic array of foods: shrimpy rice (an interesting attempt at shrimp fried rice), hot dogs without any condiments, tortilla chips and "fancy" dips most kids turn their noses up at (spinach-artichoke, cheddar bacon and sour cream, spinach and jalapeno), tortilla roll ups and puppy chow. Mmm-mmm. Tums, here I come...

Seemingly random pictures

But you'll soon see what they're all about.
