School Carnival

I tried to convince Zane that it wasn't a Halloween carnival, just a regular carnival, but he insisted on wearing the Zorro hat & black leather gloves (not shown).
"Mom, I need to look cool", with a roll of the eyes.

The hair spray paint booth was a huge hit.
Max's scalp is still blue.

The Pie-eating Contest.
I think Jake wins this every year.
We are so very proud.

This carnival is actually alot of work for Brian & I.
A couple years ago, we volunteered to help out with the silent auction part of it & somehow ended up being in charge of it!
Soooo... we get to harrass our friends & neighbors & local businesses to donate stuff for it and collect it & set it all up & everything.
Soooo... for the most part we're in the gym doing auction stuff & the kids are pretty much on their own. Gus got lost several times. I was lucky to get any pictures at all before it got too dark. Trying to make sure they all eat their nutritious Carnival dinner of pizza, pop & cookie, before they hit the cotton candy stand. Kids...some that weren't even mine....begging constantly for more tickets.........
What I'm getting at is that we were a little busy that night to notice that our precious Jake had bid on a kitten last minute & won it!

Someone had generously donated four 3-month-old kittens they couldn't get rid of.
Dude! We practically have a farm already!
Someone at the auction told me, "you just have 'sucker' written on your forehead".
