Halloween, Football, and Voting

On Halloween there was a harvest festival at the church annex. The harvest festival Bill and I had gone to up in Wasilla had been without costumes. But we found out shortly before the one here that most people, children and adults, dress up in non-scary costumes. We scrambled to find costumes and finally came up with some from our own clothes. Bill is a cowboy, of course. And the best thing I could come up with was getting my old nursing uniforms out and dressing up as a nurse (I have actually been missing my job a lot lately so this was a treat for me!).



Last year when the Finley's thought we were having a boy, they bought this pirate costume for our baby. It has been in my gift box since then. So when Marie needed a costume for the harvest festival, I knew just where to go. I know that traditionally girls are not pirates. But I must say that, for a girl, Marie makes a very good pirate.


Saturday rolled around, and there's no guess as to what we were doing in the Williams house - watching Georgia Football!!! Unfortunately, Georgia was doing so badly that it really wasn't much of a game. Marie thought so too. She got tired of watching them make mistake after mistake, so she just went to sleep.


Voting day was a family experience. Marie did fall asleep on the way there, but we went on anyway.



Even though Marie was asleep, I cast her ballot for her. She had told me previously who she wanted to vote for. I was sure to get her an 'I voted Today!' sticker for her to show everybody.
