Each year the church our family goes to has a masquerade party in May. The families in the church don't dress up for Halloween, so this is a nice alternative at a totally different time of year. The kids just love it and the all the families in the fellowship really get into it. Our girls and their families dress up from things they find at a thrift store or make-it can get expensive if you are buying costumes from a costume store.
On a side note, I can tell the warm weather is here because when I took Hunter out this morning for his morning potty, he came running back with ants on his face-lots; at first I thought they were just pieces of pollen or stickers. Ugh!!! This girl will take snakes over ants any day. I grabbed his grooming brush and ran outside and began brushing them off. Next I checked his paws and sure enough there were plenty. I long ago decided that when I get to glory I want to ask the Lord about His little insects-and why they have to invade our homes and yards so much-let them live out in the fields. I guess they are a bit like the other creatures bothering our area currently-bears coming down into suburbs looking for food and snakes searching out food because of the drought. We aren't bothered by either of these but seriously friends, I have no tolerance for ants. I'm the one who used to spray for them and now I'm concerned about our little guy-don't want any toxins on our lawn that could harm him. Things always happen when my hubby is away; this isn't too bad, just don't know what I'll do today about the problem. Maybe by later they will have gone underground; hey a girl can wish can't she?!
I hope you are enjoying the weather in your area; today we should hit the low 90's and Carrie and her kiddos plus Lily are coming over, so maybe there will be some water play. Hope you have a wonderful day, free of any pests.
Blessings, Noreen & Hunter
