Was it the dog in the living room with the revolver?
Was it the girl in the library with the candlestick?
Was it the boy in the kitchen with the rope? Your guess is as good as mine...

Parker was in a little musical at school the other night. It was called "Arf!", so the kids were all dressed up as dogs. We didn't have time to put together an elaborate costume, and he was very happy with his nose and ears.

He spent some time like this...

Post show (hair all dishevelled and nose askew)

Near the end of the show I noticed that he was wearing his pants completely backwards the whole time. I'm not kidding.

Exhibit A

Exhibit B

Fortunately, the wardrobe malfunction didn't interfere with the barking and howling. He did a great job!

Water for Elephants

I read Water for Elephants when Brian and I went to Savannah & Charleston. I loved it! Then Lisa & I saw the movie as soon as it came out. It was also very good!

Highly Recommended!

Cross Over Ceremony

Saturday, we went to Parker's Boy Scout Cross Over Ceremony. First, there was a dinner.

Then the boys received some new badges.

Then we went outside for the Cross Over. There was a beautiful rainbow while we waited.

He walked onto the bridge as a wolf, and walked off the other side as a bear. The dads put the new scarves on them.

Parker with some the the boys in his den.

Silly faces!

Look who else had to make a silly face...
