The life and times of those that live(or used to) at Starkey Hollow...Me with husband Larry....
Sons: Mike, wife Lori, children Bailey and Emma; Tim, wife Joni and son Cooper; Daughter: Chelsea and son Bryden
....has been very busy! Halloween festivities are going on but with varied weather, we were never sure what was happening. In our little town, Trick or Treat was on a sunny day with 84* temps. More folks than normal were out and it was fun to see everyone! We borrowed a "haunted house" from cousins Kathy & Jack and had a ball with all the little ones!
Even Scoobie got in the mood as a BEE!!
This haunted house is a masterpiece...look inside. It even has ghosts in the window and bats flying from the ceiling!
Most kids ran into the house first before getting treats! It was a great place to take kids pics for the night.
As it got dark, the house "lit up"...
Bryden, ummmm, Spiderman with his mother, came to visit.
And here are our newly engaged family members....a June wedding it will be for Chelsea & Whitney. Congrats you two!!!
This was one of my projects for the week...our Relay for Life had a bake sale this week as well as a "Quarter for a Cure" fundraiser which kept us all busy.
This was just some Grandma time with Bryden.
-and My sweet sister Lynn came to visit. She is the glue that holds us all together and I am always so grateful for her cheery visits!!
Friend Judi came too and we had a night of cards and fondue...yum! Nothing like fun to make you smile.
Then Friday night Tim surprised us with a visit from Cooper!! That boy can charm a snake! He charmed my wigs from me and he and Bryden looked like Beatles! lol.
Whenever there are Starkey men in the house...this takes place! There is always wrestling. Oh me.
Sorry Tim, but I just had to include this pick. I didn't even see it happen till I looked at the pictures in my camera. Then I just had to giggle. I think he got the best of you!!!
It was a wild pajama party and none of us got much sleep...but I had to yawn myself when after they left I found this little one had crawled into bed and was fast asleep with his beloved "tiger".
Today was church,...our "Relay for Life" event and then....a Halloween visit to Emma & Bailey's house to watch them Trick or Treat.
Lori had just gotten some portraits back from the photographer's. I love this one of the girls. Emma looks so old worldly to me.
And I told Mike & Lori that I think this one looks like it was taken 100 years ago in an English garden!
And then there is this one. I laughed SO hard at this!!!!
