Happy Halloween!!

Happy Halloween everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend full of entertainment and whatnot. It was straight up gorgeous here - with rife opportunity for getting out and about for a little fun. Obviously with pictures. And masks. Naturally.

Charlie was perhaps not as enthusiastic as one might wish, when trying to create graceful and elegant fall pictures. lol

In fact, homeboy was basically incredulous that we could be standing atop so much green grass, and yet I wouldn't let him eat it!! Horrifying indeed!!

Big horse seems to always find a way tho lol. 

EXCEPT. Apparently in the eerie light of a full moon, his tastes shift toward something a little.... spoooooookier. Charlie wants braaaaiiinsssss lol.

Or cannibalizing finger puppets. Haha. Either will do, really. 

"HALP I IS BEING EATED!!!"

*****


lol in all seriousness tho, hope everyone had a great weekend and a great close to October. Which means: You guessed it, a close to the 2016 Two Point Challenge!!

Get your final longest times in by tonight at midnight pacific - no ifs ands or buts! Winners will be announced on Wednesday!

I do not yet have Week 4 times for;

  2. Haha! Great pics of Charlie. I went to ride last night and pony came in with 4, read that FOUR fat legs. Whomp, whomp. No new two point was obtained to close out the day. Am going to try again tonight, since it says midnight maybe you mean tonight instead of last night haha! Stupid broken ponies.

  7. Charlie better get with the program, we require well-posed and sometimes dressed up pictures around here. Not bad for his first attempt though :0)
    I got a 2-point time yesterday: 3:25. Boo-ya 2 seconds improvement!

  8. That mask is amazing! I rolled my ankle a few days ago and two point seems to make it really angry :( I'm going to try tonight but if it hurts to much I will just settle for my 5:50 time :'(

  10. Charlie does NOT look overly thrilled with your costume. Maybe go with the jockey option next year? :D

    1. lol i'm not sure that would tickle his fancy either... maybe something slower and more sedate? a snail, perhaps?!? lol

      that reminds me tho, i *DO* have a pic of a horse (who happens to be isabel's cousin, actually) dressed up as a race horse with a teensy kiddo as the jockey. too freaking cute, must post!

    1. lol thanks! if there's one thing you can be guaranteed to find around these parts, it's an overabundance of somewhat silly pics lol

  12. Charlie looks perhaps a bit embarrassed. Too regal a beast for such shenanigans.

    1. much too regal, he has other much more important matters to attend to - like dragging me every which way to get all the best grass lol

  13. its the same, I haven't ridden since last time

  14. I love the finger puppet!
    My final time is 5:32

  15. I love the photos with the puppets/mask! Makes me giggle every time. My final time is 3 minutes. I feel like there needs to be a prize for those of us that did or almost fell off while trying to time... :)

    1. lolz sometimes i'm like a child :)

      congrats on the final time! and 2ptober is its own prize right? the practice practically pays for itself when we DON'T in fact fall off in the process lol

    1. i know right?!? we clearly need to learn from that masters haha :D

    1. i'm super eager for results too - bc honest to god, even looking over the master spreadsheet right now, it's not clear who will win what. there's still a few folks out there who need to get times in....

      but also. is it weird to say that i'm a bit disappointed to note that my grandiose plans for publicly calling out the non-participatory participants has basically come to ruins? they all got in new and improved times! le sigh. well. *almost* all of them, that is. muahaha.

  18. Final time is 18:21. Not a winner.. but not too shabby either!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Not too exciting for me, going on vacation the last week wasn't super helpful for improving my time! 7:38 for me.

  20. Lol I think it is safe to say that majestic pictures were out of the question when the horse mask came out

  21. OMG, that first picture has me ROLLING!!

  22. This is not on subject, but every time I read your blog now the Charles in Charge song gets stuck in my head. (palm to face)
