~The Cutest Buzz Light Year~ This is my son Brody...He is 2 1/2 years old and this was his first year actually Trick Or Treating...We had the best time Trick ~or~ Treating...I actually thought it was going to be extremely hard, but he was such a good and brave little boy! His dad stayed home and passed out candy while him and I went around to the houses in the neighborhood...What a good Halloween we had. I can't for the many years to come!

Josh and I a couple of years ago...Before we had our son Brody. I can't forget the best DOG ever...Chase!
~Country Christmas Soap Dispenser~ I got the Jar from a resale shop and the Dispenser from a Soft Soap bottle that was empty...I drilled a whole in the top of it glued the lid to the ring....for easy opening. It has been tied with a red and green plaid bow and a rusty snowflake. It stands about 5 inches tall without the pump. Great addition for the holidays. Click HERE to view it in my Ebay auction.
