It's That Time of Year

Grab your rake and come on! No need to dress up...just your jammies, a denim jacket and your Grandfather Poppy's hat.

No really, come on!

Let's help Poppy rake the yard...

OK Poppy let me show you how its done!

More like this...

Ok, one more time. Like THIS!

Nevermind Poppy, just give me your rake, I'll do it!

Whew! This is hard work!

I think it's time for a little rest.

Just for a minute...the supervisor is watching!

Come on everybody...lets do the Raking the Leaves Henry Dance!

When is the last time you had so much fun raking the leaves?

Driving Mr. Henry

We went to Madisonville last weekend for a little visit with our families and left Henry with my parents while Ed and I went to the UK game at Vandy. I found these pictures on my camera that were taken by my sister (Aunt Kake)...I don't know what the story is behind them, but I can only guess it went something like this...

Keys? Check.

Driving music? Temperature? Check, Check.

Mirrors set? Check!

OK! Now, tell me pretty lady, where would you like to go?

No problem...let me just grab my shades...

...wait, where did you say you want to go??

Are you sure about that???

I don't think they have toys...

...or heeees, I don't know....

OK pretty lady! Anything for you!!

The Blueberry Helmet

I think Henry's outfit for Halloween was completely cute and successful...but I had planned on one more part...a helmet. I spent the better part of Halloween day running around brainstorming on how to make a helmet. I ended up buying a big styrofoam ball, cut in in half, hallowed it out with a spoon, bought fabric to cover it, even covered a button in another color for the top and burnt my fingers on hot glue pretty good in the process...only to put the hat on his head for the final fitting and realized it just looked like a big juicy silly blueberry and not a fearless jockey's I scrapped it.

Luckily the next morning, Henry didn't let all my hard work go in vain....horses need to keep their noggins safe too don't they?

Happy Halloween!!

Henry's steeds waiting for his arrival.

The jockey approaches his stallion with a air of confidence.

The jockey greets his fans with a little wave and smile.

The noble horseman choosing the appropriate whip (although he rarely uses it, horses obey his every whim).

Spending some time talking strategy before the big race.

Giddy up!

Horsemen must always have proper "form".

Henry has had a total of 2 suckers in his entire life...yesterday he matched his record in one night! Hope YOUR Halloween was as successful!
