  • This Was Halloween

    My Halloween started out at school with glasses day- we decided to support a student’s new glasses by all wearing them. It was a fun way to not celebrate Halloween at school. *** My parents came over that evening to hand out trick or treats while we met up with a really fun neighborhood group […]

    Both of the kids ran their final cross country run yesterday for Northshore. The first five placers each get a pumpkin but we knew the turnout would be big and our chances of actually winning were slim, so Big Daddy promised Boy and Girl that any child who did not win a pumpkin would get […]

  • 40-eve

    I try not to wax on and on here at Littlejohnesque. The purpose here is to scrapbook virtually what I fail to do physically. I do most of my think-through, blather on and on about my feelings writing over at my Shazam blog… But today on the eve of turning 40, it seems appropriate to […]

    The checker at the store asked our always conversational little boy what his name was. He replied "Jude" then added "but sometimes they call me pumpkin brown". LOL.

A long time ago…
