We went to the Salvation Army last week. We spent $11 and we all got costumes plus a few records and a pyramid. We really enjoyed ourselves there. We felt so welcome. The employees were amazing and the customers actually smiled at the excitement my children beamed. Here are a few sneak peaks at costumes....
Can you guess who is who? Hint: Roman didn't pose.
We finally got around to finding out what sort of plant this beauty was that Gino found at Red Rock. We had taken a photo and decided to leave it without picking it, even though Gino really really wanted to. Well, after a few minutes, Gino came up flower in hand. Come to find out, it's deadly poisonous! AHHH! It's called Jimson Weed and is one of the desert's most toxic plants. Gabriel later tore it to pieces. Fortunately nothing happened to either of them. Yikes! Some research...."The lives of many children and adults have been lost after its leaves, stems, or fruits have been ingested. It is a powerful hallucinogen that was used for centuries by Indian religious leaders, known as shamans, skilled in it's preparation. All parts of the plant contain the chemicals responsible for toxicity and hallucinogenic effects. (Be warned- modern day experimenters risk their lives by swallowing any part of this deadly plant.)" From How Indians Used Desert Plants by James W. Cornett.
"At Loch Ness a group of childen tell they have seen Nessie the monster. The group of children were in a camping near Loch Ness. During the night a little boy awoke with a noise. He saw Nessie cating their sandwiches. When Nessi finished eating the sandwiches entered in the Loch and dissapeared."
