There's a Camera Lover in Every Crowd

I spent a few minutes in children's church today, taking pictures for the box they are sending overseas with Operation Christmas Child. They've decided they are going to bring toys for a little boy--cars and baseballs; marbles and lemon drops and maybe peppermints. . .and we're putting the pictures in to show what an adorable group we are. Check out the precocious little red-head in the middle, and you'll see why I call him Calvin.
(to his grandmom, if you are seeing this, relax. I'm sure it's just a phase)
Anyway, whatever it is, it is contagious...
(no, really, I prompted them on the last one)

Pumpkin Rolls

We spent eight hours Saturday making 75 pumpkin rolls for a senior fund raiser. It's a tradition at our school--seniors selling pumpkin rolls and chocolate rolls. My guess is that we will need to spend two more days like this to meet the popular demand...or at least one more--for the chocolate lovers.

My seniors were real troopers, though, working hard most of the day, only pausing a few times to congregate in the teachers' work room and watch the ends of a couple of football games.) Counting all the kids and all the adult sponsor/parents we had a dozen workers. Lots of fun...but exhausting as well.
