White Trash is in the air...

Fall is my favorite time of year. Well...no actually Christmas is my very favorite time but fall kind of leads up to Christmas so it's almost as good because the anticipation of anything is usually better than what you've actually been waiting for...except when it's a baby and in that case the outcome is WAY WAY better than the waiting...


I think the word I'm looking for is ANYWAY...so I love fall! The weather is perfect, the air smells different, there are festivals and extravaganzas and caramel apples and bon fires and you know you're getting close to the holidays and OH MY GOSH it's just awesome!


Fall just makes you want to get outside! You want to do things like play football and rake leaves and drink hot chocolate on the porch...and apparently it makes some people want to shoot snakes...

I went over to trudy and ricky's house and this is what met me in the yard:

-trudy, ricky, gretchen and josh were huddled in a group inspecting something...it turned out it was gun...

-they had backed their truck up and were using the tail gate to hold beverages and bug spray...

-also the truck radio was playing...not just any station but a NASCAR RACE...

-they were target shooting in preparation for shooting snakes...something I recently found out my aunt is talented enough to do without leaving her porch...

-after careful deliberation it was decided that the target wasn't visible enough so trudy went and retrieved a huge piece of neon yellow poster board that had a large "YARD SALE" written on it that was left over from their latest selling endeavor...

-they then proceeded to shoot at the YARD SALE sign...

So to recap, truck radio, nascar race, target shooting...for snakes...with a YARD SALE sign...

I love fall!
