Happy Halloween {2016 Edition}

Happy Halloween!
This year Lola is a pupcake!
There is a super cute head piece, but she looked so miserable in those pics, I couldn't even post them :-) As always, she is super thrilled to be in the costume for the 3 minutes I force her to wear it for a photo.

I got my Mom hooked on AMC's television show "Hell on Wheels" before it's 3rd season.  It's a western of sorts, but centered around the building of the transcontinental railroad.  Like all AMC shows, it's very well done. The series has finished now, and they have a temporary exhibit at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in OKC.  They have several of the character's costumes on display and lots of information about the building of the railroad.
