Double, double, toil and trouble
Fires burn and caldrons bubble
Calling all witches, ugly ones the most
We will be your host
Meet at Sol Rio for plenty to eat
And later we will have a trick or treat
Be there by six-thirty and meet your fate
Wear your witch costume and don't be late
Friday, October 26th at 6:30p.m.
at Sol Rio

Don't be a creep!

This was the invitation that we took to everyone in our neighboorhood. We ended up having about 20 witches come. It was so fun. Sol Rio was pretty busy so we had alot of people looking at us and coming to talk to us, they had their kids come say hi to us it was cute. We ate and had door prizes and then we had a big prize for the witch that had the best cackle it was pretty funny! We have done this for 3 years now and it is so much fun!! I was able to get a few pictures before my camera battery died, I was so stinkin mad.

I was able to get a few more picture from my friend so here they are.

Halloween Fun....

I love this time of year cooler weather, changing colors, pumpkin candle burning, fall decorations and most of all HALLOWEEN!! I come from a family that just loves halloween and we have been busy with all the halloween fun.

Monday night we were invited to a family halloween party with some friends. We ate chilli, bobbed for apples, made some cute crafts, and had a pinata. It was really fun and our kids had a blast. Of course I forgot my camera.

Tuesday night we had Brian's family over and ate pizza and carved pumpkins. McKenzee couldn't be there because she had dance but, Brooklyn and Ty had fun. They dug right in and got all the guts out .(as Brooklyn would put it)

They made some really cute faces on them, Ty liked to use the poky thing that came with the pumpkin carving kit that we got. Brooklyn wanted me to help her with a scary guy face that we found in the book it turned out pretty cool!

Wednesday night Brian and McKenzee had Pumpkins with Papa for achievement days. So McKenzee didn't feel to bad that she missed our pumpkin carving. Brian said they had tons of fun and he was so glad that he got to spend some quality time with McKenzee. They ate sloppy joes, played the cake walk game but with candy bars, they decorated a sugar cookie, and then they decorated their pumpkins. Mckenzee's pumpkin turned out really cute.

Friday night is our annual Witche's Night out so I am excited about that. I have been busy getting prizes and things ready so stay tuned for some pictures of that and also our Sakota Family halloween party is on Saturday. I have been sewing our costumes and boy are they a hoot!

busy weekened.......
I can't believe another weekend has come and gone, it seems like they go by so fast. We had a great weekend filled with lots of fun. Brian has fridays off which is so great we get to spend the day together doing whatever.It is so great. I am on the PTO board at our school and I am in charge of teacher appreciation. I do something for them once a month and so on friday I took different kinds of breads (oatmeal, banana, pumpkin, and poppy seed muffins) and juice. I found cute halloween plates and cups at the dollar store and decorated the table. I also made a cute sign that said, For never "loafing" on the job and no matter how you "slice" it you are terrific teachers. I wish I would have taken a picture but I totally forgot.

On saturday Brooklyn had a soccer game and then Karri and I took our kids to the harvest fest at freeman park.

Our kids thought it was great and it was something fun to do. They had some fun games for them, good food, live entertainment which was good, and they loved the face painting. And again I didnt take my camera. Later that night I went to Thriller with one of my friends. It was awesome!

It was very entertaining and the dancers were amazing. I had never heard of it but, my friend said she saw it in Utah and thought it was awesome. It was way cool.

Then today it was my turn to teach, the lesson was on Hold fast to the Lord's standards. I wanted to do something a little different since I teach the Laurels and they hear what the lesson was about so much (which is so needed) that I wanted to put a little fun into it so we played Jeopardy and all the questions came out of For the Strength of Youth. It turned out to be a great lesson.
