BOO!! What a Scary Bunch!

From the school to the rink there were some spooky and funny and just plain crazy costumes. I walked through the hall to Joe’s party I met many kids who wanted to show off their costumes.

At the Halloween Skate/Dodge Noah volunteered to scare people with his chainsaw…without the blade, of course. Too bad that his costume got caught up in his chainsaw and he didn’t get to scare anyone.

Many trick or treaters stopped by the skating rink for a treat. The skaters were having a good time, too

We Partied Like Dillon & Tyler & AJ would have wanted us to!

The memory party Saturday night was a blast! We cried a little but laughed a whole lot more. There was skating and games and lots of food! And there was Dodge Ball. It was a blast!!

Man, that boy can eat!

I took a bunch of kids to Omaha last week and we stopped at McDonalds. Everyone ordered their usual…including Garyn. He always orders 5 DOUBLE cheeseburgers. And large fries. Can you imagine being able to eat that much and still be that skinny?

Where’s the Deer? This time of year the deer are usually right next to the road…waiting for you. Be careful!

What makes guy happy and girls giggle and the police cringe?
A car with huge speakers in the trunk that makes the car shake when you crank the sound up.

Kids on A Hayrack Ride

I spotted this wild bunch out for a fun hayrack ride. I suspect they were from the SonShine Child Care Center but I didn’t get to confirm it. They were just too speedy!
