Halloween '15

This year we procrastinated and spent the Monday before Halloween in the aisles of Walmart looking for costumes.  None of the kids wanted to repeat anything in our storage boxes at home. This was in the first year in many that our school district allowed the kids to have a costume parade. Grandma Sue came up and took me to lunch beforehand and we waited for each grade to pass by. It was cold, but the kids were excited to walk around the block and wave hi to their admirers. 
Cole was Spider-man. No masks or weapons were allowed.

 Aubrey was a pirate. 

 Blake was Captain America. He is one of the only little white kids in his all day kindergarten class. Most of the kids are placed in all day because English is their 2nd language, they are Hispanic. He came around the corner holding Mrs. Henry's hand. 
 Tucker and his group of friends. He was a Grim Reaper.

 Cody and I went as the Lion Hunter and Cecil the Lion. We thought our costumes were hilarious and very clever. The scandal over the dentist that shot the famous lion earlier in the year was all over the media. Some people immediately got it and others needed it explained. Cecil was a lion in Zimbabwe that was killing the people and a dentist in the US had a permit to go on a lion hunt and happened to shoot Cecil. Animal activists weren't very happy. I did my own makeup and found my costume at a Halloween store in Orem. We trick or treated in our neighborhood this year with the Clarks.

Fun Family Saturday

On Saturday October 24th we had a fun family day. Lisa and I took all of the kids to the BYU home game against Wagner. The weather was perfect, the seats were great, the food was delicious, and BYU scored 70 points. Totally fun game for the kids. They loved it.

After the game we then drove up to Park City to attend this year's new Warren Miller movie- Chasing Shadows. It was another great Warren Miller production. We got some free ski tickets and are all pumped for the snow to start falling now.

It was a great day together doing some things that we all enjoy.
