[Oct 24] I Made These Beauties

Spider web cupcakes for the Harvest Festival. Two Dozen. I was a little too ambitious. The other dozen spiders kinda looked like snot balls because I was tired of piping. Oh well, it was for a good cause: The Choob's Harvest Festival Fund Raiser.

[Oct 24] Pumpkins at the Park

We went to the Park (because I had to be at a two hour meeting on my day off) to enjoy their Halloween Festivities. Choob was Harry Potter with a wand, that he kept pointing at people and yelling, "Arana Exame". Dont' worry, he knows all the spells from Harry Potter. If you look real close you can see the scar he made me draw on his forehead.

Finding snakes in the sand.
Racing animals. Always pick the penguin. Never pick the buffalo.
Squirt gun rubber duck races. The boys were good at this one. Sharp Shooters.

We had a wonderful morning at the Wild.

[Oct 23] Goose the Bounty Hunter

We went to Eag & Ians Halloween Party and it was AMAZING!! The place looked better than the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland and they converted the garage into a spook alley that terrified the kids and most of the adults. Not to mention the food. Mrarrrwww.
Goose was Dog the Bounty Hunter. I told him to get into character and talk Pidgen all night to everyone. His mullet was my favorite part.
No I did not stick my finger in an outlet. I was supposed to be Hermione Granger from Harry Potter and she has "unruly" hair. Eag was the wicked witch. Definitely a stretch for her. I think I've seen her mad like twice.

The Choob was Harry Potter but I didn't get any pictures of him because he was running around with Addi, who was a very cute Dorothy. Thanks for the fun start to Halloween guys!

[Oct 20] Disneyland Day Two

Two days at Disneyland= LOTS of fun!

Choob went on these bumper cars for the first time. He loved crashing into everyone.

He was so worn out by the end of the second day that he fell asleep eating his Chex.
Come again soon Aunties. We love you!

[Oct 19] Disneyland with the Aunties

The Aunties came to visit from Utah. We went to Disneyland. It was their first time and we had a blast!
Luke loves his Aunties!

We got to spend the night in a hotel and Choob thought it was awesome. Look at that happy little pumpkin boy!

These were the only three pictures they took all day. Must have been having too much fun to stop for a photo op.

[Oct 6] Disneyland

We made a quick trip to Disneyland because Uncle Goosey's pass was about to expire.

Choob liked all the Disney pumpkins on display.

He also likes to pick his nose and wipe it on jeffs hair.

Jeff beat all of us. It's not fair. He has had government training.

[Oct 11] Wiiiiiiiii love to Win

So we went to this Employee Appreciation night for the WAP. It was at this "fancy" hotel with "fancy" food and you had to dress "fancy". In fact, Dan had to buy a sweater from Target (look out) because he doesn't own anything that falls into the "fancy" category.

There were ballrooms set up with karaoke, a gambling hall and a Wii bowling tournament.

I have NEVER played the Wii bowling. In fact, the only time I've ever played a Wii was with Ty & Alex before they got married. But, when you are married to a "gamer" (aka video game nerd) you don't pass up the chance to participate in a Wii bowling tourney.

In order to get into the tournament you had to bowl a strike on your very first bowl. Dan and Ty were telling me how to use the Wii and low and behold I bowled a strike. While they did not. Hee haa!

Jess (my co-worker) and I with our free hats from the first bowl. We had to come back an hour later to participate in the tournament.
During the tourney the official had to show me how to get to the next screen. Proof that I had NO CLUE what I was doing.
I say that I put this picture in here to demonstrate that I had no knowledge of how to operate the Wii. Truth be told: I mostly put this picture in here because my legs look good. (See above)

You had to keep bowling strikes on the first try to advance in the tournament. It's all about the form. My co-worker Bri and I made it to the finals. By this point we had bowled four strikes in a row! I was a nervouse nellie thinking I might actually win a prize.
We went to the party with Ty & Alex. She is the jedi master of guitar hero. Seriously. She will rock your world. Aren't they cute?

The final bowl for the win! Eight strikes later I was the winner of a $100 gift certificate. Boo-yaw!
First, second and third place. I may or may not have told the second place girl (a condor keeper) to suck it in the heat of the moment. It's not like I'm competitive or anything.
My work family. All of them were there cheering me on. Go Flightliners!
