Halloween 2011

This year for Halloween we went to the church trunk or treat on Sat. night and on Halloween night we went to Mandi's again for dinner and trick or treating.  Since we don't live in a neighborhood that is trick or treat friendly we went somewhere that was!  A lot of her neighbors really decorate and it is a lot of fun.  I took a pic of the best Halloween house I have ever seen.  Jack took off his costume while trick or treating so he wandered around in his PJ's with his candy bucket.  Dane was Justin Bieber, Jack was a dinosaur and Ike and I were Justin's stage crew and security (we weren't into adult costumes this year so we did what was easy).  Not too many people got Dane's costume and one person called him a telemarketer (we laughed) but he didn't care because he was determined to be Justin.  I'm glad it's over now because we can cut his hair!!!  He has been growing it out since he decided what he wanted to be.  Halloween was fun, but BRING ON THANKSGIVING AND CHRISTMAS!

Where were you on Sept. 11, 2011?

We spent Sept 11th doing the most patriotic thing we could think of.....watching an all american major league baseball game!  Angels were playing who other then the Yankees!  We got there as the National Anthem was playing and there was a giant American flag on the field that covered the whole outfield.  Pretty cool!  It was a warm day so we only stayed in our seats a few innings then moved to the upper seats in the shade.  Much better!!!  It was a great day and I'm glad we decided to go to the game.  To make it even better, after the game all the kids got to run the bases on the field.  Dane loved it and it was cool to go down to field level!

After running the bases!

National Anthem was playing as we got to our seats!

The flag was bigger than this.  They were rolling it up in this shot.
