Fun Date Night

Had a fun night with my two favorite men. The three of us drove down to Rice-Eccles Stadium at the University of Utah for the last game of the semi-finals for our high school football team. Our team, Davis High School, won 41-17. It was a fun game but we all thought it would have been a closer game. In all fairness, I read that their key player was out with an injury. Next week, the high schoolers get out early because of the game and the whole family(along with probably the whole town which is one of the things I love about living in a small town) will be heading back down to Rice-Eccles Stadium to watch our team win the state championship. Go Darts...sometimes I think I have more school spirit and get more excited about these things than my high schooler's do.

In case some who read this don't know, the 2002 Olympics were held in Utah and the
Rice -Eccles Stadium was where the opening ceremonies were held which is what the sign behind is about.

Halloween 2009

We definitely had a different Halloween than we are used to. As seems to be happening more and more these days, our kids were scattered and none were with us. Jeff and I were the only ones home this Halloween so we sat outside handing out treats so we could at least see what everyone else was doing on the block. We did have a few teenagers with us for some food before they all went their different ways which was fun.
Emma and Olivia went with the Brown's trick or treating in Bountiful.They had a fun time. This is Emma and Olivia with Madison and Riley.

Cute little Riley - her sister said she loved that she had a tail.

The next morning they were separating their loot.
This is the scary house that Madi, Mikayla, Jeffrey and Kenny went to for fun. They wouldn't go when it was dark because they said it is too scary.
Mikayla and Madison went to Holly's for a while Halloween night. They all have really long fake eyelashes on here. Apparently there was a little trick or treating done also even though they stopped when they were twelve. Madi says only Holly trick or treated.
Taylor had a party with her friends. They all made tutu's earlier that week to wear that night... and then proceeded to trick or treat also.

And then there was Jeffrey's night. He didn't dress up though, this picture is from Emma and Livvy's party Friday. He went with a group of boys to watch a movie. After the movie a few of the boys went Let's just say Jeffrey will probably never go again. Apparently his group also did a little trick or treating but Jeffrey says it was ok because they only went to a few friends' homes. Hmmm...
