Well this past week has put me in the Halloween mood! Bring Halloween on!
On Wednesday night I got to go to...
It is a dance concert put on by Odyssey Dance Company. All the dances are Halloween themed. It was awesome!
Thriller was awesome!
Some of my favorite dances were...
*The Skeleton dance*
*Children of the corn dance*
*Lost Boys dance*
*The River Dance*
*The Jason dance*
*The MJ dance*
*The Chucky dance. Monty's niece, Jaydee did a fabulous job at dancing. I was so impressed! It was the first time I had seen her dance.*
I had such a good time! I love dance and Halloween! Put the two of those together and you get a happy Heather!:) Not to mention, putting Micheal Jackson music in there! He was the most amazing performer! I am so sad that he is gone! He is one of my favorites! After going to "Thriller" I am so in the Halloween mood now!!
Thursday evening as I was driving home from my parents I had to stop because a house on my parents street was awesome!
Notice Jason standing by the porch? Ya, he moves and he moves his mashedy. It looks like he is attacking you. It freaked me out! Almost every thing in this yard was, electronic and censored and would go off. It was awesome! I don't think they will get very many Trick or Treators due to the fact they wont want to go to the door. Not to mention, Trick or Treat is disappearing. It is so sad that the world is so wicked that it is scary to take your kids out Trick or Treating. I so loved it as a kid!
I was so happy to see this house because the one I loved last year (scroll down to the bottom of the post to see the house) hasn't put anything out this year. Maybe they might this week, who knows.
On Saturday, I had a costume Halloween party to go to. It was with some of my old coworkers from Air Terminal Gifts. I have mention them before on my blog you can see them here. Not to mention, that was were I met Ann and Monica (who I rode to Bear Lake with) and I also got to know Leah better. We went to high-school together but became best friends from working together. I am so blessed to have worked there, just for the simple fact of how many good friends I have from there.
I have known about this party for about a week and a half. I was told to bring some kind of food to share and to bring a game with a treat for the kids. This was for the kids also. I was so excited!
Alya came down with a cold this week so I waited to see how she would be. She seemed fine on Friday so I decided to make my game and food to bring.
I think it turned out cute. I laminated it with tape, so I could use it for future parties with Ayla.
I want to have Halloween parties with Ayla and her friends when gets a little older. I think as time goes by Trick or Treat will become more obsolete. My ward this year isn't even doing a Trunk or Treat. We are having a party though which will be a lot of fun! I just want some kind of event that makes Halloween fun for my kids. I want them to be able to show off their costumes. That is part of the fun of it for kids. I remember how fun it was to dress up and go to school. Now a days, not all of the schools allow costumes.
I have Halloween cookie cutters and I have been wanting to use them this past week and I had an excuse.
Anyway on Saturday, the day of the party, Ayla started coughing, so she wasn't better. I was sad because I was looking forward to the party but I didn't want Ayla to get the other kids sick. I wanted to see my friends from ATG. Not to mention, I didn't want to have to eat all those cookies.
Luckily, Kurt got a lot of his work that he does at home done during the week. He watched Ayla so I could go to the party for a little while.
It was such a cute party! I was sad because Ayla would have loved the party!:(
There was a lot of Halloween food. People were so creative!
It was so nice to see her! It has been a while!
We ate the food and then started the games. I did my game first because I had to leave. I had to get home to Kurt and Ayla, so Kurt could get more work done.
After the game, I got a few more picture before I left.
This was all of us who worked or still works at ATG, minus Arlene.
It was such a fun little party! I so wished Ayla wasn't sick! We both would have been there in our costumes and I would have had more time with my friends. I am just glad I got to go!
Our plans this week are to go to a Trunk or Treat, at my first family ward I was in, on Tuesday. That is the ward my sister-in-law, Krista is in and she is the mother of Morganne and Kurt. Ayla would have so much fun with her cousins Trunk or Treating.
On Friday, is our ward Halloween party that Morganne, Kurt and my nephew, Lane are coming with us to.
On Saturday, we have a Halloween party at the Perry's, a birthday party for my sister, Marion that early evening, then we are going to a Trunk or Treat at my last ward I was in. Then we are going Trick or Treating a little.
I really hope Ayla gets better soon! I am not sure we will make it to the Tuesday Trunk or Treat but maybe the rest of the stuff. I am hoping!
I am in the Halloween mood!!
Not to mention that I don't like to see my sweet little girl sick!
