Flashback- Halloween 1981

Sorry I missed the memo on the flashback, but here you go. (Jesse kept stealing my keyboard to use with his work laptop to work on reports at home- seriously, I think we have our priorites crossed! hee hee) Anyway this is my sisters and I Halloween 1981. I guess we were dolls or Raggedy Ann something or other... either way I guess people gave us candy so I don't think we cared.

Am I the only one that feels like costumes just aren't original like they were when we were little. Your choice was to wear a vinyl suit that was barely hanging on by the end of the night, with a plastic mask that had tiny slits for eyes and was extremely suffocating while running door to door! Or you could try and come up with your own costume (which I prefered, or my mom preferred because she wasn't going to waste money on junk! I've said that to Colton before-scary) and had to get really creative! Well here's to a safe and fun Halloween!

Highlights from our midwest trip

We had a whirl wind week! Between driving back and forth from my moms and my sister's houses (45 minutes apart) we packed in a lot of fun! The harvest party was saturday and lasted late into the night (with 22 people staying the night at their house!), sunday morning was the baptism and lunch. Monday was fun at Chuck E. cheese and then Tuesday was an awesome turkey dinner celebrating my mom's __ birthday!!! It was a busy, great time and I'm so glad we went!

Ashlee and Kacie's Baptism

Wondering why you haven't heard from me for a while? Well, Colton and I took an impromptu trip to the Midwest for my sister's Harvest Party and both of my nieces were baptized in their church! After a little coercing (Colton chasing Kacie around the back of the church) Kacie dipped her finger in the water and touched her forehead! Then Colton said, "But I thought I was gonna be baptized too." So the pastor "baptized" him also! (We plan on having him get a full water baptism when he really knows the impact of his decision-according to our beliefs) It was pretty crazy and cute! Never know what 4 year olds are going to do!!!

Saturday 80's flashback

Ok, so Jesse and I already know that we are dorks and we revel in the fact that we liked the 80's. Saturday night we got caught watching an 80's show on VH1 and it hooked us until almost 2:00 am. Why... I have no idea! But it was fun reminicsing (sp?) about the crazy music things we remember, and what we were doing at that time- he's 6 years older so his 80's experience was vastly different than mine! While he was rocking out to VanHalen and DefLeppard, I was watching Punky Brewster, having contests to see who could keep the beat to "We will rock you", and memorizing all the words to Bangles songs!!! Good Times!!! We both engaged in some form of horrid hairstyle and played Atari and computer games (we've actually been keeping our eyes open for an original version of Oregon Trail and Kings Quest-Ha!) I'm sure you all have great 80's memories and it is fun to go back to when life seemed a lot simpler. I just dread what Colton's teenage years will be like...Ugh
