It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Halloween

There's a house down the street from us that gets all decked out every Halloween.  They must have spent thousands on Halloween decorations over the years and every year it gets more and more spooky.

The Red Lions Rock

Sammy is on a new soccer team this year.  Their uniform colors are white, black and red and the boys picked the team name of the Red Lions.  Today was their last game of the fall season.  They rock!

Lazy Friday

Today  at different times both Carley and Sammy fell asleep on our bed.  I guess playing is hard work.

Skating "Spooktacular"

This fall Lindsey has taken another 6 week class of "learn to skate".  She's really enjoying herself.  She passed Basic 1 last week and is ready to start Basic 2 in a couple of weeks. 

Their class skated together in an Halloween ice skating exhibition last night called "Skating Spooktacular".  She got to dress up in her favorite Halloween costume which is Scooby Doo.  That was an expensive costume when I bought it but I've definitely gotten my money's worth.  She was super excited and did great!

Oma Has Another Birthday

My mother turned 85 on her birthday, September 24th.  She's still going strong.  In fact she's in the middle of doing some remodeling to her kitchen.  Like last year, I took her down to Salt Lake City  for lunch at her favorite German restaurant and to see a musical, this year Mary Poppins.  And this year not only Lindsey came along but so did Sammy.  We also met Cindy and Brian for lunch.  We took the train down like last year.  Needless to say, Sammy loved that.  It was such a fun day.
