Nerd Alert!!

Kirk and I have found a past time we can both enjoy. Being RSL Soccer fans!!! Saturday for our date night, we had tickets to the first playoff game for RSL!! It was such an awesome, intense game, and RSL won!!! YIPEE!!! They scored the only goal of the game in the 90th minute....are you kidding me!!! Exactly what they did in the previous game. We were dying!! Kirk had yelled so much, he was hoarse by the end of the game. RSL dominated the whole game!!! When Kirk was on his way to Illinois back in Sept, he ran into the team at the airport and got their autographs. So cool!!! This is our attire for all the games!!! We love RSL!!!!

All Hallows Eve....

The day started early with getting the kids up and in costumes and off to school. Thank goodness Kirk got the day off and was there to help me. That was so nice!!! The kids were excited to wear their costumes to school. They are all playing their parts well! Bek and I started a new tradition this year for Halloween. We get bored sitting at home alone passing out candy, so we decided we would trades houses every year for Halloween. This year we had it at my house. Bek brought over all her stuff, the kids got ready at my house, Bek and I made a yummy 2 soup dinner(we always felt bad grabbing fast food) fed everyone, sent them out the door with the hubbies, and passed out candy together. It was a great idea and a lot of fun! It is for sure crazy, but that is half the fun right!!? Didnt take to long for everyone to figure out where Gav and Beks family was. All in all, it was a great night! The weather could not have been better, and the kids, of course, made a haul!!
Blurry...I hate blurry. Finally get R to actually look and smile at the camera at the same time, and its blurry....ahhhh...
Back...he loved this contraption!
A and IB.
AJ was death. Death was bored waiting to go.
The 4 year olds ready to hit the streets!!Thats BB in the green Power Ranger costume. The whole time Gav was getting him dressed, this kid was humming his own theme music. He was in the zone too. It was hilarious!!!
Gav and JC...diggin the shoes with the fatigues(sp?) JC!!! Gav in his Ghostbuster costume, minus the pack. Hes pretty easy to spot in the dark!
Oh Mr. Jack-o-lantern....

Time to do some carving! Actually had E and A draw and carve their own pumpkins this year. They loved it and did a great job! I am the official guts scooper outer. Im pretty anal about how well they are cleaned out...gotta get it all out man!! I love doing things as a family! Our kids are just so pleasant!!!

Yes everyone....that is Kirk in the pic. He was actually home when we carved pumpkins. We could not remember the last time he was home when we have carved. It was so great!!!! I wasnt exhausted when we were all done. Forgot what it is like to have help, and it was nice just having him there. Heres to next year and Kirk being there.....fingers crossed!!!
The final product the next day. R's was leaking something that was pretty gross. With how warm it was, the pumpkins barely held on. By Halloween night, the insides were just a pool of mushy goo.....that I had to stick my hand in.....yak!!!

Kirk and I went all out this Halloween...not!!! We were...if you couldnt tell....RSL fans! We have recently become fans! Well, I have always been a soccer fan and was totally excited when we got a professional team. And whats even better is they are actually good this season. So kirk has seen the light and we have been to 4 of the last 4 games and then some!!!Buying garb and everything!!! Nerd alert!! We actually got a lot of attention in our garb. Good times!!!
R was Sleeping Beauty. A very practical Beauty who wanted to wear her running shoes. Its all about the comfort. I wanted her to be a frog, but so not worth the argument. R, her little cousin(the witch) and I were on a team playing....see how fast you can wrap the person with TP! We won!!!R made her little cousin get wrapped and just watched me work.....see that look of winning approval on her face....
Our little Princess. I called her our Lady in Red!! So many people told us how beautiful she looked! I curled her hair so pretty, but didnt get a good pic of it. Took me an hour to do it!!!
E was a trick or treater, who was runner, who got hit by a car and is now dead(aka....a Zombie) She put this together all on her own!!
Dont know what it is with this guy and the peace sign thing. Not that Im against peace or anything...I love peace! Lately his thing is to hit his chest twice with his fist and say 'peace out'.
