Halloween at RMS

A lot of great costumes from the teachers and staff!

Pumpkin Time

We got to pumpkin carve this afternoon.

We went with smaller pumpkins because the larger take forever to gut.  Plus the larger ones at our Walmart were HUGE this year.  Only 3 fit in a cart!

Jared wanted his 'throwing up', but I decided the guts were not coming in the house except for a picture or two.
(excuse my hair, I was in a costume all day)

Sahara and mom chose the traditional orange and Canyon picked white for himself and Jared.

Canyon came home with this poster size painting and was so excited that he ran off the bus to show me.  He helped tape it to the door and was so proud.  :)

Then today he came home with this little masterpiece.  Even better!
Painted, Modge Podged, sewn and stuffed.  It's a keeper for next year.

Bost Halloween Bash

We didn't really have costumes ready for this party so we used what we wore a couple years ago.  They were unpacked and ready to go.

Out of 20 or so participants,  3 prizes were awarded.  Canyon got one :)  Cutest Costume.

Here he is in a line up doing the Electric Slide (of which I have video but have been fighting with my phone for over an hour trying to load it to blogger :(  grrrrr)  Also in the picture with him, 2 of my former students and one current student :)

The altars are up!

I wish I had more room in this crackerbox. Also random huge spiders (of the synthetic variety) and our 'enter if you dare' yard decoration. Let the candy begin!!

Canyon is 17

Happy Birthday Canyon!

We drove up to Wiederkehr Winery for their Oktoberfest for his birthday.
There were hundreds of people there.  

Found this cute little window box for pictures.

We ate German food and listened to a German band play instruments we had never seen before.

There was horse back riding, a camel ride, tractor ride and lots of booths selling goodies.  We took the tractor ride.

It drove us out through the vineyards.

We stayed for a few hours and ended up back at the orange flowers.

Home for a nap and then we got ready for a cook-out and bonfire.

Then it was time for gifts!  Thank you everyone for the gifts, cash, and gift cards!

When we sang happy birthday, after he blew out the candle, he proclaimed, 'I'm 20!!'  What a nut!

Happy Birthday kiddo!

What a Crack Up!

Conversation I had with Canyon's teacher. What a nut. I wish I could get him to talk more at home!
