C'mon, Everybody cut, Everybody cut, FOOTLOOSE.

Who would have known I would be hangin' with Kenny Loggins last night? Lo was given some free tickets from Zion's, so we decided to make a night of it. We went and had a great dinner and then headed to the concert. My knowledge of his music includes the song from Footloose, and that Pooh Corner children's song. Now, I loved the movie Footloose so I was hoping he would get that song in, which he did. It really was a fun concert and I learned that he sings a lot of familiar songs that I didn't know were his. We got a backstage pass and even got to chat with him for a minute or two. He was a nice guy and really did put on a great show. So Kenny, Lo and I are tight now. Make sure to keep your eyes and ears open for his next hit dedicated to us.

Drew started playing in an indoor soccer league a couple of weeks ago. I do have to admit his indoor soccer has been a little more fun to watch than his Fall games with the Killer Bees for a few reasons:
1. It is a much faster moving game
2. Drew is moving faster along with it
3. Goal total for his entire Fall soccer season=1
and for his indoor soccer season(only 2 games so far)=4
4. The playing area is fenced off, so I don't have to ask Sommer to get off the field every other minute
1 negative: the team name is The Duckies. Am I a rude mom? I really should think that is a cute name right?

Halloween SPOOKtacular.

October was full of MANY celebrations and it finally came to an end on Friday.
Thursday, we decided to add one more party to the list before the big day. We carved pumpkins, ate caramel apples, had orange hot cocoa, and watched Disney's, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow with our pumpkins lit by the fireplace. Our kids were bouncing off the walls and Lo and I had sugar headaches by the time the night was over.
After sleeping off our sugar high it was officially Halloween time. Drew started the day with a party at his school. Everyone dressed up and brought treats to share with the class.

Later that night, and once Superman and our little fairy were in their Halloween best, we headed to Trunk or Treat at our ward building. There were A LOT of people there. We brought around 200 pieces of candy and ran out in about 20 minutes. Drew and Sommer happily ended the Trunk or Treat with bags bulging with goodies.
After the Trunk or Treat success, we went Trick-or-Treating to Grandma Jane's and then to Grandpa Lo's.

We had fun visiting with the grandparents and decided to call it a night. I feel like we celebrated Halloween around 50 times this year before the actual holiday finally came. I was a little relieved to see The Halloween spectacular finally come to a happy end.
