A Great Weekend!

Three things happened this weekend that were wonderful!

1. My grandparents celebrated their 60th Wedding Anniversary. We went to east Texas to spend some time with the whole family and honor them with a party! We also attempted to take a huge family photo. Here is one of the results:



We had a great time with all of the aunts, uncles, cousins, and BABIES!


2. We had a Halloween party at our house last night. It was tons of fun to see everyone's creative costume ideas. Here are some pics:

Kate & Brandon dressed up as a Sonic car-hop on skates and a corvette.

There's a good story...My first job was as a Sonic car-hop. One day my manager told me try out the skates, and I was a good skater, so I agreed! Well, I was taking an order of Route 44 drinks to a truck near the back of the row. I had my eyes set on the truck I was skating to, and I didn't realize that a black corvette's hood was way out in my skating lane. I managed to skate under his hood, face plant onto his shiny black corvette, spill the drinks all over his car and myself, and scratch his paint with the bottom of the sonic tray. Sooooo....Kate & Brandon thought they would make light of that story and dress the part. I have to admit...it was hilarious!

Here I am pretending to be mad at Kate. (Don't you love the wig?!?! She actually borrowed the Sonic uniform from a car-hop she didn't even know!)


The Strader Family. Or the Presley family...whichever...


The corny Campbells! There is a story behind their costumes as well...but I don't even want to go there! You'll just have to ask Kevin...


All of the kids! This was the best picture I could get with this many kids!

We had a blast! And it was fun being curly-headed for a night. Brandon will keep practicing his hydraulic dance moves. Dressing up just never gets old.

The boys need to be in costume at Huddle because I didn't get to see them at Trunk or Treat. The pics are cute, but I need to see them in person!

I went back and enlarged that first photo and I couldn't help but notice that your whole family looks normal and then there's Zach. He cracks me up.
