Happy Halloween! Check back later for an update on our trick or treating!!
After we spent the day at the pumpkin patch this Sunday, we had our neighbors over that evening for pizza and to make Halloween cookies. We used my mom's secret cookie recipe and the brand new cookie cutters Ryan bought.
This past weekend I had visions of perfection. I was going to squeeze all of our fall fun into one weekend, and it was going to be awesome. And then Alli threw up on the soccer field first thing Saturday. And I thought my plans were ruined.
Alli spent yesterday with a stomach virus, totally ruining my grand plans of cookie decorating, pumpkin carving, and pumpkin patching. So instead, we engaged in my favorite fall pastime - football watching. We watched the Tennesee-Alabama game, and this happened:
Alli: "Mama, who are you rooting for?"
Me: "Oh, gosh, I don't know if I care. I'll root for whoever you want me to."
Alli: "I'm rooting for Alabama."
Me: "I think that's a good idea. It's hard for me to cheer for Tennessee."
This Friday was the annual Fall Festival at Alli's school. Alli lives for this event - she loves Halloween, she loves dressing up, and she loves candy. I think on the 1-10 scale of Halloween carnivals I've ever attended, it gets a four. But the eyes of a child see things differently, and maybe more clearly. So I grin, bear it, and act over the top excited about the bean bag toss, putt putt course, and the dreaded cake walk.
How sad is it that until this weekend, the furthest west I'd been was College Station, TX? Well no more, friends - now I've been to Denver! My co-worker and very dear friend Kerri is getting married in a few short weeks, so she invited a few friends to celebrate a girls' weekend in Denver where her friend Jen lives. We flew out Friday night and went straight to Racine's, which is near Jen's condo, for the cheese dip to end all cheese dips. Seriously, I wish I had a picture. It was spicy, it had avocado chunks, it had salsa. It was awesome.
I woke up at 5:30 this morning to a crying baby, starting another week of work a little earlier than I wanted to. In order to keep my groggy brain awake while Riley ate, I hopped on Twitter to read tweets about last night's sports and celebrity gossip. What I got instead was something that changed my entire outlook today.
