Fun with the out-of towners!!!!!

In celebration of Halloween this week, our family themed dinners has returned!!!!! I set up a fun Black and Orange table with some spooky decorations!!!!!I served Sloppy Joes(kinda Orange with Brownish-Black whole wheat buns) sweet potato fries, carrots, cauliflower and black olives and Pumpkin cookies for dessert and we had Orange Fanta Soda or Diet Coke to drink!!My Sister and brother-in-law from Chicago are here visiting so they liked being a part of it!!!!Oh I forgot every one got a ghost sucker also!!!!
We took the Rhino out for a fun ride through the desert and ended up at our favorite ride destination for lunch!!!!!San Tan Flats!!!!!
I've always loved this art work painted on a cows hide!!!!This is exactly what this place looks like!!!
This sign reads" The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in Government" By Thomas Jefferson. A Government is a tyranny when it sets itself above the will and judgement of the people and refuses to comply with the people-one definition of tyranny!!!!I loved seeing this sign!!!!! And it is so true, right?????
One of the many water troughs, the old west decorations is so real looking!!!!
Dewayne and Reda enjoying our warm weather!!! I bet our last 90+ day we will see, I don't think it reached 90 yesterday though, but close!!!! Today our high is in the 60's!!!! How can that be???? A drop in weather almost 30 degrees!!!!!!
Riding back home through the desert, we love the desert Southwest, and from now til next summer it is like living in Paradise!!!!!! If we want Snow, you drive 2 hours North, if you want the Beach you drive 5 hours west!!!! We have it all!!!!!After seeing all 50 states I now really appreciate the true Beauty the desert southwest has to offer!!!!!
Miss Camdyn "It's funny face time"!!!! She can make a few really funny ones!!!!!
After dinner out last night we went for a drive by this house all decorated for Halloween that is right by our house!!!!!
They went all out!!!!
So awesome!!!!
Even the garage or barn gets some festive things too!!!!

Wow looks like fun! I love that you do a dinner theme idea. You are just too cute. Ok so I am so behind on all your posts...sorry, I have been so busy. I must say though it looks like good times. You have really had some fun with this Halloween season! Parties, dinners, festive homes. I love your "Boo" letters on the table. I really want to make some of those. You or Corie will have to show me how. Lets get together and maybe do some Fall or Christmas ones. Have you already did those? Ok now the best part of all is your little Miss C is a star! Who knew...or should we say we should of know. Looks like she just wanted to be added to your Monday highlights of stars! I can't wait to see the pictures. That is really something. It couldn't of happened to a more Beautiful Princess! Well hopefully will be able to stop by your house this Halloween. I would love to see you and that cute family of yours. I wouldn't want to miss Tink!

Yes, I had to change my blog title because I am training for the 1/2 marathon in January and the blog we have for that has to have our first and last names along with the word run or walk behind it...sorry for the confusion!!
Love,
