Last night we went to a new friend's home (trained with Todd over the summer for Augusta) for a Halloween Bash. And what a bash it was. Their home was decorated from the front of the drive way all the way through the house and out near the BBQ Pit. It was amazing. There are people who celebrate Christmas by pouring on the greens, reds and lights, but the M's are Halloween folk. Their basement was a Haunted House with tons and tons of Halloween decorations (they bought out the Halloween Outlet last year) activities, food and of course beer for all...The adults. The food was out of this world, eye balls, mud pie, fingers, monster chips, chex mix grub, worms, brains and bloody punch. I got my fill of all the evils last night.
The kids dressed up in their costumes from, Cheerleaders, Laura Engles, Gothic Chick, Vampires, Ronald McDonald and even the Hamburgler. The M's home was filled with Halloween magic and we thank them for inviting our family to their home.
Today is Halloween, but just as important in the eyes of the cheerleaders in my home, it is the day before "Cheer Bowl". This is an event that the Cheerleading Coaches spend all season practicing for, the covenant prize of being Number 1. My daughters in between their "Trick or Treating" will be having nails done, hair put in rollers, practicing that final routine and eating a few morsels of candy before the big event that takes place all day tomorrow.
My parents are also on their way from Mississippi where my sister, Nicole just had the last of her pins removed from knee surgery a few months back.
This weekend will zip by with Ghost, Goblins, Cheerleaders, Grandparents and squeezing in a weight workout with Sarah, before we know it.
Will leave with one more quote to ponder over as I prepare for the hallow's of eve.
