Halloween fun

I really wish I had these videos. It was tradition to watch them over and over and over every Halloween in our family. These were two of my favorite. The third is the Great Pumpkin, but I have that one on DVD.

Tonight Kaiti and I get to go to a Halloween party at Mike and Andreas house. For those of you who don't know, they are the parents of Jonah's god-daughters, LaLa and Biscuit. Kaiti just went to return her costume for something else and I am going to be some guy. I don't really know how to explain it. It's a random mask and a robe. It was cheap. That's all that mattered. We wanted to match. Kaiti was going to be Dorothy and I would be the scarecrow, but the Dorothy dress didn't fit right. Then we were gonmna be Lil Red Rididng Hood and the Big Bad Wolf, but the dress didn't fit right again. We tossed out so many ideas that we just gave up. Let's just be "whatever".

It should be fun. Then tommorrow we get to go to Barrack Obamas rally and speech down in Denver. That will be fun. I want to take pictures but I don't think you can bring a camera. I'll double check.

Man, it's gloomy out right now and the wind is whipping through the trees and brushing the leaves around the parking lot. I love it.

We've got the Garfield Holiday Celebrations DVD: Halloween, Christmas, and some terrible Thanksgiving thing that I don't recommend. I watched the Halloween one with the kids this morning while doing some prep-work on the cake Sarah and I were making for tonight's ward Halloween party.

Ah, Gar-Halloween-Field!

"You be havin' a might too many peg legs, there, matey!"

I love it.

Hey, the whole Garfield is on youtube is three pieces. I've got the same dvd 'Siah does, and the Thanksgiving one doesn't get my vote, either.

I watched Sleepy Hollow this afternoon (have it on a dvd with Mister Toad, which is not all that amusing) and remembered how it used to scare me when it was on tv every year and I was 7 or 8 or 9. Good times!

Hope you all have a great time at Little Mike's!

I also own the garhalloweenchristmasfield dvd..and I just went out a couple of days ago and purchased the great pumpkin too (which has the added "It's Magic, Charlie Brown" which is a nice added bonus, I think). I want so badly to give my kids the same memories..or a version of the same memories I have from being a kid so I feel like these are must haves for them. They also watch Monster House which obviously wasn't around when we were kids..but it's a goodin anyway.

I need Sleepy Hollow..and I can't for the life of me remember the name of this one I've had in my head. I remember there being like.. a fence and some pumpkins and..nevermind, I'm not getting anywhere with this memory hahah.

I also want the Roseanne and Saturday Night Live Halloween dvds.

It feels like for the first time since I was a kid..I'm actually excited for Halloween. Probably because Calix totally knows what it is now and talks about it all day because he'll get to wear his dinosaur costume.
