HaLloWeeN pArTy 2009

Last weekend we had our 3rd Annual Kirschman Halloween Party. It was great! My brother Adam and his wife Hillary hosted it again this year. There old place was perfect for a Halloween party. It was an old house with a lot of character. It's always fun to see what costumes everyone comes up with. Russ' costume was all his idea! (Can you tell who he is?? ha ha)

Me (genie), Russ (Angel Moroni), Adam (Phantom of the Opera), Hillary (Sandy from "Grease")
Mom (gypsy), Dad (an old time golfer.. he put the mustache together!)
Tom (satyr), Molly (Queen of Hearts), Sophie (flower), Evie ("Alice")
Mason (Newsie), Kelsey (Fairy)
Chris (Harry Potter..he totally got his own costume), Christine (Rizzo from "Grease"), Henley (Princess)
Kelsey with Kenna and Mark's baby, Beck (Pooh)
Two Queen of Hearts! Molly and Kenna
The winners of the costume contest! (Mark was hilarious and made so much of his costume! Nacho Libre)
It was great! Thanks Adam and Hill!

Fall Fun

I love Fall
Beautiful colors
Pumpkin patches

I enjoy October. It is a good time of year and we were glad to have some good weather!

One night Russ and I made caramel apples to give to some friends and neighbors. I was melting the caramel and it seemed to be taking a very long time (the heat wasn't too high, cause I didn't want to burn the caramel). Then, all of a sudden, the power went out! Dang! It gave us a fun excuse to hang out with some friends. Russ opened our door and there was our neighbor, Tyler standing there with his flashlight. He came over. (This is us pretending to be scared..or scary)

Our friends Dave and Jessica also came over a little while after, and we chatted over candlelight and flashlight.

The power was only out for about 45 mins, so Russ and I finished up the apples.

We went to our Tri-ward Halloween party/Trunk or Treat. I pulled out my leprechaun costume from last year and Russ was a tourist (he wore that nice outfit on our cruise).
Suzi, Kevin, and their son Cody (the cast of "SCRUBS")
We invited our friends Tyler to go with us and we gave him Russ' hat to wear.
It was fun. We had dinner (there were tons of different soups and chilis to choose from) and then we sent our trunks for Trunk-or-treating. We hung my little pumpkin quilt and had a real pumpkin. It was very chilly, but we got hot chocolate brought to us on a cart, which was great.

One evening our friends Tyson and Lauren invited us over for dinner and pumpkin carving. Dave and Jessica came too.

After a few tries...Russ finally came up with"FIND YOURSELF." Good ol' Russ
