A little of THIS and a lot of THAT...

This post is going to be one of those random posts consisting of all the things I PLANNED on blogging about but never got around to!

~Spooktacular 5 K~

I ran in the Mantua Spooktacular 5K race with Julie.

I won 1st Place in my age division! Yes, I was shocked.

~Dinner at Troy and Carols~Our good friend's Troy & Carol invited us to their house for a yummy dinner of homemade pizza and to play games...(compliments to Chef Carol!) Audrey & Kim and Mike & Carrie also came.

The food was excellent and the company superb!

We seemed to be laughing at something (usually Troy!) all night long!

We had a great time playing games and of course eating dessert! This is a shot Audrey took of the Earthquake Cake I made...(it's so nice to share photos!) Just one bite (if I do say so myself) makes you "feel the earth move under your feet..." It's the most gooey, rich, chocolaty, sinful, earth shaking, slice of heaven on earth cake around! And of course with absolutely NO calories! Oh just hit me...maybe that's WHY it's called Earthquake Cake! Because you can't quit eating it and so eventually the earth will move under your feet...literally!

This is Troy, Mike, and Carrie. They have all been friends since high school.

I learned you should NOT tell anyone you are going to take a picture. Just do it! Otherwise "some" people try and hide or make interesting hand signals...that mean WHO KNOWS WHAT!

We really had fun and I got laughing so hard at one point that I had tears streaming down my face. The game Linkity was not linking with my brain at first and I lost it when I realized I said "Leroy" to link with Uncle...NO idea where THAT came from! I still laugh when I think about it! Yeah, you had to be there. Go here to read Audrey's version of our fun night.

Thanks Troy and Carol for a really fun night. Let's not wait so long until we do it again!

~Party at Kevin and Loraine's~

Our friends live next to the mountain and have leveled off a cool spot above their house with a bonfire pit. We enjoyed HOT SCONES dripping with butter and honey (thanks to Kim aka the Scone Master!), yummy hot cocoa and great ward buds! It was a hike to get up to the spot, but once there, it was beautiful looking out across the entire city below.
This is the scone master (I borrowed these photos from Audrey's blog) Yes, he hauled his cook stove up there as well! And he just can't resist teasing me about snakes crawling up my leg until I slap him really hard!
Zach, McKay, and Carson had fun exploring the mountain in the dark. The black rope is what we hung onto to rapple get up the mountain.

Janzen (trying to get phone service- "Can you hear me now?"), Dave, and the snake scone master.

Me, Jen (actually getting phone service), Audrey, and Loraine

Audrey looking real hot next to the roaring fire!

~Adventures in paint balling~Taylor is the man

Pretty sure they wouldn't let them on a plane.

~Me and Bonnie out to lunch with Mona~

We visit teach her and she is the most delightful and hilarious lady. She just cracks me up! We both just love her!~

~ Like I said, this is a RANDOM post!~

~Taylor the stud~

~The boys picking grapes for grape juice~

I wish I had a picture of the after product!

~This is what happens to action figures at our house~

~Out to dinner with the Parrish's and the Packers after ward temple night~
We ate at Union Grill. Yum!

~Celebrating Heidi's 40th!~

No, NO!....40 is NOT over the hill!

~Sky with a new look~
He wouldn't let me take his picture (nothing new - he NEVER will!)~

Gotcha! Yep, he went brown! I actually like it...I think.

~Bryce duck hunting~
They got 15 that day!

~Bryce smiling~
His jaw is finally healed! (just in time for hockey!) Aaargh!

~My Mom gave me this cute wall hanging!~
So true, so true!

That's all the random- ness for today!
