Halloween 2012 And A Few Other Things

I can't believe I haven't blogged in almost a week. Guess I really meant it when I said this blog will probably take a back seat to school.

Well school and life in general. 

Last week was non-stop. My family in New York was one of my main concerns. We here in the South, especially the Gulf Coast of Texas know all about hurricanes and the damage they can do. I actually know about this first hand and to be honest, it still stinks to even think about all of the damage Ike did to my house. 

My family had made the decision to stay and not evacuate. They are OK and I have talked to them several times. Still no power but they have a gas stove so they have been able to cook. It has also been so cold they can put their food items on the fire escape and they stay cold. So overall a uncomfortable but doing OK. Praise God.

Also we had Halloween this past week. R1 is now officially "to old" to dress up. So he and several of others in our youth department from church manned the bounce houses and slides. R2 on the other hand was in full gangster mode. Pin striped suit, fedora hat and a shot gun. Don't judge. It was rather cute. But after going from trunk to trunk and playing games and receiving candy he couldn't wait to get out of his costume so he could jump in the bounce house and slide on the slide. Oh well looked cute for a while. 

Also last Friday R1 and a bunch of his friends decided it would fun to go out to eat and then to the Haunted Hotel. 

We had the best time. Here are a few pictures from our adventure...
This is my nephew in the blue with one of his friends.

W, K, and G. K is looking back to make sure the chainsaw guy isn't coming.

R1 and J. R1 looks relived and J still looks a little frightened.

Wheels, Me, Henry, and Laura. In the purple is Wheels' daughter and her boyfriend N. I was laughing so hard at all of them.
R, Sonya, Staci, M. They couldn't run out of there fast enough.
The gang. The guy in the skull mask is actually someone we all knew. But I think he still scared the crap out of us!
