So 2 hours later Kale gets back from a big nite of trick or treating and we HAVE to dump the bag out on the dinning room table to check everything out......and I am looking for the popcorn ball....but much to my amazement no popcorn balls.....but there was a GIANT tube of toothpaste and a toothbrush.......ha......now I have heard of people giving these items out and trust me I do not have a problem with it at all!!!!! BUT this tube of toothpaste was not your average travel size toothpaste it was the GIANT one you buy off the shelf at your local Wal-Mart.....family size!!! And they are not always cheap.....so I am not sure if that is what everybody got or if somebody ran out of candy so they started cleaning out the cupboards or what.....I know it sounds like I am making a big deal out of it and that is really not what I am trying to do but it was hilarious when he dumped everything out of the bag and out fell the toothpaste on top of all the candy!!!! Here it is the GIANT tube of toothpaste......family size.....I know he needed it after eating the WHOPPER'S.......those are his FAVORITE!!!!!!! I just wanted a popcorn ball!!!!!! DARN IT!!!!

We had a full day of shopping and plenty of laughing too.....I love girlz weekends !!!!!! So on Saturday we went to Steph's moms house for the 2nd annual Halloween party. As kids Geri(steph's mom) was our girl scout leader....and she was an AWESOME leader....always had cool crafts to do and she always had the Halloween party......these are the things that I can remember doing when I was a kid......I am sure there were alot of things that I do not remember but these are a few that I do remember.....the ghost cakes, the spooky story with the gory items sent around to feel.....the macaroni shaped like a brain, the peeled grape eyeballs, and the gross feeling hand and I think spaghetti veins???? And don't forget the monkey bread for breakfast!!!!! That is sooo funny to me because I am now the "monkey bread mom". Anyway it was something we all really looked forward to every year and had a blast being freaked out by all the gross stuff!!!!! So for the past 2 years she has invited us all down to her house for the party....we all dress in costume, hang out and have a really good time eating and laughing and telling stories about the "old days" and she always has a little blast from our past!!!! So I just want to send out a GREAT BIG THANK YOU to Geri!!!! It may have just been being a girl scout leader to her but to us she really touched our lives and helped make us appreciate those little things in life that people do......so for that I thank you from the bottom of my heart and you are a very special person to me!!!!!
Steph (witch) and Geri (professor).
Steph giving Tami (Jan Brady) a ride on her broom!!!!
Me as Pippi Longstocking.
And the group shot.....Martina came a little later she is the "old lady".......that's her costume I am not saying she is old!!!!!!!!
Geri, Steph, Martina and Tami......I know you see the wine bottle but I promise Steph had NOT opened the wine yet!!!!!!

This was the tank of the old tractor........i thought it was kind of cool looking!!! Not the best photo. I was the only one who remembered to bring my camera(wink,wink).....and it is old!!!!!
And we can not post pumpkin pictures without a picture of the guts!!!!!! I wanted to make pumpkin seeds in the oven but did not have time to look up a recipe.......can anybody help me out?????
And last but not least.......the carvings.........the kids told me that a face was way over-rated!!!! I think they were trying to tell me I was way out of touch.....and not very hip!!!!! I kept asking "what is wrong with a cute little face?" As you see.......no faces on our pumpkins!!!!!! But they had fun!!!!!

Finally what you all have been waiting for!!!! The cannon!!!! It is an air cannon......and holds as much pressure as a car tire. They pack it just like they packed a cannon in the old days only they used straw and the "ball" was a pumpkin!!!!! They were shooting into the wind so they said it would probably only go about 3/4 of a mile......if they have the wind behind them they said it would go 1- 1 1/2 miles!!!!! WOW it was kind of cool!!!!! The picture shows the straw flying out of the cannon.....sorry no pumpkin.....I must have been to slow!!!!!
And we got this awesome pampered chef pizza stone, cooling rack, scrubber and measuring cup...I love this stuff.......$60....now that's a deal!!!! Plus we got several buffet tickets, Iowa Cubs tickets and some tickets to the Iowa Speedway.......Kale can't wait for that!!!!!
I am not sure how much money they raised but I think they had a really good turn out and I think everybody enjoyed themselves!!!!!
1. I burnt my eyeball one time while curling my hair.....right before getting ready to go see REBA in concert......I do not think my husband was to happy!!! But I got to wear a pirate patch home from the hospital.....how cool is that!!!!! yes you are right.....WEIRD!!!
2. I like the TP to go over the top NOT under.....my husband likes it under.....maybe he does it just to make me CRAZEE!!!!!!
3. When I sneeze....I never sneeze once....always at least 3 times if not more....WEIRD....but what I think is even more WEIRD is that my family counts and knows how many times I sneeze....REALLY WEIRD!!!!!
4. My sister thinks this is WEIRD.....I find it to be perfectly normal......I put deodorant on before I go to bed!!!!! You never know!!!!
5. The smell of tuna or even the thought of tuna makes me GAG!!!!! So if anybody in my house wants tuna they have to eat it AND have the smell out of the house before I get home!!!!
6. I pulled all my eyelashes out on one eye one time while trying to curl them with that little eyelash curler......now I looked really WEIRD!!!!!!
7. I have a really addictive personality.......if I get "hooked" on something.......WOW I am really obsessed.....it's kind of WEIRD!!!!!
