Red Ribbon Week.....Say No to Drugs!!!!

This week at school has been a fun week.  It is Red Ribbon week or Say No to Drugs!!  The theme was different each day.  Monday was hat/cap day.  Tuesday was crazy sock day.  Wednesday was camo day.  Thursday was black/white (school colors) day.

And today, Friday is pajama day.  It is always a fun week for the kids with a GREAT message!  They also received bonus points (they are allowed to use on any grade) for participating.
Also see what we watched last night.........oh yeah, It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown.  LOVE it!!!

To Dinner and then the Haunted House.....

We had a great time with some friends on Friday night.  First, we went out to eat at Santa Fe Steakhouse.  This longhorn is out front and of course, the girls had to get their picture on it. 
Next, it was what they had been waiting for.......the haunted house. 
It was sooooo funny because the lady (below left) knew us so she was saying......come on in Lexi we won't hurt you. FREAKED Lexi out.....lol.  Soooooo, she and Addie were screaming and running around just on the porch.  Next thing we know the camo/skeleton guy was standing there staring at the girls.  At that point, I didn't know if they would even go IN the haunted house.  
The four "girls" decided to go on in.  Lexi and Addie wouldn't even have gone in if we wouldn't have gone with them.
They made it through with a LOT of screaming.  Also, the guy in the camo/skeleton mask was the one that chased them out of the house with the chainsaw roaring.......    The instant they heard that chainsaw start up they were outta there!!!!!!!!!
Such a fun night with friends!!!!!♥

(Amended) Wednesday Miscellaney.....

(My parents were in town last weekend and Sunday night I decided to try this (well, a different one it had a cajun seasoning packet in it).  It is delicious!!!  I got it from Wal-mart.     
Very easy.  You soak the beans overnight, change the water and simmer the beans for 2 1/2 hours.  Then you saute onion and garlic along with sausage or kielbasa (optional).  Add that along with a can of diced tomatoes or stewed tomatoes, seasoning packet and lemon and simmer for about 30 more minutes.  YUM!!!  We also had plenty to have leftovers which always seem to taste even better!
 
What we have been or are up to:
  • High School football games
  • OU Saturday dance class 
  • 6th Grade football games
  • Birthday Parties (seems like a LOT of Lexi's friends are turning 12 right now)
  • Fall Break will be Thursday and Friday
  • A friend is spending the night with Lexi on Thursday
  • On Friday, dinner with friends and then a haunted house
  • AND the big news of TODAY........Lexi made the 6th grade girls basketball team.....WOOHOO!!!!!!!
I probably should add that this is in addition to the "normal" happenings for each week.  Lexi has dance 2 nights a week (4 hours total), Broadway Kids (her theater/singing group) 1 night a week and voice lessons 1 night a week!!!!!!!
She also just got her 1st 9 weeks report card today and made one  B and the rest A's.  Way to go Lexi!!!!!!♥ 

Hope you are all having a great day and some beautiful Fall weather.♥

FrightFest at Frontier City......

On Saturday we took Lexi and #11- Ryan, to Frontier City (in Oklahoma City) for FrightFest.  They have the park totally decorated for Halloween.  We had GORGEOUS weather and we all had a wonderful time.  We got there when the park opened at noon and left just before it closed at 11:00 p.m.  You can click on any of these pictures to enlarge.
Fun times and along with all of the rides, they also went through a haunted house that was there.
You can see on their faces how much fun they had!
We are still having the most PERFECT weather.  Hope you all are enjoying your day.♥
