Dave's 42nd Birthday

Bill hosted a wonderful party for Dave's 42nd Birthday at Chart house.  Eighteen people came all ready to celebrate Dave. Here's some pictures of the evening:

The bar was right next to our table so Duck fans could enjoy the game.

We had a great view of the city from our seats.
Chocolate Lava cake for dessert

tuna and dried bananas for an appetizer

They did a custom menu for Dave's group that read, "Happy 42 Birthday David."

Fall Happenings 2011

My cousin Randy came for Thanksgiving and we got the rockets out for the boys

Randy knew right where to position the rocket so the wind wouldn't carry it away once it took off.

Plus, here's Aaron with his new gym uniform, presenting to the judges.

Halloween Bash

This is our first attempt at a Halloween Party. We had such fun setting it up. Here's the house lit up with the fog machine going.

This game and the Singstar Karaoke game were huge hits.

Why does the ab roller always get broken out as a challenge when people have been drinking

Happy Halloween in lights by P.B.

I put rocks and candles in the fire pit.

Ribbons for Costume Winners

I had our cauldron misting with a mister that glowed.

I had fruit and veggie trays for snacks

The Haunted Honolulu was the favorite drink.

Elephants deli is where I got the chicken enchiladas and they were so good!

Dave before he turned his costume into a Redneck cheerleader, complete with bad teeth and a ripped costume pretty quickly.


Bill and Christine

My super creative sister in law made costumes for herself and her husband.  Sam dressed as Andrea and Andrea went as Sam!

And last but not least-our dear trampoline where many Halloween guests took a turn jumping.
