Really the only thing surprising about that is that we have known them for 20 years and this is the first year that they dressed as turtles.
We used to have all adult parties back in the day, then it turned into little kid parties, and now it’s adult and big kid parties. It’s crazy when we get together now a couple of times a year and we see how much the kids have grown.
A Few Turtle Halloween Parties Past
The Turtles have great Halloween decorations. I should have taken more photographs of all of it…
Mack also hooked up with an old friend with similar interests and Snake Eyes and Wolverine battled most of the night. They must have been pretty evenly matched, seeing as how they are both good guys and all (but Mack did tell me that Wolverine is kind of bad because he did cuss in one X-men movie).
I wasn’t the only Sookie there. I have insane eyes and a diabolical smile in this picture. Maybe I was thinking that two Sookies was one too many. I look like I am going to continue wrapping my arm around her chin and then snap her neck. And I wasn’t drinking…only water all night.
We had a great time, as always, at the Turtles’ Halloween party. Thank you Turtles!
At one hour it resets the timer and starts a five minute cool-down (which I don’t do), but I must have photographic evidence of my one hour elliptical torture. I tried to set the timer to give me a 62 minute workout (so the clock wouldn’t reset at one hour) but it said that time setting was against the gym rules. I guess you are technically only allowed one hour on the cardio machines. Who knew?
It also bothers me that when you hit pause it shows the resistance as “1” (I always set it on 10), and doesn’t show your average strides per minute (I try to keep it over 100). Why do I care about these things? I realize logically that nobody else cares, but my crazy excessercising lizard brain does. That’s the same part of my brain that considers an hour of ellipticalizing and then an hour of Bodypump as a suitable “rest” day after a long run day.
The boys thought the popcorn was delicious. Thank you Gramma!
I know that this is the post that just won’t end…but still more fascinating stuff happened this afternoon. We went over to our BFF’s/neighbor’s, the Z’s, house to carve pumpkins. I could also pull out photos of us doing this together for the last ten years, but I’ll spare you that (maybe next year).
Luckily Val had an extra pumpkin that she let us have for Cal. Thank you Val!
Oh well, I’m pretty proud of them. We’ll see them all lit up tomorrow. You can’t carve pumpkins much ahead of time here in Florida because of our still-warm days. You end up with a pile of fuzzy mush pretty quickly.
Chad is making salmon for dinner and it’s smelling delish. Bye.
