It's A Broncos Halloween
Last year after Halloween I found a Broncos' cheerleader costume on a great sale, so I bought it for Hallie to use this year. Somehow I talked Dallas into wanting (keyword, and a little mommy trickery used to make it his idea) to be a Football player, and what we have is a Halloween to do Daddy proud. It's kind of funny the response you get from people when sports teams are involved in anything. I have noticed this as I've been somewhere with my husband and he's wearing any kind of sports jersey or hat. People like to let you know whether they like your team or not. And last night as we trick-or-treated it was no different, fan or not, people felt inclined to tell us what they thought of the Broncos. I decided after we were done trick-or-treating that I should have sent Travis around the neighborhood with the kids since he's the true fan. I just thought the costumes were cute, and had nothing to reply when people made comments.
But aside from the Broncos aspect of our Halloween, we had a fun filled evening. Our ward decided to have their Trunk-or-treat carnival on the actual night of Halloween. I didn't really agree with this idea. I prefer it on another night, then you get two parties, two chances to wear your costume, and can enjoy your neighborhood the night of. As it was though we did both, and the kids had fun. We can't wait till next year! For any of you in cold weather, our high yesterday was 87 degrees. Not quite cold, but I suppose it makes it for an enjoyable Halloween night. As we were walking around the neighborhood collecting candy Hallie kept on saying, "I've got so much candy! So much I'm going to be sick!" I guess she does listen to me sometimes. It's true though, we came home with ridiculous amounts of candy and I put the majority of it in the freezer so we wouldn't all get sick.
On a completely separate note, I just wanted to give a two thumbs up to a movie we saw last weekend on date night. We went to Dan in Real Life. It's starring Steve Carrell (my office friend) and I loved this movie. So good, so funny, but not in a slap-stick/over-the-top kind of way. It was just full of funny life situations, and was touching at the same time. I would definitely recommend this, and Travis even liked it too, it was a great date movie. The kids really want to go see Bee Movie, I wonder if it has anything to do with their campaign, have you ever seen any other movie so hyped? Hopefully it delivers.
