So the apartment complex that I live in had a Halloween decorating contest for our doors but that was soon changed by me and my roommates. We decided on a Friday night to make the area in front of our apartment into a haunted house. It took us about six hours last Friday night to hang garbage bags to block out the sun light. We also added green spider web to the ceiling of the over hang and made bats to hang from the ceiling and ghosts. We made a mummy the next night while we watched a movie and put him in the coffin. This last Tuesday night we hung the little ghosts, bats and skeleton heads from the ceiling. Then Wednesday night was finished putting up the spider web on the walls and hung a giant ghost at the entrance, but he fell down the next day. We had a black tree with skeleton's and spiders. A witch broom and then a skeleton on the floor. But to top it all off we had strobe lights! It was amazing and still is! People come up to our apartment to look because they want to know what it is, and then we come running out when we hear them scream. But we also have purple spider web with a spider and a skeleton hanging on our wall with a spider web over it with little spiders in our apartment. Oh the greatness of Halloween :)!

Oregon State vs. Boise State

I went home to Boise for the Boise State-Oregon State game! I was able to hang out with a friend who had recently just gotten home from his mission. Then the next day I was able to spend time with my parents by going to the library, and going out to eat and then of course the football game! BSU took home a big win over Oregon with a 37-24 win. The stadium had BSU spirit from the different sections to wearing their assigned BSU color to the volume of the fans screaming their lungs out. It was a great weekend! And to top it all off I found out that my brother and his wife are going to have their child in May 2011- I am going to be an aunt 9 times over! Life is amazing!
