The Phantom!

I have always loved plays and musicals so as an early birthday present my parent bought Kevin and I Broadway tickets to see The Phantom of the Opera on Saturday which is celebrating its' 20th year anniversary!
The Phantom is Broadway's "Most Haunted Love Story" that you ever have the chance to go, you should not miss it! We had a great time and there is nothing like watching a real Broadway play and of course the music is just so awesome especially with the live orchestra.

Le Fantôme de l'Opéra was actually a book published in 1911 by Gaston Leroux. He wrote the book explaining how he carried out his own enquiries into the strange events that had occurred in the famous Opera House in the 1880s. He tells of how he visited the huge underground lake where the Phantom hid and even stumbled upon the skeletons of "some poor wretches who had been massacred under the Commune in the cellars of the Opera."

Thanks Mom & Dad we love you!

We have a new Baby...

Kevin and I decided that after we had Parker that we were done having babies, and then something happened that I swore would never happen...

Scroll down to find out more

....We got a puppy! That's right shame on all of you who thought I was pregnant it's a puppy! I always said that I didn't want any pets but we went to the pumpkin patch a few weeks ago and they were giving away these cute little German Shepherd - Chow puppies and I got out numbered 4 to 1.

Hunter picked out his name which is Jazz after a Transformer named Jazz.

All Parker and Hunter want to do is play with Jazz. If I would of know how clean my house would be with a dog, because my kids are afraid the dog will eat their toys if they leave them out, I would of gotten a dog a long time ago.

So while Hunter picked out the name Andrew picked out the puppy, and of course it's a boy which means I'm now out numbered 5 to 1. Despite my protest to having a dog it's not about me and makes me very happy to see my kids so happy with the puppy and that's who it is really about.

ASU puts on what the call a BOO Bash which is a trunk or treat and carnival for all the families living on campus and since our entire ward boundaries is the campus they just combined our ward trunk or treat with the Boo Bash. Now besides the trunk or treat they had local retailers like Target, Burger King and Chick fil A sponsor the Boo bash so all the candy was free, they had many carnival booths, cotton candy, popcorn, rock climbing walls and tons of bounce houses and again it was all free. We invited several of our friends and had a blast.

The Pirate and his Wench!

Parker as Robin!

Andrew as Snake Eyes from GI Joe!

And Hunter as none other than Darth Vader!
