1st Annual Haunted House Decorating Contest

Dawn and Brian - Party planner extraordinaire! And their house complete with landscape!

Jeff very focused while he decorated! I so appreciate that he will do this stuff with me! He can pipe frosting like it's nobodies business!
Our Award Winning Haunted House! Notice that as you enter the house you enter his mouth! :) Front and back views.
I had to add a picture of the house below! I call this house the Mardi Gras House! I love this house because the McDonald girls worked on it and I think they included every possible type of candy that was there!

BIG THANKS to Dawn and Brian for throwing our 1st Annual Haunted House decorating contest! It was so much fun to have all our friends together and even more exciting that the Lombardi's new house was able to accommodate everyone and some! We did potluck style with soups, breads, and desserts and then everyone was to bring all the stuff they wanted for decorating. I saw candy last night that I didn't even know existed before! It was so fun and I'm so excited that we have started a new Halloween tradition!!!

Riley's Farm - Apple Press

The Winning Girls Team
The Second place team

On Saturday we went with a group of friends to an Apple Orchard where you get to pick apples off of the trees and press your own apple juice. It was so much fun! Mainly because it actually was a little bit cold and actually felt a bit like fall! Walking through all the many different types of apple trees and pumpkin patches was a treat, but the real fun came when we had the girls vs. boys apple press. As you can see the girls won and I'm not going to lie - the kids did the majority of the cranking. It always feels good to win! But really it was just super fun to be with fun friends!

Neil Baby!

Jeff and I with the Hollywood Bowl in the back!
If you look close enough you might actually see Neil Diamond!

Does anyone recognize the girl on the right in the picture below??? Well if any of you are watching the new 90210 like my friend Amber and I are then you would recognizer her! She is the mom of one of the high school girls! We totally had to get a picture with her because we are such fans of the show! :)

A big group of us went to see Neil Diamond last night at the Hollywood Bowl! It was so much fun and Neil did not disappoint! He sang some of his new stuff but for sure rocked out to the classics - Forever in Blue Jeans - my favorite!!! Big thanks to Amber and Melanie for putting this together! It was such a great concert! The Hollywood Bowl is so much fun - if you haven't been you should go! Can't wait until the next concert!!!
