Saturday the 27th of October we woke up bright and early, smeared on our extra orange faces and ran 13.1 gruesome miles. Yes that is snow behind us.
1. I wish I would've trained.
2. I wonder how many more races my source of music will fail?
3. Everything is funner when you're running in a pack of Oompa Loompas.
But let's face it, when you're the slowest Oompa, the pack distances itself quickly.
Once again so happy to see these two! Danny was awesome and came and ran with me at several check points during the race! After the race we all went for Magelby's pancakes because they are li-truh-ly the best in the world.
Later that night we had the Annual O'Smart Halloween Party! One of the funnest nights of the year and thee funnest Halloween party you'll ever go to.
Our entire family's costumes cost a whoppin' $11. Does that make them seem less cool? Probably. But, easy and cheap this year? Yes! Awesome.
I thought about dressing up as the Flintstones in about August because I figured it'd be the only time we could do it. I really wanted to ask Roman if his fam would want to do it with us, but felt like it would be like the time we were getting married 2 weeks apart and I told them we should just do a joint wedding... awkward. I was excited when Roman asked if we cared if they were Barney, Betty and Bam Bam. Perfect! With the current members in our family we had to do it
Ricker and Cher made pretty cute Oompa Loompas!

The rest of the family.
The rest looked cool too, but he was just the cutest little Syndrome I have ever seen.
There were a ton of good costumes this year!
Streaker, Witch and Wilma
Millie the Flapper girl.
Flower, Penguin, Penguin Jr. (dog), and Lady Bug
It's amazing how just adding a little dry ice can turn cranberry juice and Sprite into "Witch's Brew." The grandkids loved stirring it.
Ricker and Cher can throw one heck of a party. The food and entertainment is always an epic scene.
The chili is the best you'll ever taste.
The breadsticks are like a delicious buttery cloud that you're lucky if you've only had thirds. Seriously guys, they are too good!
The games are always entertaining and everyone goes home with prizes. This year there were a lot of clothing items, only one that would fit Danny man. Luckily by some fluke he ended up with it.
Everyone was sent home with one of Ricker and Cher's famous black walnut carmel apples! They are legendary with reason.
Another Smart Halloween Party success!
