Frightfully Splendid

Things have been going really well lately :). Like most of you, I made the best of my Halloween weekend. Thursday was an extensive trip to town at night to try to score a cool costume with Amanda and Julie. We scrounged about, finding nothing but ordinary, lame costumes with high pricetags. However... when we were almost ready to throw in the white flag, I stumbled across three Elmo costumes. These were TODDLER sized, mind you, and they were meant to be a dress, but on us, the result was a bellyshirt. For the price of about $12, we felt like they were a pretty sick deal. I mean who doesn't want to be a part of an elmo gang? The whole night was pretty fun, and here are some pictures from it :).

Yeah, we have too much fun :P! The next night we were planning on seeing Saw V, but we couldn't get there in time. Instead we drove around Glens Falls. It was Julie, Amanda, John, Jenna(we kidnapped her along the way!), and Amber. She's this wicked cool girl from where Greg, Julie's older brother, goes to college. Afterwards we all stayed over at Julie's house to hang out. That was pretty fun :). Fright Fest was on the agenda for Saturday, which was the same crew of us, plus Greg, Tom, and his two friends Zack and Wormy. I had a good time, I was with Amanda, Amber, John, Greg, and their older half sister, Kratia for most of the time. Amanda, Amber and I walked around holding hands most of the time, because we're cool like that :). I love all the rides, except for when we got stuck on this one roller coaster, that scared me. Luckily it was only for 10 minutes, maybe less, and we went on it all over again later, hahah. Lot's of laughs and good times there :). Hopefully I can remember to upload some pictures later, but Amanda currently has my camera.

I spent my Saturday night at their house again, which was fun, again :P. I love being with friends. Sunday I left though, to practice driving for my roadtest. Tom accompanied me and my mom, and we went to the mall for literally 10 minutes, haha. School wasn't so bad today, it kinda flew. I'm really liking the feeling of not having to go to soccer :P. It gives me so much more time to enjoy my day. I spent the rest of it working with Tom, it was a good day.

Haha, I love being crafty. XD And even though I didn't do a hot job on the cake, it was pretty fun to make with friends. And maybe our revolution has already happened for our generation, and if it hasn't, I wonder what ours will be too.

Haha, dressing up in silly attires seem so much fun. I'm glad you're Halloween went well! And soccer definitely gives you more time to the day, especially when you don't have to go to practices 4 days a week. Are you doing indoor soccer? And I love when days fly by in school! Hope you have a good week!

Ahahaha, those Elmo costumes are amazing! Only twelve bucks to be a part of the coolest gang around :D I like the Superman one a lot too. Actually all of the costumes are amazing! It looks like you had a blast. I would have been really freaked out getting stuck on the roller coaster, but at least it only lasted 10 minutes. I'm always worried I'll get stuck upside down or something crazy like that :P

I hope you have a great rest of the week! (:
