Goodbye October...Hello November!

DG Formal
Richie and I and my beautiful flowers he gave me before formal.
A good portion of the seniors! I can't believe that was my second to last formal!

We spent Halloween night at Scott Nelson's cabin playing games, going on a midnight hike and laughing till our stomachs hurt. We were dressed up as jail birds but we had to put on some warmer clothes to go on a midnight hike up to some mine caves. Scott sure does know his way around in the dark, I think everyone was amazed we found it. All we had was one little headlight, but we made it in the dark, in the rain. The cave was really neat so it was well worth the hike.
Happy November 1st!
Richie's pumpkin turned out to be a lot better than mine. I don't know why but I thought polka dots would look really cool, but it really didn't turn out like I planned. I think they need to be smaller next time.

Two weekends ago, we went up to my cabin in Monte Cristo with Richie's roomates Ben and Buzz and their two friends Laura and April. There were so many funny things that happened this trip along with a good game of apples to apples, Reeses smores (thanks for the idea Ashley! They were amazing), and some good story telling. We made good friends with one of the servers at the Jackson Inn Cafe in Huntsville. Go visit him, his name is Wyatt.

A couple of weeks ago, Trish, Sallee, Sissy, my mom and I made carmel apples and carmel chocolate covered pretzels. We learned that it is a lot harder than it looks to make a carmel apple. We dipped the apple in carmel, then white chocolate and then cinnamon sugar. They were a lot like Rocky Mountains, but we agreed they tasted better. 
The apples...
The pretzels...
