Halloween Carnival Part 1

The events that I put on remind me of planning a wedding. So many months of preparation, and it is all over in one day. Friday was the Halloween Carnival at The Center, and it went so good! We had over 1,000 people come to the event.

Here is the walk through of the Alice in Wonderland Activity Maze:

The Door Room ~ When you enter Alice in Wonderland, the first room you come to is the door room. In the middle of the room is a table with "eat me" cakes and "drink me" drinks :) Each kid got their own and were told to take a bite so we could fit through the "little door". Then the kids were asked which door was the right door to go through. The white rabbit then opens the right door, but behind the door is a smaller door, and then an even smaller door. Just the right size for the kids to walk right through. (The adults had to duck through :)


The Flower Garden ~ After you go through the door, you are in the flower garden. There was a musical piano on the floor and all of the decorations were musical toys.

The Caterpillar ~ The next room is where you can find the caterpillar. As you walk by you can reach out and pop the fog bubbles! The kids loved popping the bubbles and watching the fog disperse.

Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum ~ You then get to hear a skit from the Tweedles and pick an oyster to win a prize!

The Cheshire Cat~ You then head into the forest where the Cheshire Cat is. He is always pulling pranks, so be careful he might spray you with silly string!


Mad Hatter and Alice~ The kids then get to join the Mad Hatter and Alice at their tea party. They were able to sit at the table and make their own Italian soda. It was a very merry unbirthday.

The Red Queen~ You then walk through the hedge maze that leads you to the Red Queen. The kids get to play croquet with a flamingo and a hedge hog, and if they miss "then off with their heads". As you exit Wonderland you look through the doorknob and see Alice sleeping on the other side.

China Cabinet

James and I had been looking for a China Cabinet for our nicer dishes. James found this red one from Ikea:

It was just what I wanted but it was red, so James said he would paint it. We picked out a beige color to match our dinning room. Here is the final project. Look what a good job James did!

Skate Park Competition

One of my favorite events to coordinate is a Skate Competition! It is so much fun to watch young kids practice all month long, preparing for the competition. They get so excited when they sign up and get a new skate shirt and they are so nervous while they warm up because they are trying to make sure they land all of their tricks. It is just fun to cheer them on and support them, and give them lots of prizes!

Homecoming Lord

Go Chet!! He won Homecoming Freshman Lord at the Homecoming Assembly today :) I was so happy that I could be there. I literally woke up this morning and drove to Las Vegas, straight to Centennial High School. I made it 5 minutes before the assembly started! It was so much fun to be there. I also realized that it has been 6 years since I have been to a high school assembly... I think I am getting old.

Look at my Mom's cute style :)

My family also went to the football game to cheer on the Royalty Float :)

 After Pictures of the Lord himself :)

Sitting in the bleachers... cute brothers.

I am having so much fun being home... I love just getting to hang out with my siblings.
