Melissa won $10. And it wasn't even her lucky slot - the double diamond.
We stayed at the Treasure Island. It was fun for first-timers, but next time I will want to stay closer to the middle of the strip. The room was beautiful and we had an amazing view of the strip. Too bad I couldn't get a good picture through the glass. You would have liked it.
Monday (the first day) was REALLY rough for me. I don't know why, but I was BEAT. I could barely keep my eyes open. I downed gallons upon gallons of coffee in an attempt to not face plant in to my dinner or a slot machine. My eyes have never been that heavy.
Bed time could not come soon enough.

Okay, Sara. I am ready for round 2. Perhaps we can talk the SMS girls in to having the Christmas Party at a Vietnamese restaurant?
Here we are with our 3-Dayers! They did an amazing thing that weekend and I am proud to call them my friends.
The event (which basically consisted of standing in the street cheering on walkers) was AMAZING! I was inspired, touched and moved to tears on more than a couple of times. Kleenex was everywhere! I highly encourage everyone to look up this event next year and head to a cheer station at least once over the three day weekend. You will get more out of the experience than you can imagine!

Later that night the neighbors gathered at our house to hand out candy - we do it every year. Sara and Austin came costumeless, so we found some accessories for them. What do you think?
Melissa and Josh were headed to a party, so they were all decked out.
All of the girls.
Carly and I were matching flowers.
My mom and I made our costumes. I don't know the exact total, but all three came in under $20 together. Freddy's shirt says "Clark Landscaping". Get it? Even Lola was in on it. I couldn't leave my puppy baby out.
Here is Carly with her first trick-or-treaters. She was either unimpressed or frightened. Good thing Nana was there!
And of course Kinsey and Kasen had to stop by to show off their adorable outfits! Carly loved pulling on Kinsey's pedals.

Check out that gorgeous baptismal gown. I saw it online and wanted it BAD, but Freddy said that I COULD NOT spend $120 on it. So then I found it on ebay for $50 - brand new! Go me!
She can always find the camera, can't she?
She never cried - not once - not even when Uncle Charlie was making strange faces at her.
