Yes Halloween has come and gone and yes like always Jon did more than expected with this year it was on a Saturday night so Jon not only had a spook alley in the front yard and car port but opened it up to the back yard adding live actors and more props and displays as expected. Also we decieded to advertise it on the community Calandars with several news channels and handed out flyers to the kids school and classrooms. Then decided to to also host a food drive in the hopes that with admission being free, we could get people to donate to the "Utah Food Bank". It ran Friday and Saturday and it was a pretty good success, the turn out was impressive. We Collected about One Hundred pounds of food and Jon got to do what he love this holiday. Jon also made costumes for not only himself (an 8 foot Grim Reaper), but for kason (Flinstones Bam Bam) and Laurissa Transformers (Arcee). Alison was a vampire and sarah was a Mad Scientist.

Well this last weekend Laurissa decided to start her own business. She has been bugging dad for weeks now to help her make a lemonade stand and the day finally came. It is both mobile and well organized, she set off on her first day of business and made $6.00 in 3 hours and boy was she excited. She looks forward to the additions and modifications dad has planned to make the stand more efficient and easier to work out of.
