Grandma Mad invited us to her work's Trunk or Treat event. We met the Adams, the Paynes, and friends at Chick-Fil-A for a quick bite to eat before heading to AutoLiv.
Every year they close off their parking lot and the employees park their cars and decorate their trunks and invite their families to come and go around to collect oodles of candy. But when we arrived at the "ideal" time, all of Ogden must have go the memo...the line wrapped all around the entire lot...it took us an hour to get to the actual entrance.
But it was worth it.

With the fog machine on "high", an assortment of homemade soups, lots of fresh-from-the-oven breadsticks, and more desserts than we could all eat, the annual
Roundy Family Halloween Party
was in full swing on Saturday, October 23rd. The weather was iffy all day long, and though the kids had to do their carnival games inside, it cleared up enough for the costume parade to be held outside.
Thanks to Mike and Mad
for hosting another great party!

It was Red Ribbon Week at our school. They held an art contest for all kids, K-6th grade to enter. The theme this year was "Why I Choose to Be Drug Free".
My kids each worked on something to enter. Liv, Ian, and Mags drew a picture but Jake opted to make a "Happy Box" claymation movie for his entry. All 4 of them won in their grades.
Jake - 1st Place
Maggie - 1st Place
Olivia - 1st Place
Ian - Honorable Mention
Hard to believe this is our last Halloween program at Montessori. Mrs. Call commented to me that everything this year with Maggie is "it" for the reign of the Roundys at her school. (We've obviously been going to this school a long time when I know every lyric to all 10 Halloween songs that the kids sang.)
I'll miss having my kids attend the school when Maggie finally graduates in the spring, but I am really ready to move on as well. But I have so appreciated what the school has taught my kids over the years.
