First of all, I need to say that I really dislike this new version of the Blogger editor.  WHY do companies think it's cool to "FIX" things that do not need "FIXING"??  Really?  What was wrong with the old version?  Nothing, that's what!  Now I've got this new version that's all stupid and I have no clue how to make my posts look the way I want.  The pictures and words are all wonky, and I DO NOT LIKE IT!!!  Lame.  Just lame.  ANYWAY!  The kids and I ventured up to the top of a hill here in Kodiak that is famous for it's huge windmills.  It's pretty smart of this town, actually, to have these things on top of this hill.  They can totally take advantage of the outrageous winds we get here sometimes (well, often) and use it to make electricity!  Smart.  So, they're cool, and we drove up to see them in person.  They were quite impressive.  I looked directly up at one and almost fell over because it made me dizzy!  The view was really neat, and it was a new adventure for us.  Yay!  :)

Last night was Halloween!  We had a super fun time trick-or-treating around our neighborhood.  It wasn't snowing or raining, but it sure was chilly!  Nate was Luke Skywalker, but not just any Luke Skywalker.  He was "Tatooine Luke Skywalker".  You, know, because there's more than just one period in his life that one can portray.  Ha!  Stay tuned and see what Star Wars guy he'll be next year!  :)We carved pumpkins.Not too impressed by the "guts".Ewww!  (I finished it up for them.)The pumpkins!  They drew the faces on themselves.Luke.  Apparently "Tatooine Luke" doesn't have a lightsaber yet.  He has a blaster, duh!!So cute together!Do a little dance!The scariest neighbors ever.Quite a motley crew.A pretty mermaid!Look at our loot!Gotta have a piece...Mom got all the Almond FAVE!!!  Happy Halloween!
