Halloween Fun Part Uno

Well, blogger is stupid and these pictures are out of order. But that is ok. You can still get the idea of what we did. Here is Audrey at our Halloween fest that we had at our house. She carved this pumpkin only to break it at the nose and knock the entire face out. She was discouraged but all in all ok. :D

In order from top left to bottom right, Colton's, Anita's, Curtis', and mine. I think they all turned out fairly well.

Colton's pumpkin with a little light in it. His turned out probably the best of everyone's. I say that is because he had a real printed stencil and the rest of us had to free hand.

Audrey trying her best to gut her pumpkin, while Anita is carving hers.

Anita making preparations while Colton instructs.

Curtis with the amazing food he made for everyone. I think we may just have a chef in the family.

Curtis making his first attempts at carving his very first pumpkin ever. He did amazingly well.

Showing off the cook and the food that was prepared.

Audrey making fun of Curtis in the kitchen. He didn't have a clue.

The proud cook.

Nightmare on 13th

So last night our friend Ashton asked us to go with her and a date to Salt Lake City to the Nightmare on 13th attraction. Curtis was all over the idea but I was more than a little hesitant. Ever since I was a little kid I have had an overactive imagination. Scary things and I usually don't do amazingly well. It isn't that I don't like scary things. I am after an adrenaline rush just like the next person. Usually what happens though is I watch/go to a scary thing and then I can't sleep for a week or so. Even as I am typing this there is a story on the history channel about the "skunk ape" which is freaking me out. As a child I was terrified of Big Foot, and this show is almost as terrifying.

Anyway, last night we went to this Nightmare on 13th where I proceeded to get scared out of my pants (not literally). Thankfully now I have a 6'3" husband to hold and protect me when something comes from me from the shadows. Even though it was scary I came out alive and well with Curtis at my side. He is my "protector" that is for sure. I would suggest anyone living on the Wasatch Front...or even Utah for that matter, who wants to get a good scare, should definitely visit Nightmare on 13th. It is only 20 bucks to get in the door for over an hour of chills, thrills, and scariness. I loved it, and I know that my husband did as well. (He didn't even get scared once...what is up with that?)

Here is a picture of us before we even went in. I look terrified.

Welcome to the lives of us, (Curtis and Shae Jackson).  We are newly married and loving life.  Because I (Shae) have blogged a little before I thought it might be fun to start a blog with my husband to keep up with our everyday events and let our families and friends know about what is happening in our lives. I am sure I will probably blog more here than Curtis will, but we will have to wait and see if that really happens.  

This is just the opener, but stick with us I promise it will be interesting.  We live pretty crazy lives.  Halloween is just around the corner and we have some really sweet things planned.  Check back soon.
