The Sat. Morn. Post, Vol. 16 - Recent Events

Hi friends. I finally found some time to post something. Here are some recent events in my busy life that also show - despite how hectic things are - that I still have fun with my family.

My wife Laura and I were invited to a Halloween costume party on the Saturday before Halloween. We had a lot of fun, and enjoyed spending time with our friends. I dressed as a 60's hippie, and Laura was a referee. I've only posted a couple of pictures here, but many more were taken of our friends in their costumes.

This is one of those self-photos Laura is fond of. As you can see, the top of my head was cut off, but this one was the best of the bunch. Peace, out.

On the Friday night before Halloween, Nina and some of her cheerleader friends came over to our house to carve pumpkins, decorate cupcakes, and otherwise create much noise and a huge mess. Nina is in the back on the left.

This past weekend, the cheerleader conference competition took place. All of the other cheerleading squads from within the conference compete against each other by division. This is the highlight of the season for the girls. Here is Nina (2nd from the left) and some of her friends before competition started.

Inside the arena, parents, family members, and some of the football players (the boys that the girls cheer for during games throughout the season) watch the competition and cheer for their girls. Teams typically sit together in a group wearing their team colors. Here is our group from La Habra, and yes, that's me holding a sign for Nina. The La Habra sign is actually 3 signs being held (crooked) by 3 people.

After each division is done, the girls go into the stands and get flowers from their families. The girl to the left of Nina is our squad's best cheerleader in both ability and attitude. Unfortunately, she fell during the routine, but immediately got up and continued as if nothing happened. What a trouper!
Well, that's it for this week. I'll try to post again next Saturday morning. Take care . . .
