Last Saturday, the 14th, Mikelle ran her first half marathon. It was called "Run From the Sun" and it was to help fight skin cancer. She ran through Downtown Mesa, and got to run right by the Mesa Temple. We were both training to do the San Antonio Marathon/Half Marathon but Bobby hurt his leg, then lost his job, so to save money we cancelled the trip to TX. (Things are looking good on the job front though with lots of interviews!). Anyways, the race went well. Mikelle finished in a faster time than expected!! The weather was great, with a little rain even to keep the runners cool. Bobby, Jackson and Kristin came to support the whole time. Aunt Kristin said it was too cute as Jackson would yell run and also run along side runners as they passed him on the race loop!! Mom and dad also came to cheer her into the finish line. She was grateful for her cheering section. Going up and down stairs the next two days were a little rough, but other that she had a great time and is glad she did it, although she's not sure she wants to continue running such far distances!!

Grandma Halterman came too. She wasn't planning on staying, but she just can't resist us! She was wearing her Elmo shirt, and looked so cute! Jackson loves Elmo, he calls him Melmo. He just kept pointing and saying Melmo all night. Plus, he still wasn't too sure about his parents costumes, so Grandma and Aunt Kristin got to have lots of Jackson cuddle time.

Kristin , April Brimhall and one of their friends, Lindy all came down for the night. They dressed as black widows. Cute and sexy! We dragged them along to our party and trick-or-treating before their REAL party started! And all the boys were checking them out!

Jackson was Beast, 1960's comic book version. And of course, no one knew who he was, except Bobby and that was all that mattered! Jackson's costume was simple, although we probably worked the hardest on it, but Bobby still though Jackson looked awesome. Again, that was all that mattered! This was Bobby's Halloween. So, is Halloween really just for kids?

Here is Bobby as Wolverine and Mikelle as Phoenix. They are from the comic books, just like Bobby wanted. On Halloween we went to our ward Halloween party, then trick-or-treating. We had a lot of fun, and of course a lot of comments on our costumes, although very few people knew who Mikelle was supposed to be. Oh well.

So we have been slow to get Halloween up, but I think most of you have seen it on Facebook anyways. Before the pictures of the costumes, just a cute picture of how much Jackson loves candy! He got to trick-or-treat at our local library the Tuesday before and he couldn't get enough. He loves suckers but in this pictures he is trying a tootsie roll, yum!
