Then for dinner- a Red Velvet Funnel Cake. And a hot chocolate- because it was freaking cold!
I was dissapointed in the funnel cake- it reminded me of a bandaid. I think the idea of a funnel cake was much better than the real thing. The cream cheese icing on it was pretty good.
Here's a really bad picture of Kansas.
Then, I went to a Pumpkin Patch about 45 minutes away. It was really awesome (and I got a great deal on DealChicken), except for the fifty million bees that were hanging around the food area. Aparently bees really like snow cones. Here I am in the pumpkin patch.
Two of the pumpkins we got:
The pumpkin that my sister designed (and I carved):
The pumpkin I carved for my brother:
There was a small crisis with this pumpkin, which was for the party at his school. I accidentally busted out the bottom of the "H" when I was carving. I finally got some toothpicks in there so that I could get everything back in place, but I was freaking out for a few minutes.
My Sunday School class had a Halloween party. I made these pretzels with a Hug and candy corn melted on there. It was amazing. I got the idea from Pinterest of course.
I also made these witch fingers (chocolate covered pretzels). The fingernail was made from an almond. I got this idea from Pinterest also. I think they turned out great.
The only thing that I didn't like about how they turned out was the knuckles. I tried to draw the knuckles on with a toothpick right after I got done dipping all of them, and it was too runny to set. So I put them in the fridge for a while- and when I got them out, they were too hard and the toothpick wouldn't even make a mark in the chocolate.
This was my costume: Honey Boo Boo!
My mom refashioned my old prom dress to make it shorter and fluffier. And I wrote Honey Boo Boo on my sash just in case people didn't know who I was. I borrowed a pig from my friend's daughter to be Glitzy the pig, and my mom made Glitzy a tutu. My grandmother rolled my hair in foam rollers and I had som crazy curly hair. The crown was fabulous... but I lost it in the mud run. I was too tired to deal with my hair after the party, so I decided to leave it that way for the run. Here I am- Half Mud Runner, Half Honey Boo Boo!
This is me, Shannon, and Casey before the run:
And here we are after the run (with Kathy now):
The Mud Run was super fun. I did not know that there was also mud at the beginning- I thought there was only the mud at the end. Also there was a hay bale obstacle. I did not do as well in the running as I had hoped. I have a lot more training to do before the 10K in March! At the end, the mud pit had a mud mountain that we had to climb. The guys helping us climb the mountain also conveniently helped us slide face first down the mountain. That is where I got the messiest. And then my foot got stuck in the mud. Like all the way to my knee stuck in the mud. That was hilarious. I was pulling my leg from under my thigh and one of my friends got a hold by my knee and it took us quite a while to pull me out. I had a good time and I think I will take my sister next year.
The mud run was at 9:00 in the morning, and the Razorbacks were taking on Ole Miss on the complete opposite side of town at 11:21. So I rushed home from the Mud Run and took a shower and then hurried to the game. I made it there about 1/3 through the first quarter. I was exhausted so the game was not as fun as usual. And then the Hogs lost at the last second. It was sad.
And I forgot the sunscreen. This is what happened:
Raccoon eyes. Awesome.
Does Honey Boo Boo have raccoon eyes? Because I'm dressing up again on Wednesday for work... and this is what my face looks like. Even with a ton of makeup on, you can still see the sunburn. Oh well. The life of having fair skin. This is the second bad sunburn I have had in two weeks. You would think I would learn my lesson...
