I have always loved holidays! I like to decorate and do "festive" things for each of the holidays. I don't know why, I just have always liked being festive. Yesterday in our faculty meeting, one of the special needs teachers had on a jack-o-lantern pin, and it made me remember having some holiday pins when I was a kid. I think my mom bought them at Hallmark or somewhere like that. I had a jack-o-lantern one, a Santa, a turkey, a rabbit, and maybe a Valentine one. Anyway, I liked to wear them to school when I was in elementary school. Now, I like to wear "festive" shirts to school for each of the seasons or holidays. I also like to do "festive" activities with my classes at school--yes, even with "too cool" high school students!

I also like to dress up for Halloween! Luckily, I have an excuse to still dress up at my age. My drill team has a Halloween party each year where they can bring a date or a friend. So, I dress up for it. When I was single, there was always a big Singles Halloween dance that was one of the biggest dances of the year. My friends and I always dressed up for it! We had a lot of fun! In college, I also remember SUU having a Halloween dance that was also a big dance. Of course, my roommates and I dressed up for that as well. I even won the costume contest at work--my roommate and I dressed up as "Tweedle Dee and Twiddle Dum". (Thank goodness for old drill team costumes).

Here are some pictures of Scott and I from past Halloween parties. Scott didn't know that by marrying me, he would get the opportunity to dress up every Halloween--or maybe he did, since
the first two parties were before we were married. Scott's work also has a costume contest, so he gets to wear his costume to work also!

2003 - Gangster & Flapper Girl

This year we are going as a couple from the 80s going to Prom. We just had the drill team Halloween party last night, so I will post those pictures soon. It was fun!

A New Look

Welcome to the Brenchley's new and improved blog!

Scott started this blog about two years ago and I decided to take it over and try and post a little more often. I don't promise much, but I will try to keep things up to date.

I think it is fun to look at everyone else's blogs, so I decided that I needed to join in on all of the fun.

Here are a few pictures of us at Payson Lakes. My family had a picnic there at the end of September.
