We "tried" to pull off a surprise 16th birthday party for Chace and our neighbor, Hannah Nelson (she's 9 days older than Chace). We told them it was an "End of the Season, Volleyball/Football Party". I think Chace got a little suspicious when he realized his Dad (the head football coach) was going to be out of town today. He says he was surprised, but that may have been just to make me feel good. Even if it wasn't a surprise, we all had a lot of fun!!
Huge card game of "SCUM" (nightly ritual at
the Tenney home)
Hannah & Cassie rocked on Guitar Hero
Danny & Taylor (Danny was definitely the "expert" of the group)

I have NEVER been a "fun" halloween mom. To put it nicely, "I HATE HALLOWEEN!!" I don't sew, I'm not crafty and creative, so my kids always pretty much get the shaft when it comes to cool costumes. We still had a pretty fun night though - Our Chamber of Commerce and Transnation Title/US Mortgage Source put on a HUGE halloween party (trunk or treat) out at Bison Ranch. The kids got tons of candy, free hot dogs, chili, hot cocoa, etc. Then they had free hay rides, a cake walk, costume contests, etc. It was actually an enjoyable night for us all!

I know many of you have been wondering why I did a post over a month ago, and then haven't done anything since?? The camera had been lost now for almost two weeks. I just wasn't asking the right people, because when I finally mentioned it being lost to Ron, he knew right where it was!!
This coming weekend (Nov. 2nd and 3rd) is State Volleyball and the semi-final game for football. Hopefully I can keep track of the camera and get some good pictures of the kids in their games. I'll try not to let another month pass before I get another post done.

ALL of us had such a blast!! The kids just can't seem to get enough of him. I wish I had a dollar for everytime one of us said, "HE'S SO CUTE!!" I'm sure it was probably around 100 times.

Maryssa had her first orchestra concert of this year on October 18th, 2007. Their 6th grade orchestra class lost a few members from last year and had no bass cello players. So, Mr. Cheney asked Maryssa to switch from the violin to the bass. The instrument is almost twice her size, but she did an AWESOME JOB!!
This was Madden's first orchestra concert as well!!

Trey had his Pee Wee Wrestling tourney on October 11th, 2007. Not sure he actually "WON" many matches, but I love the way Coach Porter(s) run things. They just let the boys all wrestle three rounds, all for the same amount of time, no score is kept, and then both wrestlers get their hands raised for winning at the end. I might actually like High School wrestling if they did it that way!! I HATE seeing my boys lose. I keep trying to learn to like wrestling, but it's just not happening?!!
