This year (2012) we dressed up, last minute, as characters from Saturday Night Live sketches.
Ryan dressed up as Gene Frenkle, better known as: “more cowbell guy.” Check out this link to watch the sketch:
Carrie dressed up as classic Peg, a Justin Timberlake character. Follow this link to see the SNL clip:
We headed out as More Cowbell Guy and Classic Peg with our friends Napoleon Dynamite and Deb. We entered a costume contest at the Forest Lake legion. Some witches won instead of us.

Our heater hasn’t seemed to be working. So instead of fixing it (we do have a call in to our furnace guy but he hasn’t bothered to stop over) Ryan designed and built us a fireplace.
Ferguson Family: Connie, Gary, Ann, Darl, Donna, Tonya, Hugh, Gay Lou and Dick
We traveled to Southern Iowa for the annual Ferguson Family reunion in Tingley. The weather was warm, the food was filling and the company was great.
Ryan, Carrie, Jenny, Connie and Gary
After the reunion we took a roadtrip down memory lane and drove around exploring Gary and Connie’s old stomping grounds.
The pears may have been a little crispy.
We had a few people over for dinner and we made a maple cheesecake with roasted pears for dessert.

Ryan took me along during one of his training “flights.” I sat in the “backseat” of the flight simulator. It was amazing how real it was! I always thought that when he was going to the simulator it was just a computer screen and a joystick.
