Happy Monday! Thanks for the anniversary wishes and funny wedding and marriage stories. These are the flowers Michael gave me to honor the date. Awwwwwww.
I got another gift last week …. a Halloween gift. Lynn Melling brought me this cookie she found at the grocery store. I love it! I also love Halloween. I think costume parties are a blast and we often have one, but not this year. However I have some great costume pics of some of my friends to share with you.
Heather Burnside was Governor and VP nominee Sarah Palin. She looks pretty official here with John Bachman, don’t you think?
I have no idea who these people are, but the Michael Vick theme won a local contest.
Sick, but clever.
Jenny Murphy as a Wheaties box.
Speaking of cute, here’s our five o’clock producer Kelly Kasparie as Shawn Johnson.
Kelly with JannayTowne (an underage Chinese gymnast) and her boyfriend Harley (as Bella).
During the five o’clock show on Friday Sonya and I did part of the show in costumes. She was a cat and I was a nurse. We didn’t take any pictures because we had to do such a quick change during commercials. It’s probably just as well!
One of my favorite people turns a year older on Halloween … Ms. Courtney Greene! We just had to celebrate her birthday.

My best friend Beth was in town for a ridiculously short visit so she was in on the fun. She’s an attorney in Denver and we were roommates at Drake. I keep trying to convince Beth to move to Des Moines. Maybe you can help me by posting all the great things about the area.
Courtney with Keith & Jenny Murphy
Michael and me

Another special person celebrates a birthday on November 1st …. Dan Winters!!!
We missed Dan’s gathering Saturday afternoon and unfortunately he had to work Saturday and Sunday morning, which cuts down considerably on celebrating. Wish Dan a happy birthday and tell him congrats for winning a regional Emmy for his investigative report “What Lies Beneath.”
