THRILLER!!! Also known as the night I wont forget!!!

So, tonight was the big night... Thriller at Tuacahn. I have been 3 times before and LOVE it with the exception of the zombies. They freak me out so bad and I don't know why.

I think it's cuz they are real people and can touch me. Anyhow, I was going to be tough and not cry this year. That didn't work out so well. "Mister Limber" found us before the show in our seats and breathed on me for like 45 minutes. (Yes, Chanieca is holding his's actually attached to his body) During intermission, I really needed to use the bathroom, no problem, Yvette will go with me.... PROBLEM... I lost her when we got done in the bathroom and I surely was NOT going back to our seats without someone to hide behind. So, I called Randy and he came up to protect me.
As you know, I don't like being called a baby, so after the show, I agreed to a photo with a zombie as long as I was on the end. Well, it didn't quite work out that way. In the group photo with "Mister Limber" is Zach, Emily, me (yelling "HURRY"), Jeff, Chanieca, Megan, Addison, Yvette and Mike. Randy was taking the picture. That's when Emily had a GREAT idea, "I'll take a picture of you and Randy together with the zombie". Not wanting to be a big baby, I agreed. BIG MISTAKE!!!
They REALLY freak me out.
I am actually crying in these photos and Randy is so concerned for the well being of my mental health.

Don't these pictures make you want to go to the show?

Anyhow, we had a great time, despite my temporary black outs from fear. We have the funnest friends in the world!!!

Thanks to Jim and Peggy for tending the kids VERY LATE. We appreciate it SO MUCH!!! Thanks to Chanieca for getting us cheap tickets and thanks to the zombies for making me pee my pants!!! If you click on these photos, it enlarges them and you can get a really good look at a 31 year old, thinking she is going to die!!!

I bet the Zombies had so much fun with you. I am proud of you for getting your pictures with them. I am not saying that as a joke either. I hope you guys have a fun halloween.

I've never been to Thriller and I don't think I want to go. Hyrum went with my sis in law and came home scared and had nightmares. Um, did you have night mares? Funny pics Hope
