I spent a few entertaining hours at the Kansas Star yesterday afternoon, with 4 other friends. We ALL came out ahead…one hit a $1000 jackpot. We beat the odds and had a lot of fun in the process. We only took a small amount each, about what we would have spent if we’d all went out to a nice dinner and a movie.

Pretty neat place, especially considering it’s at the temporary location. I was also amazed at seeing 30+ friends there, all having fun.
After going to several casinos in Oklahoma, it was fun to see the Kansas Star has the Vegas style slot machines.
Can’t wait to see the final location finished in the next year or so.

Maysen turned 2 and had a couple of special guests at her party…

quite a surprise when Foofa and Toodee walked in. Maysen blew both of her candles out with no trouble.

Lily really liked the Yo Gabba Gabba gang too.

Reagan went to her gymnastics class, which was also having a Halloween costume party…she went as a princess.

None of use knew it before hand, but as the class was concluding they announce Reagan had won “Gymnastics Student of the Month”!

She was very happy and they said that she was chosen not only because of her hard work, but also because she set a good example of other students by listening and staying on track.

Maysen had fun watching her sister.

Matthew was asked to play the bass guitar this year, in the Mulvane High School Jazz Band. He has been playing the electric guitar for a couple of years, but started playing the bass guitar only a couple of months ago. After he got dressed, he looked like a rock star.

Matthew did an excellent job and everyone really enjoyed the concert.
