So this years Halloween was pretty laid back for me. I didn't do a party, the girls costumes were store bought (GASP!) and we didn't hand out candy. I know, I know, we're the loser house on the block that set out the box of candy with the 'Take one please' sign on the front step.
I guess now with two busy kids, gone are the days of making up perfect little baggies of treats, counting how many trick or treaters we get and oohing and aahing over everyone's costumes. Soon we'll be where my parents are, hiding in the basement with all the lights off, afraid to get a snack from the fridge in case the light can be seen from the street.
But on a funner note ( I know that's not really a word, I just like the way it sounds), we did get invited to one of our couple friends' party and it was a blast!
This was only about half of the group, the later it got, the more people showed up.
I just loved the girl on the far rights costume. Medusa, snakes in her hair and everything!
Sleazy pilot Ben (mustache was removed the following morning, thank you very much) and myself as a well...I have a few choice adjectives, but lets stick with just stewardess.
And yes, those are gold spray painted boots.
Our friends, Cat & Mad Hatter with Soldier & Flapper Girl
(actually Ang & Ky, with my brother-in-law Aaron & his wife, Stephanie)
Coffee, Tea..Do you like my serving tray? The cups and napkins were glued on:)
The Host, Pharoh Eugene.
I just have to point out that my friend Ang actually MADE this hat!
It was a great night filled with lots of laughs and good times and great people. There's almost nothing better than everyone getting dressed up and out of their comfort zones to make a party.
I can't wait until next year!
Trick or Treat!!
I did Venice's make up for her costume while Giselle was napping and decided that if I could do anything completely for fun for a living it would be make-up. It is SO much fun to play around with!
This was her face when she got to see it.
My little Marie Antoinette.
What an actress!
My little strawberry, Giselle.
Aaaarrrrrr! Pirate Lexie came over with a big bucket of treats for Venice and for a photo op.
(I just love the hoop earrings!)
This face cracks me up every time I see this picture!
First stop, the neighbours house!
An hour later and 2 bags full! What a haul! I love it when people give candy for Giselle even though she's only 8 months old. MINE!
And at the end of the night we had a visit from Kache the Dragon, grrrrrrr!
We missed out on a few of our friends' kids, but hopefully we'll see pics on facebook, hint hint!
