Halloween really is my most favorite holiday. It's fun, with no expectations, it's the one time a year you don't give a second look to Harry Potter driving next to you, or a cat at the check out stand in the grocery store. It's the time of year everybody gets to play make believe. It makes me smile and feel happy. I love the creepy decorations and another excuse to have a get together.
This year Tyler and I went as Cheech and Chong, his idea of course. He had to find a costume that allowed him to keep his beard, I can respect that. He was originally going to be the bearded lady, but I didn't know what to be so he came up with this idea and.... I thought it went well. Notice I didn't go for SEXY Chong HAHAHA.
Some of our guest had great costumes, I'll say my favorite were Cindy and her Husband who came as Cards Against Humanity HA! so creative and HYSTERICAL! They must be TRUELY horrible people. Carrie and Hubs came as a witch and.... HER BROOM so clever! Then of course the classic Zombies. I'll say Mark had a beating heart that was showing through his shirt, I thought it was actually part of the costume, but no, it was an app on his cell. Crazy technology I say
Some more of our guest, I didn't post a picture of everybody, it wouldn't have turned out even and that bugs me. But the Joker and his side kick were pretty awesome.
We played some Flip cup and Beer pong. I'll say, I've never seen more than one round of flip cup played, because I've only seen it on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon SO we probably were wrong in making the winner continue. So as the Kib the guy who won the most liked to say,
"even when you win, you loose" as he held up the house by leaning on it!
Some of our guest.. guess who won the most flip cup games there! Cheers Spider man!
The last of our guest to hold, not everybody was here for the group shot
Some Decorations! You know Tyler says I am a hoarder of jars, WELL looks like that pays off when decoration. BOOYA!
October seemed to fly by us. I mean literally I blinked and each weekend was full then over, SO we never made it to the pumpkin patch. BUT we did make it to Wal-Mart, which honestly is where we would have bought our pumpkins from anyhow, the patch would have just been for photos. I'm not paying those prices when I can pay ROLLBACK prices....common!
and they may just be the BEST pumpkin patch pictures EVER!
Presley said she wanted to be Elis this year and OH MY GOD! was she ever the cutest damn Elvis I've ever seen. She said "They should make girl Elvis costumes" and in her dad's infinite wisdom said "Hang on to that costume, when your 18 you can wear it with no tank top underneath it and it will be a girl Elvis Costume" Nice advice dad... nice.
Grace in all her Nerdom was Agent Skully from the X-Files. Of course nobody knew who she was at school, but she didn't care. She totally rocked that FBI badge her uncle made her, AND the red hair her mom gave her!
At School on Halloween day there was the Halloween parade, then after school a Monster Mash Dance! Grace best friend was Moaning Murtle from Harry Potter. So funny, and clever.
There are the girls with their teachers and Presley's nurse. I LOVED Presley's teachers costume. Can you tell who she is? Russell from UP oh it was darling, her vest was even missing a patch!
This year for trick or treating we went to South O to hang out with our friends Frank and Sally. BONUS was my friend Diane lives down there too so we made our way to her house and saw some AWESOME houses on the way back. This shall be our new tradition for Halloween!
