One of my very favorite holidays is Halloween. I’ve always loved dressing up as something really gross or scary and freaking people out. Every year I throw a costume party the Saturday before Halloween. This year I was a demon and Alan was the devil. Sara even came down for the weekend and was Trinity from the Matrix with a side of clown because she was busting out animal balloons all night! My mom won a prize for most creative as she was Queen Elizabeth and VERY realistic! She stole a wig from my grandmother so I think that was what was creative about it! ;-)
I won for scarriest, which is good because that’s what I was going for. If I had dressed up all sexy or cute and won scarriest I would be scared myself. Luckily the two hours of makeup I spent was well worth it. Here’s a picture of Sara on the left and me on the right.
I also spent about two weeks building the haunted house downstairs (that’s actually how I hurt my thumb). I still have it all together and will turn it all back on tonight to try and lure the trick-or-treaters into the maze. We’ll see if they want the candy bad enough ;-). I’d stick a picture up here but I haven’t gotten them all from my friend who was in charge of photos so stay tuned for that. I think a video would do it more justice so I may make one tonight.
