So as I was checking my regular blogs this morning there were 3 of them talking about Christmas. What the What? Just so you know, I'm posting right here in my blog that we are still infused with Halloween here at our house. And it's fun!
First off I have to point out that this year I got my decorations up by Oct. 1. We get to enjoy a full month of THESE fun little numbers.
Second, I want to post some pictures of a cute and fun Witch Party that my friend KC put together last Friday Night!
Here is KC herself next to her very cool and very spooky mantle. (BTW, she is the new Ward Activity Chair-- clearly she's the gal for the job!)
I went to the party as the Hawaiian Surfer witch. I was in the midst of sewing (I know, not my brightest idea, right?) a sparkly, purple witch costume for myself, but about an hour before the party I finally gave up. The glue holding the sequins on the fabric was gumming up my needle. I knew I had to come up with something quick. Luckily we had a generic black witches dress, so I jazzed it up with some costume box standbys. My impromptu costume took the prize for most original. Yay for me! Yay for costume boxes! (Just don't ask me what my leis are doing up around my neck - weird)
Melinda, Caroline, Jan and Camille.
We were served appetizers, tomato soup, salad, rolls, stroganoff, and some yummy desserts - one of which was Jeanette's famous chocolate cake. And we didn't have no stinkin' paper plates either. This was a first class affair.
Erin, Jeanette, Erinn, Caroline and Randalynn (oh, and look at Caroline's spider bracelet! So cute (er, I mean creepy). And the best news, she gave one to me too!!!)
Kristine, Shannon, Melinda, Christy
Lay, Jan and Jen
Liz, Christy, KC, Annette and Stef (and of course we can't forget baby ghost, Cruz)
And here is my parting HALLOWEEN shot for you to enjoy. This wasn't really meant to be a decoration, they just happened to be together. It was a $1 section stuffed bat shoved in a $1 section orange bucket. It was sitting on my desk. It was cracking me up and infusing me with halloween joy. I thought maybe you would want to be infused too.
