We Did the Monster Mash!

Halloween came and went all too quickly at our house, but it was fun while it lasted. Also, I must mention that we had 3 trick or treaters this year (compared to last years one). My friend Steph and I decided to throw a little Halloween party (costumes were mandatory, which was fun, because it has been a couple of years since I dressed up for Halloween.) We had a fire pit out on our back patio, surrounded by people all night making s'mores and enjoying the rainy weather that we had that night. Inside we had quite the spread of yummy food. Everyone brought meat to grill up, and then they brought a dish to share. Thanks for the participation everyone. To top it all off, we had guitar hero going non-stop throughout the night.

Here are a few pics from the evening (sorry there are so many, but I tried to get pics of everyone that came-and I still missed a few couples).

This is Nate-our resident Holy Man and Kelsey-the cute little Ladybug.
This is my darling nephew Brooks-The Pirate.
All night he was saying "Aaaargh! Give me some candy, Matey!"

This is a pic of my fam. We have Mike and Bridget-the old fogies (who, might I add, won the costume contest). Erin and Bryan-A golfer and her Caddy (as it should be). Me and Mike-I was Partly Cloudy with a Chance of Rain (I am holding a spray bottle in my hand) and Mike was 1/2 of the quirky "Scrubs" duo. Then there is my mom-now I am not sure what she is, but she has on an old Strawberry Shortcake costume that I wore when I was a kid, and then Brooks the Pirate.

Here are all the guys-We have a Candy Bar, Holy Man, JD, Bed Bug (in the back) then Janitor, a Dalmatian, the old fogey in front, Turk, and the Caddy.

This is Mike's brother Dustin-a Cowboy, and his fiancee Kylee-the Indian

Steph and Spencer-Batgirl and TURK (from Scrubs)

Hershey's candy Bars (Jason and Sarah)

Erin and Bryan, again-The LPGA golfer and her Caddy

The girls-Golfer, Partly Cloudy (no rain this time), the Ladybug, Batgirl, Hershey's, Snow White, and a Bed Bug.

Danny, Spencer and Mike-also known as The Janitor, Turk and JD

It's Guy love between two guys!

Snow White and her charming Prince Janitor

Now, that Halloween is over and the spooky decorations are gone, the Thanksgiving decorations are out with full force! I can't help but celebrate one holiday at a time. I love this time of year! I guess the holidays are officially coming, so Happy Holidays everyone.
