Halloween Parties.

Monday, October 27, 2008

We have had a blast so far dressing up for Halloween parties! Mark and I went to the annual Halloween party our friends host. It was an 80's murder mystery so we had specific people we were supposed to be. I was Vanity Shuetz (a celebrity photographer) and Mark was George McFly (a karate expert and nintendo game champion). I had to dig deep in the bathroom cupboards to find some hairspray to try and do big hair!
Here's Mark with a signature Karate Kid pose. He looked pretty sweet...with a headband that had either Japanese or Chinese symbols on it and some dark eyeliner (that I put on him of course) and a nintendo shirt. We printed off some nintendo logos and pictures a few hours before the party and I glued them to this shirt with tacky glue! I also helped him pin his pants and roll them at the bottom, in proper 80's style. We had a blast and enjoyed all the great food and company!

Then Saturday night we took the girls to the ward Halloween party. Here's Sydney with her friend Maddy (a.k.a. Batgirl)!

I was so excited for their costumes this year! I actually bought them back in July when we were up in Provo at the bookstore. It was so much fun to dress them up and do their hair...and watch them bounce all over the house! I still need to dress them up and at least attempt to do proper pictures because these will probably always be my favorite Halloween costumes. Neither of them were interested in smiling or staying put for even a few seconds because they wanted to get back to the party...so these are the best pictures for now!

Actually this one turned out pretty cute! They were both pretty tired and came to sit in the trunk to see what candy they got!



Here's one last picture (I know, totally out of order) of the Halloween party Mark and I went to. Don't we all look pretty cool! If you want to see all the cool details (because my friend really put a lot of heart and soul into this party) you can click here to Summer's blog. Everything, right down to the invites was amazing. And the food was soooo good! I think we both came home absolutely stuffed.

You're so lucky - Jason refused to go to the Mystery Dinner we were invited to last year. I was going to go anyway and take my brother Eric, but the kids started to vomit the minute the babysitter and I walked in the door. Bummer.

I want to get Brooke a BYU cheerleader costume. She loved to see your girls in them!

You guys look awesome! Love the hair and the attitude. You should have taken Justin with you, i've been told he looks like the bad guy on the first Karate Kid. The girls look adorable and that was such a good idea to buy their costumes while you were up there.
