Since Halloween fell on a school night, we decided that we'd move our party to the weekend. Our party was SUPER fun! All the costumes were so cute. My sister's was a total scream.....that Christina is such a crazy girl. :) So, now for the fun part ~ PICTURES! Warning, there are a LOT!
This is at the start of our party.....everybody had just gotten into their costumes and we were all congratulating each other on our superb tastes!
I, on the other hand, decided that I would carve a pumpkin this year. I love to make happy faces on my jackos and I love the way this one turned out. I also am very particular about the stem on my pumpkins when choosing them.....after all, one needs a good handle on his lid, right?
Here we have Mr. Meatloaf, looking quite spiffy! He kept pawing at the old timey dog mask taped up to the frig.....like he wanted to wear it or something. But, I couldn't figure out how to get it to stay on his face.....even with his fairly flat snoot, it wouldn't stay put.
Another of the zombie-eyed, shell-nosed pumpkin! *facepalm*
Finally, the fashionably late Miss Faith arrived in her homemade "Spider Queen" outfit. Since she looked so debonair, I suggested a sort of "fashion show" for each girl to show off her costume. Faith volunteered to be first.
Next, I gave the camera to Faith and asked her to take a picture of my sister, Christina and I. Can you tell what Christina is? She announced herself as "The Worlds Worst Fashion Disaster". There was no question about it.....as confirmed by the fact that her outfit gave me an immediate migraine!
Unfortunately, someone called my name right when Faith finished saying "1-2-3-Smile!". On hindsight, I am sure it was planned in advance.....as you'll see by the next picture below...that crazy Christina had a silly plan.
Look what I found when I took the camera from Faith and turned around! OH MY HEAVENS! We all absolutely DIED laughing! Christina always makes us laugh!
After we all picked ourselves up off the floor, it was our sweet Hope's turn and needless to say, Mr. Meatloaf had to be in it with her. Aren't they just the cutest together?
Following Hope was our super cute Lanie! She dressed as a Virginia Tech Hokies Fan! This came very easy to her since she is wild about the Hokies!
And finishing up on the runway was Sarah. She dressed as a princess. Sarah doesn't wear pink very often at all but we all thought it was actually a good color on her and she looked so frilly and fancy!
After a LOT of good food and laughter, we finished the evening with a Conga Line and went all around the dorm.....what a blast we had!
Now, you might be wondering where McKenna and Saige are? First of all, yes they were invited to the party but they both decided not to come. You see, a letter arrived in the mail the morning of the party and it was from a very special young lady.....I thought they had won the lottery the way they reacted to the letter. Turns out, it was from their friend, Isabelle. Once I heard this, I understood their excitement. Isabelle is to be given the prestigious title of Girl Of The Year for 2014 and she was not due to come to the dorm until January 1st but apparently the letter indicated that she is going to be coming early for a visit and this sent McKenna and Saige into a flurry of activity! More on that in my next post.....
