I'm a little slow getting up our Halloween story, but better late than never eh?
Tazia attended multiple halloween parties, so I got pretty good at doing hair and makeup for Cleopatra...
She looked really good, its better in person, but she came home from 3 different parties where she said everyone asked her who did her hair and make up... and as usual was spotted by a modeling agency. Man do I know how to make that girl look good :)
This was fun ;) Deidre was pebbles and she looked so cute, also better in person!
On the Saturday before Halloween, we held a Halloween party at our place for my mom, aunts, uncles, grandparents and cousins who were old enough to date. It was such a scream! I was nervous about throwing a party, cause I'm really not much of a host but I'm so glad I did it was so much fun! Ben was also skeptic throughout the whole planning process, but after all was said and done he loved it. He even suggested we throw one every year ;) Maybe we will try a different Holiday next year...?
I made sloppy Joe's and just had every one bring a side dish to share. I wish I would have got a picture of it all on the table, we had brains, hearts, Monster cheese balls, and all sorts of good stuff! We played a few games, the winners were given prizes... one game was kind of on going throughout the night. Its called "Don't say that" Everyone couldn't say the word "I" or they had to give up one of their little candies to whom ever caught them, that was fun. We also played the game where you hang donuts from a string and each couple had to eat it off the string, My parents won haha although James and D were probably only a bite behind them

I wish I could have some how seen a little more of everyone, but it was quite hillarious
Even better than the Donut game was the balloon game. Each couple had to take turns being blindfolded and led to a balloon that they then blew up. The couple had to pop it by hugging ;) So stinking funny! Ben and I were rolling on the ground laughing so hard. If it wasn't so dark this would have been on video for sure it was so much fun, probably the best part of the whole night. Here are some pics:
Everyone all lined up ready to go
Taz and Cody are the first to their balloon
Justin and Sjana, ready to pop their balloon
Mom trying to tie hers
Or not... they were harder to pop than they thought ;)
Sjana in hysteria while Justin is working hard for the prize
Tazia and Cody on their last stretch! And they were the winners!
It was the most hilarious thing to watch, I highly recommend this game! We had so much fun, and it turned out just perfect. Everyone was so awesome and helped clean up, I didn't have too much to do after they left. Loved it!
So on Halloween, Ben and I both had to work, but we made it over to the Ferg's for dinner with friends. There were some delicious soups and yummy treats and of course wonderful company! It was a good Halloween all in all. My favorite time of year ;)
