Just a little harmless fun

Thanks to all who voted for a costume idea in my first ever blog poll. Unfortunately, I was unable to convince Steve to shave his chest and don a speedo. Fortunately, with only 24 hours before the big party we were able to secure most of our costume pieces including the free walker at the local Salvation Army. I made a last minute attempt to educate myself in the art of stage make-up via youtube, and apparently my attempts to accentuate my fine lines and wrinkles left me looking more like a lion than a woman with lots of life experience. 

Perverted old man and saggy casino grandma

Oops, I forgot to take my glasses out of my fanny pack to complete my sexy ensemble. Notice my authentic casino club card conveniently accessible to the slots? And the shoes!?! Ah....felt like walking on a cloud......these are begging to become an integral part of my fall wardrobe.

Nate and Missy as McCain and Palin......even her hair was perfect!!

Jeremy and Amanda as Michael Scott and Pam from The Office.

Brianne and Jimmy-T

The fabulous hosts, Troy and Mary as Zorro and Elena? (Zorro's girl)

There were many other fabulous costumes, an amazing spread of ghoulish treats, and lots of laughs. Friends are such a blessing! Can I do that? Can I use the word "blessing" in a post about a "wicked" Halloween party? Get over it.

You guys really look great! So creative, I love it.

What fun friends you have. That Palin is spot on, wow!

Oh. And in response to your last comment- I NEVER read all the comments on other blogs before leaving mine. I've often thought, "I'm probably totally repeating someone else word for word." I'm just too lazy to read all the comments.
