So the costume party was last night and it was very fun! Little Nephew5 had a great time, and he raked in some awesome presents, so all was good. Hubby brought his new camera, so we have some good pictures. But it looks like he stopped taking pictures about halfway in so we missed a lot of people. But I guess that means that he was having too much fun at the party to remember the camera, so maybe that's a good thing. My mom came, too, and it was fun to have her there.
SIL3's house looked SO great. It's decorated beautifully anyway, but they always have it done up for the party, and they do an awesome job. And the food was great--I'm still thinking about the cowboy caviar. The main attraction was the costumes, of course, and I can't believe how creative people get. There was a whole family of jockeys with the horses built into their costumes. Hilarious. There was a Star Wars family. There was Caesar and Cleopatra. Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head. The Grinch. Popeye. And lots of sparkly little girls with wings and tutus. I loved it! Here's some photos:
A was a zombie doctor (awesome) and I was the weird blue witch with the blue hair.
Niece was a super cute little kitten, but her black teeth sort of freaked me out. SIL2 and BIL2 were super cute as Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head...
