We won a major award!

Friday night was Colin and Amy's annual Halloween party. Let me tell you, there were some fabulous costumes! Some of these pictures are mine, some I pilfered from friends' Facebook posts. I wish I had more pictures of the decorations because they really go all out!

1 and 2: The food table
3: Aaron was the model for the dead body outline on the floor

1. Amy D was a witch, and her hat mysteriously disappeared in the half block between the party and our house.
2. What does the fox say?
3. Abby was a dead ringer for Sue Sylvester and Bo was Piper from Orange is the New Black.
4. Axl and Slash
5. Dick in a Box
6. Rosie the Riveter

Prize Winners!

1. Miley and Robin
2. Blow-up doll in the creepiest mask ever
3. Beer pong!
4. Up
5. Grand Prize winners, black and white (it's hard to capture in a photo how great this was!)
6. Zipper face (ewwwwww)
7. PiƱata

Our most excellent hosts, Colin & Amy

As for us, I wanted to go as Judge Doom and Jessica Rabbit (based on Aaron's likeness). We did not do that, instead going in the complete opposite direction for me, which turned out to be a good thing because it was seriously cold Friday night.

It went against every fiber of my being: no makeup or jewelry, except for the brooch. 
And oh, my hair! It drove me nuts. was worth it because we won a prize for "Most Artistic."


  1. Yay major award! Well done, Colin and Amy.
