Adult Halloween Party

We went to the annual Arnold Halloween party again this year. Randy and I decided to go as Mary Poppins and Bert. We found 90% of our costumes at the D.I. I made a parrot at the bottom of an umbrella by using paper mache and then painted it to look like a bird. I made my hat out of baskets and flowers I found at the D.I. Bert and Mary. aka Randy and Heather
The "Yup Yups" aka Tina and Ryan
Pac-Man couple aka Alison and John
Wanda the drunk and Al Lubel (from our cruise ship) aka Wendy and Joe- the host couple
Sarah and Chuck (from the TV show Chuck) aka Rachelle and Steve Yes, Rachelle was packing a real gun. Freaking awesome.
Little red riding hood and the wolf aka Evelyn and Sebastian

The avatars aka Justin and Nancy

Yeah, they pretty much blew us out of the water for best costume. I couldn't believe she made nearly everything except for the wigs (which they braided themselves) and they bought the ears. Someday Randy and I will win best costume! We did get 2 of the 14 votes though, so that says something right?The desert I made. Chocolate niece with skulls and spider webs.
I took a couple of pictures after we got home. Yes, my eyelashes are falling off at this point, and half my makeup is smudged off.

Pretty sweet though right? Randy did not want to pose for a picture at 1:00 in the morning. Go figure.

Thanks Mom and Dad for watching the kids overnight for us! Especially since our sweet Lily Bean was throwing up and so sick. We love you!

I also need to thank my awesome friend Melissa for coming over and helping me do my retarded hair and attach that blasted basket to my head. She did a great job especially considering what she had to work with. Thanks Melissa!

Trunk or Treat pictures

We attended our ward trunk or treat last night. It was really fun and lily's costume was a big hit. Everybody loved it. Most everyone guessed what she was,but some weren't so sure. It was cold, but not as cold as last year (about 35 degrees last night). We had hot chocolate and doughnuts and had a great time looking at other people's costumes.
Jakey as..Spiderman!

Tyler...the green Power ranger.
Lily as...Cindy Lou Who
Spider-man, Cindy lou who, and a Green Power Ranger

Hanging out in the back of the van..I guess it has creepy looking lights from the camera flash.

Jakey Says...

We attended Regional conference today at the stake center. When Randy's dad Rick called to say hello, he was talking to Tyler and asked about who spoke in conference. Tyler told him that he drew a picture of president Uchtorf and Elder Nelson also spoke. when it was Jake's turn to talk to grandpa, he said "Hey grandpa, I watched President Monson-packer today!"

At least he was in the right ballpark right?

Cruise 2010 on the "Fun Ship"

We went on our 5 day cruise with 5 of our favorite couples and had a great time. I won't bore you with the details of everything that happened, but I did put most of our pictures on this post
