my beloved couples costume party
once we busted out the dry ice and kicked out the kids we were anxious for our friends' arrival in their hilarious & AWESOME costumes. we enjoyed supremely DELICIOUS food--everyone pitched in and produced well. our friends are so wonderful--i even took a quick moment to TRY to express my sentiment to them but they mocked me and told me to get on with the costume contest results. which are: "how'd you come up with that" award to Audrey as mike from monsters inc. the "they are TOO funny" award to Mike & Melanie as Napoleon Dynamite & Pedro. the "ahh they're so cute" award (3 way tie) to Dave & Cindy as pirates AND Jared & I as ninja/geisha girl AND Darrin & Holly as Phantom and Christine. and finally the "they SO deserve the trophy award went to Turtle (Marcus) and Dani as Gene Simmons and the KISS groupie. My dear goodness it was such a fun nite. i will always remember that in the mad rush of last minute cleaning and painting my face, i paused and thought that i was so grateful for the wonderful people that surround jared and i; and i couldn't wait to just hang out with them and enjoy their company. i couldn't have asked for anything more--well we did miss the 8 couples who couldn't make it but thankfully we'll do all this again next halloween.
