Well, the Halloween party was a success!!! I think we pulled in a little over a hundred and fifty people.This was the beginning of the night when people met at my house. Back row: Dave, Adam (Aaron's rommate) Kellyanne, Aaron, and front is Cindy....the evil jester!!!!
Dave was a butterfly catcher and Kellyanne was the butterfly....isn't that sweet?!?!? he lost his net though.......

My costume turned out great, I thought, for being pieced together like it was. Thank you, Sissy, for making such a cute tail for me!!!!!!! And Ryan, Oh my sweet baby, he doesn't pull off blonde very well, but I think the dress looked fabulous!!!!
This is Ryan, Bobby Blue (the main host of the party,) and Mark Kirby (Shawn Kirby's dad.)Aaron, me and Ryan....I mean, Alice :-)

I was really happy that Jen came with some of her friends. Ryan and I also had several friends from out of town here for the party. It was lots of fun!!!

Jen was a big bunch of grapes...her costume rocked!!!
And, we had The Spartan Cheerleaders from Saturday Night Live....gotta love it!!!


This is Kellyanne and me...we had so much fun together. I love it when we can all hang out together. I kept trying to tilt my head down when people were taking my picture so you could see the face on my cat head, but it was hard not to look at the camera when it was pointed at me. I'm still not sure if there are any pictures where you can really see my whole head or not.This guy's name was Brett. I had never met him before that night, but we had a blast together!!! His face was just a little higher than mine, but his costume was probably about eight feet tall.My friend Julie dressed up as Mother Nature.....she made her dress. It was awesome!!! She did a great job!!! She also carried a little pet squirrel in her purse all night long!!My baby and his magic don't even want to know what was in there!!! But one thing is for sure....... it got ya drunk!!!

This is Cindy and me. She loved her costume because no one knew who she was. I've always called her my sneaky neighbor :-)I had to post a picture of Nick Bankowski. He is so freakin' hot!!!!! You know I spanked his monkey all night long....oh, I'm so bad........................Just look at those could anyone resist those!?!?!?
Don't worry....I'm allowed to have a couple guilty pleasures per Ryan, so I've got that covered with Nick and Eric from Ekoostik Hookah!!This is Nick Reynolds in his cute little woopie cushion costume. I gave him a big hug when I saw him, and he farted. Then he said that was just part of the costume....He's like having a bratty little brother around!!!

Here's our buddy Jamie Raderstorf....he passed out by the bonfire, and of course, we had to pick on him a little. We were pretty kind, actually. The only thing we did was stick this leaf in his mouth......and his nose. He didn't seem to be bothered by it though!!!
This was the last picture of me and Ryan for the night. He told me I looked like my eyes were all bruised up. Apparently, I had been rubbing my face a lot or something......It was completely pink when I started!!!!

I'm pretty sure it was about 8:00 am when this was taken. Ryan and I made it until almost 9:00. I wasn't planning on staying up that late, but when I realized it was 6:30 already, and I was still sitting by the fire, I decided I could make it a couple more hours to help start waking people up that had to work.

I woke Cindy up at 7:15 because she had to work at 8:00. Nick finally came in from the fire then and pulled Ashley up off the floor and they crawled into the bed where Cindy had been. Then, at 8:00, we had to wake up Dave and Kellyanne because they had to be in Indy early for their daughter's cheerleading competition. Aaron kinda perked up off the loveseat and asked if there was another bed free. That love seat wasn't much of a bed for cousin Aaron :-) Then, we finally pulled Jamie off the floor in the living room and got him on the loveseat where Aaron had been.

We still had people on the floor in the living room and in the kitchen, but everyone at least had some cushions or an air mattress under them, so I felt better.

I don't know how they did it, but most eveyone was up and out of the house by about 2:00. I didn't even move until almost 7:30 Saturday night. I wasn't hung over....I was just exhausted.

Now I'm ready to do it all over again next mark your calendars!!!!

I have a guy wearing a woopie custion on my blog! I looked it up and thought it would be funny!

I did have a blast. I've already marked my calender for next year. Ok I'm really curious, I did drink some of Alice's potion so what was in it?

I love your costume Allison! I should've known you'd be sporting a tail!

I don't know if Jenny told you, but me, mom and the boys came by there about 11:30. We drove around looking for you :)

We saw Ryan, he offered his candy to the boys. That was sweet. I'm glad I didn't drink whatever that was when he offered!! :]

Time to start planning your costume for next year!!!

Jen said...

Wish I could have been there. Halloween wasn't too much fun here this year.

s-hooks said...

Why did I think Julie was Liz?

Bit-maybe you should plan to be here next Halloween! :)

Well, to be sure, yer party was more successful than ours. Three people showed up....and one of them was a designated driver, so, for two years in a row, we've had two official guests fer the party.

Some folks get on us about it being in the middle of the week.
"No," we answer, "it was on the 31st of October."

That IS when Halloween is, y'know?

Cool lookin' party! Then again, I'll betcha a fast five bucks ours cleaned up faster'n yers.

alli-gal said...

Yes, Bo, you're right....we STILL haven't gotten everything cleaned up............But it was worth it!!!
