More for the Memory Scrapbook

Aaaaah, what a great weekend. Not a lot of sleep going on around here, but life is short and Halloween comes but once a year. Our Halloween party went great, somewhere between 20-25 people (not all of them actually invited by us, mind you.....) There's an episode of How I Met Your Mother called "Nothing Good Happens after 2 am" (love that show) and all I can say is that's probably true. =) Somehow, at the age of 30+, at 2:30 am, quite a few of us may or may not have ended up rolling another friend's house. The main difference between us and a bunch of tweens? Quilted Northern. If this should happen to become a habit I'm going to have to keep some of the cheap stuff on hand. But there was eating and dancing and some seriously awesome costumes and pumpkin painting. We bought a bunch of small pumpkins for people to paint, if they wanted. Quite a few of our attendees are artists we've met at the local galleries, so there were some kick ass pumpkins painted! I'll have to post some pics of some of the great costumes. Our first place costume award went to a friend dressed as Dwight from the Office (and he was SPOT ON) - he even gave out Shrute Bucks. Second place went to our friend Kirk, with his spot on "Dick in a Box" costume. Love it. There's a long, long story about why that's the perfect outfit for this person and how it all came to be - but it's not going to be discussed here!!!

Anyhow, we ended up going to be at 4 am (actually a little after) exhausted but happy it went so well. Pippin was EXHAUSTED! About 9:30 he started laying down in the middle of the floor making people walk around him - it's a good thing his costume was bright red! And anytime someone would take a break from dancing he was in their lap!!! So, he let us sleep until 9 am yesterday and he was basically out all day yesterday. As we were setting our painted pumpkins out in the yard yesterday (turning our front yard into a pumpkin patch) we decided to decorate our friend's car. They had decided to walk home from where we rolled another friend.......so they got "Just Married" signs on their car. It was all too fun.

We left the mess and went out to lunch and shoe shopping. Kitchen cleaning can always wait. Once we did finally clean up the kitchen we had a nice nap before heading back out for more Halloween activities in our neighborhood. Some dinner, some drag races, all in a fun Halloween weekend. Last year on this weekend I ran a marathon, and after missing out on a lot of fun stuff I decided never, ever again would I do that to myself! And all I'm saying is that was a GREAT decision! We're already planning next year's event..........

I laughed so hard when I read the line about Quilted Northern. In this house, I know who's been TPing when the Charmin pack from Costco is suddenly half the size it used to be. Sounds like it was one kick-ass party you hosted.

What a fun sounding weekend. Can't wait to see the pictures - especially of Pippin.

BTW - Tom got a letter from the firm. They were impressed with him but are still interviewing. Hope to know next week. still keep our fingers crossed that we will be Southerns!
