Happy Halloween, everyone!
Saturday night, Danny and I went to my dad’s Halloween party. I think it’s like his 100th annual Halloween party – he’s old.
We started on our costumes in the afternoon. Mine was easy but for Danny’s costume, he had to buy a white t-shirt and an old suit coat that we got to rip, destroy, and spray with blood.
Danny’s costume came out awesome – if I do say so.
Zombie make-up by Heather. I’m thinking about starting a business.
I went as the 80′s – I wore three different costumes all things from the 1980′s. My first costume was Tom Cruise in Risky Business.
My second costume was Ms. Pac-Man. I made Ms. Pac-man using two pieces of yellow poster board and some string because I’m crafty like that.
My last costume was a 1980′s aerobics girl. It was my favorite of the three. Something about that side ponytail. I love it.
By the end of the night, I combined the three, and pretty much looked like the 80′s threw up. Risky Business meets Ms. Pac-Man and does 80′s aerobics.
There were some awesome costumes that night. One of my favorites was my step-mom. She was the girl from Avatar. How awesome is this costume?!
My grandparents stuck to the theme of the Halloween in Wonderland game and came as the Queen of Hearts and the Mad Hatter.
Brad and Katie as Howie and girl #22 from Who Wants to be a Millionaire:
My dad dressed up as Forrest Gump, complete with the Bubba Gump hat and chocolates.
Avatar and Forrest Gump. I think that they were acting out a scene from Avatar, but you never know with these two.
Paul and Crystal had awesome costumes. She came as Flo from Progressive and he came as Mayhem: Hot Babe out Jogging.
Later in the night another Mayhem showed up. You can never have too much Mayhem. Trust me.
The Drewster and Paul:
What happens when Mayhem meets Mayhem meets Progressive? Chaos.
My brother and I ended up being twins. White dress shirts and pink headbands.
My dad and two of his co-workers. My dad looks way too happy here.
Love the gangsta costume. So you wanna be a gangsta.
The gangsta was my dad’s friend from work, Tim. This guy is in the wrong profession, let me tell ya. Instead of sales, he should focus on comedy – he was so freakin’ hilarious.
At one point during the night – it was late – I had taken my giant hoop earrings off and was dancing around with them, pretending they were glasses. Tim just looked at me and gave a nonchalant shake of his head – as in, stop freakin’ dancing with your earrings as glasses, you look so stupid and I am trying to stop you from utter embarrassment.
Then he bit a lightbulb. Yeah, who’s the idiot now? What the frick?
Just kidding, Tim’s awesome. He really did bite a lightbulb though.
Reba and Jake came as Marge and Homer Simpson. So cute. She glued over 400 cotton balls to poster board to make the wig. Crazy! And she made sure that we ran out of ice, so that she could run down to the store and get some, just to show off her costume.
Marcie and my grandpa:
I meet Marcie for the first time that night. She’s one of Danny’s friend’s girlfriend. Super nice. And I must have come off as semi-cool that night because she invited us over for BBQs and football.
Little does she know that in real life, I am nowhere as cool as I appeared to be that night. Like in real life, I won’t make people high-five me all night long. And not just a regular high-five, but a high-five that follows through and high fives on the bottom too.
Yup, I’m pretty sure that I made people do that all night long.
Wait – maybe I am cooler in real life instead.
Nah, in real life I am usually in Mom Mode, so instead of high fiving, I’d probably make you sanitize your hands. I am only cool and fun about two times a year – you know, the two times that I actually go out a year.
Note to anyone out there that wants to be my friend: I’m not nearly as cool in real life that I am in fake life.

I would like to end with this little note:
Dear Guy Who Was Filming While I was Dancing Really Bad to Whatever 80′s Song Happened to be Playing,
Please don’t post on YouTube.
