Halloween Party

Dr. M & I went to a kid-friendly Halloween party yesterday at my old boss’s house. We dressed up, but it turns out that except for our hosts, most of the adults just dressed their kids. Well, we don’t have kids to dress up so we have to spend all that creativity on each other! Dr. M was a Renaissance merchant (he wore this same outfit last week to take his history club students to the local Ren fair) and I was a witchy witch. I just love my Professor McGonagall hat!

We had a nice time, but boy was I exhausted. I knew I wasn’t cut out to be a mother, but watching all the mothers run around chasing toddlers just confirmed it. I did have fun with a couple of twin 18-month old girls. They apparently thought I was their watering hole & just walked up & opened their mouths while eyeing my cup. Fortunately I was drinking water & not any of the hard stuff!



Here are a handful of pics from the day.

  1. Your hubby looks perfect in that outfit! You are not what I think of as witch-like, but you look great anyway.

    Being around kids really does take a LOT of energy - whew! And with a bad shoulder, it's even more taxing. Rest up, yes?

  3. You guys look great and I know the kids appreciated seeing some grown ups dressed up also. I used to rent costumes every so often for parties when I younger...much younger. Ha..still would if I had an occasion for them, like the one you went to.

  4. I think it's fun to dress up. When the kids were little my neighbor and I would get in costume and take the kids around trick or treating.

  6. Loved the photographs. I'm surprised so many parents dressed up as the same thing as their kids. It's hard to believe Halloween is this weekend!

  8. Great family scenario Bug. You folks seem to pay much more attention to this Halloween lark than most Brits.

    My youngest daughter and her two kiddies enjoy it but when MY kids were growing up it was never heard of in England.

    Jolly nice photos. Well done.
