Hood Halloween Party

Right before we moved, our neighborhood had an HOA Halloween party that was the bomb. It was the perfect last hurrah for us. We loved it.

Sarah, trying so hard to be a big kid.

Super-hero princesses, Lily and Tessa.
How amazing are these costumes?

Jake, the little vampire.
We were going for more Damon Salvatore, than Edward Cullen.

Cutest little bumblebee ever.

My mom was snapping her fingers and telling Jake to look up at her.
He decided to copy her and looks like he is a Latin dancer.

Karley the owl and Sarah. BFFs :)

Jake really took the pumpkin bowling seriously. He loved knocking all the ghost pins over.

These cute girls are my friend, Melanie's girls, Carley and Josie.

Aren't they pretty? Carley's cheeser kills me.

Rachael taking charge of the hula-hoop toss.

Everyone gathered up for the guessing game prizes and getting ready for the movie.

Alex and Jakey.

Charlie Brown's "The Great Pumpkin".
Kimmy and Tandy made all this happen. It was epic.

Wow, I'm seriously impressed by this party. And I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your kids' costumes! Now THOSE are epic.

I'm just kind of doing some blog catch up and the costumes DID turn out fantastic. I'm sad I didn't get to see them live and in person. I mostly love Jake as the Latin vampire...o man, that was hilarious! I loved the pictures from Silver Lake too. I lived by a Silver Lake in Minnesota and loved it. It reminded me of my great-granpa who would always tell me a funny poem about Silver Lake, since you are dying to know what it is I'll tell you:
When I was traveling to Silver Lake I met a little rattle snake, he fed me so much jelly cake it made my tiny belly ache! Oh I loved that so much. Your post about Silver Lake brought back great memories from Minnesota and my great gpa...thanks!

I can't wait to see your new digs. Your kids getups are adorable. Good job mom...

I made the boys watch The Great Pumpkin - and Jack asked me why the kids were so mean and did he have to keep watching it. We grew up on that show right? It is a classic. Jack can be so insensitive sometimes.

Let's hang soon.

I might have just creeped on your blog for a while. I wish I could say Courtney made me... But I am really glad that Jake is a Damon and not Edward fan. He's pretty cool.
