Lawn Ornaments

Wade had his heart set on being half man half deer for Halloweeen but I just wasn’t sure how I’d pull a costume like that off so instead he got to go as a much easier to make lawn gnome and I got to be a flamingo. I wish I could wear pink feathers and sparkles every day, but since I can't Halloween will have to do. Wade sure makes a handsome lawn gnome!

We don’t get many trick-or-treaters up in the attic so Halloween night would have been boring if not for Matt and Candice, or Satan and his beautiful fairy wife who threw a fabulous Halloween Party.

Lots of our favorite Denver friends were there looking fabulous in there creative and festive attire.

Ryan as the presenter of the Publisher’s Clearing House check and Teri as the unexpecting recipient.

And here are Jenny, Mark, and their little bun in the oven.
These ladies all look fabulous. Erin as Jem from the much loved 80’s cartoon. Kasey as a china doll. And Tina as Rowdy Roddy Piper, a wrestler from the 80’s.

Although fun games were planned for the whole evening,

Wade spent most of the night just talking politics with Michael. He did however participate in the pinata contest. See pictures below.

There was so much to do at the party that it was hard to fit it all in. One of the activities that didn’t get as much attention as it deserved was the Cooking decorating contest. I don’t think anyone won – we all ate our cookies too fast.

Here are Phil and Arianne working on their pumpkin for the pumpkin carving contest.

I carved a pumpkin too but I liked the side that looked like a bum better than the face I put in the other side. Had my creative juices been flowing I would have carved a cute little thong for that crack.

The pinata contest drew a crowd but as the 3rd person in line Wade spoiled all the fun he took one whack and decapitated the little pirate pinata. Sorry friends.

We had a fun, fun, fun Halloween. Thank you Matt and Candice!!!

Tunk or Treat

This is Clark Kent, aka: Superman, aka: it's a bird, it's a plane, nope - just Wade. This was taken just before flying off to Trunk or Treat on Saturday night. Wade was a big hit with children and adults as he handed out full 6" chocolate cakes to the trick-or-treaters.
