Halloween

Halloween is the funnest holiday--and this year was no exception for the West family. Hillary always has a party at her house--and when my my family has parties, there are always 2 things you can count on: delicious food and fun games! But this year we actually played a game where no winners were declared, and we didn't have any fights! We played the Singing Bee and everyone had their turn belting out a familiar tune. I highly recommend this game for family parties--it became more of a sing-a-long than a game. :)

Here's the first group of arrivals.....

L to R: Me (80s roller skater), Mikey (zebra), Pop (Cleopatra), Zoey (Glitter witch), Ally (naughty witch), Carmindy (lamb), Zane (Viking warrior), Hill (festive witch).

Jeff and Aubrey arrived next--and by the time I snapped this photo Jeff had already taken off his Soviet officer coat and moustache. :( And you can see that witch was indeed the theme for the evening--Aubrey chose Glam Witch. Oh also--you might notice a little jack-o-lantern in this photo--otherwise known as Chaz. Or Tank, as all of us are so affectionately calling him right now. Well all of us, except Zane--who calls him Carl. :)

Even Mom and Dad dressed up this year....aren't they cute?!?!

And here's a close-up of one darling little Glitter Witch.....wearing my roller skates. They made me commit to taking them roller skating on Saturday---that should be interesting. :) Isn't this the cutest costume you've ever seen? (yes, those are black glitter witches on her tights!)

Can't wait til next year!!! :)

Looks like a totally awesome time! I'm sure the food was divine, especially if Hillary was in charge! I love your costume!!!! Is that a rainbow arm band??? I totally had one of those back in the day. I can't believe your dad even got into the act! How fun!

Man, your family seem so completely cool and close! It looks like you had a fabulous Halloween. And although I missed seeing you at work on Halloween, I'm glad you got to be the cutest roller-girl EVER!

I love that you FINALLY got to be an 80's roller skater. You look awesome! :) And all the witches are so cute. Especially Zoey. She's getting so big, I can't believe it.
