The Best Party Ever.

In addition to our costume(ish) dance-party Friday night, Jared and I got to celebrate at a legit Halloween party Saturday evening. His cousins put on the best party every year with an entire house and yard decorated like you wouldn't believe. They live almost an hour from us which stinks but we were excited to spend time with a lot of family we don't see too often. Sidenote, their house always makes me wish we lived out in the country! Look at this front-yard view.

We went for a Disney villain costume theme this year. Me as Cruella from 101 Dalmatians and Jared as the evil Emperor Zurg from Toy Story. I love that we both got to have a little creativity in our costumes. As tempting as it is sometimes to just buy a full costume from the store, it was fun putting them together at home.


My mom made my awesome cape for me which I loved. Wonder if I could make that work for office-wear? ;) Jared bought his mask and cape and the rest is all constructed by him from various clothing items and thriftstore finds. Also in attendance: the adorable Jessie and the scary Rick Grimes for you Walking Dead fans.

The party-throwers went as the Addams family which was just too cute. I think they pull it off well! Little man didn't even cry when Emperor Zurg held him! ;) Jared's Aunt & Uncle always have creative costumes- this year they were garden gnomes! Don't they look great?




There were tons of food options and desserts, homemade apple cider and Halloween candy to last us a week. The hosts had games for kids, games for adults, awards for best costumes, party favors- you name it, they don't leave anything out. They are expert Halloween-party-throwers, that's for sure.



So Halloween 2014 has come to an end and Christmas music is already everywhere. Good grief! Can't we just enjoy Thanksgiving first?! I know I'm going to, anyway... the countdown 'til my niece gets here has already started ;)

  1. I'm very partial to Toy Story which is probably why i appreciate Evil Emperor Zurg the most!

  12. Looks like such a fun Halloween party! And I am with you about wanting to enjoy Thanksgiving. I went to the grocery store yesterday and everything was already all Christmas. However, I did start stocking up on supplies to make Christmas cookies because half of the baking stuff was on sale this week... so I guess I am guilty of making Christmas come too early too lol
