A rootin' tootin' Halloween!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween! My family's party went absolutely perfectly, honest to goodness. It was one of our biggest parties, close to 80 people, and I think it really helped keep it going for so long (till 2 am!). Another great part of it was the fact that not only was it a Wild Wild West party, it was also a surprise party for my (wonderful) Aunt Christine.

We had her close friends come, which they normally wouldn't, and wouldn't let her come early to help. I think she felt left out more than suspicious! You should have seen her face when we started singing to her, it was really priceless. It's really amazing to see how happy you can make a person.

As promised, here are some of our costumes!

My outfit:
Dress-Salvation Army, shortened and given a new neckline
Fake Uggs-Costco
Sweater tights- target?
Trims-store in LA
Hair extensions: Sally Beauty Supply (like 3 dollars!)
Belt- Nordstroms

Donny's oufit:
Abs/pecks-Joanne's fabric paint

My fabulous Dad and Kathy.

I love my goofy brothers! Cam was woody and Chris was riding a horse.... with backwards feet.

Now for the piece de resistance. Anne and Ryan, our close family friends, prepared a skit along with Ryan's costume. He showed up, with two others of course, as the Three Amigos, complete with the following skit!

amazing video by Erok!

The best part was the fact that three other friends came as the Three Amigos! And they all are friends they just never talked about their costumes I guess. :)

How was your Halloween? I'd to see pictures! Link me to some pleeeease.

Love and Turtledoves,



  1. Hey girly girl - of course we didn't talk about the 3 amigos costumes. It was supposed to be a surprise! Of course, the surprise was on us when they walked in as the 3 amigos too. LOL! I guess great minds think alike! So good to see you and Donny again. Good times!! I will try to link up photos when I get them. :)
