Halloween!!!!

I'm sorry I didn't have a Halloween post, but I am posting about Halloween now, so that will have to do. Here are some pictures of the day.

Me at work. I was Rosie the Riveter (don't I look hard-core!). Thanks to Amy who made my hair uber-curly, something I am not used to and got lots of compliments on. I am wearing it curly today too, but I don't think it will make it to tomorrow. But I may have to invest in some spongy curlers.


From left to right: Talina (Scientist, for Halloween and in real life), Annie (gypsy, and the party was at her house), Sami Jo (Witch, for Halloween and not in real life), David (Cowboy, for Halloween and possibly in real life), and Christi sitting on the couch (she was an 80's Diva, or bridesmaid. The jury is still out on that one. Oh, that she is definitely NOT that in real life. Very stylish).


From left to right: Steve (Annie's husband, Nik's man-crush and a Mullet Biker, or something like that. Awesome hair though. Oh, and I'm not sure if he is that in real life...Annie?), David, Christi and Talina. By the way, Christi rocked hard on the drums. I have never seen anyone take to the percussion like she did. She should find a way to get paid to do that.



From left to right: Nik (sailor, we looked pretty hot together if you ask me, but he just looks like Gene Kelley right there. Which is still good. And he looks like that in real life a lot too.), Sami, Christi, Talina, Steve, David.


I caught a picture of Christi taking a picture of herself, Michelle's friend (I'm sorry, I don't remember her name, but she kicked our butts at Boxers or Briefs, and she didn't even know any of us!) and Michelle. Michelle is a lady Pirate, and a pretty sexy one at that.



Ok, so that was the party at Annie and Steve's. I think a good time was had by all. Thanks for throwing such a kickin' party!

Last weekend Nik and I went up the canyon so I could look and the leaves. It is my favorite part of the season, (especially since I know what is to come in the months ahead). And as Dooce said, it has lasted longer this year than I can remember it lasting in a very long time. I took the opportunity to take some photos and practice my depth of field. I think it is cheating to have the digital screen show me if I am on the right setting or not before I take the picture, but hey, I have a hard time remembering otherwise. Here are some pictures of that day.

And last but not least, here, finally is the pumpkin I carved right at the beginning of the month. He graced our ledge for about 3 nights, then fell apart. Can you guess who he is?

one: I think it's Yoda...
two: I like the new background, but you need to change your text color... I had to highlight everything to read it because the background and text are both gray.

When we had our family pictures taken last month I totally wanted to have one with all of us picking our noses. The rest of them shot me down.

aw, crap. I'm making a stupid face in everyone of those pictures. ;)
Hmm, maybe I should be a professional Rock Band drummer. Not a professional drummer, just for Rock Band.
The pics of the leaves all beautiful. Especially the one of Nik.
I going with Viv on this one - Yoda?

In answer to your question: Steve is a biker and Nik's man-crush in real life, but the mullett part is not so spot on...

You looked so cute on Halloween. I'd love to see a picture of you and Nik together in costume. Do you have any of those?

That pumpkin is amazing!

love your pumpkin, you should come hang out at our carving parties, you'd totally fit in. I loved your costume, how orginal. I love the leaves, love your sweet husband picking his nose, It was hard to focus on the leaves after that picture. Oh, my kids LOVE their money bunny shirts, your work rocks!

That pumpkin is AMAZING!!! This is why you have to do crafty things for Activity Days. . . cause you saw the pumpkin I decorated. . . it pretty much speaks for itself.
