So, we had our annual Halloween bash last weekend, and even though only half the expected kiddos showed up we all had a blast. This was Adeline’s first time Trick or Treating, so the anticipation was great (so much so that she was a grand pill all day long and we had to threaten bans on candy and canceling of the party). We all went as a big group (yes, I was FREEZING, lol), and the kids thought it was some sort of crazy race to get from one house to the next. Once back home we all did some crafts, ate more good food, took some studio mug shots (something is better than nothing, right??) and hung out with good friends. I spent a good half of the party nursing Miss Eliza … but was lucky to have my good friend to chat with as she nursed her little one beside me (I forgot how a good portion of parties are usually missed when you have a little nursling!!). Even though I didn’t get half the things done that I wanted to before the party, none of that mattered in the end. And my body gave me a break and POTS took it easy on me so I could enjoy family and friends. Yay!
We were an unlikely and motley crew. And, yes, we realize how weird it is for a family with no TV to have two people dressed like characters from Showtime shows. Scott was Dexter, the serial killer. I had a little issue with Scott being such a violent character … we explained to Addie that daddy is a “surgeon,” hence the bloody knife … she said, “Well, that’s a silly costume because he doesn’t look like a doctor at all!” Sometimes the fibs are necessary. LOL! And then mommy wasn’t much better on the violence front, as Scott reminded me … vampires kill too. I was Sookie from True Blood, complete with bite marks on my neck. They were so realistic looking one my of my friends came up with a huge look of concern on her face, asking if I had been in the hospital again. LOL! Scott made fun of me because authenticity in your costume is so vital to me … I mean, if you’re going to dress as a character you should do it right! LOL! He joked that maybe we should have gotten a little reconstructive surgery to really, truly look the part.The littles were dressed as a sweet little cowgirl and our little Eliza June as a Junebug (okay, she was a ladybug).
