YES! It's that time of year again, the time of year that I relish in my deep seeded childhood that I cant let go of. Growing up in the 80's was kinda tough when your family didnt have much cashola, so needless to say my sisters and i didnt have the latest fashions like the other cool girls. I didn't have the "Gag Me With a Spoon" T-Shirt or the Guess Jeans. But since my mom is a seamstress when October came around, we knew were were gonna Rock You Like a Hurricane! Halloween is afoot my friends and that means Mary RC goes nuts with the decorations, (which you can see here, they haven't changed much) costumes and most of all the Halloween Bash.
Things are a little different this year, and sadly in some ways. The Halloween Bash in the past 4 years has been hosted by 3 couples. One couple is out this year, the Tobler's. We'll miss them tons. And we don't have a super special invite either this year, we used some old pics and doctored them up. With Mike working in California we couldn't line up the 4 of us and a photographer in time. Before I knew it, WHAM the invite was over due.. But this will suffice. And I must add that my friend Jessica from Without a Place and her hubby Chris, are helping us out this year. Were hoping they can recruit some new blood for the party.
Here are some invitations from the past..
This was our Guess Who's Coming Invite from 2006
Next we have out Haunted Mansion Invite with the guys as the hitchhiking ghosts.
And last year's, which is my favorite, three girls as the Hocus Pocus sisters..
Now I just have to figure out what the heck Mike and I are gonna be this year. I was thinking John Lennon and Yoko Ono would be funny, long frizzy wigs, pajamas, peace signs maybe a beard for Mike.
But I'm afraid Yoko looks too much like The Grudge, and I hate it when people don't know what or who I'm supposed to be. Last year NO ONE knew who I was, I was Lydia from Beetlejuice, Mike was Beetlejuice. Nobody got it. :(
Maybe it was because my spiked bangs fell off..
