I'm so behind on the blog front.
I still need to post about summer, the girls' birthday party, and my birthday party...the awesomest 30th EVER known to mankind.
But since these pics are fresh on my computer, I'm going to start with Halloween.
We threw a Hollywood style Halloween Party.
It was fab.
The rules were to come as a celebrity...
dead or alive, fictional or real, a couple or an individual.
The costumes did not disappoint!
The VIP list consisted of:
Lois Lane & Clark Kent
The blind ref & Catwoman
Bonnie & Clyde
Groucho Marx & Audrey Hepburn
Sandy & Danny
The Farmer & Minnie Pearl
Cleopatra & Waldo
Steve & Terri Irwin
Angelina Jolie & Martin Sheen
Thing 1& Thing 2
Lucy & Charlie Brown
Uncle Fester & Morticia
The Blue Man Group
Dolly Parton & Elton John
Mary Poppins & Bert
(I don't know how I missed taking a picture of them together??? Sorry!)
The Decorations were spooktacular.
I've been in the Halloween spirit all month, so that and pinterest combined made for some awesomeness.
The front entry:
The living room/VIP Lounge
The family room:
(Tyler's famous homemade root beer)
The caramel apple bar & cider in the kitchen:
And really, would it be Hollywood if there weren't some cut-throat, stiff competition?
Hollywood's Most Brave consisted of some Fear Factor-esque eating.
Worms out of mud
Ooey-gooey green slime
These guys were die-hard.
It was a huge, nasty mass of cold, green pasta.
The winner came about by default, the other 2 gave up.
They were looking a little, er, green in the face.
Then came Hollywood's toughest competition.
This was a raging war of arm strength, Ashley Carter style.
Again, some serious competition ensued.
Tyler and I need to start our strength training regime yesterday in order to conquer next year.
I lost my first go-round.
Jaime was amazing.
I'd love to see a show-down between her and the Bay Area's beloved Candace Ashby.
Tat hung in there for quite some time, knocking down the competition one by one.
But then he met his match.
Blue Man Brian.
Blue Man Brian is the current reigning champ.
And last, but definitely not least, was Hollywood's Hottest.
There was a tight vote on favorite costumes,
followed by a red carpet strut accompanied by some Bieber...
...the perfect combination for a perfect night.
And Hollywood's Hottest Award goes to...
...drum roll please....
Clark Kent and Lois Lane!
It doesn't get more Hollywood than a steamy kiss, folks.
