5th Annual Monster Mash!

Here we go! Pictures from our annual family Halloween party. Thanks everyone for the frighteningly fun night! We enjoyed Italian sodas (the Ginger Spice, Vanilla Bean & Peach were most popular). We had fun playing Halloween pictionary going from a timer of 1 minute down to 5 seconds. The kids played a candycorn toss and we all enjoyed looking at the costumes and eating awesome finger foods. The chocolate covered bacon was a first for me, but was surprisingly tasty.
Here you go, enjoy the pictures!!!


Your are invited...


Sarah Palin & John McCain made it to our party!!! (Mom & Dad Anglesey)

Jeff, Kelli & Alex
Master Chief, the beautiful wench & giraffe

Shelli, Monkey D, B, C, A, & Trev.
Velma, the witch, the skater dude, the evil empress, the biker chick & the scotsman. MMMM, I love the kilt, but I really think it should have been a bit shorter to show off those hot legs.)

Kiersten, Ezra, Ty & Josh
The farmer girl, pumpkin, Wolverine & the hippie

Mike, Mikey, Jenn, Avery & Alexis

MB's loving Jeff's costume.

And the winners of the Best Overall Costume Contest are...3rd place - Fred Flinstone. It was a tie for 1st & 2nd place - Master Chief & Palin/McCain. GREAT costumes!!!

Okay, and for those of you who left earlier, you might have missed the hit of the party. His name is Ezra, and he came as a cute little pumpkin. But as the party began to wind down, and wigs started coming off, this little guy was a GREAT sport. First someone put the "James Brown" wig on him. With Darren in the background imitating James Brown & Ezra smiling for all to see, we all laughed till we cried.

His smile continued as we continued with the wigs. He didn't even try to pull them off and we got some great pictures. Oh did we laugh. Thanks for being such a great sport Ezie!!!
HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Your pictures are hilarious! Ezra is adorable. What funny pictures! I love your Velma costume. You totally pulled that one off!! Here's the $1,000,000 question: what did Trevor have on under his kilt? I've heard real scotmen don't wear anything underneath! ha ha

How much fun! You make a GREAT Velma! Your family's costumes are great - everyone's were, actually! Chocolate covered bacon? Hmmmm. That's a new one for me, too. I don't know Ezra but I could eat him with a spoon!

oh, I want to eat those cheeks on Ezra! What a beautiful boy! And your parents are a riot! What a great party!

I loved the pics. What fun! I wish I was your neighbor.

You know how long your kilt is supposed to be right?
Short enough to enjoy the breeze, but long enough to cover your lucky charms.

McCain and Palin were my favorite!!

Shelli said...

HAHA! I love the kilt comments. I'll make sure Trev reads them. Tifani, you'll appreciate this...Trev actually MADE that kilt. I didn't do a bit of it, and it had box pleats and a front placket?? and everything. I was turned on - I mean impressed!

Jen said...

Shelli...what a cute blog. I love all your Halloween pics. What a fun way to spend Halloween with your family. Your kids are getting so grown up! It's fun to "see" what you've been up to:)

What a great looking party! I loved the costumes. Your mom looks like Sarah Palin! I like Karens comments on the kilt as well, very funny!

What a fun tradition! I am way impressed with the McCain/Palin costumes. I loved seeing how everyone dressed up. So fun..

Team Pettijohn said...

I love it!!! What a great idea to have an annual party like that. I will have to start something like that when we settle down near family. You make a great Velma...I knew who you were right away, and what about Trev's legs. HAWT! Well your mom and dad's costume was amazing. I can't believe the similarity. You Angleseys sure know how to have a good time!

Trev said...

I loved wearing that kilt! Nice a breezy, but only one problem...."they're always after me lucky charms!" LOL! I think I'm part scottish/irish. I love the music, and had this nagging desire to wear a kilt (it's not a dress, it's a kilt, sicko! that's from the grinch). And, I love green... go figure.

Melanie Cain said...
