Halloween Chez Nous, 2005


Last night we went to our church Halloween Party. To prepare for the party we baked and decorated a cake for the cake decorating contest. We had a lot of fun and have some leftovers of the “decorations.” Uh-Oh!

Little Red thought the cake was so funny, all afternoon whenever he passed by the kitchen he looked up at it and laughed.

Incidently, we won “Wierdest Cake” at the party.

Finally it was time to go to the party. I didn’t dress up for this one, but hubby did, and Little Red, of course. (I had entertained the idea of copying ABQ, but just didn’t get around to it, and then saw a friend at the party dressed as that. She looked better than I would have, anyway.

My homemade costume for my son was a real hit, for those who made the connection that the coppertop baby was the coppertop battery.

And when my husband was holding him they were … Assault and Battery. (You have to understand, my husband works for a criminal law firm.)

We had a lot of fun seeing all the costumes during the costume parade. Several people told me they thought we should have won an award for the costume, but I didn’t really care. It was just gratifying to see him look so cute and know that I did it. šŸ™‚ I AM A (domestic) GODDESS!


Finally, after we left the church party we made an appearance at our friends’ “A Very Geriatric Halloween” party. Little Red would have come as the battery for our hearing aid had he not spat up all over himself. He just came as our great-grandson. We played some fun, silly games, and saw some really amazing costumes! Our hostess had even made vericose veins under her stockings and didn’t get out of character once! Her husband came complete with sun spots and the whispiest hair I’ve ever seen. It was a lot of fun, but those old people sure know how to party and they wore our little guy right out.

For us Halloween is not yet over. We have another party on Monday. Different theme. Different costumes. Stay tuned.

  1. I’m glad to see “Bald Dude” finally came up with something. Assault and Battery is brilliant. I knew he’d come up with something clever! Plus he got to wear his favorite shirt!

    I love your cake, glad you won! And Reed’s custume is too precious for words! He really is the coppertop baby!

  2. I am in awe of your domestic prowess!!

    Beautiful cake, beautiful costume, beautiful baby boy. (Congrats on the cake contest, by the way.)

  3. What’s up with that woman from Camargue? She had such great blogs, then she just got rid of them! People shouldn’t be allowed to do that.

  4. I know. I feel especially cheated because I had finally gotten around to checking out her blogs and really, really enjoyed them. The photos and words were lovely and “use it or lose it” has become a daily rule with my French. I’m on the losing end. Reading “Mon Papa” to my son is just not enough to keep up my chops and I was hoping her blog would help me out.

    Moving to Malawi; how thoughtless. Doesn’t Rose realize we need her to have computer access??

  5. But just because she didn’t have computer access didn’t mean she had to erase everything she’d already done!
