New Year's Eve- Photos!

I have been way too busy to blog this past week. With the kids being off of school and hopped up on sugar from the endless amounts of treats that are in our house combined with a different party or family function nearly every day, my blog time has all but evaporated. Hopefully by Monday I'll have some time to vent about it all, but for now I decided to put up some of the photos from our friends' New Year's Eve party. So everyone stop hounding emailing me to do so. Just kidding, I'd be just as annoying with the promise of trashy party photos too.

This year's costume party theme was Circus Freaks/Sideshow. At first I was stumped as to what my costume could be, but after consulting with my ever creative family on Christmas, I decided to be a Strong Man. I had great ideas involving a swim cap and an assload of fuzzy pipe cleaners but the latex swim cap made my head itch and two side taping pipe cleaners to my upper lip didn't sound too fun... so I switched genders (or stayed the same, I guess) and went as a Strong Woman.
The Gardener knew instantly that he wanted to be the Bearded Lady and has been growing out his facial hair since OCTOBER(!) to fit the part.

He borrowed the dress from my friend T, the wig from my Dad (don't ask) and the gloves, boa and hair accessories from the girls.

Evil Knievel
And guess who won the costume contest? I won the prize amongst the women and both the Gardener and Evil Knievel tied for the men but a rock, paper, scissors match determined that the winner was Mr. Knievel.

The rest of the Costumes

3 fortune tellers...



I don't even have the guts to say (publicly) what T's costume was but she pulled it off.
Her husband recently had his brain removed but was still able to use his iPhone...
Wolfman
Woman with an extra pair of legs.
Self-explanatory...
And the rest of the party photos...

As always it was a great time and we wouldn't be anywhere else to ring in the New Year! Thanks B&T for hosting and allowing this big bunch of freaks in your house!

Whoa! That looks a lot more wild than our New Year's Party. But then there were kids everywhere. Of course I spent half the time emailing with LK from my phone.

The best part is that your costume is so versitile and can be worn to many social functions...
