We love our friends Kev and Nat. We're sad they've moved farther away from us. We were lucky enough to have them come into town just a couple weeks before Halloween. We've had two Halloween parties with them previously. We decided to dress up and everything. This year our family wanted to have a "Despicable Me" theme. I'm Vector, Chuck is Gru and the girls are minions.
The costumes are not complete. I need a white collar and the girls eye ball head bands need goggle looking covers and yellow shirts.
For our party I made a dinner. For snacks we had which finger pretzel rods and candy.
We were all big fans! If you're interested here's the recipe.
We also went to our favorite yearly Halloween party thrown by our cute friends Jeff and Cristi! The only one I haven't been to since they started it nine years ago was last year with three week old babies.
Ging, Cristi and I met in the MTC 13 years ago. We were all roomies and went to Hawaii on our missions. I LOVE these girls. LOTS has happened in thirteen years.
And... our costumes in their finished and complete glory. I'm happy with how it turned out. I love to do family themes. I didn't love how popular the minion costumes were. There were at least 10 other minions at the party. They were all different and all pretty darn cute. Minions are more popular than I knew. I am proud to report I was the one and only Vector though. :) It was fun. I'm going to have to try to be a little more original with next years costumes. :)
We had a blast this year with all of our friends. The girls got their first real taste of dressing up. Last year I was pretty lame I will admit. My mom bought them cute little lambie hats so they were little lambs. :) Oh my PRECIOUS!!!
Next year will be even more fun to have them got trick or treating for the first time. Happy Halloween all!!!
