Well, there was a knock at the door, I yelled at Dan to answer (silly me, he NEVER answers the door)...I heard Ellie say, "Mom, its Greg and Debra!!", to which I was thinking..."yeah right." (Debra is my good friend that moved about 35 minutes North of us in February).
Anyway, I opened the door, and there was Debra...YAY!! She stopped by the house on her way back home from a scrapbooking retreat. She handed over my favorite present (she claims it isn't my present, but I don't want anything else!!).
Now the background behind the photos...Halloween is my absolute favorite holiday!! I love the decorations, trick or treaters, costumes, candy, etc. However, Dan has never liked it, but when he was growing up he wasn't allowed to go trick or treating (bummer, right?). Anyway, I always call him the Halloween scrooge!!
Dan started liking Halloween once we had Ellie, because she got to dress up, and he got to take her from house to house. Well, a couple of years ago we were invited to our first Halloween party. This was Dan's very first time dressing up for Halloween, and I think he finally got the "Halloween bug". Doesn't he look fabulous? I watched Memoirs of a Geisha the night before to make sure I had the makeup aspect right, and Dan had the PERFECT lips for it!! Before we left for the party, we stopped by Greg and Debra's for a photo op.
We won first prize at the party, and after we left we started planning our costume for the next year...unfortunately we didn't make it to that party, but we definitely have ideas "a flowin'" for the years to come!!
I should also mention that I got a ton of new clothes, and I can't wait to wear them!! :)
