Let October Begin . . . oh wait it's almost over!!!

October is the 2nd busiest month after December in our household by far. We have 2 annual friend Halloween parties that are always awesome, my bday, and Halloween.

Halle has been on a Wizard of Oz kick since last November when she saw it for the first time. We got her Dorothy "slippery's" (as Halle calls them) and the movie for her for Christmas. I also threw a Wizard of Oz birthday for her and now we are doing a Wizard of Oz themed Halloween.

Here are some pictures. from our first party.

 Those big brown eyes get me every time!!!
Don't tell me that isn't the cutest lion you have ever seen!!!

And here are some shots from our second Party. The second party is adults only, so Russ and  i went as the "Wicked" Witch and the Scarecrow from the broadway "Wicked," pretty clever eh? ;-)  badum ching!

 Here is the whole crew, minus Cruella Devil, who had to come later. And yes that is Mugatu from Zoolander in the front with his lover Katinka ... whatever her name is, such a good costume, and they are also the fabulous hosts of this awesome party!
 I did put my green makeup on for this party. I didn't have it on for the other party, I was worried i would scare the children.
 "if i only had a brain"
 We played some fun games and everyone's competitive side came out. Russ always accuses me of being super competitive but he was tearing girls wigs off and throwing elbows in one game, he is just as competitive as i am, but hey that is one of the reasons i love him, he gives me some competition.

Isn't it just crazy how fast this month flew by? I was in Costco and saw all the Christmas stuff and about fell over...Christmas??? I could have sworn that was still months and months away...

The Wizard of Oz pictures are so great! Very nice job. And that little Miller makes a wonderful lion (not cowardly looking at all!). Hope you have fun trick-or-treating!
