And the parties begin...

The fun started on Saturday night. We had a murder myster party called the "Watersdown Affair." It was a lot of fun. We went all out with our costumes and the food. We ate on Becca's china and had a delicious 3 course dinner. Appetizers included stuffed mushrooms and homemade cheeseball and crakers. The dinner consisted of roast, mashed potatoes, asparagus, orange rolls, salad, and martinellis. And the dessert was homemade pumpkin cheesecake and cranberry wassal. Wow, it was incredible!


Spencer and I were "Florence and Donny Brooks" - he is the big shot business man, and I am a former model. We both love to be social and to travel extensively.




Here are the girls: Randy (kim the actress), Florence (katie the business mans wife), Eguille (Bex the secretary), Tygess (Erika the golfer's wife), Ali (Jen the writer), Ivonna (the doctor's date for hire)


Can I just say I love this girl!?! When we were deciding who would be who, we knew that we had to give Kim the role as the actress cause she would go all out, and she sure did, I love her costume!

I hate to admit... but yes, this is Lance and Evi at close to midnight!


Here was our wonderful dinner. I have to say this picture cracks me up, cause look at Kim's hair, is it not like 10x bigger than everyone else in the picture! LOL

The whole gang.
*************** Fast forward to Monday night ******************************

We went to the Thunderbird woman and family Halloween potluck dinner. I had to take a pic of the Brown fam cause their costumes were awesome! Jason is the Matador, Paulo the lady in waiting, and Mateus the bull, so cute!!!

And here is a sneak peek of what Lance is... I taught him to say "ROAR!" It is so darn cute!


Not the best picture of Lance, but you can see his whole outfit... so cute!

We have a lot more Halloween festivities planned for the rest of the week, so I am sure there will be more pictures to come.

Of course leave it to you guys to put together a fun time. I love the costumes! Funny, they all seem to fit you perfectly! And hey, you won't think about the fact that you robbed them of brain-cell creating sleep until they become 16 or so and you wonder where their brain is when they did something... (does that make sense or did I just ramble something unintelligible, because if you can't make it out, I'm sure my mom kept me up until midnight once or twice) :)!

Looks like so much fun! I love Halloween and dressing up. I love the murder mystery parties. You know my sister in law her name was Teresa Peterson. I asked her if she remembered you as well and she did. Funny, small world.
