Halloween Weekend Update

Hello lovely friends! How was your Halloween weekend?? I hope it was fantastic.

Ours was great! We had a wonderful weekend, but as always..... like I say every Monday, it went by way too fast!

Here's what we were up to:


Friday: Scary movie night at our friends house! We started watching Rose Red and didn't realize the movie was 4 hours long! But we made it half way through, while eating some yummy pizzas, salsa, cookies...... nothing like junk food and scary movies ;)

Saturday: We woke up early and went on a jog. Got ready and ran about 8 thousand errands and bought some finishing touches for Jon's costume. We then went to a Halloween party that evening and had to dress up as super hero's.... here's what we came up with:

Wolverine! Check out those claws
Poison Ivy
Hammin' for the camera
My friend Tara and I
Wonder Woman and Poison Ivy!
Buck Rogers, WW, Silly James, Poison, and Hugh!

During the party we all separated into teams and went on a scavenger hunt.
Here's my team!
Scary mask guy, Great American Hero, Sailor Moon and Poison!Sadly, we didn't win the hunt, but we had a great time scavenging!

I am sad to see October go because it is such a fun month! But I am sooo looking forward to November and Thanksgiving and then onto HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS in 44 days to spend Christmas and New Years with family and friends! It's going to be FANTASTIC!

Hope you all have a wonderful Monday!

Love the poison ivy costume! We had a fairly good turn out of trick-or-treaters here in Ludwigsburg, I was happily surprised. One group of kids serenaded us with a song and another did a sort of rhyme. Very cute. I was so inspired that i'm shopping stores online in the US for sales of decorations for next year to bring back after my next visit.

Jon and Steph said...

Oooh, Laura, that's a great idea! Let me know if you find any good deals ;)

Lil' Woman said...

I totally heart your costume...I wanted to go as that (cause my IRL name is Ivy) but I couldnt get my outfit together in time.

Jax said...

Love the Wolverine! haha! And girl, you looked HAUTE! For reals! First of all, green is so your color (and I'm way jealous b/c it makes me look nauseous) and second of all, you rocked it! I love Scavenger Hunts! What a fun idea for Halloween! :)
