Spooktacular Parties

So we were fortunate enough to be invited to two halloween parties this weekend. Both of which were amazing. It was nice to be on the guest list this time and not on the hosting side of things. Although I have to admit, it is hard for me to just sit back and not help. Last night we went to my brothers house for a fun round of name that tune Halloween style and hilarious Seinfeld trivia. Dave and Corrie always do everything to the nines. Check out their amazing house decorations. I had to take a bunch of pictures so I can copy next year (ha ha).They had spiderwebs and cheesecloth all over to make it look old and spooky.
Test tubes and jars with tubes and dry ice.

Dave and Corrie as the Jolly Green Giant and a sea monster. Corrie makes the most amazing costumes too.
Mike and Julie as Fred and Wilma Flinstone.  Love these.
Me and Justin. He picked our costumes this year because he was mad that I made him go as a cowboy two years ago. Samurai and Geisha
This is a self portrait that I took. It doesn't even look like me. I was pretty proud of my make-up job. It scared Preston a little bit, he didn't want to come near me. It actually made it easy to leave when the babysitter came because he didn't want to see me.

Then tonight we were invited to a party at one of our neighbors houses. They had it in their basement and had decorated with black plastic tarps, spiderwebs and white lights. This was so cool. We had a great time playing halloween cranium. Did you know the most popular halloween costume in 2004 was spiderman (I did) and that the average american ate 24 pounds of chocolate that year. We had such a fun time hanging out with friends. Justin and I even won the best overall costumes. I'm proud to say that is the second time that we've won the best costume contest.I thought this was a cool pic. I set it on a night time setting and it did some funky stuff to the lights. 
Hydes and Kapps
This won for the funniest costume. Gotta love crack!
A.P. and the Boss'
Our gracious hostess.
Emily and Jamie
Kristin and Ryan. Prom Queen and King (Yes she really is prego) Darn that Homecoming dance(Ha Ha).
Josh playing name that tune (give said the little stream, don't know how that's halloweenish)
Tina, Emily and Harmony

Our trophy for best costumes.
