When you choose a house, you're really rolling the dice with the neighbors on your street, but every time we visited our street now, there were lots of kids playing, the cul-de-sac seemed safe, friendly and hoping with activity. So, we took a chance. That was 3.5 years ago...and, thankfully, we hit the neighbor lottery! Our street holds end-of-school parties, fall donut/coffee mornings, halloween parties, progressive dinners, book club (for the gals), end of the summer parties, snow day celebrations, and more. Plus, there are lots of kids around Tyler's age, and also little ones for Bryn to play with one day.
So...anyway...last night was our annual Halloween party. We always have a theme. When we first moved in it was pirates, last year it was Grease and this year it was a "Scary" theme. Since most of the pictures aren't "facebook appropriate", especially being a teacher, I thought I'd share them here. Enjoy all the adults acting like kids.
Some of the neighborhood ladies trying to look "scary"...If you can't tell...I'm a dead Amy Winehouse (not Snooki)
...and the guys.
Fun was had by all...but I could definitely do without this headache! ugh!
