Happy Halloween!

Halloween started out as an "as normal as can be expected" school day.
One of our teammates - Janelle, bought our whole first grade team these cool witch hats. We were going to get a team picture, but could never get together at the same time. Amanda and I will have to do!
The biggest surprise of all was Adam coming in to town to surprise Susannah for the weekend. She wasn't as surprised as she could have been because he dropped too many hints! She was really excited, though. He showed up at our ward party and even joined in our group as one of the . . .
TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES!
Kirsten was Donatello, Susannah was Michaelangelo, I was Leonardo, and Adam was Rafael. Kim was Splinter and Jennifer was Shredder. We were just missing April, but nobody wanted to dress up as her. It would have been a lame costume compared to the others.
I LOVED Kim's Splinter stuff. She actually glued batting on her chin for that beard. Yeah for Elmer's!
The Chappells were Sonny and Cher. It was hilarious! This was also the fry party like last year. There were way more people, though.
I loved Carrie and Michael's costumes. She was Velma and he was Voldemort. He made that mask with plaster and then she put the make-up on it. He looked fantastic!
We had to do an action shot. Nate the cowboy played the victim that Shredder was attacking. We were saving him. Adam was too tired of pictures AND his costume by this point. We were tired of our masks for sure. Those pants we wore were hideous as well. We did have real weapons and read belts. Jennifer brought them. It was fantastic! We left after awhile and watched "Wait Until Dark" at our house.
