Halloween 2012

Tracy: Oh check this out! My key to the city of Gary, Indiana” . Mmmm, look at this! My gold record from my novelty party song![“Werewolf Bar Mitzvah” Music video]Tracy[singing, dressed up as a Werewolf bar mitzvah, spooky scary. Boys becoming men, men becoming wolves. -30 Rock

Our Halloween party was a blast!! The day started out super scary, with my own personal Halloween nightmare. I overdid it on prepping the house for the party the night before, and I woke up to tons of bleeding and blood clots. I had an appointment with the midwife for bloodwork that day anyways, so they were able to give me an ultrasound. Little Peanut is just fine, nice strong heartbeat, and the midwife said I just need to be better about taking it easy.

Match and my friends were all so understanding and didn’t let me do any of the clean up. They are all so good to me and little Piglet! Prepare for a photo bomb as I take you through the night. Let’s start with the decorations. I love the way they turned out.

and let’s not forget the food

Match helped me make the rice crispy eyeballs and ghosts. They turned out so cute! Miss Ph.D is so afraid of spiders she couldn’t eat the spider deviled eggs. 😉

And now without further adieu, I give you our costumes:

The pictures started out innocently enough, but quickly went inappropriate. Match had way too much fun with this theme!

The guest arrived and everyone was dressed up so cute.

Miss PhD as a devil, Geeky as Hermoine, me as the sheep, Walking Buddy as Medusa, and Hippy Chick as Bubble Gum, with her baby as a kitty cat. Walking Buddy’s sis in law came along, but I don’t think she had a costume.

I can’t get over how cute Match looks in his overalls. Walking Hubby was a gladiator. I have no clue what Hippy Guy was supposed to be. Maybe a magician? And Geeky’s hubby went as Maverick from Top Gun.

I had way too much fun at the food table. I plopped myself down and practically ate all the food. Good thing my sheep costume was baggy!

I mustache you a question!

At the end of the night Hippy guy did a cool glow in the dark light show for us. It was pretty neat to watch.

I had such a great time with friends. It was so low key and mellow. It was exactly what we wanted. I can’t wait til next year. I plan to do more yard and outdoor decorations. And I can’t wait to have a family themed costume with Piglet! 


Old Friends, New Neighbors

Finally! All my old friends together again.-Nerissa, W.I.T.C.H.

This past weekend I didn’t have to spend it alone for once! My lifetime friend Hippy Chick, who I went to school with all through grade, middle and high school in Oregon, just moved with her husband and newborn to my town! Can you believe it? We now live under ten minutes from each other.

Their first night in town they stayed at my house. It’s amazing how much stuff one little baby needs, even overnight. I swear they needed a cargo net just to hold it all. I got to spend a lot of time with their sweet little 4 month old baby girl. This little girl is close to my heart because she was born just one week after Roo. Hippy Chick also had a very scary pregnancy, with a calcified placenta and an emergency C-section. I remember being so terrified for my friend, and praying like hell that her baby didn’t share Roo’s fate. Thank God she didn’t! So HC definitely can relate to what I’m going through on some level.

I will say I get moments of sadness, when I think about the idea that our baby girls could have grown up together. Lifelong friends just like their mamas. But I have hope that someday soon I’ll be pregnant again, and that dream will become a reality. Hippy Chick has promised to be a surrogate husband when Match is away at work.

I’m so excited to help introduce Hippy Chick to our town, and to learn how to care for a newborn from her. She was great about passing off the baby to me. I’m hoping to learn a lot! I’m looking forward to double dates with our husbands, going on walks together, and girl time!
