Werewolf Bar mitzvah spooky scary...

100 points to anyone who can name the source of that lyric (and who isn't my husband because we sing it all the time...)

Some belated Halloween pictures - and yes - I had three different costumes this year (I was supposed to have four, somewhat like my mom and christmas trees) but then again, its a fabulous holiday and it does take some ingenuity to dress up these days in something that doesn't come in a unmarked box with complimentary blinking clear plastic heels (if you know what I mean.)
My first costume was actually impromptu because my original hadn't made it in time. I'll give you a hint...its a sari..and I may or may not have had a headset on. Groans or be the judge -- but the little kids thought I was a princess.

This owl pumpkin is naturally it wasn't mine but was our good friends Jared's, who was nice enough to carve it because his wife Lexy LOVES owls.

This is Mike's...which you could tell because it is the most violent of the bunch. As a side note, that toy revolver has been in our family room ever since and my husband likes to indiscriminately fire off shots. I hate this. He knows this.

These are the bunch. Mine on the right end is supposed to be a snake...but yeah...its winning any prizes.

Costume one: Tiger Lilly (Graciously provided by my mother. It pays to have a seamstress/someone with butloads of costumes, in the family.) I dressed up for the Omniture party, which in Mike's area, sales, was Peter Pan themed this year. Check this video out for the highlights, because Omniture takes Halloween seriously. Michael worked did a lot of work the Peter Pan area and was in charge of the artillery for the pirate ship, naturally).

Lexy went as a beehive and Jared a beekeeper. It turned out really cute, which was good since Lex had been talking about this costume since...oh, September even though it was off the Martha Stewart site for a six-year-old. In earlier brainstorming rounds she exclaimed "You can be Hitler and I'll be beehive!" Needles to say, we think this version goes better together, although I can't really speak for Hitler's proclivities for honey cultivation.

Mike went as a ski bunny. He is wearing my googles and I am a little concerned because he is in fact, the ONLY person who might have a bigger noggin than me. I went as Medusa, mostly because I wanted to put fun yarn in my hair like Lex.

With our friend Sara Vranes.

Hair up you can appreciate the snake-like effect.

I love these costumes!!!! My favorite is Tiger Lilly, even though I never liked her growing up because I was always worried she was going to steal Peter from Wendy.

The ski bunny is really, really funny.
