Don't Worry, I'm Alive

It's been a while since I posted last. I had to go to Lima, Ohio with Alex. Ever heard of it? NO? Well, lucky you. I was trying to figure out how to describe it and all I could come up with "was pretty gray and industrial looking," or "THE THIRD LEVEL OF HELL." One of those probably paints a pretty good, grayscale picture for you. Seriously, poor Alex who has to travel there for half of his life. I feel blessed to be home. Really-I'm not just saying that. It was not the funnest trip of my life, and I think Lima tried to kill my mom. She's got the swine now. Thanks a lot, Ohio. (ps, my mom doesn't have the swine. She's just sick.)
But really, the point of my post is Halloween. I know I'm about a week late on this, but that's all I've got. I was pretty proud of the family this year, we made our costumes. That's right, this girl sews. Who knew? We were a theme family-Tinkerbell, Peter Pan, and Tiger Lily. Tessa really wanted to be Tinkerbell, so I was all, "whatevs, she's kind of trashy, but I guess that's ok. You're only young once." So I made her costume. I have a bunch of pictures, but only half of them were loaded onto our computer tonight, so I'm only giving the good points.

This is our family at my company's party. Tessa wouldn't stand up because she desperately needed Alex to hold her EVERY SECOND OF THE DAY. She missed him. And yes, Alex's legs are better looking than mine. I'm over it.

And we planned a party for Alex's friends, which rocked. Except for everyone sucks at Horror Movie Trivia. Sorry-I had to say it. When I did the trivia with my family, they rocked at it...

I got a bunch of pictures of the party, but I didn't want to wait for them to upload, so this is all you get:

These are most of the friends. And here is what they are (from left to right): Mike and Alysha as Popeye and Olive Oyl, Steve as Dexter, TJ and Rachel as a figure skater and a hockey player, Andy as the robot from Flight of the Conchords, Brock as Spock, Rebecca as Batgirl, Wes is a bear, Adam is himself, John is a chicken plus something, and our family...

All that we are missing is Jake and Heather and Emmett-they had already left. But they dressed up too. Jake was a Bears Superfan, Heather a viking, and Emmett was Batman (so cute!) I was really proud of all the friends, because usually they try to ruin my parties (actually, only John. He ruined my 22nd birthday. And I will not forget it.) But this time, everyone dressed up and participated, and they were all fun! (Not that they aren't usually fun, this time they were fun plus costumes.)And this is how Tessa laid on the couch for most of the night. Emmett and Wesley were there, so I think she was trying to seduce them. Sexy poses for my trashy little Tinkerbell. (Obviously I do not think my child is trashy. But she is sexy, right?)

On Halloween night, we went to both the grandparents house and did the trick or treating thing. I did get pictures but I am not sharing them with everyone, just because I'm lazy and don't want to get my camera out of my purse.

So, until next time. It's Tessa's birthday in 2 days, so I'll probably post about that in 2 weeks. I'm running behind on life!

I blame OHIO...
