HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!

Can you guess who we are?   Yep, that's right....
Carmen Miranda and her NERD!  Hubby and I attended our neighborhood's annual Halloween Costume Party last night.  I put on false eyelashes for the first time.  Wholly cow they were so long!  I had so much glue on my eyelids I had to cover it up with liquid eyeliner.  Half way through the party the inner corners started to come loose so every time I blinked they scratched me.  I was so worried I was going to pull the few "real" eyelashes I have out when I tried to take them off.  So I gooped up my eyes with tons of soak and scrubbed and scrubbed and they finally just fell off.  The false ones, not the real ones...thankgoodness!
It's always so much fun to see everyone's costumes and eat all the ghoulish treats!  This is what I brought: 

 Some of the guests...
  
Heart patients gone wild!
 
 Last week I took our granddaughters to the pumpkin patch to pick out their pumpkins.
  
 
 Then it was home to carve them.  Hanna loved digging all the slimy innards out with her hand.....Yuck!!
 
 Sofia dressed in her "BOO" shirt.
We are excited because our daughter, Bre is coming down for a week's visit on Tuesday.  Wish she could bring the boys, but this was a spur of the moment trip and the boys can't miss school.  So sad when Cole found out...he cried.  We have to wait until Christmas to see them. 
Tomorrow will be a long day for me.  Up at 5:30 for exercise, work at 9:30 AM until 11 PM.  We are going to redecorate a large part of the store so I have to stay and do that after my regular work shift.  Tuesday I work all day too.  I am going to be beat by the time Bre arrives.  But I'm sure I'll be able to muster the strength to shop with her and Jami all day on Wed.!
Hope you all had a fun Halloween.  Now it's time to focus on Christmas since it is only 53 days away!!
XOXO Nancy

What hilarious pix! You guys looked awesome!!! I wore fake eyelashes too and they irritated me to much that my eyes were blood shot by the end of the night.
