It must be all the snow we've been getting, and the colder weather.
And also that I heard a Sufjan Stevens Christmas song the other day.
Before I dive head-first into Christmas...how was Halloween for everyone??
I decided the night before our party that I was going to be Rosie the Riveter. Thank goodness it wasn't too hard to find a costume. Phew.
Our party was good -- we basically had a pot luck dinner (I made wassail! It turned out amazing) and then we played Quelf. Have you guys played this before???? Oh my goodness....you better play with a group of people you don't easily get embarrased around!!!
For example, one of my "stunt" tasks was to put one finger in my nostril, and then yodel as loud as I could while rolling the dice. I had to keep doing this until I rolled a two....THREE times. Oh boy...embarrasing! But just absolutely hilarious.
This game is unlike any other I have ever played! Their penalties are even one of a kind! I read one that was "if you can't complete your stunt, sit underneath the table for the duration of the next round. Act like a child."
Just unreal. So we played that and everyone headed out, and we watched scary movies for the rest of the night! I don't have individual pictures yet, but I will post our group photo. See if you can find me.... :)
Halloween was fun this year. I'm still enjoying the pumpkins, the harvest candle, my ravens, and all the leaves, but.............
talk to me here, ladies.....
Anyways...chew on that for a little bit :)
