It was a monster mash...

Yesterday at the park Denver suddenly declared that she wanted to throw a monster party. We are the kind of people who throw random parties, so off we headed to the supermarket to grab some snacks, and home to set up. After blowing up loads of black balloons, we got down to costumes. Denver had decided already that she was going to be a ghost. Kyla decided she wanted to be a mummy, Sienna a BAD mermaid, and even Madi wanted to join in, as a vampire.

After the obligatory photoshoot, it was time for snacks. These included slime soda's, blood soda's, dinosaur cupcakes and shrunken brains (popcorn).

Those are some awesome costumes (and snacks! don't forget the snacks!!)...Nathan and I would have loved to join you--Nathan could have been a ghost...or maybe not (did I ever tell you about the time when I totally FAILED to make a simple ghost costume out of a white sheet? Yes, I couldn't even cut the eyes out properly)...and I would have come as Frankenstein's Bride...and hey--what about you? What did you wear, Hay??

Katie...YES! The wooden bead gave up the ghost a few months back and split in half, but she has still got the necklace, never takes it off.

Awww, too awesome Karen. Me? I came as a 'bad person'. I had a gun and a stocking over my head...LOL, can you imagine??

The Word Party

Loving words clutch crimson roses,
Rude words sniff and pick their noses,
Sly words come dressed as foxes,
Short words stand on cardboard boxes,
Common words tell jokes and gabble,
Complicated words play Scrabble,
Swear words stamp around and shout,
Hard words stare eachother out,
Foreign words look lost and shrug,
Careless words trip on the rug,
Long words slouch with stooping shoulders,
Code words carry secret folders,
Silly words flick rubber bands,
Hyphenated words hold hands,
Strong words show off, bending metal,
Sweet words call each other 'petal',
Small words yawn and suck their thumbs,
Till at last the morning comes,
Kind words give out farewell posies....
Snap! The dictionary closes.
