Benjamin and I have never been a couple to go over the top for Halloween, however this year with our commitment to host events for the ortho department and my excitement of the costume I had found for us we threw ourselves into hosting a Halloween shindig!
A few weeks before Halloween, I turned our dining room table into a painting studio as I crafted our costumes. After hours, I was proud of the way they turned out!
We were Nerds!!
My side was the exact verbiage on the back of a box and Benjamin's back was the nutritional facts. And yes, Benjamin is wearing tights and his hair is purple. No, I did not have to coerce him into this either. I can't take complete credit for the idea. We did see it on pinterest. Just love that site.
Here are the cast of characters that graced our home:
Part of the party was a pumpkin carving competition. We covered our back yard in drop cloths and set up the work lights. One couple even came armed with a dremel and canned air!
Thanks to everyone who came out and contributed to the fun times!!
