Our Halloween Party

We had our annual Halloween party this year. I am really bummed that we didn't get a family picture this year. Check here for last year's photos. Maybe Mommy can convince Daddy on the real Halloween to dress-up one more time for a family photo:) Edward this year dressed as Harry Potter and then the rest of the family were characters from the story. We initially planned on having Joseph be Ron but found it easier for him to be Draco Malfoy since he has blonde hair and Ron is a red head(too much work). Jenise was Hermione and Jiali was going to be Ginny and actually said she was Ginny a few times. For those who don't know the story, Ginny is Harry Potter's girlfriend. JiaLi was instead Cho Chang. Mommy dressed as Professor McGonagall and Daddy was Snape. Danny was a dementor. We had the party on Saturday and of course had the World Series on. Half-way through the party Danny and his friend changed from their costumes into Red Sox gear. (I know Danny is wearing a PawSox cap but his Red Sox cap was being used by someone else.) The picture of JiaLi and Jenise baking doesn't fit but I had to post my little helpers:) This cute little dog is my sister's oldest daughter who is in love with dogs. In December, we are supposed to be taking her to a dog show. The next photo is JiaLi with her Auntie Deanna. A little while after this photo was taken, JiaLi had had a chance to study her and realize that it really is Auntie Deanna and then asked "why do you have white stuff on your face?" As you can see, JiaLi wasn't too sure at first. Auntie Jen had the best costume this year. Joe and I have been talking about our party next year. We have never done a costume contest but some people have such great costumes and we want to recognize them:) We are now trying to work on awards:) As you can see, the balloons made great entertainment for the kids:) I know I should stop posting but I can't help it. I love this photo of Edward checking the moon and then the two of the kids drinking.
