Halloween Party and Costume Contest

Halloween CollageIt’s no secret I love Halloween.

Like. Really. Love. Halloween.

It’s a good thing my honey loves Halloween too! Every year Joe and I collect more Halloween decorations.

He continues to scare the crap out of me by hiding more spiders around the house. (I don’t do spiders.)

I continue to buy Halloween movies for us to watch each night.

You never know what you might find at our house!

We also love to dress up.

Sometimes our costumes go together…

Who ya gonna call? … GHOSTBUSTERS!

This year we coordinated! Joe’s band, TUGG, decided to dress up as The Wizard of Oz, and all the ladies agreed to play along too.

Behold…OZ!
