All Hallow’s Eve Eve

I was on call on Halloween (which surprisingly, for a Saturday call wasn’t too bad), so I missed out on most of the festivities. I haven’t been able to pass out candy ever to the little trick-or-treaters, not because I’m on call every October 31st, but because the city off Milwaukee designates a Sunday from 1 to 4 pm as official Trick or Treating time (how utterly lame).  Luckily, my church had their Halloween party on Friday, so I still got to celebrate the holiday of sweets. It was still a juggling act, because Chris and Gretchen flew into Milwaukee for the weekend, as they had tickets to the Farve vs Packers smackdown. I met them and Gretchen’s parents at the airport in my costume, we went out for a late dinner and then I left for the party. I almost didn’t go. It was getting late and call is difficult enough without being sleep-deprived. But it was all worth it.

Thanks to spring english country dancing, I had a costume already made. I officially went as Emma Woodhouse, although I don’t think she wore purple in the latest adaption (which, my friends, is completely fantastic and Jonny Lee Miller makes my knees wobble and I can’t stop gushing about it).

There was cotton candy and a costume contest (I lost, boo) and dancing in the garage to Thriller. Good times.

My favorite costume was this:

You can’t tell it from the picture, but she’s Medusa, complete with snakes for hair and eyes that turn you to stone. Awesome.
