Fall festival and costume choices

Last night was Mack’s school’s fall festival.

The weather was perfect and we got there right as they opened the gates to the school.

They had a bunch of games and raffles, and had a couple of bounce houses set up.

They also had a fire truck, police K9 unit, and other community partners out there doing exhibitions. Cal and Mack immediately hooked up with buddies and I barely saw them. At some point they got hungry and had hot dogs and chips for dinner. I hung out with my friend Charlotte (Charlotte Smiled) and chatted most of the evening.

As the evening wore on it got more and more crowded and they ended up with a really good turn-out, I think. I got to meet several more parents at the school and see several more friends. The boys had a great time. I decided to put the camera away after we first got there and just hang out and enjoy the evening. After the sun went down I got chilly, since I had changed into shorts mid-day. Yay for fall! Getting chilly in Florida is something to celebrate in October.

Today I finished spray painting the green bed and it’s out in the yard drying now. I am going to be mattress shopping soon and hopefully getting the guest room all organized and presentable. I hope we have guests for Thanksgiving! None of my family has seen our new house yet.

Tonight we are going to the annual Halloween party hosted by our friends, the Turtles. (Here’s Turtles Halloween 2011 which includes many throwback photos from Turtles Halloweens past, and Turtles Halloween 2012). I’m still trying to decide what costume to wear tonight. My options are angel or leopard.

I purposely made that photo small so you won’t notice the messy, unmade bed in the background or my lack of makeup or the fact that the white dress does not even cover my bra. If I do the angel costume I’m probably going to wear a different white dress that I have or wear a camisole under that one. It’s way too revealing for my comfort level. I may wear one of these tonight and the other on Halloween. I’m pondering.

I bought the angel costume from my high school friend Julie. Look at this amazing packaging job she did:

It arrived totally intact. Thanks Julie! I already had the leopard dress (from LOFT) and I bought the leopard accessory kit off of Amazon. I plan to do cat make-up with that one also.

Which do you like better?
