Since they didn't want people to wear masks, I decided to paint Harrison's face to go with his Spiderman costume. (I figured we needed to do something to make it special since he wears is several times a week!) So yesterday we did a test run and it went pretty well.
First thing after waking up this morning he said, "Let's paint my face." I explained that it wasn't going to be until a lot later. He said, "But it's tomorrow." (Meaning, we are now in tomorrow which is when I said the party would be.) Unfortunately after being excited about it all day, the paint bothered his face much more tonight (maybe because we went swimming today?) and he couldn't handle it, so I wiped it off and we were left with a sunburned-looking Spiderman. Oh well, it set him apart from the 5 other Spidermen there.
Elizabeth was a chick. And she sure was cute -- for the whole 5 minutes she kept her costume on. Good thing I got it on clearance last year for $4.99.
Then this started to happen. . .
Where was she getting this constant supply of candy?
From Miss Smartie Pants.
Lots of people didn't get it at first. Do you?
Next year I might just put them on my rear and go as a Smart _ _ _ instead!
Harrison loved the donut on a string game.
For the record, Nate was there. He said he was going as a model for Steve and Barry's (His entire outfit is from there including the shoes and jacket which aren't shown in this picture.)
My face wasn't the only thing fed at this party, my ego was too. I am not a very competitive person (probably because there aren't that many competitions that I could win). One of the only things that bring it out in me are Ward Soup Cooking Contests. I was very pleased tonight to win my third one! I wasn't nearly as confindent as I was last year, because I was trying out a new recipe (a risky move I realized, but I really wasn't going for the gold this year, so to speak). After winning twice with Baked Potato Soup (in two different wards) this year I did Chicken Queso Soup. Thanks to Shauna for the recipe, that I changed a little, including the name, because there were no tortillas in it. Now I have two "A Ward Award Winning Soups."
Here's me last year. Here I am with this year's prize. (And cuter hair if I say so myself.)
Man, the first time I lose one of these could be a devastating blow.
I wonder how I would do in a Humble Pie Contest?
