Halloween 2008

In case you were wondering, you can indeed do a keg stand when the keg is a party ball. Here's Jerry hoisting me up for my turn at it last night. (I don't know why these first few pics are blurry.) Here I am being fed the beer.
Here it is coming back out my nose. You'd think Scooter was up in my face because he was worried about me, but really he just wants to lick up any excess beer.
Pete as the "Fat Witch."
Brian partakes in some of the "combat juice" Jerry made. In the pic you can't really see the cauldron bubbling but it is -- we put dry ice in there and the effect was pretty cool.
Here are the two Leias together: It's as close as I think we're ever going to come to doing a "couple costume." And yeah, Jerry made that himself. The women's costumes like that online only came as large as a medium, and he knew he wouldn't fit into a medium, so he bought the materials and sewed that baby together -- he machined the gold plates on the front and back.Here's Jerry talking to someone while Scooter chills beside him. Parties wear Scooter out. Here's Brian and Crystal:
Shannon as a Catholic schoolgirl, Jerry and Erin as Robin da Hood.
Jon as a seemingly reputable priest with his schoolgirl.
Erin and Ryan. Ryan had knee surgery a week ago so his planned costume had to be sidelined for next year's use.
Jerry holding Baby Miller (Erin and Ryan's son); isn't he the cutest little Gator ever?
Ahhh, another good Halloween behind us!
Hope everyone had a good holiday yesterday!

Very cute pictures. I have to say, Jerry has been very creative in years past (Nacho Libre is still my favorite) but this year's costume has a quality all in and of itself. The two Leia's rocked! Great party.

Can't wait until next year (when the munchkin can actually ring the bell and say "trick or treat").

Actually, those pictures aren't blurry at all. Not sure what you're talking about. Perhaps your eyes aren't working quite yet after last night? :)

Last night was a blast - thanks. We really needed a fun night out. How is Jerry going to continue to outdo himself every year?

We went out to dinner last night and it was weird seeing so many people dressed up at a restaurant while eating dinner. I guess on their way to a party? I guess I figured people going to a party wouldn't be going out to dinner first.

That party looks awesome. The little kid in the dragon costume will most likely be taking that picture to his therapist some day, but I'm sure he'll be fine. :o)
