Welcome to the Jungle

Last night was our ward Halloween party and I am sad to report that only a handful of people knew who we were dressed up as. We decided that our ward is either a.) too pure b.)too young or c.)too old. Everyone thought I was a biker and David was a rocker. Well they were kind of close with David, he wasn't just any rocker though, we dressed up as Slash and Axl from Guns and Roses. We had a blast putting our costumes together. The funniest part was when I gathered up all my quarters and hit the junk machines for some "bling". Since I had pocketfuls of quarters I left my purse at home. This meant that I had to carry all the plastic bubbles in my coat pockets. I decided to open the containers right there to make room....instead I just looked a little too eager for my new jewls. Let's just say I got some strange looks from mothers and jealous looks from the kiddos. Anyway we had a fun time!

You're kidding! I saw David before I saw you and I totally pegged him for Slash! How can you miss that with the hat/hair combo? I'll admit I may not have come up with Axl on first glance for you, until taking in the shirt and tats, but having already seen David I knew exactly who you were! I didn't discuss it with Travis, but if I knew who you were, he certainly would too! Of course, I think your reasoning on why most didn't know is probably pretty sound...

Just saw this picture tonight. Dad wants to know if that was a Bishop in the background. We need to come up with costumes for our party. Any ideas??

I love it! you guys crack me up. I so wish we could have been there to see it in person. Half the fun is putting your costume together.

You guys are quite the pair...nice look! I'm amazed you remembered Christopher's bday...the cake was pretty simple. I just used the bigger round tip (don't know what # it is, but whatever came in the 1st kit - just not the tiny one). The magazine I had showed me how to do everything! :) (I must say I kept thinking you'd be proud because you have become quite the cake-master yourself!!)

You guys looked great...though I have to figure out which category I fit into for not figuring it out. Sounds like I need to brush up...

Nicki said...

Jodee-you're going to have to show me what you've done with your list of family and friends. Does that show how recently I've visited your blog or you've visited mine?
