(The Casablanca Clientele!)
Oh Readers, What a time we had! Friends dressed up and came from all over to attend our 7th annual "Costume Ball".
(Friend Emily, our in House cob-webber!)
(Patricia "River Song", Brandon "The Dr.", Jennifer "Rose Tyler", & Ben "Sherlock Homes"!)
Several of our friends are fans of the BBC show "Dr. Who" and for the rest we said "pick a person from history to come as." (Now pretend reading this next part in a "Rod Serling" voice, I knwo I will!) -and so unfolded a wonderful evening of entertainments with a colorful cast of characters.
(Matt "Jedi Knight", Seigen "Future President", Cameron "Mad Hatter".)
(Chloe "Mary Crawley from Downton Abbey", Me "The host", Kayla "Cinemark Employee"!)
(Jordan "The Dr's Tardis", Ben "Sherlock & Watson",Zack "The Phantom of the Opera")
(JT as "Ducktape-acus" & Dana as a "Sailor".)
(Kelcie as Wednesday Adams!)
(Friend Emily as a Hippie protester.)
(Cora Belle as "Debbie Reynolds, in 'Singing In the Rain'.")
(Brandon, Michael & Logan.)
There were so many other wonderful costumes, unfortunately my current camera is on its very last leg and most of the pictures taken at the party were very blurry. I wish I had thought to take picture of all the food! Friends Ben and Zack graciously volunteered to supply hot dogs for dinner, and all the guests brought food or drink for the buffet, thanks to everyone there was a feast!
(A few of the things I made for the party)
(Halloween Chex mix in an orange carnival glass bowl.)
("Yellow cake Jubilee" in Orange Pyrex!)
(Peanut butter 'Mary Jane's' in a Frankoma leaf)
(Harvey & Chloe!)
We all enjoyed taking in each others costumes and after everyone had sized everyone up it was time to vote for the Costume Contest, and the prized "Skele-mingo".

It was a wonderfully spooky and funny night at the Flamingo Drive-in! The Comedy of Mel Brooks had everyone laughing until their sides hurt.
Yet Another fabulous party, here at Mick's! I would also like to say Thank You to everyone who came, contributed to the food or drinks pile and made this a wonderful event. Patricia and I couldn't do it without you guys and gals!
