Russ may have missed the pumpkin patch this year, but he did get to come along for Vivi's first Halloween party! Our buddy Parker (and his folks) threw an adult/kid costume party, and we were so excited to go! The big question...what was Vivi for Halloween this year?
A pink and purple snail.
She came up with the idea herself.
And, since there are not a lot of snail patterns floating around out there (can't imagine why not), I made it myself.
I was worried that the giant shell would be a hindrance, but it didn't seem to bother her at all as she zoomed around with Parker.
Parker was the world's cutest, muscley-est Tow Mater, and the Palmer boys showed up as two darling, darling garden gnomes.
I have decided I quite like adult/child parties. As the adults hung out and enjoyed food and delicious wine and cocktails, the kids entertained each other and wore themselves out by running all over the place.
Vivi and Parker really, really like to chase each other. Apparently.
We had one heck of a night. The Aerni family knows how to throw a great party! It's fun to watch Vivi and her friends grow up and start to build traditions. And, it was nice for Russ and I to get in on the action, too. What? You didn't think we missed an opportunity to wear costumes, did you?
Every bride needs her Frankenstein. Happy Halloween, Otto-style!
