every year ... someone complains about having to wear a costume.
never fails.
afterwards ... they realize just how fun it can be.
you're welcome.

my aunt and uncle ... above on the right.

last year they were bacon and eggs.

velma and her twin showed up.
fred, shaggy, scooby and the ghost too.
the ghost (my niece) was all popping her eyes out like she was saying, "boo!"
hilarious.

as bad luck would have it ... the day of the party was quite possibly the coldest day of the season.
cold. rain. snow.
we had to take the festivities inside.
i'm not sure my house will ever forgive me.

there on the couch you can see the mad hatter.
he wins first place in my imaginary costume contest.
his family was dressed as alice in wonderland.
and his costume was awesome.
