The Brie the Bullet and the Black Cat

Murder a la carte.

This is my amazing friend Cassie Stevens (who is preggo with twins but you would never be able to tell). 

She and her hubby Scott invited a group of friends over to their home in October for a murder mystery dinner. Everyone came in costume and had SUCH  a good time.
The theme was set in the 1940's in Casablanca.
My Scott actually wasn't able to go last minute so I Nicole and I got to go solo.

I'm telling you, everyone got so into their characters not only with the costumes but with accents and detective work.

There was a Danish art dealer, a crazy Gestapo Officer, a Deputy Mayor of Casablanca and his wife a former dancer, and even an androgynous French cabaret singer with a Husky voice. It was so fun.
I got to be Countess Bogov who is suppose to be an exiled Russian aristocrat, glamorous and mysterious and a passionate anti-communist.


The food was great and the conversation but best of all the company. Everyone had a blast and we are going to have to make that happen again next year.

Thank you Stevens!!!

Halloween 2012

Halloween was fantastic this year.  We made some new decorations and played Halloween music all month. The kids got to go to 2 different ward Halloween parties, 2 school carnivals, class parties in school, trips to the pumpkin patch and some pretty awesome trick or treating.
Sadly, I only have pictures of 2 of the kids in their costumes but they all dressed up. A bunch.
Ellie was Frida Kahlo. Ya, don't feel bad, not many people knew who that was either.
She was a famous Mexican painter that looked like this:  Uni brow and all...
Little Sawyer's Top Gun costume was recycled this year, and I tried so hard to find mini aviator sunglasses but could not find any. He was a super cute pilot even without them.
Connor was Clark Kent and was a little embarrassed to rip open his suit and shirt to show everyone his superman shield. So I am guessing a lot of people thought he was a muscular business man.
And Macie was a "China girl" this year. She even kept the chopsticks in her bun for about 15 minutes.
