Fun fact #1: This is the first time since 2008 that I've dressed up for Halloween. Yes, I officially know how lame I am. (And let's face it---we wouldn't have done half of the stuff we have (or will) for the holiday if it weren't for Raven. That's the glorious thing about having kids-- it yanks you out of your lame-ness and forces you to do fun things once in awhile.)
Fun fact #2: Within an hour after posting the above photo, I immediately lost 10 Instagram followers. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. Guess I definitely win the creepiest creeper award! (Although, let's just be honest---anytime I post pictures of anything other than Raven, I lose followers! Apparently people just think I'm cool because of my kid. I'm okay with that.)
Fun fact #3: There are three Ryans in my family, and they were all at my mom's Halloween party last Saturday (along with all my mom's grandkids).
More pics from the party:
Raven wasn't sure about most of the games, but she liked the "grab-the-donut-off-the-string-and-eat-it game). She also enjoyed running around collecting beanbags out of the pumpkin buckets from the Beanbag Toss game, which made her like an extra obstacle/challenge to overcome.
An attempted pic of all the grandkids, a feat that doesn't happen very often.
She also growled out a WHOA when she saw the pumpkin lit up outside in the dark.
It basically made up for all the clean-up we had later.
A successful Halloween, for the books! (And a much more successful Halloween than usual, one could easily argue.)
Now I just need to jet off to Sam's Club and get some candy for the trick-or-treaters.
