Halloween Fun!

I went to a Halloween party on Sunday.

I was Rosie the Riveter. I even had a sock project in my lunchbox--Rosie the Riveter was definitely a knitter. "Our boys need sox!"

There were a number of political costumes. From left to right, we have Joe Six-Pack, the Bridge to Nowhere, Sarah Palin, a McCain/Palin yard sign, Sarah Palin, and "A Russian who's voting for Sarah Palin because She's Her Neighbor."

Awards were given--the 2008 Weenies. ('Cause it's Halloween--get it?)

Jackson the Pumpkin was fascinated by his "Most Adorable" award.

And Sarah Palin told me that I should take home the Hockey Mom award ("Everyone's a winner!"), so I did.

We also carved pumpkins.

Click to embiggen and see the designs. The front row is exclusively Obama-related; someone brought a bunch of Obama patterns, because apparently there's a chance to win an iPod.

Here's mine:

I picked that pattern because it was more subtle than the others.

A good time was had by all.

In cat news, I got home from work today to find that someone had knocked down the flowers I had on the kitchen table, and there was water everywhere. At first I wasn't sure who to be secretly mad at (there's no good yelling at them now, after the fact), when I spotted the smoking gun in my water glass.

Only one resident of this house has soft, fluffy white hair. Grrr.

Yet another reason why I don't have pets--hair in a water glass. Ack.

Cute costume! Love the line-up of people and pumpkins. Looks like fun was had by all.
