Halloween 2006

Portland's Stephen and Nicolle hold the world's best Halloween party every year. It was last weekend... all weekend...! The theme was "Heroes and Villans." Everyone complied beautifully, except for us (dorks!). We wanted to do something medical, so we chose organs. I was a gravid uterus. It's hard to see in this pic but my shirt bears a near-term fetus. Matt was supposed to be a prostate. We put a huge effort into his costume, complete with ureter. At the last minute we realized it wasn't going to fit so he wound up using his standard pirate duds. I took the fire pic, but the other two are Stephen's work. We took over the Dalles Ranch for the weekend. Let me just say that if you ever need to hold a large party, this is where you want to do it. Highlights: Mongo bonfire, pettable "wild" deer, copper tub perfect for two, movie theater, museum-quality fossils on the walls. All in all, it made for a fantastically relaxing weekend.

Ah yes, the gravid uterus. Biggest (unsung) hero around!

Wow, that sounds like my kind of party! I love getting dressed up. And, Medieval is my -thing-! Altho, as an X-OB nurse your costume sounds great also :P
