First Halloween party of the season

While Kev was working on Saturday, Aspen and I attended the annual NICU reunion party at Ogden Regional. I don't know why they choose to do a Halloween party, but I'll take free candy any day.

It was a little sad for me to be there by myself with Aspen, but I think she almost had fun. All the strangers overwhelmed her a little, but she did enjoy holding a plastic knife and using it as a comb. Whatever floats your boat, I guess. Since it was a free party with free food and games/coloring/movies/etc I couldn't pass up the opportunity to get out of the house.

And since no one can tell, Aspen is an angry bird. I didn't want to fight her with a real costume, so she only had to hold still while I used mascara to draw bushy eyebrows on her forehead. She actually loved that part! Obviously, she did not love having her photo taken by some dude at the party. But it made her look even more angry... so I call it a success.


  1. I totally knew she was an angry bird!!!! And we would totally have gone with you to the NICU reunion but we were in Vegas for the weekend. We were pretty bummed we were going to miss it.

  2. I agree you cant beat free candy & food!

  3. That is such a good idea and that jacket is adorable. You get 2 thumbs up on the costume. And free anything is always good.


Thanks for stopping by!
