Emmy and I started at 1:00 with our neighbor's son's first birthday party. And since AnnMarie is so super creative, the decorations and food were just incredible.
Jude was having his One (and only) birthday shindig as a Shrek fest and there were all kinds of cute games. Like "feed the Ogre" and the "potion room" and of course there was an onion carriage ride to the castle. All very cute!

We actually had to cut out early from that party to head over to Emmy's friend (and my other student) Molly's house for their Monster Mash. Molly and her brother, Milo, both have birthdays in October so Michelle and James turn their love for Halloween into a combined birthday party. Stevie was anxious to attend this party because of the awesome house and view that Michelle and James have. They live way out in Yomitan, but the 30-40 minute drive is well justified by the million dollar view they have from their balcony. Man, if we had known there were places like this around, we would have probably chosen to live off base!!!

The Monster Mash was a good time too with games for the little ones - like eating donuts off a string (London really got into this one), and the mummy roll.
|Still trying for those donuts, even after everyone else gave up!!!|

There were some great costumes at the Mueller party, including us, of course - Ozzy and Sharon Osborne!
