Costume party

Nathan and I have had a great time making new friends through a local message board called Lebanon Chatter. Last Saturday we went to a costume party with several Chatterheads. We’d never been to a costume party before, because we’ve never celebrated Halloween. But we thought it would be fun to hang out with everyone, and we had a great time coming up with costumes.

Nathan said he was going as himself. Then he came out wearing his “I love my wife” t-shirt from and strings around his wrists and ankles that were attached to two giant paint sticks criss-crossed. He was a marionette….or as he said, he was “A husband!” Isn’t that special?

I have a medieval maiden’s outfit that Nathan bought for me years ago when he bought his kilt. So I decided to wear it, but add some Christmas stuff and go as “The Wench that Stole Christmas!” I was grinning from ear to ear, so pleased with my ingenuity and sheer cleverness. Unfortunately, everyone thought I was Mrs. Claus.

Why do you suppose they thought that?

Incidentally, the skirt is green!!
