Hi! It’s me! Lily!

And I’m TIRED!!!!

OMG what a day!!!

So first off we had a Halloween party, and everyone showed up.  Dave dressed as Elon Musk!  Hahaah!!!!  But it looked like a lot of work carrying a sink around.  Sabby was Oprah Winfrey!  She just ran around yelling “You get a car!  You get a car!”  Hahaha!!!  Beth was… well, I wasn’t sure what she was at first.  She didn’t really seem like she wanted to do it, so she just wore a crown and said she was Queen Elizabeth.

“She’s dead,” I said.

“So?  Seems to be going around lately,” she kind of semi-sneered, and then went off to do whatever.


Oh, I didn’t tell you what I was.  I was a cheerleader!  I ran around telling cheers!!!  It was…  well, kinda lame, if I’m being honest.  And Jack was the captain of the football team!!!  Though…  he’s not exactly bulky.  I guess he pulled it off, though.  He even started talking with one of those California surfer accents1  Hahah!!!

Emiko dressed as a geisha!  She was really good at it too!  And Aika and Mika dressed as Sailor Moon and Sailor Venus!!!  I thought David’s eyes were going to bug out.  But, he dressed as Goku from Dragon Ball Z, and Aika and Mika were…  actually impressed.  I guess they found something in common after all.

So we had lots of Halloween themed snacks (Sabby’s been busy, as usual), some booze for the adults, and some sparkling cider for all the kids.  We played games and everyone had fun.  They gave me a little bit of wine.  I didn’t really like it, but it wasn’t horrible.  Not something I’ll be going out of my way to drink.  But I guess being seventeen, they figured I might as well have a taste.

A bit later, though, we set up the Haunted House.  And we scared the SNOT out of people!!!  Dave dressed as a Zombie, Sabby as a mental patient, and I just sat behind the scenes and controlled all the controlley stuff.  A few of the neighbors came around and got properly scared!  Hahaaha!!!!!  I had sound effects!  Like a gunshot!  A creepy laugh!  A creaking door!  Sabby saying “I won’t have it!”  Well,, maybe not the last one.  But that’s scary too!!!

So after it got dark, we shut everything off and went back inside.  We’re all really tired.  I guess I’m going to walk Marie and do bed stuff.

Love you all!!! ❤
