So I was cereal (Honey Bunches o' Rachel: Now with twice the sugar and fortified with moxy) and Katie was milk (Mad Cow Milk: You'll foam at the mouth for more) and Liz was a spoon. We got together on Friday night to make the costumes and I have to say that if it weren't for pizza, spray paint fumes and that frantic energy that sometimes comes with exhaustion we would not have made it through the night. Friday nights are bad anyway but Katie had parent/teacher conferences all day, Liz had to cover like 10 other people's jobs and I had 12 solid hours of the Doc asking me to pull people's ears.
But it was totally worth it because you're looking at winners over there. That's right folks, we were the winners of the Upland First Ward costume contest. Woo-woo! Confession: we didn't even know that there was a costume contest, nor did we know that they were announcing the winners until we heard our names being called out while we were looking for a table to eat dinner on. I was a pretty exciting moment. Or, I may have still had some residual paint fumes in my brain and it just seemed really exciting.
We were all too tired to actually remember our cameras so thanks to Heather for sending me the picture of us. You can use your imagination for the back of the costumes. They involved nutritional values and a lovely story about cows.
