Halloween winner and who was who!

The voting has been closed, and the official winner of the Halloween costume contest was:

It was a really close contest though, congratulations Alya!

Now let’s see how everyone did on figuring out who the girls were supposed to be:

costume 1 Michael J. Fox and his vest in the 1985 movie Back to the Future.</e

Zara as Marty McFly from “Back to the Future”

costume 2  madonna

Abby as Susan/”Desperately Seeking Susan”

costume 3  joel

Alya as Joel/”Risky Business”

costume 4  daniel

Cassandra as Daniel/”The Karate Kid”

costume 5 flashdance

Shivan as Alex/”Flashdance”

costume 6  Revenge-of-the-Nerds

Louisa as Louis/”Revenge of the Nerds”

costume 7   hand_spicoli

Kit as  Jeff Spicoli/”Fast Times at Ridgemont High”

costume 8   dirty-dancing-lift

Rebecca as Baby/”Dirty Dancing”

costume 9   mommie-dearest

Marie-Grace as Joan Crawford/”Mommie Dearest”

Some of the costumes were super easy (Karate Kid, Back to the Future).  Others weren’t so easy, I had a really hard time with Spicoli which is why Kit carried a pizza box!  My husband loved Abby as Susan, he thought it was the best, but I think I laughed more about the Joan Crawford costume, “No more wire coathangers!” kept running through my head.  Did anyone notice the Lambda Lambda Lambda logo on Louisa’s shirt?

I hope everyone had as much fun reading about the party as I did getting it all together.


The girls were making all sorts of plans for Halloween, but it took me a while to find out what it was.  Zara and Abby were doing most of the planning and they asked if they could use the bakery for a party after hours because it definitely had more room.  Last night was party night–they chose it because they wouldn’t miss out on Trick Or Treat tonight!

Zara and Abby arrived a few minutes early to put the finishing touches on things:

Halloween 1

See the bag she is holding? It’s the one that Aunt Sharry sent in the box of goodies. Turns out that Zara’s idea was to have a Halloween party with everyone dressing as a character from a 1980’s movie! I thought it was terrific, and I couldn’t wait to see everyone’s costumes.

Halloween 2
“I think I have everything ready, how does the table look Abby?”
Halloween 4  Halloween 3

“I think we are all set!” Abby replied.

Good thing, because the first party goers were about to arrive!

Halloween 5

Cassandra, Alya and Shivan were the first to get to the bakery.  Aren’t their costumes great?

Halloween 6

“You guys did a great job with the decorating!” exclaimed Cassandra.  “I think this is going to be a lot of fun.”

Halloween 7

Louisa arrived next.  “At least I’m not the first one to get here this time!”

Halloween 8

A few minutes later Kit arrived.  “Uh Kit, ” giggled Abby, “you didn’t need to bring a pizza to the party, we have plenty of food.”  “It’s part of my costume!” laughed Kit, “it’s an empty box.”

Halloween 9

Rebecca arrived next, she was busy admiring the food.  Zara yelled over “be sure to try the Ectoplasm punch!”

Halloween 10

Marie Grace was the last to arrive.  “This cold cream is annoying.  It smells good, but I accidentally got some in my mouth and it tastes HORRIBLE!”

The girls had a lot of fun, nibbling on candy and snacks, drinking the Ectoplasm punch, and listening to  80’s and Halloween music.  Everyone agreed that their favorite Halloween song was “Monster Mash”.

Halloween 11 Halloween 12

Marie Grace disappeared for a few minutes…

Halloween 13

“Sorry guys, I couldn’t take the cold cream anymore!!!”

Before the evening was over with, the girls wanted to get a group picture:
