Over the weekend I went to my neighbor’s house for a birthday/costume party! Since it’s only a couple more weeks until Halloween this was such a cute way to get everybody dressed up and have a little bit of fun! I actually wanted my face made up like a Sugar Skull because I’m a little obsessed with them! As the week trailed on though, I started to think about what I have in my closet. I knew I had a leopard/cheetah print top and pants. So I figured since Sammy was going to do my face makeup anyways, she can make me look like a cat instead! The only thing I didn’t have were the ears, bow tie and tall. My dad ended up getting that stuff the morning of without telling me. I have to say I thought I looked pretty cute in it!
The other day when I got the idea for the backdrop, I asked my dad about having velcro on my camera so when I was in my electric wheelchair I wouldn’t have to worry about dropping it when I’m driving. So he put a small strip on the bottom and now it sticks to my chair like my phone does! When we first went over there, nobody was outside yet so we went back to the house and chilled out for a bit. I stayed outside in my wheelchair and proceed to go around the house and take pictures. I was in the middle of taking Otis, Nelly, and Bear Bear’s pictures and I had taken roughly 10 before this little thing popped up on the screen and I could barely see it at first because it was so bright out there in the sun and it read “internal battery is full” and I went up to the front door and asked my mom what that meant and she came up to me and asked if I remembered to put the memory card back into the camera after I finished uploading.. I guess I didn’t because it was still in my laptop when she went in to check for me. I felt like a goofball but I am still learning it though!
After a half hour we went over and they had a beautiful bonfire already going. Sammy loves her bonfires and I didn’t know I missed being around one until I parked myself by it. Oh my goodness, it felt so nice! I was starting to feel pretty chilly in the shade, so I spent most of my time over by the fire. At first, I was the only one who had dressed up but as more people started to come by the house Sammy, Chey and their mom got their costumes on too! Sammy and her friend Morgan were like cowgirls. It was very cute. I’m not used to seeing Sammy in a dress and she was getting very chilly and frustrated with the stockings trying to fall down her knees! My dad was the one who mostly wore Sammy’s cowgirl hat. Chevy was a scarecrow and Sammy actually made the costume herself. She had the overalls and plaid top, they bought a small bale of hay to stuff into her sleeves. Sammy made up her face, she was so adorable! Chey dressed up as a Hershey’s kiss!! I was impressed!! So cute!! And Tressa was a nun. She had the “Mother Theresa” look and then she had the naughty nun. It was hilarious! I thought nothing could beat the gorilla suit but I was wrong!
Chey seemed to like the gifts, even though she was MORE happy about the money! One of my dad’s friends we call him “Ragtop” got Chey and Chevy each a gift that way the other doesn’t take it you know, but he had a another plastic bag and inside this bag was a purple glitter pumpkin! I almost started crying because it was such a surprise. I shared a picture the other day of a purple pumpkin I saw last year and took a picture of because I couldn’t have it. I have to say I loved Chey’s birthday cake. She loves SpongeBob SquarePants so it fit her very well I thought! I have to say the party itself was really fun!! I kept forgetting I had my camera so I ended up having less pictures than I wanted but it’s okay.
