Halloween Party: Round 1
Sunday, October 26, 2008

The OHSU Resident Family Network hosted a little Halloween party for resident and fellow families last night. We had what seemed like a billion pint-sized ghosts and goblins running wildly--behavior most likely induced by a slight overdose of the drug that inconspicuously hides behind the ever-so-trusty household label, C&H.

I think I speak for all moms of toddlers when I say that
I'm so, so, glad
that Halloween comes around only one time a year.

Since the party was actually held at the hospital, some of the spouses that were on call got to drop by and grab a bite to eat and see their kiddos in costume. It was obvious who those people were--the blue scrubs and pagers were a dead giveaway.

Wyatt (whom I'll properly refer to as "Buzz" for fear of having my arm karate-chopped) and I were the only fun people in our family to dress up for the occassion. Eric and Avery were total losers. Both of them cried at the mere suggestion of wearing a costume. But to each his own, I suppose.

before being called to defend the galaxy.
"To infinity and beyond!"

This is what I turn into when my kids don't take their naps
...or when they decide to pull off their diaper and poop on the floor.

Buzz with a bat. This surely can't end well.
He spent nearly the rest of evening in the corner.

Wine Selection: Big Ass Zin
Personal Rating: **Fair**
Comments: I actually thought this was a decent wine right after I uncorked the bottle, but geez, it has almost been impossible to finish off the bottle. I think I'm going to try the Big Ass Cab, but I'm afraid this is the last time I drink the zinfandel. Gosh, and the label is so stinkin' cool too.

Anonymous Ashley had this to say:

You did such an amazing job! I am so glad our family went this year.

My Wine Personality:
For the most part I’m a chardonnay, as I consider myself to exhibit a somewhat sunny and mellow disposition (most of the time), but because I find a tremendous amount of joy out of showering my two kids with hugs and kisses, I also possess the subtle sweetness often found in a riesling. But don’t be fooled. I love a great outdoor adventure and am willing to try anything once. This occasional display of boldness is thought to match that of a cabernet, whereas my appreciation for nature suggests that I have an earthy component to my personality—very characteristic of a merlot.
