Being out of school as a teacher on holiday break means that Friday really holds no magic for me. Everyday is a vacation! : )
Friday afternoon, my good friend Lyndsey and her son, Hudson, came over to visit. I gave them their Christmas gift, and Lyndsey and I scouted around the house for costumes for tomorrow night's murder mystery we are hosting. Lyndsey is such a fun girl, and one of my oldest friends. Our mothers were bridesmaids in each others weddings, as was Lyndsey and I. We were on Pom-Squad together, worked together after high school, and have always stayed close. It has been fun "growing up" together.

Friday night, our best friends, Zack, Amy, and Zayde, came over for dinner. We rented the movie Clue and played a round of Clue, the game. We also exchanged gifts. Playing Clue got us in the mood for the part-ee! At one point in the evening, the phone rang. It was Carmen, a cousin who is coming to the party also. We discussed costumes and menu plans, and Carmen scoffed that she didn't have a black wig to wear (her character is supposed to have black hair.)I laughed and said, "Who owns a wig? No one!" About that moment, I turned around in time to catch Amy wearing a curly, short wig! We died laughing! She had actually packed it so she could wear it and let me see how it looked! She is definitely ready to play her part tomorrow. It is going to be the bomb-diggity!
We ate so much junk! : )
I love Amy's surprise face! Clue is like "our" couples game, ya know!
Green was "so" in for the night! : )
