Shireen hosted her annual Halloween bash on Saturday. We started discussing our group costume plans for 2019 at the 2018 party. It was all Elliott's idea, and I'm proud to say we pulled it off despite a year riddled with cancer, surgery, chemo, and radiation.
We picked up a dozen spooky donuts from Krispy Kreme to take with us. I should have just baked more cookies on Thursday so we had a homemade treat, but I didn't have it in me this year. I ate one of the orange donuts. It was filled with cake batter and it was a delight.
We took a few pictures in the backyard before we left, but Elliott refused to open his eyes. And as you can now see, we did a group Scooby Doo theme.
Once we got to the party we took alllllllllllllllllll the pictures so I could do allllllllllllllllllll the comparisons.
