The Golden Girls 2008



It is not uncommon to walk into Two Poots Manor and see the sweet ladies of The Golden Girls on our tv. If they aren't on, you can almost guarantee that one of us is singing the theme song...usually to our cats! It is one of Scott's favorite shows of all times and I must admit it makes me laugh....alot! It is the show of choice while Scott is doing his homework. I guess you can say they have become like family to us!

To show our love of these spunky ladies we decided to be them for Halloween last year. I couldn't believe how fun it was. I was Sophia so I didn't even wear makeup! Easiest costume ever! I wore the most unattractive but unbelievably comfortable pair of orthopedic shoes too! Here was the costume lineup:
Sophia: Amber
Dorothy: Scott
Blanche: Mark
Rose: Cindy

We made sure to have some episodes playing as our guests arrived for our party and of course we handed out cheesecake! Here is a glimpse at Halloween 2008...




And here is proof that a sweet and innocent old lady can get mugged even in her own backyard (This picture is priceless to me!!)


I am not sure we will be able to top these costumes this year. Two Poots are going as pirates, but I know we will still have fun! What are you going as this year??

I am begining to prepare for our annual Halloween party! All I know is that it will involve a lot of pumpkins, candied apples, popcorn balls, spooky cookies and cupcakes, and hot apple cider. Let the games begin!!

XOXO
