The Creative Process

First was the Idea of the costume, which was all Leah. Originally I was going to be Nemo with pool noodles attached to my body so I could be and anenome, but I like Dori better. Leah and I couldn't figure out what my body would be if I were Dori though. Then my eleven year old Sarah had the idea of the Jellyfish. And so it began....

Leah told me to make a size model of my head out of paper and then when it fit perfectly, trace it onto foam. So that is what I did.

Shirley and I roughly traced where my face came on the paper
We eventually got the basics all done. It was tedious and agrivating but all worth it.

It's all coming together

I made a huge mess of my living room just cuting out and hot gluing.

I traced the head from the paper, onto the foam

I tore up those bath poufs and hot glued them onto shower caps. Then pinned them onto my pink outfit.

Painted my face blue, and was ready for the dance! In my hand is my squishy and he shall be my squishy. Squishy is just a bath pouf with the tore up ones glued onto it.
Me, Morticia, Fiona, and a Dalmation.

On the Catwalk....

....Poor Pussy Cat

There was a whole Peter Pan Gang. Kim is Tinkerbell.
Scott was Either Michael or John Darling
Wendy and Either Michael or John Darling. I don't remember the difference.
Good Ol' Mike
Natasha is Sleeping Beauty, Amanda-Cinderella, Mary Beth-Belle

Katie and I were completely entertained by our shadows. They looked so funny.

Ed is Quailman from the old cartoon Doug


PS I won the costume contest. Thanks Leah, Sarah, and Shirley for your help! Ed as Quailman got 2nd place. He was a bit bitter, but he lost to someone good. That's all I can say. At least he didn't lose to the Archie characters!

Elder and Sister Phippen as 101 Dalmations

Katie is and 80s girl from Girls Just Wanna Have Fun
Liz as Wednesday Addams

Mark is Hansel from Zoolander. He took those tidy whities off later at the runway.
Deb from Napoleon Dynamite played by Beth
Shirley as Morticia Addams, and Sam and a Newsies boy.

Janae as stuff, Heather as a soccer player, and Francis as the foxy Cleopatra from Austin Powers.

The bat signal that Ed, in his genius, put up.

Perty funny prank

Hey if you want to see some pictures of what we did to my friend Ed while he slept, just hop on over to . It's perty funny. It also has some pictures of Mark in some nice high heels. Sad thing is he looks better in them than I did.

Three kinds of beauty

Leah, after finding out I said Natalie is the prettiest sister, has informed me that we all have our own kind of beauty. Leah has the hott beauty. I have the movie star beauty, and Natalie has classic beauty. Leah, I wholeheartedly agree. We are stinking gorgeous!

Me and Natalie listening to music.

Leah holding Gage. I know it's only like half her face, but she's still Hott Beautiful.

All in the Family

We had a little family get together while I was in Utah. It was crazy loud, and packed with people who share my blood. I'm surprised Jason and Lou's house didn't fall down.

Chris plays guitar while Skyler dances beside him.

From Left: Natalie, Jason, Liv (Leah's Daughter), Lou (Jasons Wife), and Skyler (Chris' Son)

My Nephew Mic (Chris' Son). I miss him too!


I busted Skyler drinking out of the jug! Caught red handed! No offense everyone else, but I miss Skyler the most out of anybody while I'm in Connecticut. I miss my Skyler hugs!
