arrrrrr matey's!

ben and i hosted a 'pirate murder mystery' dinner on saturday night. it was SO MUCH FUN!! for those of you who haven't ever played a murder mystery game, they're a riot! we all had a blast. before the 'night of the event' each guest receives an invitation with a character assignment (whom they come to the party dressed as). of course, i had to deck out our house in pirate decor as well. you know me, i love a good party :). there's a ton of pics...sorry...but hey, like i've said before..this blog is for me to record our life's happenings, so i couldn't leave anything out :)...ben & i. hahaha, aren't these pics hilarious?! ben played, 'roger the cabin boy' and i played the pirate, 'scarlet'...jon, jess, rachel, shane, ben, & i :)...
amy (as lady chastity morgan) & jason (as sir henry morgan) sportin' their cool attire :)...
rachel & i with the 'loot'...
jonny as 'long john silver' & jessica as 'anne bonnie'! she was such a cute pregnant pirate!...

shane was HILARIOUS..he acted his part as 'blackbeard' so well!...
the lovely amber as 'the black widow' and her husband scott as 'blind pew'. don't they look awesome? :)...
here's the table before we all sat down...
each of us had a booklet with our character description and plot etc for the game which we followed...
the game took place over a 3 course meal...
shane posing in front of the 'drink bar'...we were all pirates ya know, & pirates sure like to drink! don't you worry though...all drinks at my party are non-alcoholic :)...

Looks like you had so much fun! I'm so jealous, I used to host a halloween party every year since we have been married. All my friends miss it! But I haven't met any cool people out here that I like yet!!! They are all to boring so far! I've never done a murder mystery dinner but I've always wanted to! It turned out so cute!!!
