Grease Lightening


...Danny, Sandy, & The Pink Ladies




Last Night we had our ward trunk or treat and halloween party at church. I have been wanting evry year to dress alike as a family but could never really find anything that we fit since we have all girls.

I decided Greg & I would dress up like Danny & Sandy from Grease and asked the girls if they wanted to dress up 50's with us. Of course, I couldn't sell them on the idea at first but after some bribing and talking "it up" they agreed.



Jenny and I had an assembly line going making poodle skirts last week and ended up making Maryn, Mackenzi, & myself one. I only had a kid size 3-8 pattern and after making Maryn's , the size 3, I knew we could somehow alter the pattern for other sizes. Maryn's ended up being way too big and would have fit Maci. I did all of the cutting, and Jenny was the master behind the sewing machine. I still haven't successfully caught on to the whole seamstress thing. I think I sewed one hem ob Mackenzi's skirt and even that one Jenny had to go back over!

As you can see, Greg went all out for me and donned the greaser wig and all. He looked pretty funny especially when I caught him coloring in his gotee with my eyeliner pencil. There were lots of people at the party that didn't recognize Greg. When the party was almost over, one girl came up to me and said,"I'm so sorry Greg had to work and couldn't come with you tonight". What? I replied, "He's here, you didn't see him?" She laughed so hard when I told her what he was dressed as and couldn't believe it didn't click when she saw me and saw him. Too funny!!

We all had a fabulous time and have to say it was the best ward party we have been to here in the six years we have lived here.

I have to admit, when I saw the title of the post and then the picture I was wondering why ya'll took a picture of some folks named and Danny and Sandy with the girls. I didn't recognize the two of you until I looked closely. You all so look so cute in your costumes. The girls are just precious, as always. Glad you all had a great time. Wish we could have been there to see you in person. Great Idea!

You guys look darling, your costumes turned out great! I can't believe Greg wore that wig, that's hilarious. I still think he looks like himself though, so that's kind of funny that he was unrecognizeable to everyone.

Seriously the best? Or are you just being nice since I put it on? Hee hee. I think you all looked great! I wish we could have gotten a picture of you all outside..the lighting was a bit dark.

Iam still laughing over greg's eyeliner coloring!
