Smoothie night 09 was a hit

Smoothie night is the party that we Cottage dwellers throw for our summer staff each year. We make and serve smoothies and play fun music to dance to.

This year's theme was GOTHIC. I love seeing how people interpret the limited theme idea we give them. One of my favorite parts of the night is everyone's reaction to me and my roomie's crazy outfits. We like to go all out.

His costume was one of my favorites. Complete with a perfect vampire cape with huge collar. I've known him since he was 11 years old. Now he works here and makes me laugh every day.

I could write posts upon posts about this one. She is my partner-in-crime at the water front. LOVE her. God is doing amazing things in her life this summer. We have so much fun together.

Ah, a random smattering of various people.

My roomie decided she wanted one slow dance with a boy. It turned into a group affair. His sign on his back says "This is all the black clothing I own." (Makes you miss him, doesn't Bro?!!)

I LOVED their outfits. This awesome girl is going to be living here in our little "commune" this year. Soooo excited!! And he is one of the sweetest, kindest guys I've ever met.

And then there are these two fun girls. One is gracious taking my place in the office this summer so I can play on the beach. And the other...she was a camper my first few years here at camp. Now I'm so lucky to call her one of my dear friends. They had the best fake eyelashes ever.

We all danced and danced. Hate that I have to wait a whole year until it comes around again. There's nothing better than a good costume party, I say.
