The following morning, we got ready to go out to Des Moines. I wanted to do a drop of shopping before the party and, in general, I like to come a little early and lend a hand. I had some last minute touches to do with the costumes and shalach manos.
Benny and Bella's bags, side by side
Our family bags to give out
We were an assortment of looks. Benny and Bella were the royal couple. Shuky and I were originally going to be the royal guards but that didn't work out. We got 'derby hats' and bad teeth (the theme of the party was Purim in London = all brits have bad teeth cliche.)
She refused to wear her crown and complained enough to get out of the dress halfway through the party.
Enjoying the assortments of goodies being handed to us
Benny is up on someone's shoulders dancing with two other people
Having a grand old time
I have no clue who this kid with Benny is but they hung out almost the entire night. This was just too adorable.
Benny the dance master, breaking it dowwwwnnnn!
