Yodeling, Anyone?

So I might have failed to mention that we have a few new neighbors. This summer three new families moved into three houses on our street. And one of the families? Happens to be German. So guess what our neighborhood did for Oktoberfest?


I think this photo sums it up. And yes, I totally have his permission to post this, although that fact stuns me as well. And, for the record, this isn't the husband nor our neighbor Ring. Just so you know. (You can say thank you now, TD and Ring.)

What's the craziest costume y'all ever wore?

Two things.
1. That cannot be his first beer if he consented to posting that.
2. Yo-de-la-he-ew.

This is better than when I joined the brunch bunch gang and dressed as one of the Little Rascals ----Buckwheat! My best friend went as Spike, the dog, and Tonggu Grandfather went as Alfafa. We had Darla, Spanky and others too. Somehow, I got the worst of it because I had to cover my skin in shoe polish to be the color of Buckwheat and wore an old nightgown TO THE OFFICER'S CLUB!!! I, obviously, have no vanity at all.

Germans know how to fest. Loved our years in Germany...and I was just a kid.

No cool costume stories for me.

I'm with happy geek... the beer in his hand explains a LOT.
Gotta give the guy a gold star *spirit* award, though ;)

Oops, I meant Pete not Spike, although we did have a Spike in our group as well.

Please tell me it is not as cold there as OUR October has been. Although seeing the green grass and green leaves would tend to support the theory that you have not yet had a frost. Otherwise--BRRR!

My craziest costume moment came at the instigation of some of my pals when we were all in college. They were home on spring break, which happened to fall around March 17, and we all decided to dye our hair green with Kool-Aid. Nobody mentioned that Kool-Aid dye STAYS in blond hair for a month afterward. I even wrote a limerick about it a couple weeks later--something along the lines of:

Over break I dyed my hair green
A lovely bright emerald sheen

It's stayed and stayed
I've washed and prayed

But I'm still not fit to be seen

Okay, that's just awesome! Hehehe

How FUN!!! I know he would be a great friend of mine for sure :)

My husband and I were Napoleon Dynamite and Deb. I wore a pink tea length (!) prom dress and a side ponytail. Husband wore a curly wig, suit from Goodwill. Funniest part is on the way to the party we had to stop at a store and ran into our neighbor. She was going on about how great we looked and where were we going for dinner!!! Kinda scary.

Classic! Gotta love some good neighbors!

I was born german - raised german - and still have a little bit of the deutsch - but my vocabulary has slipped these last few years - but I've got one word for that picture - Ausgeschnietnet! (and I probably mis-spelled that too!)

hugs - aus and co.

This photo is laugh out loud FUNNY!! Hmmmm...what kind of beer IS he drinking, exactly? lol!!

Craziest costume? Hmmmm....one year at a Halloween party I went as Steven Tyler (Aerosmith lead singer)....after I had done my hair & makeup, I walked into the living room where Frank was sleeping, he woke up & screamed when he saw me! lol!

Wow. That's just way too sexy.

My husband and I dressed as Jet Puff Marshmallows once. We wore white sweats, stuffed them to look chubby, and painted our faces white. I even wore marshmallow earrings.

Jboo said...

What a fun neighbhood! One year for a Halloween party, I was Marilyn Monroe (!). Only one teensy problem -- my feather boa caught fire from a candle. Luckily, there was somebody standing close by who was paying more attention than I was!

Hrm...I really can't think of a costume I EVERE wore right now.

That dude has left me speechless. ;-)

Dawn said...

When I was in high school, I dressed as a Dutch girl... complete with the funny hat, tights and even real wooden shoes. To top it off, I wore this ON A FLOAT for our entire community's viewing pleasure. Oh. yes. I. did.

Wonder if my parents have any pictures? They're here visiting - I'll have to ask.

Janet said...

I was Raggedy Anne once. It wasn't crazy but I was adorably cute. Beyond belief.

Jean said...

That is not just a beer it 's a king size beer and yes that does explain... a lot!

What a fun neighborhood!! AND NO SNOW! I'm movin in!

I'm a little shy on the dressing up BUT on my 50th birthday my friends dressed me up! I sported a pair of 34 F's! The told everyone I was Princes Grace and I have come back for the dead. My new friends at the bars loved me!! I forgot to get their names...

thegypsymama said...

No, no, no. It is just NOT POSSIBLE that you live in a real bricks and mortar neighborhood! Are you SURE you don't live on a Disney lot somewhere, eh?

Sharie said...

I can only think of one costume and it was so not fun -
Now when my brother-in-law and sister were in college they went as a priest and a nun -
HE was a NUN
SHE was a PRIEST
Did I mention they went to a Catholic college - and my VERY Catholic mom helped dress them:)

I sooooo want to live in your 'hood! A neighbor who is willing to pose in lederhosen AND publish it to the world...well, that's my kind of people.

Fun times! My neighbors are boring and keep to themselves, just like they always say on the news.

When I was in high school, I was in the German club and we dressed in authentic costumes and polka'd at all the Oktoberfests in western CO. Those were interesting times. Once, we convinced a local man to buy beer for us after we told him we WERE Germans and it was okay for us to drink underage.

Jawohl.

I wish my neighbors were more friendly. But this might just be a little TOO friendly.
