1940

A few weeks ago, my father-in-law officially became a septuagenarian. To celebrate, by mother-in-law planned a "1940 USO Canteen" party. So fun.
Most of us dressed the part. Love that hair Maddie!
But some didn't. For the record, I was wearing my 1940-esque blue shirt-dress and heels. The rest of my family did not get into the spirit, but then (a few) regretted their decision when we arrived and saw the fun hair-dos and clothes their cousins and aunts and uncles donned. I totally coveted Maddie's hair.
Mary + Alice looked so good. Those are real tears.
Little George.
Almost out in one breath.
Cute Jane.
Sweet hair Debbie.
Dave and Diane.
Colin's old-school scout hat.
Alice. Look at that hair. Perfect.
Clint.
Carol looked straight out of the 40's.
Mary the Riveter.

I a a soft spot in my heart for adults who dress in costume for a party! Especially a non-Halloween party. Extra points to the in-laws for throwing a grand time for all!
