The Beckstead annual Oscar party is the new awesome

The Becksteads host two major holidays each year. Thanksgiving, and Oscar Sunday. This year they invited everyone over and we watched the entire show on their super sweet ginormous TV that I'm sure is totally high def and any other cool thing a TV can be. We all pot-lucked appetizers and snacks had the best night. The Becksteads do it up right...we all fill out ballots...there is Oscar trivia...there is Oscar BINGO...and this year there was a costume contest.

Rebecca, Steve and I came up with a great idea that capitalized on the fact that Steve is 1/2 Mexican. Maybe you've seen Babel?
This picture is Steve, Rebecca and I dressed as (duh, like I even need to tell you)...


...the Mexican nanny in charge of the two little scared white kids.



Our only real competition was Nate who came wearing his free Little Miss Sunshine t-shirt that we got one day while bike riding in the Marina. Obviously our Babel costume took first prize and we each walked away with a DVD of our very own.

    that is a bold assumption about how good that movie is going to be, bets.

    plus - how are all three of us going to dress like the killer?
