A Busy Weekend Indeed

As the title suggests, this was certainly a jam-packed weekend.

Saturday, of course, was Halloween. Mini-Me, following in his daddy’s darker tendencies, decided to be the “scariest” thing he could come up with.

What he came up with, was the Zombie Doctor.

I had a lot of time to think about it this weekend, and I’m still not clear on what exactly a Zombie Doctor is.

Is it a doctor that was once human, but has been bitten by the undead and now has been transformed into a zombie, forever cursed with having to prowl the night looking for brains, dressed up like an extra from General Hospital?

Or, is he a zombie who, being the philanthropic sort, decided to devote his life to the treatment and betterment of his fellow undead, slaving away for years at zombie medical school until he earned his degree to practice medicine?

Alas, we may never know.

Also important to note from the picture above.... somehow, I CONTINUE to be as hot as ever. How do I do it?

In this picture we once again have Zombie Houser, MD, along with the catlike Friz, who also decided to dress up this year. Note the bloody knife Mini-Me is carrying. Apparently not “scary” enough, he demanded I buy him the bloody knife. It’s encased in plastic, and when you tip it upside down, blood drips down the blade.

Where were these cool fake weapons of dismemberment when I was a kid?

Here is Mini-Me with his posse. Note that the group is almost all female. Chip off the ol’ block, that one is.

To continue the celebratory weekend, on Sunday Mini-Me turned 7. He FLIPPED over his Zhu-Zhu gift (have I mentioned to you today that you rock, Shania?), and generally had a great day.

Not to be outdone, NEXT weekend we are having 20 kids over for his REAL birthday party. We hired a magician, and between HIM and 20 crazy kids running all around my house, I fully expect to be in need of some form of inebriation by noon or so. I will take pictures, I promise.

So, how was YOUR Halloween?

Hey...I remember that post about the freakin toy that you couldn't get.

I love that a blogger helped you get it;)

So cool. Mini-me is A-dorable.
Mini chick magnet.

Awww, looks like you guys had a good time! I think the idea of a zombie doctor is pretty scary. I mean, who would want to have a zombie for a doctor?!!! Yikes. Who knows what kind of torture and dismemberment you would be in for. So I think your mini-me definitely chose a scary outfit. I wish I could send you some extra energy because I have a feeling you are going to be needing it next weekend with 20 kids at your house. 0.0

Those pictures are awesome.

And yes, he is definitely your Mini-Me.


Dr Zibbs said...

Why do you have your younger brother's picture as your avatar. That's my question.

Dr Zibbs said...

....hahaha just busted your chops.

I believe a Zombie Doctor is a zombie that has gone to medical school and is trying to improve his social status. However he can never refrain from munching on brains.

Advice: Make sure your neural surgeon is not a Zombie Doctor.

GiGi said...

Okay, your son is totally adorable. Great smile! Beautiful family! He's a little ladies man, huh?

Verdant Earl said...

So I can see by your Ed Hardy-ish T-shirt that you decided to dress up like a Long Island Douchebag this Halloween.

Well done! But you should have hiked up your sleeves to show your tribal tat. I mean half-tat. That would have been cooler.

(I'm even shocked by how much of a dick I am being here. And with your kid and wife being so cute and all. Feh...what are ya gonna do?)

Bruce Johnson said...

How was my Halloween? 1,800+ trick or treaters on our neighborhood......no joke. It was sort of like fort Apache, the Bronx.

1. Your yard/decorations looks great
2. You are hotter than ever.
3. Your mini-me is adorable.
4. Frizz ain't hard on the eyes either.

You definitely have it going on- and in the words of Barney Stinson (from how i met your mother), [you're] awesome!

LOVE Mini-Me's costume! I've had it with these "non-threatening" and "non-scary" costumes. Mini-Me knows the true spirit of Halloween!

sybil law said...

LOVE the pictures, and especially his costume!!!
You look pretty damn good yourself. Will Earl get mad at me for saying that?! ;)
You're having the birthday party before noon?!

Brittany said...

He is the cutest zombie doctor i've ever seen! :)

I work with (now) 28 four/five year olds all day-every day. I think you can handle it for one afternoon tough guy!

P.s. I'm not saying that I dont wish I was inebriated the entire time either, but there are laws against that sorta thing!

Evil Twin's Wife said...

Zombie Doctor is awesome! Happy Birthday to him - I hope he has a great party!

AlleyCat Runs said...

YOUR halloween costume is where????

Mini Me is a spunk :0)

My halloween was great thanks! Out with the girls on my hens night! No halloween costume though. That I can remember!!!

Vinomom said...

I love when people surprise me.

Your son's costume is full of frickin awesome. I mean he is really truly scary. I got shivers, honest.

Glad he enjoyed his surprise from Shania - and I have no idea what gave you the idea to have 20 kids over to your home and a magician, but I suggest drinking BEFORE the party.

Just imagine the zombie doctor's waiting room.

Lifeofkaylen said...

I couldn't even read the full post because I was so enamored with how hot you look.

Janine / Being Brazen said...

"mini-me" looked cool and scary.

My halloween was fun - I have photos up on my blog of me and The Boyfs costumes - go take a lookey.


Tamara said...

badgerdaddy said...

Suzi Q said...

That sounds like a fabulous Halloween and Birthday! I feel like I really blew it this year. Only put out half my decorations and barely carved my pumpkin.

Mrs. Hall said...

And the mini me!! OH so adorable! If I ever come down with a case of the Zombies I will for SURE page Dr. Zombie!

And a magician eh?

Mik said...

Cool costumes, the zombie doctor is great.

Faiqa said...

You may be on to something with the zombie who decides to go to med school. Somebody call Joss Whedon... and, oh, Earl's comment about you dressing up as a Long Island douchebag? BUWAHAHAHAHAHA... that was a thing of beauty. Sorry. But he got you good that time.

Chris H said...

HEY Dude, love all the photos! It's nice to see you in the 'here and now' too!

Unknown said...

He's a chip of the ol' block all right. Mini ladies be warned ;)

Anonymous said...

I was gonna give you shit, but Earl did a much better job.

So...all I can say is -- how did Slasher! not make this list?

Cocaine Princess said...

I just LOVE Halloween!

Great idea being a zombie seeing how popular they are lately.

Love all the pictures and Fritz: what a cutie pie she is Slyde.

The last picture: Aww, you can just see the love. Cherish those moments.

Michelle said...

Great photos ~ thanks for sharing "your hotness" with the world!

Nej said...
