The initial idea soon got out of hand (as it usually does with me) and before you know it we had decided on a Toga Party, complete with prizes for best dressed, Spanakopita, Falafel, Tapas, and Tzatzikii. We also decided to watch My Big Fat Greek Wedding, because it just seemed like a good idea. The only thing we didn't have was a lamb roasting in the front yard.

|Little man and Charlie enjoying their costumes.|
|My little man in his pillowcase Toga. I swear he might start wearing these full time cause it just broke my heart to look at him he was so dang cute!|
|My family who were troopers for dressing up! Special thanks to my brother, Cory, who wasn't thrilled to be wearing a dress.|
Thanks to my friend, Rachel Coleman, who incidentally introduced me to the Greek side of life in New York, I knew exactly what to make. Who cares that it took me the entire day and my brain power for the week. Everything turned out sooo good. My mom's spinach pies were especially good!
My little man LOVED the falafel. And I LOVED the night.
P.S. If you're wondering why I didn't post my toga picture it is because I had a costume catastrophy last minute and ended up wearing something less Greek and more Hawaiian. The outfit wasn't worthy of this post. ;)
