Happy Halloween from Roller Derby Jocelyn


So here's a funny follow-up to my last post...about being sick of Halloween.

I decided to dress up as my friend Tara for our ward Halloween Party last night.
(That's her as the Wicked Witch of the West.)

She's a roller derby seriously, she joined a local roller derby league and is even appearing in their calendar! She's way in to it! 

You can't see it, but I'm wearing knee pads and roller skates.

Anyway, my friend Amy loaned me her black wig to imitate Tara's long curly hair.

Well, I tried it on the other day and was laughing at the sight of myself in the mirror, then I looked closer and discovered a big old spider IN MY HAIR...a live one!

I freaked out and screamed super loud, and then I busted out laughing, even harder.

My kids and I had a good laugh about the whole thing.

And that's what's fun about Halloween, the thrill of getting a fright, but knowing that everything is all right!

Have a safe, happy, sweet, and thrilling Halloween!


  1. you certainly look different. we will have a very quiet halloween as trick or treaters are not allowed in our retirement area or any solicitors like door to door salesman. A spider in your hair? Eek!

  2. Its was a fun Night and you looked great
    Even if you did keep rolling into things LOL

  3. Lance grew up with Tara. Way cool....

  4. What a fun idea.

    Interestingly, we have a girl in my husband's singles ward who is a roller derby gal, too. I hear she's pretty good!

    (She gets the occasional injury, though.)
