There's been a Murder!

It was this guys birthday last week.
And we celebrated in style!
In murder mystery style.
Location: A train car heading to Paris.
Setup: A murder of course!
Suspects: Every one of us.
(spoiler alert: I was the real killer. Aha!)

The guys and gals in full costume.
Ryan was a 1940's pilot and I was a princess, NOT a beauty queen.
And I really couldn't stop saying "there's been a murda'!" all night long.
With a southern accent of course.

 Very fine food indeed - I do declare - both fancy and delicious!
The menu: Cocktail hour of fruit, cheese & crackers followed by salads & entrees of chicken, smashed potatoes, and asparagus with hollandaise sauce, followed by a three course dessert of hot chocolate, cookies, chocolates - and the creme de la creme - creme brulee!!

A night of murder, mystery & intrigue.
First-class entertainment at its finest!


  1. Okay, I think I just DIED. Those pictures are fantastic. Plus, I want to eat Penelope. Mmmm...
    Great documenting, Leah! :) We're so glad you came! It wouldn't have been a birthday party without you guys!!!

  2. how funny, I used the same line "murder and intrigue" in my post. I guess it was very fitting for the night.

    It was a fabulous night indeed. Nothing says a good time like a night with Ostlers and Reigles.

    Let's do this again soon.

    P.S. I had to include my biscotti picture on my blog.... I sure wish it would have turned out better, hahah.

    P.S.S. I LOVED the antique/vignette look to your pictures; it really captured the air of mystery.

    P.S.S.S Every time I think about that night, I hear you saying "there's been a murda"

  3. This looks like so much fun!! I love the idea. What a great way to celebrate a birthday.

  4. Thanks melinda! We knew eric couldn't really turn another year older without us there, so it was impossible not to oblige.

    Crystal, every time I think about that night I also hear myself saying "there's been a murda", how strange. :)

    It was fun, and I would definitely recommend it for any birthday at any age.


Tell me what you think about that...
