Party Fun!

After a year without Mardi Gras in 2002, I was going to have a Mardi Gras Masquerade in 2003 no matter what! Since I moved from San Jose to Cupertino right after Halloween, this also served as my housewarming party.

So, here you are! Plenty of digital photos for your viewing enjoyment, plus even a stop-motion webcam movie! You can just scroll through, or you can jump directly to these sections:
