Halloween Party!

What a Wonderful Halloween we all had this past weekend!

Dave and I hosted the party at our house this year, and instead of the adult party I usually throw, this one was pointed towards the families.

His parents, his sister Kim and her four children (plus another), as well as my two toddlers were there. (Dan and Gretchen swung by for a little while and a few drinks!)

The menu included:

Mummy Hot dogs

Spider Deviled Eggs (Dave made these!)

Spiderweb Dip

Pizza Fondue

Mommy Crack (I’ve renamed this. )

Dipped Strawberry ghosts

For the pre-teen girls we got them a haunted house to create and a treat to leave a surprise gift on the porch for the owners to find their house “Boo-ed” in the morning.

We filled the bag with lotions, incense, a magnetic notepad, small planting pot and some candy. It was so much fun to watch them drop it on the porch and run away squealing. They have a lot to learn about this; hopefully next year they’ll have new crafty ways to do it!

(Even the best Halloweens have baby girl meltdowns)

The next morning we all had breakfast together. Waffles, bacon and sausage burritos with some Pumpkin Spice Lattes, it was such a lovely weekend.

I hope all of you had a blessed Halloween.

Hi. Beautiful photos and interesting food. It seems you had a wonderful weekend. It reminds me old times when we were kids. Our parents always tried to arrange everything in order to be as much as possible spooky. I have great memories from this age and I'm sure that your children have them too.

Take care,
