Halloween this year started early, with a visit to my mom’s house for her annual Halloween party. Included in the ghoulish treats were spider cupcakes, mummy dogs, and jello jigglers in the shape of bats and pumpkins (made with grape and orange jello).
All the nieces and nephews (and even most of the adults) came dressed up and ready for a good time: pin the smile on the jack-o-lantern, a spooky scavenger hunt, make your own bat (check out how cute they turned out!), and frosting Halloween-themed sugar cookies.
My mom put in a lot of work, and we had a lot of fun!
Last night, we were invited over to Petrice and Caleb’s Halloween shindig, which included a crackling bonfire and homemade donuts and root beer.
Matt went around trying to scare me with his mask until he made Petrice’s little boy cry.
Then he felt bad.
Thanks Petrice, for such a fun Halloween! (And thanks Kayla, for coming to A&W with us to round out the evening with Papa Burgers and even more root beer).
Hope everyone had a great Halloween!
Petrice and Caleb weren’t lazy though–I’m still laughing about Caleb shaving half of his hair off so that he looked like he was balding and Petrice’s bosoms that sank down almost to her belly button. (Don’t they still make an adorable little “old” couple, though?)
And just for fun: spooky pictures by the firelight.
Sorry for the pic overload! (This has basically become my scrapbook and journal all in one, so I feel like I should be keeping a log of my life. Hope you guys don’t mind.)
