We had our annual Halloween party. I hate it most years because it typically involves me doing a lot of sewing to make our costumes. It wouldn't be so bad if I didn't start the week before the party, but if you know me at all you know that never happens. This year I quickly agreed to the first costume idea that didn't require much sewing. This left me free to go to the orienteering rogaine one weekend and the Katy Trail the next weekend. Priorities, you know.
Because I wasn't sewing up to the start of the party, I was able to make some fun Halloween treats.
Daniel's girlfriend volunteered to come help me bake, so she dipped all the peanut butter eyeballs in chocolate...
|They actually make me think of little one-eyed ninjas.|
|Mini marshmallows and pretzel sticks dipped in white chocolate.|
...and finger cookies....
|I love these things. Both for their disgusting looks and their yummy shortbread taste.|
|Why use a ladder when you can climb on the roof?|
|Nathan using my headlamp for detail work.|
|Kayla turned out to be a pretty amazing makeup artist.|
|"One for you...one for me...one for you...two for me...."|
|My sister-in-law and her family pay homage to Zombieland|
|Another SIL and family as Peter Pan|
|This is the perfect costume for my mother-in-law, who loves Christmas.|
|Zombies? No worries, mon.|
|My nephew and his girlfriend|
|We may put this on our Christmas card.|
|My brother was going to another Halloween party where the theme was "dress like you're 12 years old"|
|Our friends the Black-Eye'd P's with Lt. Uhura and Obi-Wan|
|Good times at the big kids' table (you can see how long the costumes lasted).|
|...while the littler kids had fun downstairs.|
