Long time coming, but it took a while to collect pictures together, then I had a family trip.
Me and my friends Kelli and Audrey hosted our annual Halloween party this year. We all love Halloween, and when we first moved to this neighborhood, we would all host one on alternate years to try not to step on each other's toes. Once Kelli finished the big yard to the side of her house, she has generously let us host together there in recent years. We all try to take some of the burden so nobody is stuck with everything. We also usually make it a potluck thing, so the expense isn't too great. This time we tried something different. Instead of potluck, We decided to do a sweet and savory waffle bar with the good kind of Belgian waffles. We asked for contributions from our neighbors for ingredients and toppings, and everyone kicked in pretty well. Things got a little hectic night of, with running around refilling the table, so this may be the first and last one like this (my calves were killing me by the end running up and down stairs in those heels!), but it was a nice change.
Epic Halloween miracle for us this year. Jeff agreed to dress up! Can you guess who he is?
Some of the families did great themed costumes.
I honestly wish I were able to get more pictures of people.
But we were all busier than in years past.
This is one of my little nursery boys. He INSISTED on Princess Leia for his costume and he made a great one!
The funniest couple in the ward. Love these guys.
The table turned out pretty cool with a nice garland from Audrey for the front.
I really wish I had a better camera. Not loving this new phone's camera.
We had the biggest crowd we have seen. Over 130 people.
This year we had some killer special effects thanks to this couple below. Fog and a startling opening coffin. Watch for it in the video near the end.
Classed up the whole event! A big thanks to them!
And thanks to everyone who came and participated! It made my Halloween.
