Allison and I decided we were going to throw a Halloween party this year.
Decorations: we went for a "dilapidated mansion" feel at the Foulk's new house. Pennant banners, black mice silhouettes, antique mirrors, black candles, moth-eaten lace, and a slight mist in the air from Kent's fog machine.
Costumes: our family of cavemen, a family of bees, chef and his wife with a "bun-in-the-oven," Buddy the elf and Santa, the witch and her baby cowboy with their sufer-dude daddy, Bear Grylls and the rabbit he almost caught for dinner, Willy Wonka and one of his Oompa Loompas, and the costume winners--the birthday party attendee and the pinata.
Food: lots of fun spooky treats and tasty appetizers and some delicious hot wassail.
Games: we played the tape-a-character-to-your-forehead-to-guess-who-you-are game, the proverbial toilet paper mummy wrap game, donuts on a string, guess whose nose is behind the curtain, and in a blast to our pre-year 2000 lives-- a rousing round of mofia.
I think we pulled off a pretty fun party; there was lots and lots of laughing involved,
Halloween is OVER.
Which means...here comes the best holidays of the whole year. Hooray!
