I finally got done editing all the fun pictures from our Halloween Party last week.
We had such a great time. We really wanted to invite our whole ward- but our house is only so big. Troy's family alone counted for over 25 people.
We had everyone bring munchies or Halloween treats, if they felt creative.
Here was a sampling of all the yummy food.
I served taco soup and ghastly green punch. I also made the deviled eggs with spiders after I saw them on Wendy's blog last year. My friend Jennifer made the cute rice krispy ghosts and my MIL Betty made the jack' o' lantern mini pizzas. There was a ton more food- but I was busy playing hostess and didn't get any more pictures.
We asked everyone to come in costume or at the very least wear a funny hat. Connor stood outside our front door, greeting our guests as they arrived. He didn't say a word, just let them in. A few of them kept trying to make him laugh and he said it was pretty hard to hold it in. I think one of my favorite parts of the whole night was just seeing what everyone dressed up as. After they walked in the door Jameson aka Napoleon was busy handing out buttons that he made.
We had everyone vote for the best costume in 4 different categories. Jim Hergenrader (Betty's Cousin's husband, who happened to be passing through)won the Scariest with this spooky Husker fan getup. Cute little Emily won the Sweetest- if you can't read her Mom's apron it says, "If there's no chocolate in heaven, I'm not Going". John McCain(Shane) won the Most Original. And Johanna, I mean, Johny(Troy's Dad) won for the Funniest, although he did get votes in every single category!
Here are the pictures of the rest of the guests.
Everyone looked so great! Originally we wanted to do some fun Halloween themed games, but I just couldn't pull it off. It ended up ok though because we had a great time just eating, visiting and playing a few regular games- Apples to Apples and Bananagrams.
