Halloween Party 2009

It was fun this year to have our annual Halloween party on Halloween. We had chili over baked potatoes to warm everyone up.  The games we played were bobbing for apples, pumpkin golf, and gross-out where we had a bucket of "body parts" that the kids had to feel.  There were eyeballs (grapes in water), finger nails (pistachio nut shells), brains (spaghetti), guts (cherry pie filling), and tongues (dried apricots).  I don't know if the adults or kids had more fun with this one!  After eating and playing games the kids got to go trick-or-treating as one giant mob and you could hear the classic, "Trick-or-Treat" resound at each door. Hank was really cute trying to keep up with the big kids.  Our family went as Star Wars characters this year with Hank being an Ewok,
Hailey as Princess Leia,
Kaitlin was a Jedi Girl,
I was Padme,
Max was Anakin,
and Karlie was Queen Amidala.
It was nice that we got to reuse the Queen Amidala and Ewok costume from 3 years ago and could borrow the full Jedi costume from Chrysti.  I made Max and my costumes, so the only one we bought was Hailey's!  It was really fun and I am already thinking up ideas for next year!
