Halloween Festivities

We had an exciting Halloween this year!

Our festivities began on September 18th and kept on going till October 31st.

We went to Nightmare on 13th with Bryan's family. They were in town for Kelli and Lee's sealing. It was hilarious going through a haunted house with Kim and Amy. They were both so scared. Amy started freaking out while we were just waiting in line to get in. We didn't know Kim was scared until we entered the first room and she immediately hid behind Kyle and would not move. Amy continued to entertain the group the whole way through!

Our next adventure was to carve pumpkins with Conrad and Kali. We all made very fancy pumpkins. We were all pretty impressed with ourselves.

The next night we went to the Buells with the Carliles and Bagleys and made glitter pumpkins. I saw the idea on a craft blog I read and thought it would be fun for the kiddos. Heather made the coolest pumpkin. It was a spider in a spider web.

Next we went to Drew and Cassie's to have a costume party. Bryan and I dressed up as Mr. and Mrs. Smith. But being Mr. and Mrs. Smith was not gory enough for Bryan. So, we were zombie Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Our costumes were not the best, but I did end up winning best dressed. Drew had everyone cast a vote and then he put them all in a pot and picked one out. So, that's how I won :)

The night before Halloween we went to the Buells for homemade root beer and spudnuts and chili. It was delicious as always. Heather and the girls had a few more houses to go trick-or-treating to, so Katie and I went along. The girls looked so cute in their costumes and were the best little trick-or-treaters. We ended up staying at the Buells till midnight. I think all of the wives were in a silly mood. We started off playing real games with Aubreys and then starting making up our own games (while annoying the husbands). It was pretty fun!

On the actual Halloween evening we went to the Bagley's to play How to Host a Murder. The game was The Good, The Bad, and The Guilty. So, we all dressed up in western outfits. Katie got to be the woman from the saloon. Katie did a wonderful job as always. Everything we ate was Halloween themed - from jello rats to cheese ball spiders to eyeball desserts. I really do love the How to Host a Murder games. They are so funny and provide easy entertainment.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween!
