Family Halloween fun!

Oh what a night of pre Halloween fun !

Last night anticipation was high as grandpa and I awaited the arrival of family for our Halloween party.

One never knows what might come walking through that door!

It might be a gorilla.

Or maybe just a sweet little ‘Williphant’.

It could be a scary monster. . .

or a pretty pink butterfly.

Some might be as sweet as an Ariel Mermaid or a helpful firefighter.

While others might have you worrying about whether or not you could be on the menu.  Can’t believe I didn’t get a whole picture of this ‘killer chef’.

Some were just ‘purr’fect. . .

And some made you laugh!

We even had a few out of towners and celebs show up. . .

Like this Geman fella, Katie Perry, Will and Phil.

There’s never any lack of tricks and treats.  Boo cupcakes, candy corn relish tray and dip in a pumpkin, deviled eggs (don’t worry the spiders are friendly), vampire fangs, and a bit of blood in case you are having a craving.

Spider topped sodas for the grands.

There was bubbly hot steak chili or Chicadilla soup

We also had a yummy salad and mini French dipped sandwiches.  Missed getting a pic.

Lots of activities for plenty of laughs.  We broke a piƱata, wrapped our partners like mummies, had a cake walk, and created spooky spider luminaries.

Isn’t family fun the best?  Not only are we having a great time, we’re making memories!
