Halloween 2011

We had a really great Halloween weekend...packed with a party, friends & candy :)

My friends Amber & Lyndsey throw a Halloween party for our kids each year.  The kids come in costume, eat some goodies & play a few games.  It is always a fun time and my kids look forward to it every year.

 My cute ladybug...with all her sass.
 Lyndsey's mom had each kid stand and tell about his or her costume and do a little trick while the other kids paid close attention.
 I made Rice Krispie Treats with candy corn...I heard about it here.  I also made Mummy Dogs...seen here (I actually used the crescent rounds which roll out into strips...perfect!).

 Amber & her oldest son made a punch and put dry ice around for a spooky theme.
Group shot (minus a few).  Can't wait to do it again next year :)

On Halloween my mom, my friend Marja & her daughter came over.  My mom and I always sit and pass out candy and Rondell takes the kids.  It was pretty cold this year so they only stayed out for about an hour.

 This was our attempt to make our house a little spooky...some web and a ghost.  The ghost was voice activated and would make a "scary" sound and move along the line when activated.  Since my mom & I sit and chat we laugh a lot and every time she laughed it would turn on the ghost...lol.
 The Trick or Treaters ready to beg for candy. 
 Rondell and Marja both dressed up this year.  I think Marja wants to be an extra in one of the Twilight movies :)
 Me & my old man...he is older than me you know?!
These two crack me up...they are so good together (except for the moment they decided to "break up"...it didn't last long).

Hope you all had a wonderful Halloween...now bring on Thanksgiving :)
