Halloween 2011

This year, we decided to throw a neighborhood Halloween party.  We held it on the 29th, and ended up with about 30 people running around our backyard!  The weather was rainy in the morning, which sent a little panic through my spine, as I envisioned all those people holed up in our house.  The rain tapered off & the deck dried out enough that we could still hold it outside.  It was a little chilly, but we had hot cider to keep tummys warm.  Em & I had been busy making cut-out cookies & cupcakes all week, and they were very much appreciated by all the parents & kids.  You can never go wrong with Gram's butter cookie recipe.  We also did candy corn rice krispie treats, witch's brew punch, a carmel apple station with all sorts of toppings, and cupcakes decorated like mummies & skeletons.  We decorated the deck, and played games.  The party was really fun, and we've been nominated to make this an annual event.
