Halloween Party

This year, we were unable to do our normal thing for the trick-or-treaters... but we found other ways to have fun with Halloween.  We threw a Halloween party for our small group. It took two weeks to decorate the house and it was worth it.  The main feature of the party was dinner followed by a couple of silly party games.

Grant and I served a full course meal including punch and hors d'oeuvres, tomato soup, bread, pot roast with carrots and potatoes, salad, and pumpkin spice pudding for dessert.  According to the Emily Post etiquette book, it was not a formal dinner because we did not have servants.  Grant and I served the meal to all 20 of our (adult) guests plus we served ourselves.

At the party there were 22 adults and 4 babies.  Unfortunately, I was very busy with the meal and did not get many pictures of our guests.  The costumes were great!  We had so much fun! Hopefully we can do it again.

You guys are so fun! Amazing! I don't know how you found the time. The house looks awesome. But that is the cutest little sea-faring family I've ever seen!
