It's Halloween -- Let's party!

I have had some I-D-10-T issues uploading my pictures -- my apologies for posting about Halloween on November 4th!

For some reason, we decided to throw a Halloween party this year -- it's been years since we had one. Chris and I took a couple of days off from work and had a great time getting everything ready. Ultimately, we made some improvements around the house that had been on the "to do" list for a while (repaint, new ceiling fan, get carpets cleaned) -- sometimes it just takes a party to get the gears in motion. Here are some shots from our party:

This guy's only job was to scare little children away from the grand piano:

To keep all the kids occupied, I hid these little skeletons around the house and sent the kids on a hunt to find them:

The floating broom!

Another way to keep kids' hands busy -- make green slime! (thanks to!)

Look at these great costumes!

Cella asked me to be a Zombie Bride this year. Here I am cutting the eyeball cake!

The Little Dog watching out for Trick or Treaters (so he can steal their candy)

My friend Melissa -- aren't we a lively pair?
