Friday night was our Halloween party and boy, it was awesome. You know how you always have people you want and need to meet up with but there just simply isn’t enough time to visit everyone? Well, I got caught up with like thirty people in one night because so many people showed up.
I baked pretty much all day and thought we would have way too much food (cake balls, chocolate covered pretzels, caramel apples, and sugar cookies) but everything was eaten by the end of the night. We carved pumpkins, played Catch Phrase, and roasted hot dogs on the fire pit out back.
I put up quite a fight with the costume because I knew that skeletons were really “in” this year. I saw them online, on pinterest, and at a bunch of Halloween shops. And heck, there were three in The Office dressed up as skeletons. I like being original, but I’m glad I was a skeleton, they turned out great and the baby skeleton was a huge hit.
Pretty creepy face painting, don’t you think? Plus, it was hard to read his facial emotions all night.
My old coworkers from the library.
Doc from Back to the Future roasting a mallow.
Baby Evette… cutest baby ever and wearing the Halloween outfit I bought her, by the way.
An iPad Jack-o-Lantern. Awesome.
I carved the “D”, the haunted house in the back and that stripey one (which looked cool when lit).

Oh, and since I mentioned the Ward Halloween Party… if I wasn’t baby hungry before, I would have been by the end of that party because there were tons of babies and toddlers dressed up in the cutest outfits you’ve ever seen. Seriously, it was ridiculous. They had a little parade where each of them walked across the stage and I got tears in my eyes (I know I say that a lot, but what do you expect out of hormonal prego?). Anyway, that party was also fantastic and it was so fun to have the little kids come around to each door and Trick-or-Treat.
What a great costume Katie! I LOVE the baby skeleton idea! So perfect! And TJ’s makeup was incredible! Did you do that? Looks like you guys had a great time!
