Halloween fun

My husband was so excited when he found a darth vader costume for our dog Jack.  It took us over 30 minutes to get Jack to sit still long enough for us to take this picture.  He wanted to jump and run around – definately not sit still.  Hope you enjoy!

We have our annual Halloween party for my daughter and her friends.  I picked Friday evening because our time is quickly filling up.  I wanted to do it on a Saturday because our parties are always on Saturdays but there wasn’t an available Saturday anywhere near Halloween so Friday will have to do.  I’m a little worried that we won’t get everything done by then but it’ll be okay.  I’m going to make chili and cornbread, make a big pot of hot chocolate and have my husband and daughter make some ghoulish treats.

We went to the pumpkin farm yesterday and bought 30+ pumpkins and acorn squash for the party.  We are going to let each child pick one to paint and then take home.  We are also going to play the clothespin game where they can’t say Halloween, candy or spider.  If they get caught saying one of those words they lose their pin.  I may have them play pin the heart on the skeleton because that is always fun to watch.

My husband is planning on making a pinata but he is quickly running out of time to do so.  We haven’t even finished decorating yet but there are skeletons, vampires, pumpkins and more starting to spook my home.
