Halloween Party 2011

Susan and I hosted our second annual Halloween party on Saturday evening. We told people they could wear costumes if they wanted and we would give out prizes. The Blues Brothers man won the Starbucks gift card.

Banana Boy won the Dairy Queen gift card.

A few of the outside decorations. It is too bad that the large spider web does not show up better, but at least you can see the spiders.

The luminary bags looked really good when it was dark. There was also a graveyard closer to the front door and an orange porch light.

All evening, this spooky mummy man kept trying to get in the house.

Once again, our guest were treated to a bloody brain to eat.
Even the dogs got dressed up. Toby had on a Happy Halloween t-shirt and Tillie wore this adorable dress. At first, Tillie would not come out of the bedroom after Susan put on her dress, but she seemed to get use to it as the night worn on.

Bruce and Marie drove over from Seattle to join in the fun.

We also offered our guests mummy dip,

spider venom,


and a skull on which to feast.

Several people did war costumes and I tried to capture as many as I could of them posing with Minnie Mouse who's health care plan is obviously failing.

It was warm enough to go outside without coats. There was a burn ban on, so we could not have a fire, but the kids had fun playing in the yard.

Several spirits were available including several wines, a rummy mummy cocktail, screwed-up screwdrivers, hot apple cider and witches punch.

Another Halloween has passed and sadly it is time for everything to be put away, but we sure had a good time.
