Getting ready for Halloween

After two months of planning everything is starting to come together for our big Halloween night. Mike has been awesome at setting up the haunted house frame and running all the extension cords to the right places. Next we'll be putting up the black plastic and all the decorations.  We have also been playing with dry ice, getting costumes ready and carving pumpkins. Super busy but fun busy. 

Look it's standing.

Grandma Reva's Halloween Party

Grandma Reva's Halloween party is always full of fun games, prizes, treats and fun food. We all got together to play Halloween Bingo, Find the Bones, and a Cupcake Walk. Then we had ghost pizzas, haunted punch, hot apple cider and more. It was a fun evening.

Time for Apple Cider

You know it is Fall when it's time to pick apples and make apple cider. We love doing this every year at my mom's house. This year it was a really nice warm day and the pressing went really fast with everyone helping. Then we played some old fashion games that Aunt Molly put together and celebrated Grandpa Jack's birthday with a BBQ and cupcakes. It was a lot of fun.
