Halloween parties create a lot of angst. As an adult, there are other things to consider than just the candy. Especially in this day and age, with all of the social media, who knows where a picture of you in a silly costume might show up. Do you know the crowd that’s been invited? Do you trust them? Are you familiar with the party’s location? Answers to these questions force you into two extremes: 1) you wear something so elaborate and concealing that no one will recognize you, or 2) you put on the most minimal accessories to not embarrass yourself, but you stand out like a party pooper.
Apparently, even the family Halloween party is not exempt from these worries. Some of the younger kids (preschoolers) are already having second thoughs about dressing up, probably influenced by older siblings.
Thankfully, there are those that still get in the mood for a costume party. The frogs and flies were clever, and winners of the unofficial costume contest.

This traditional Halloween party activity of bobbing for apples was foreign to the youngsters, so Uncle Jason had to demonstrate.
Once the ice was broken the competition began, each cousin trying to outdo the other.
Pumpkin painting wasn’t for everyone, but this little guy sure took it seriously.
Mild weather encouraged outdoor activities as well.
