Halloween Parties


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.

Family Party

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.

Contest Winners

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.


Dressed to the nines as little frogs, even down to the webbed feet.

Bobbing for Apples

This traditional Halloween party activity of bobbing for apples was foreign to the youngsters, so Uncle Jason had to demonstrate.

Successful Dunk

Once the ice was broken the competition began, each cousin trying to outdo the other.

Pumpkin Painting

Pumpkin painting wasn’t for everyone, but this little guy sure took it seriously.

Backyard Football

Mild weather encouraged outdoor activities as well.

Decorated Pumpkins

Another Halloween party in the history books.

Thought for the Day:  The biggest lie I tell myself is, “I don’t need to write it down, I’ll remember it.”
