Halloween Party

This year we hosted a Halloween party at our house. It was so much fun. I decorated the house with colored light bulbs and cobwebs and had scary music playing. Everyone brought a scary treat, we had spider web bean dip, bat (chicken) wings, cobweb brownies, a cauldron with dry ice and more. I'm so mad I forgot to take a picture of all the fun food! Everyone dressed up as a couple. James and I were purple and green grapes. Mary and Casey were a witch and her broom. Dani and Dave were a witch and her cat. Shelley and Kimball were salt and pepper. Jonni and Chris were Nayda Suleman (octuplets mom) and her doctor Dr. Kamrava. Britt and Katies husbands couldn't make it so they came together as the biggest losers (won the costume contest.) Colton came as a biker dude. We played some fun games and we even learned the "Thriller" dance. Yes of course everyone threw a little fit at first about having to learn a dance, but it turned out really funny. The guys were hilarious to watch and I just had to post them dancing. I will probably be killed later but it was worth it! Thanks to everyone that came!!
Thriller Video. You have to love how James' balloons bounce at the end. It just cracks me up!

Pumpkin Patch

Saturday we went to the pumpkin patch with the Bates family and let the girls pick out a pumpkin. It was fun I have never been there before. We are definitely making it a family tradition to go every year now. Jaylee was so interested in her pumpkin for the family picture we could not get her to look up at the camera and this is the only one that Sheridyn didn't have her pumpkin right in front of her face! We are a very photogenic family. haha!
