Our friends had a Halloween party last weekend. They have one almost every year. This year it worked out perfectly. The kids had two days off school so we could go stay with them for two whole nights. Denise got all kinds of minute to win it games together. And there was lots of yummy food. Of course there was the Royals game to watch too. Here are some of the costumes.
The host and hostess and their kids were The Incredibles. We asked if this was their pregnancy announcement because they were missing the baby, Jack Jack. They emphatically said no, but they considered borrowing Devin for the night. Devin does act a lot like Jack Jack. Totally sweet and then all of a sudden firey mad.
Take a second to see if you can figure this one out on your own……………………………That’s right. Queen of spades………………………….Yep. Jack of diamonds……………….Got it yet???……………….Pinochle!!! We play so much Pinochle with this group of friends and family. This costume was perfect!
These two are tourists. You need a little background for this one. They went on a cruise a few weeks ago. You know, the one with the nurse that worked at the hospital where the Ebola patient was. And they wouldn’t let the ship dock in Mexico. And they helicoptered out a sample of her blood to have it tested. Negative thank goodness! Thus the medical safety masks.
This is my brother and sister-in-law. He is Waldo and she is the person looking for Waldo. It’s even cooler because he grew up in the town of Waldo, so whenever he tells people where he’s from they literally say, “Where’s Waldo?” This was the funnest. He photo bombed everyone’s pictures all night so Waldo appeared in lots of the pictures. Here’s some where he’s hiding. See if you can find him.
Here’s my nieces as the cutest football player and cheerleader you’ve ever seen. The football jersey was actually her dads that he wore in high school.
Denise had so many cute snacks there. Here are the broomsticks.
The pumpkin poo that she had was pretty tasty.
My niece put together some pretty awesome treats too. Here are some that she brought. I think she may be a chef some day. She loves to make stuff. And it’s good!

Then we played a partner game. All the ladies went into a room and wrote down the first thing that came to mind when Denise said ten different words. Then we went in with the guys and our spouses had to guess what words we wrote down. It was entertaining to hear some of the answers and to see the reactions of the couples as they missed or guessed right. Jeremiah and I ended up in a tie breaker with another couple. We ended up winning though!! It was fun and I got to know some of the couples that I didn’t know a lot better with this game.
It was such a good time. Halloween is a super fun holiday. I mean, you get to dress up and act like a kid again. I love putting our costumes together and then getting to see what everyone else does.
