Halloween 2010

Saturday night we threw a last-minute Halloween party.  By “we” I mean entire neighborhood. The best part? It was all Madaghan’s idea.  Laurie and I decided after the Summer Bash there would be no more parties for a year while we concentrated on finishing the bar. That hard and fast ruling lasted one week, when Madaghan asked ” Mommy, can I have a Halloween party”?
Sure ya can my sweet cherub. We said we would have a small one, not invest alot of money, one keg instead of two, no new liquor, etc etc. That thought came and went too. 
Special thanks to my friends that contributed to a great Halloween get together!
  • AJ (Duckhand) for the use and help set up of the tents, fire pit, lights and general baffoonary.
  • Joey G for a big load of wood yet again.
  • Bonnie G for a big tray of Ziti
  • Nicol S for trays of chicken wings
  • Becky and Amy F for the pinata and dry ice in the pumpkin.
  • Meg H for black and orange jello-shots, black and orange table cloths
  • Doug & Shaun M for the use of their patio heater
  • Rob for wiring the dimmer switches and so we can turn the lights down low…AND for bartending!
  • Sista’ Diane for making the kick ass knock out egg rolls.
  • Doug M and Mike F for the scary walk and fire works!

We had a lot of fun! I regret not taking any pics of the scary walk because Doug M and Mike F really outdid themselves putting the whole thing together. We had the kids walk down the long driveway and about halfway Doug  remotely lit off fireworks from the bottom of a dried up pond. Then, the kids continued on down the path where we had fog, scary ghosts, black -lighted spider webs, various people jumping out of the woods and other various ghoulish displays. They were so happy and cheerful watching the fireworks in the beginning, then we made them scream and cry, the way Halloween oughta be. Of course, this scary walk is version 1.0. V2.0 does not come out until Halloween 2011, with massive improvements. We’re talkin’ chainsaws and orange jumpsuits. We want the adults scared too.

 Here is some more bonus pics:
