Happy Halloween Early Birthday Party Noah!

We planned a Halloween party for Noah that turned into an early birthday party as well. A lot of thought and planning went into the party from the 3-D coffin invitations, to the creepy food and decorations, to the fun games and goody bags. Of course not much went as planned, but we still had a great time with lots of laughs. These are just a few pictures from the party.

The cousins: Noah, Sam, Lucy, Lily, and Molly. It was supposed to be a costume party, but that didn't last long and quickly they were shed.

These are "monster toes" little sausages wrapped in tortilla strips with ketchup for the toenail. We also made some "creepy peepers" which were deviled eggs with a big olive on them.

The kids were trying to guess how many candy corn there
were in the jar. There were 381 and Nick won with the
closest guess of 320. He got to keep the jar of candy corn!

The kids had a great time bobbing for apples so much so
that they were putting their apples back and doing it again.

The pinata game was hilarious! Each of the kids were blindfolded, Ed spun them around 3 times, and they got 3 swings at it. A couple of times it got knocked down, but it wouldn't break open. When it was Tanners turn we were certain that he would send it flying. So to keep fair for the little ones, Mark secretly took it down and Tanner didn't know he was swinging away at nothing. We were cracking up! Unfortunately, the pictures of that were pretty blurry, so just take my word for it, it was funny! Finally, after noone was able to bust it open, Mark helped it out with a few good whacks!
Here is Mark and Flat Travis after Mark planted a big kiss on him!
