Halloween Party!!

Last year some friends of ours put together an adult Halloween party and it was a huge success, and so this year they planned another one. With extra time I made a poodle skirt with matching shirt and petticoat, and I borrowed some saddle back shoes (thanks Alicia.) I then forced my husband to go as a bald greaser. LOL After being Leeroy Jenkins from Utube last year I had to help him out this year. For the party I was in charge of making the homemade root beer as well as a dessert. (I learned: don't make your cake too cute because than nobody wants to eat it!) During the night we ate desserts, we played some games (witch hunt, donut eating contest, guess your husbands feet, and others) and visited outside as well as inside. Then the men all concluded with the traditional ping pong in the garage. It was a really great party- one I will always look forward too! We had a photographer there to take the pictures check out her website here. Thanks Janae- the pictures below were taken by her as was another hundred or so. The creativity with the outfits this year was awesome. We had everything from traditional to political to polygamists. As you will see by the slide show we were in stitches all night long.
