1st Annual Halloween Party!


This past Friday we threw our first annual Halloween party. It is something Jon and I have always wanted to do, but never had the proper space and resources to do it. It was small but a lot of fun, and we can't wait to do it again, bigger and better next year.

We had a picture taking station where everyone got to be photographed as a keepsake.

 Donut eating contest!

I had also prepared a shoot the zombie game, and pin the wart on the witch game.

I had also bough several small pumpkins for the kids to decorate and take home.

My friend Michelle had prepared a birthday cake for her husband Joseph and me.

 The party was a success! 
We had so much fun with our friends, and can't wait til next year!

Halloween photshoot!

As most of you know, Jon and I love to celebrate Halloween. We have so much fun thinking of costume ideas and making them. This year the boys wanted to be characters from the book series "The Lord of the Rings", and since their costume took so long to make, Kiki had to settle for my Halloween costume when I was her age which turned out so cute, and Jon and I decided to reuse our old Rocker costumes.

Jon hard at work making Julien and Logan's arm bracers!

 As always there are tons of pictures. It is always so hard to pick which ones to post, and this time around I am only posting 1/3 of the best shots.

 Jon and I as Rockin' Machines!
