Adults only Halloween!!!!

Dave and I love to have good times with friends. That's one great thing about Halloween. It's a holiday that lends itself to great parties! This weekend it was our turn to raise the roof. Ever since the Halloween party we had with friends while in dental school I've wanted to have another. I wish we had a bigger house. It was so hard to narrow down the invitations to three couples. Fortunately some of our friends made it easier on us by being out of town or by just getting into town. I only wish we could have invited everyone! We invited three couples that we knew would make for great company to the house for dinner and games. I started cooking at 1:00 and finished at 7:00, 30 minutes after our guests had arrived. So much for hair and make-up!!!! Thank goodness Dave was home to help! Either I am a very slow chef or I need to hire help, maybe I need to hire help because I am a very slow chef! I will never know how restaurants can cook for so many people at once. We asked our guests to arrive in costume or in black to fit with the festivities. As you can see everyone jumped on board. I wish you could see the back of Dave's bowling shirt!! We had such a relaxing conversation at dinner. I think the combination of all the personalities was fantastic! Games were great. We played pictionary and a family favorite "Famous People" (similar to Disney charades). I would have to say that the funniest part of the evening was watching Mary shake her hips to Elvis's Hound Dog and Watching Nathan flop around on the floor like a mermaid out of water. Man I love our friends! We asked all of our friends to bring a Jack-O-Lantern to the party for a contest. Please see the photo and the picture on the side bar and help us choose the winner! The winner gets a plate of carmel apples, YUM! Once again three cheers for Halloween!
