Halloween 2011, The Horrifying Party

Our Halloween party was a huge one this year. All the big events made a return, as well as the truly terrifying haunted garage. We had three kids in tears and LOTS of screams, so all in all, it was a big success. We’re still finding spiders and webs around the place, even after cleaning up twice!

Even the young ones got dressed up for the party!

We raised it up higher to try to increase its longevity... It helped, but not quite enough. RJ still got some powerful hits in.

    Hi,
    You have such a great blog! It is so full of love of your family. Really inspiring and heart warming. I would like to ask you to use one of the photos on a post about water games I would like to post on my facebook page. It is the photo of a girl dipping her head inside an apple bowl. I will give the photo a credit of course. I find it a really nice photo. It will be great on my party paperie design page. If you approve, please write me back. Thank you anyway, it was lovely to “meet” you.
    Maya, Israel.
