When I asked Jon for suggestions as to what treat we should take, he had a sudden recollection and longing for cupcakes his mom used to make with some sort of creamy filling. I tried to recreate the cupcakes of his memory by making mini devil's food cakes injected with a creamy center and frosted with a cream cheese frosting.
It's always fun to see our friends in costume. The Roenfeldts, our hosts, always come up with something perfectly suited for the occasion. They create a true haunted house with fog machines, strobe lights, flying ghosts and even a crazed chain-saw man to jump out of the bushes just as you're approaching the door.
Our hosts, Mr. and Mrs. Grim Reaper
The Summers won the costume prize with their cute Potato Head creations.
The power tool pumpkin carving contest was lots of noisy, messy fun. Jon used a jig saw but others used drills and chainsaws. Jon even remembered to bring safety goggles. Good job, Honey!
We played games and ate lots of great goodies. It was a good time for all!
