Last night’s pumpkin carving and Halloween food party was a success!
We packed up the kids, three pumpkins, and our Halloween food dishes and headed to my grandparent’s house, where we have had this party for the last few years.
Getting ready to go:
My aunt and uncle were supposed to fly out from California, but unfortunately couldn’t make it. Some story about a dog, a cow, and seeping wounds. Yeah, yeah, we’ve all heard that story before.
Everyone had such awesome Halloween food creations. I was proud of Danny this year for actually participating in the food portion of the night. It’s about time that you stared acting like you like my family.
Oh wait, you go on vacation with them every year and leave me at home.
Danny made little Frankenstein pudding cups. I love how these turned out! They are so cute. Which I’m totally sure is what he was going for. Okay, they can be manly cute.
This was definitely the most disgusting food creation of the night:
And surprisingly, this wasn’t made my dad. It was made by Katie, my grandparent’s friend and neighbor. So gross, but I actually ate one of those brownies and they were good.
My brother made eyeball cookies.
Crystal’s food won for best Halloween food. She made gross rats using Twinkies, chocolate frosting, and coconut.
I love these cupcakes that Marlene made. They are bloody glass cupcakes. How cool is that! The glass is actually edible.
My dish was really cheesy this year. No, seriously. I made a cheese ball.
Okay, it’s cheesy lame too, but at least it tasted “outstanding.” I’m quoting here because it was that awesome.
My pumpkin-shaped cheese ball:
My grandpa’s food came out awesome. How creepy is this:
After all the food fun, we moved onto pumpkin carving.
I’m pretty sure that I have this exact picture of my dad every single year. Except this year, he’s wearing glasses. Oh sorry, he calls them cheaters, the word glasses makes him feel old.
I worked really hard on my pumpkin:
Okay, okay, I made Danny carve my pumpkin.
The finished pumpkins:
Danny’s pumpkin. It’s Dracula:
My brother’s pumpkin. It came out so cute.
My dad’s pumpkin won for best pumpkin. I only have two words to say: thank goodness.
He carved the clown from It. His pumpkin looks eerily similar to his costume from last year.
My dad with his “best pumpkin” award:
Tonight is the Halloween party at my dad’s, complete with dead body in the bathtub. Can’t wait.
I’m off to get a few more things for my costume and work on all the last-minute details!
