halloween party

here are some of the halloween party pics my friend sarah and i threw a couple weekends back...all out of order of course. haha.  it was a lot of fun to plan.  halloween is one of my favorite holidays...so it's always great to have a halloween party!  it was family-oriented, and everyone dressed.  we served dinner, desserts and treats!  had games, crafts and activities for the kids.  it was a lot of fun watching the kids play and hanging out with all of our friends!
the hosts :)
my family was the flinstones :)
our friend janelle made these adorable owl cupcakes! 

my sister, melissa, made all of these delicious pies!
we set up a studio area so all of the families, kids and friends could take pictures and have them as a keepsake.

the kids' drink area...they each got their own monster cup and could choose between pink lemonade or apple cider :)
