No Tricks, Just Treats at the 2013 Halloween Party!

After twenty-two years of Halloween parties, we've got this party thing down pretty good.  
 
Chris and I counted over 100 people in attendance Friday night.
 Our college niece and her friends were busy all night with their face painting duties.
 Thank you, Jenny. What are we going to do when you graduate from college this spring?
 We added some new carnival games this year.  The frog flinger game was very popular.
We also added a photo booth for the high schoolers.
The wand making station continued to be popular.
This is a shot of the prizes before they were distributed with each carnival game.
Everyone seemed to have a good time. 
I'll let a few of the pictures speak for themselves.
I was so busy playing hostess that I didn't take nearly as many pictures as I have done in years past. 
Chris came as Uncle Si from Duck Dynasty.  I recycled my cowgirl outfit from Josie's birthday party.
We rested up Saturday and then spent Saturday evening watching Emma's marching band perform at another competition.
At 11pm, we were in the high school parking lot for trunk or treat.
The van got decked out with lights, glow in the dark skeletons, Dracula and sound effects.  
  
It's been a busy weekend.  My extended family is coming this afternoon to see the decor and enjoy some treats.  Party ON and Happy Halloween from the Kenward household!
