Halloween Party Pictures

It was a great weekend.. My dear friend was in town for a few days. Lots of running around and getting ready for the party. We set up the witch up front and was quite popular with the trick or treaters. My friend Bethany made a delicious meat pie while I baked the cupcakes. The guests later decorated them and then consumed. My bf was drinkin up the burbon and entertaining the endless visiting kids at the door saying "This is frankenpuppy!! and she wants to be your friend!!

Guests at Halloween party
Hawk and Daughter
Our house always looks a bit like Halloween all year round but come late summer and we add more webs, pumpkins and decorate our front window that faces the street. Since we've lived here it was bats, last year a skeleton and this year will be a bare tree with crows..
