Yesterday we hosted our annual Halloween party, the first ever in our new home. It was a pretty small crowd, because some folks had previous arrangements and others were sick, but it was a great time! I spent the afternoon chopping, baking and pureeing pumpkins to make soup and baked the seeds with cayenne pepper and salt. Both things turned out great!
The table was set with all manner of treats and drinks and barely a thing was left at the end of the night! We played a rousing game of Apples to Apples that lasted for several hours, it was nearly 3am and Joe and I were falling asleep in our chairs by the time we finished up and our guests were on their way.
Tonight, we'll be carving our annual jack-o-lanterns and I'll finish getting my altar ready to celebrate Samhain after the candy guzzling ghosts and goblins have stopped knocking on my door tomorrow evening. We spent entirely too much money on candy so I hope there's are hordes of them, otherwise my plan for weight loss may be in serious trouble!
