The Pumpkin Party

As you all probably have figured out by now, we like Halloween. And because my Neice and little Parker were coming to visit, we had to welcome the Great Pumpkin and celebrate with a big shindig. We all had a blast and I'll say it again, it was utter Chaos!
The little pumpkin checking out PugsLee. Ain't he cute!
A portion of the goodies. BTW, those are brain matter cupcakes. We had to strongly encourage the children to try the cupcakes. I think the gray frosting is a little gross looking to them.
I uploaded this pic to show you the sign that my Hubby made. But lets not overlook this adorable Strawberry Shortcake.
One of the kids asked Witchy Poo what it meant "fatten the children". She just handed him a candy bar and pinched his fingers for doneness.
This was the drink table. There were a few brave souls. Most seemed to prefer the "Zombie Virus".
Oh No, Witchy Poo caught a little helpless child!
Looks like that Zombie juice is already working! Someone should tell the Red Queen to look out.
At the last minute, a 49er and his squaw showed up. He was afraid to live his trap outside. He thought this end of town was a little iffy.
This little zombie was after PugsLee and any adult legs walking by. Ewww, scary!
This years fireplace display. It was used by Witchy Poo to stir up a few potions and Lots of trouble!
It was a great night, but the best part? It only comes once a year!
Take care, Brandie

Wow, looks like you all had a blast! What a wonderful way to serve the drinks. YOu come up with the best ideas!!!!
I use to have brain and heart jello molds, but sent them to my son in TX...since we don't have a party to go to. They looked real and the directions told you how to mix the jello for the right color...peach with green food coloring and vanilla pudding for the brain. People either love it or were totally grossed out, which is the point after all, no?

Party was amazing! The good was delicious, and it was so much fun! You're the best witchy aunt I got, the rest aren't witchy so much as b!$&#y. Parker loved it! I think he'll like it more when he can partake in the brain cupcakes.
