Halloween Party 2008

We had our annual Halloween party Saturday. It was a pretty low-key affair but we had lots of friends in costumes and good food. I made corn chowder from the Year of Crockpotting website but I used vegetable broth rather than chicken of course and also tossed in a can of diced chilies. I think that everyone enjoyed the chowder (except perhaps myself and Molly). Other than that we had cheese and crackers, fruit, and pumpkin cupcakes which Asher helped make.

Asher reprised his Stuart Little costume and didn't want to take it off all day even when the party was over. Chiara was Pebbles once again and I broke out my costume - note the hockey jersey, baby, and lipstick. Got it?

Will brought Avelyn and Keegan who didn't want to put on his costume but finally did just so I could take a picture.

Owen was a football player, specifically Colt McCoy (he said) and he and Asher really got into playing trampoline.

Maggie, Jay, Molly, Leah, and Dylan came up from Houston as well. Molly was Tinkerbell, Leah was Belle, and Dylan was a spider but I didn't get a single good picture of him.

Daniel reprised Asher's dragon costume and Joey showed up as the big dragon.

And we were thrilled to have Angelique and Jayden eat the bottoms of a few cupcakes.

It was an awesome party.

Sorry we could not make it, but Kaya woke up at 4:30 and he was not in a great mood. The costumes are awesome and it looks like both the kids and the adults had a great time.

Hockey mom with lipstick...FUNNY!!!!!!!!!

I am going to have to try that corn chowder, it sounds yummy. It is also something that I can serve the two vegetarians in the family.

ABC - Thanks. We went to a friend's house this weekend and she did a soup with cauliflower and potatoes and she blended it as well. I guess the blending is the secret to getting a creamy soup. I hope the family enjoys the corn chowder.
