Halloween 2014

We decided we wanted to be a festive family for Halloween this year. However, most of the month has been filled with school and work, so most of our free time is spent eating, sleeping, and watching an occasional episode of Criminal Minds on Netflix. BUT! We decided to throw a Halloween party with some friends from school and our ward. Take that, monotony! On Halloween, our ward had a small party and chili cook-off that we were supposed to help out with, so we went to that dressed as Real Salt Lake fans, cause that's legit. 
After the party, we came home and finished prepping everything for our party That included getting dressed in our real costumes.

 Trisha and I made some creative appetizers that she found on Pinterest: banana ghosts, with chocolate chips for the eyes and mouth and little pumpkins made of oranges and sliced celery for the stem. Trish also made a green slush drink that looked pretty spooky. And to top off the food, we bought a jack-o-lantern pizza from Papa Murphy's, it was pretty cool! We ate, talked, and played group games for most of the night. We had a lot of fun celebrating with good friends (and pretty tasty food!) And now, we can officially celebrate CHRISTMAS!!!!!!! I've included some pictures from the party, we also had a Russian babushka, a lumberjack, and Medusa that we forgot to take pictures of. Cripes!
