I don't think they had any idea how much bigger this event would become!
Instead of a few dozen, they had several hundred people packed in the Community Center and on the surrounding lawns. Baby Doll won the sack race and she chose a pumpkin from the almost gone pile to decorate. We only had about half an hour to play before we had to pick up Curly from football practice.
Baby Doll came straight from dance, so she didn't have a jacket and she was cold. I figured none of my kids had a chance to win with their costumes, so I left them in the capable hands of Bossy and Gamer, Dog Walker and Cat Lover, and headed home with Baby Doll after picking up Curly.
Drama Queen made a super fun meal with tacos, graveyard bean dip, and brain-like jello.
We were just sitting down to eat when Dog Walker and Cat Lover came through the front door. He had WON second place in the costume contest! His win included a $25 Target giftcard and a cup filled with Halloween candy. I will have him show you his costume tomorrow. He designed it himself and it is quirky and fun and obviously a prize-winning ensemble.
