Hence, the birth of what is now known as Mom-Mom's Halloween Party. I think this year's event (which was held on Saturday) was either the 4th or 5th Annual Halloween Party.
It consists of activities, games, food, and of course, desserts and candy.
The kids started by painting pumpkins (this is my almost 8 year old nephew's pumpkin) which would then become the centerpieces for the buffet table.

Dinner was "mummy dogs" (hot dogs wrapped in dough), baked beans, vegetable lasagna, salad, and breadsticks.
We brought these Halloween sugar cookies, as baked by my super-talented friend who owns
There can never be too many desserts. We had a cupcake tower (including several pumpkin whoopie pies by Michelle), the sugar cookies, a chocolate cake, and pumpkin pie.
Dunking a cookie into my coffee. Boo got a kick out of a cookie being named for him (and yes, he did ask where the Betty was).
Thanks again for making Halloween such a special treat, Mom!
