Halloween 2009

For Halloween this year, we invited a few other families over for dinner and trick-or-treating. We ended up with nine little girls and three little boys--Abigail and Juliet were in heaven.

We did a potluck dinner beforehand--Neil and I made a couple of soups and then asked the other families to bring rolls and fruit. Then we all headed out for trick-or-treating. Oddly enough, all the little girls were dressed in something involving floating layers of tulle. Can't imagine how that happened...

When we came back, I fried up some whole-wheat scones covered in powdered sugar, and Neil made his famous mulled cider.

And Juliet, taking full advantage of the fact that her parents were distracted, ate candy to her heart's content. She's pretty good at maximizing her mouthfuls, as you can see here.

Of course, she got a good start before the party even she is plotting her assault on the centerpiece.

Anyway, it was a lovely party, and so fun to not only have friends for dinner and trick-or-treating, but to chat with them afterwards while all the kids were happily occupied with dolls and dressups.
And now I need to go because we have some friends from Provo coming over for dinner in half an hour! Busy weekend, but that's how we like it.

We had such a great time! Can't wait to find an excuse to get together again. The food was AMAZING! You're quite the hostess.

I think you should post the scone recipe. They luck scrumptious. And I love the green table! Did you ever see the green piano on Design Mom? I totally want to paint a piano aqua or peacock blue now.

Ashley, I just use whole-wheat bread dough for the scones--I let it rise for the first rise and then pull it out into scones and fry it!
