Halloween Party

 To make up for daughter's dreadful summer where she was pushed from pillar to post and didn't have any playdates with school friends, I decided to hold a Halloween Party for her and five school friends.  She was very excited and couldn't wait to dress up:

(Yes, that's hubby dressed as dracula!)

We decorated the house spookily:

And played Halloween music like "Thriller" and "Monster Mash".

The girls made eyeballs on stalks

And graveyard cupcakes:

They ate witches warts (popcorn) whilst watching our Halloween DVDs: "Scared Shrekless" and "Mutant Pumpkins".

Then they had a spooky tea consisting of:

Dead Men's Fingers (sausages in buns)
Dracula Juice (Vimto)
The aformentioned Graveyard Cupcakes and Eyeballs.
Worms in Slime (jelly worms in green jelly)

After tea they did traditional apple bobbing:

And finally, we went Trick or Treating around the neighbourhood.

A ghoulish time was had by all!

It sounds like a great night, Halloween has never been big in oz but building, and we enjoyed our first ever time trick or treating this year!

Polly - Halloween has grown in popularity here in the past few years (think it's the US influence), but it's certainly a good excuse for a party!
