This blog was started in 2008 when we did IVF for the first time to build our family after 5 1/2 years of infertility. We now have 8 and 2 year old boys (thanks to modern medicine) and we are enjoying our blessed life as parents ♥ In the summer of 2016 we took another huge step and moved across the country from Oklahoma to New York! This blog is about life and everything in between

A Halloween Inspired Gathering

Yesterday we hosted a little get-together of our friends over some creative snacks, spooky music, and a nasty looking drink only for the brave! Almost everyone wore their costume and we had a good time laughing and talking.

While I was in the kitchen, Nick carved a beautiful jack-o-lantern for the porch!

I found most of my snack ideas on the internet (or more specifically--Pinterest). Here are "eyeball carrots"

"Witch's Hat cookies"

"Mummy wraps"

I made an ice hand for the punch, but a finger broke off putting it in :(

And the drink of the evening was called "Brain Hemorrhage". Disgusting to look at and a little chunky to drink, it was not for the light-hearted!

Nick's costume was an ape...

My {homemade} costume was Jane of the jungle....

...and Brad was a zookeeper!

This is Chris who came as "chicken cord on blue"

Brad's cousin Zoe was there too

We had a good night with our friends, and hopefully they had a good time with us! We love the holiday season!
