Halloween Candy = Already Gone

Or at least, the good stuff is.

Which made me think that perhaps I should have already blogged about Halloween.  But really, it is just that the good stuff went quickly…what, with three of us eating it and all.

So, here is the abbreviated version of Halloween in the Horcasitas Household:

I planned a Halloween Party.  I had to cancel this party two hours before it started.

Luckily, I was able to have it on Sunday.

Unluckily, only my loyal family still made it.  Alright, instead of each child getting a party favor, each guest gets a party favor!

Carlitos filled the ‘Skull Favors.”  Each guest was able to go home with a Halloween Ring on each finger, if they so desired.

The Bloody Mummy Toes went like hotcakes!

The Monster Fingers were pretty yummy, too.

Eyeballs and shriveled ears.  ( I know.  A bit of a stretch.)

Graveyard Pudding.  There may or may not have been worms and bloody fingers buried in there…

Those are just cupcakes.  Or, I guess I could at least call them ‘Halloween Cupcakes.’

I am just hoping you can see the AMAZING straws that I found at the dollar store.  I think they were my favorite part of the whole party.  (Other than our lovely guests, of course.)

Oh! And Carlitos and I made some bats out of egg cartons that my husband then hung from the fan.  Clearly, I intentionally made the photo dark.  Hello!!  Bat cave!!

And here were the hosts:

Triceratops!  (Anyone who dared refer to him as a banal ‘dinosaur’ got quite an earful.  The earful sounded something like this: “TRICERATOPS! I AM A TRICERATOPS!”)

THE cutest tiger in existence.

A witch in mourning.  (My husband was a skeleton.  Get it?)

So, there you have it.  The condensed version of our Halloween.  And if you need a sugar fix, our Carlitos’ Halloween candy may be gone, but there are plenty of leftover cupcakes, lollipops and gummy worms since the party guest list dwindled to six.  I know, I probably should have just canceled the party altogether, but it was nice to have a ‘family party’…plus, I just can’t help myself.  I friggin’ love throwing a party.

    Looks like a great party. I especially love the olives as eye balls and the bats on the fan.

  2. Thanks, Alissa! While the number of guests was…intimate, it was still a blast. And the bats are my fave, too! Wait until you see what we have coming up for future holidays…
