The cutest pugs at the party!
My pumpkin cake I made for the party! It looks cute but was pretty gooey in the middle, even though I stuck a toothpick in the middle. Oh well!

Halloween Party!

On Saturday evening, Jason and I hosted a Halloween party for our young adult group at church. Our groups consists of young adults college-aged through thirties and includes both married couples and singles. It it a great group!

We had a great turn-out–somewhere around 25 people. Most everyone showed up in costume, which was great fun! The winner of “best costume” was a bubble bath–our friend wore a white sweatsuit with white balloons attached. She was also wearing soap, a sponge and a rubber ducky. Very cute and creative!

Jason and I were the Incredibles! We plan to dress up on Halloween to pass out candy also. We are super excited–we have never had trick-or-treaters before!

And we had the cutest pugs at the party! Oscar was a prisoner and Daisy was a lady bug. Poor Daisy, though–her costume didn’t fit too well. She is just too big around her chest!

(I am trying to post pictures but Blogger is not cooperating. Will try again later!)

Happy Halloween!

Greetings, and welcome to the Halloween edition of Bloggy Parade of Homes! We love Halloween at our house and love Halloween decor. We aren’t quite finished (spider webs and more lights to come) but here is where we are now.

Our front porch with the lights. I found the arch, the big spider and the “boo” sign all on clearance at Linens and Things for $10 each! I love bargains!

The Halloween candles have taken over the candlesticks!

We have many more decorations but Blogger decided to stop cooperating, so I will add more later. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Guess Where We Went?!

To our first Broncos’ game!

Jason and I attended our first NFL game on Sunday night. The Broncos played the Raiders, and it was great fun! The weirdest thing happened, though. We were there a few minutes early and found our seats (up at the very tip top, one row from the top). We sat down and ate some dinner (brats and nachos, yum). People were streaming in all around us, and the seatholders to the left of Jason came in and sat down. We looked over, and it was one of our neighbors! Crazy, isn’t it?! Out of all 76,125 seats, we were right next to someone we know. Unbelievable!

We had a great time and look forward to the next time we are able to go to a game.
