Halloween Festivities

We had a very busy Halloween Week!
Here's what we were up to:

Brian was under the weather, so I got to go over to Miss Maizie's house and play with her all night while her mommy and daddy were working.

We had fun, but I'm glad I only have a dog to worry about right now.
These kids are hard work!

The Pieren family hosted a haunted house get-together at their family farm in Helvatia.
They worked really hard on it and you could definitely tell, it was SPOOKY!

Brian and I went as Ghosts!!
It was fun keeping people in suspense - they all were trying to figure out who the mysterious characters under the sheets were!
There were plenty of other SPOOKY characters!
We all had had a great time!
A big thanks to Sarah and Jason and the rest of the crew for all their hard work!

I had the privilege of attending a luncheon for Miss Audrin Gibler,
hosted by her sisters-in-law and her MIL, Margie.
AND finally got to meet little Ole John!
What a cutie pie!

::Saturday Evening:
Brian and I brought back the He-Man and She-Ra costumes from last year and drove to Hubbard for a Halloween Fiesta at Christina and Dan's!
What a fun night!
And what a busy week!

Check out these fun EYEBALLS I made to take to the parties we attended!

Boil your eggs like normal.
Remove the eggs from the water, let them cool a bit so you can handle them.
Crack the shells all up, but leave them intact on the egg.
Put the eggs back in the water with a tablespoon of vinegar and LOTS of red food dye.

Let the eggs soak in the red water for 20-30 minutes.
Remove the eggs and remove the shell fragments.
The red dye will have left veiny looking lines.
Cut the eggs in half the SHORT way, remove the yolks and make your deviled egg filling.
I used a small melon scooper to scoop the filling and plop it into the egg so it was round like an eyeball.
Cut pimento stuff olive in half for your irises and place strategically onto the yellow filling.
Place the EYEBALLS into a fun container and serve!
We got a lot of fun reactions with this dish!
