We have chili with all the fixings every year ( Fritos, cheese, sour cream, onions), we had queso and dips and chips and Todd cooked a brisket and chopped it up for BBQ sandwiches. They were heavenly! I made sangria again like last year and it was delicious. We didn't do a beer keg this year instead we bought cases of beer with different types.
We had lots of fancy cheeses and salamis and crackers. No one went hungry that's for sure!
The theme for costumes this year was to dress from an era. It's funny because last year was the first year I had a theme for costumes and it was the biggest turnout for people dressing up. I think if we narrow things down, people like that better. Now you'll always have people go against the grain and dress up that's nothing to do with theme but we don't care. Halloween is supposed to be fun and no pressure. A night to be whatever you want to be.
Todd and i dressed up from the Greek/ Roman time period. I bought our costumes and accessories from EBay. I normally always make my own costume but I just have so much going on I didn't feel bad that I cheated.
We had about half the people show up this year than last year but we had many that were sick. The bug is going around here in Dallas pretty strong. We also were having torrential rain storms and flooding and I just don't think people liked getting out in it. Luckily, it stopped raining that evening and it didn't rain all night.
We had a total of 27 people and it was a nice group of friends. I'm so happy for those who came. I have only the picture that I took and a few that some have sent me. So here ya go:
It was so much fun and we announced at the party what next years theme is: MASQUERADE. I have no idea how to decorate the house but I have a year to figure it out.
Have a great Monday y'all!!
