Fright Night! Read on if You Dare!

Tonight we went to an outrageously spooky Halloween Party, mostly with friends from the ward. Richie was an attractive Magician and Mylie was his sweet little rabbit in a hat. ADORABLE!
















At the party we voted for best costume. The Merrell's dressed as Star Wars characters, and the vote was unanimous for their winning...except for one vote...the one vote that Richie voted for Mylie. I got a good laugh out of that one!



















We also participated in festive games like a Candy Corn Catching contest, a couples Who Could Eat the Doughnut Fastest contest, and a Find the Reeses Pieces in the Pile of Whip Cream contest. I guess all the games were little contests. I accidentally cheated at the Candy Corn game by throwing extra Candy Corn that wasn't my team's to throw.
















Richie was mad that I didn't put more effort into eating the doughnut more quickly...goodness we made a game plan right before that I would hold the hanging doughnut in place while he gobbled it up!





























Richie won the Reeses Pieces contest hands down. He threw his face in the whip cream and came up with the Reeses Piece in .08 seconds flat. Pretty amazing if you ask me.

























To top it all off we had delectable goodies that everyone brought, from taquitos, egg rolls, cookies, and caramel popcorn, to jello eyeballs and pretzel fingers with green cheese fingernails.










Thanks Slivka's for the most funnestest Halloween party EVER!

Sounds like a great time. I am so happy little Mylie got to wear the costume I bought over a year ago when I thought Landon was going to be a girl. (Before the ultrasound, of course) He tricked us. Anyway, she looked adorable. Richie too. What was your costume?
Love you! Mommas

Reminds me of the good old days when the Oldham's and us used to have such fun and amazing Halloween parties! I LOVE Mylie's bunny cosume! That was very clever to have Richie be the Magician and Mylie the rabbit. Were you a Hawaiian dancer?
