Well, Halloweens over for another year, ( although I've still to take the decorations down ) 
We had a great time this year, as it was half term we didn't need to worry about bedtime routines and could relax and have fun. Adults and children! 
We split our celebrations into two nights, a small childrens party on the 31st, and our family party at the weekend! 
The childrens party was very easy, made up the table, easy food for the kids, hot dogs, pizza, homemade spicy veg soup for the grown-ups and of course cake to finish! We took the littles out Trick or Treating around our little close, we usually let our neighbours know we're visiting.
Even though I made up about 30 treat bags for any visitors we got, every single one of them is still here! Our little Close is a bit closed off so we don't always get any people venturing here but I live in hope every year nevertheless! 

Olivia playing up to the camera!

Seeing double!

I kept it simple, infested jellies, printed off some bottle labels, orange and skull candles and a halloween table cloth that cost a couple of pounds!
The kids had tons of fun, too many sweets and a late night which meant they stayed in bed a little longer the next morning!!

Onto Saturdays party, which led to me staying in bed a little longer on Sunday!!
We decorated my cousins house in the afternoon, and like me, she likes white! Not the easiest task to make a white house spooky, but we didn't do too bad! An old black chandelier she'd just had taken down came in useful! 

We did think about hanging a baby doll from a rope on the trees, but wasn't sure others would find it as funny as us, and didn't want social services on the doorstep so we vetoed that idea! I took all these photos in the daylight so they'd photograph better. I really did mean to take some pics at night but then a glass of bubbly was handed to me and that went out of the window! We were more interested in hamming it up for the camera in our costumes!

We used kits from Smiffys for these, and Lee's horror flesh needed more time to dry, but we were rushing, so overall don't think we did bad!

Auntie & Mum, 2 devils.... we're saying nothing!!

Those white contacts were really freaky!

Not great quality pics, but iPhones and a good amount of alcohol were involved! 
Hope you had some fun Halloween celebrations, but hope you weren't as poorly as I was the day after!!
