Halloween 2014

We broke out of tradition this Halloween and spent the evening at my uncle's house rather than staying home.  We still dressed up, still answered the door to trick-or-treaters, and still hung out with friends, but we did it all at a different house!  We have been getting fewer and fewer kids each year and were looking forward to going somewhere with more action.

It was a lot of fun!  The evening started out pretty tame.  We managed to miss the excitement of greeting everyone by about 15 minutes.  My uncle's family had just left with their friends to go around the neighborhood.  Two of my cousins and my aunt's mom were there, so we chatted.  Kylen bided his time by eating and trying on a few masks from their collection.  They had a crockpot of potato soup, biscuits, cupcakes, and an assortment of snacks.

After my uncle's family and friends got back, things got more exciting.  We took a group shot.  Greg, Kylen, and I went with a gangsta' theme.

They had a bubblegum blowing contest.

Earlier in the day, my aunt and uncle had given a science demonstration at a couple of schools.  They did one for us right there on their kitchen counter.  It was possibly the coolest science demo I've ever seen.  Dry ice gas and dish soap combine to make huge bubbles.  They can be held too!

Some friends of ours arrived just in time for the demo.  We enjoyed introducing them to my uncle's family and welcoming them into the fun.  A little later, we played Family Feud followed by several rounds of  Murderer.  It was past midnight before we said our farewells and headed home with our heads full of happy memories.
