halloween 2015


on saturday, my parents came up to our house to celebrate halloween.  we put halloween-themed lights up, decorated the house, and spent the afternoon cooking an array of appetizers for dinner which we ate in the living room as we sat on the couch and waited for trick-or-treaters to come.

in total we handed out candy to 179 trick-or-treaters!  we had a lot of fun handing out candy and seeing all of the different costumes that the kids were wearing.  homemade costumes are always my favorite.  of course, leko kept an eye on the trick-or-treaters too.

^when our families get together there's always a lot of food.  between us and my mom, we made: cranberry relish, spanakopita, salmon cakes, deviled eggs, coconut shrimp, waldorf salad, pot stickers, and baba ganoush.  it was all so good!^
^for dessert, we had pumpkin spice cupcakes with cinnamon cream cheese frosting decorated with leaf sprinkles!^
^lots of candy next to the front door ready for trick-or-treaters, and a notepad of course to keep tally of the number of trick-or-treaters.^
^looking out the front door, waiting for the trick-or-treaters to come.  since we went to las vegas this year, we decided that leko's "costume" would be the world's cutest golden nugget since we saw the world's largest golden nugget at the golden nugget hotel on fremont street in vegas.  he is the perfect color of gold, after all!^

hope everyone had a great halloween!
love, laurie

We had a great time making the food, eating the food, seeing all the costumes come to your door, and spending time with you guys.
