Indoor Entertainment for the Kids

For the past five years, my mom and step-dad have put on a fabulous Halloween party the weekend before the actual holiday.  Crafts, snacks, games, a campfire cookout and a spooky hayride through the woods are highlights of this very fun event.  It's become something to look forward to for the 75+ people who usually attend.  This year was the first year we've had to cancel the party ... Rain, rain, and more rain kept us from decorating, being able to start a campfire, or take the Gator around the wooded trail.

Lots of folks were sorely disappointed.  My cousin's daughter cried when she found out and several friends were left feeling 'stranded' without their annual Halloween party.  Trey was especially concerned as it has become tradition for his dear friend Madilyn to attend the party and spend the night, too.  He was thrilled and relieved to learn that Madi would be able to come whether we had the outdoor party or not.  In the end, the kids still had a good time by improvising indoors.

The kids entertained themselves by ...
... working on some indoor crafts ...

... competing in some indoor gaming ...

... making a Conga line with Landri the Labradooodle ...
... creating pumpkin creatures on the back porch ...
... playing a few games of Pokemon cards ...
... and watching a movie before bedtime!
