Day 31. Last of Blogtoberfest!
I made it!
I spent the entire day at my DD's school helping out with the Halloween Dance. Didn't spend much time in the gymnasium, but I did keep the popcorn popping and the drinks flowing. Members of the Student Council sold cupcakes and other goodies.
It was a long day and I don't know if I am ever going to be the same again. The music was so loud that I had to stay in the kitchen most of the time. And if I ever hear M J's "Thriller" again I think I am going to scream! It was played for every group that came down to the gym during the entire day. But the kids were terrific! Only one drink spilled and a few popcorn puffs fell on the floor. They all came in costumes and danced their little hearts out. Here are some of the older students, my DD's grade 7/8 class.
The DJ was fantastic. He had appropriate music for the entire school population. Fun songs for the little ones and current music for the older group. I sang and danced and made a fool out of myself! But I had a blast! And now I am home and I think I could sleep for a week, but in an hour or so the Trick or Treaters will be knocking at the door.
Here is a photo of the cupcakes, cookies and muffins I baked. The light orange iced cupcakes are the ones I made. See that pumpkin in the background? I brought that to school this morning and my DD's class carved it for me. I am very grateful for that.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYBODY!
