Cracker Jack, Pumpkin Carving, and Caramel Apples!

       Today being Thursday meant another long school day.  I was in class from 9:00-11:15 and then went running with Kacey as well as went to the store to pick out a pumpkin.  I then came back and was in my Humanities class until 2:15.  After class Abby and I ran to Tesco to get a few ingredients for Jaelyn and then went to our culture class.  By about 4:30 we were finally done with school for the day and could start to get ready for out Halloween Party.  We ate dinner at 5:30 and then the party started at 7:30. 

       Laura, Kacey, Abby, and I had the idea to have a Halloween Party and it all came together perfectly with the help of Jaelyn and her cooking.  There were decorations throughout the main floor, Halloween music playing, and everyone dressed up or wore Halloween colors.  Jaelyn made a big pot of homemade Cracker Jacks for us to munch on, plus Terry put Treat bags together for us.  The activities for the party included carving pumpkins and making Caramel Apples.  The apples were a hit as were the assortment of toppings including chocolate shavings, white chocolate, crushed up HobNobs, cinnamon sugar, and crushed up pretzels.  Once everyone was done carving their pumpkins we took them outside, lit them, and placed them on the porch of 27 Palace Court.  As you can see, there were some really clever/cute pumpkins.  My favorite was probably Laura’s “27 Palace Court” pumpkin or Mandi and Rachel’s “Stonehenge” pumpkin.  It was a really fun night and I think the party was a hit.
