Halloween Cooking Club & Block Party

Halloween fun this year started off with a Halloween cooking club dinner at my house. Everyone brought something with fall flavors, and we enjoyed a delicious autumn feast! Then we drank wine and played games in front of the fireplace. Around midnight, Summer and I suited up in our poodle costumes and headed up to Block Party to check out the scene. It was a very spooktastic Halloween! Check out the pictures for cooking club deliciousness and block party craziness.

Indian Summer Run (as poodles!)

Missy, Summer and I ran the Indian Summer Run 5k this year dressed as poodles! Friday ran with us too! Thanks to Missy and Erick for most of these photos. Summer and Friday:

Ben ran as well, but not dressed as a poodle.

Off we go!


Missy and I crossing the finish line:

Missy holding Ben's race number. He came in 7th!!

Off to Tony's for some post-race Irish Car Bombs.

I wasn't really competing in the ICB race, because my stomach felt a little weird from eating a giant sandwich before running the 5k on a hot sunny day, covered in fur. So Summer kicked my ass!

But there are NO LOSERS with Irish Car Bombs!!

Four poodles, chilling at the bar.

Thinking about poodle stuff.


After the beers, Summer came over for some cornhole. I set up the self-timer on my camera, ran to the other side of the yard to throw one, and I will have you know that the bag I am tossing in this picture went STRAIGHT into that hole. CORNHOLE!


Mom decorated their house for Halloween, and it is ESPECIALLY spooky this year. This morning, the lighting was the spookiest.

Cornhole Tournament

Tonight, Cheryl hosted a Cornhole Tournament! Trick or Treat!

There were 18 players! It was huge!

Bob was on the winning team, and the prize was an Abba performance by John, Cheryl and Chuck!


Full moon!


The grand prize winner, Bob.

The other part of the grand prize was a big giang hug attack from John!

Oh no! Bob has his hair!

Ben entertained us with some wiener tricks.

Behind the back!

Bull horns!

Through the legs!

WHAAAAAAAT?! John disappeared for awhile and returned wearing CHERYL'S Abba costume!!

The grand finale portion of the grand prize (or maybe revenge for stealing his wig?) was a lap dance! Lucky Bob!

Then Ben and John shared a plate of cheesy potatoes and we called it a night.
