Read about other fun with our friends

On a whim we decided to do a Halloween party this year. Costumes were encouraged, but we made it clear that they were optional. We didn't want anyone to stay home just because they were not into the "dress up thing." It looks like we misjudged our friends. almost 100 people showed up to give the house a work over. This was the first party with the old door on the first floor re-opened and it worked out fantastically. We had plenty of room and the crowd just buzzed with conversation. Thanks to everyone who came. We might need to do it again next year!
