Halloween Pumpkin Carving Party

     Wow what a turn out! We had about 35 people over and sadly the weather didn't cooperate! So.... we had a lot of people trying to find corners to carve their pumpkins but they managed and they all turned out great. So an afternoon spent with friends turned out great! Thought I would share a few photos, enjoy.

A few of my wonderful friends and my sister in her costume.
Our Youngest little guest, Tori dressed as a little spider! With her mama Megan.
My sister made this wallhanging. You can't see it but the spider web is stitched with Glow in The Dark thread and she also made her own bat buttons.

Apple Cider Recipe

1 Quart Apple Juice
2 cups Cranberry Juice
1/3 cup packed Brown Sugar
4 whole cloves
2 cinnamon sticks (3 inches)

In a large saucepan, combine the apple juice, cranberry juice and brown sugar. Place cloves and cinnamon sticks on a double thickness of cheesecloth, bring up corners of cloth and tie with kitchen stringto form a bag. Add to pan.
Bring to boil over medium heat. Reduce heat; simmer uncovered for 20 minutes.

I like to put it into a crock pot and let it simmer and keep warm.
