Halloween and Ren Fest

Halloween was a busy week for Jon and I.  I started a temp job at the Marriott Hotel that week, so my days were filled with work.  Thursday night before Halloween, we held a Halloween themed Recipe exchange at the house.  The few days before, Jon and I pulled out the Halloween decor to have the house decorated for it.  The exchange turned out pretty well.  We had a good turn out and had mostly pumpkin flavored items.  I made pumpkin soup.  Others brought pumpkin bread, pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, muffins, and some other items.

Friday night we had a movie night with friends.  Jon and I rented out the small movie theatre in the apartment complex for the evening.  We watched Arsenic and Old Lace, and were able to bring together some new friends with some old friends.  I think everyone enjoyed the movie.

Saturday was very eventful.  We took off to the Houston Ren Festival to enjoy the music, the decor, the shops, and all.  We dressed up as pirates again and roamed around. 

Afterwards we took off to the church's Trunk or Treat activity where Jon and I ran the judging for costumes, the pie eating contest, the pumpkin carving contest, and the decorating of the trucks.  It was so much fun to see every one dressed up.

Sunday after church, Halloween day, we visited with some friends and passed out candy.  It was nice to relax that evening after all the running around.  Next year though, I think we will need to have the big Halloween party again though.

We never made it to the Ren Festival this year. I've been once before it's such a fun time. Did you guys ride the elephant? The church party looked like it was fun. Sorry we missed that.
