Welcome Autumn Party

Sunday, October 24, 2010

e got some a small group together for our "farewell to summer and hello autumn party". My cousin Sharon with my son Brody who seems to enjoy supervising. But alas, supervisors need to be trained in the tasks also, he didn't seem to mind although the hotdogs were a bit over done!

My cousins Vicki and Butch contemplating the possible risks of roasting hotdogs! Butch accused Vicki of wearing his warm jacket--WIMP!

It was a bit chilly (62-65F) but boy did we have fun! Hotdogs, the works potato salad, baked beans, jalapeno chips, cauliflower and bacon salad and the list goes on...

Here is George with his grandson Blake. Blake was a joy to have, he roasted our marshmallows to suit for our s'mores. Yum! We offered a variety of treats from plain , roasted coconut, and strawberry marshmallows and chocolate bars or peanut butter cups for any combination of s'mores. I guess everyone was just too full to taste the caramel apples!

Some people come to parties hoping to bypass the cameras...she didn't hide fast enough!! By that smile I'd say she was having fun even if she was shivering a bit:-)

  All in all I'd say it was a success! Even though the weather and the hot cider were both cold, the company was warm and refreshing. Blake (Sharon and George's grandson) was a push-over for roasting our marshmallows for the s'mores. I think this just might be an annual thing for our family.
