Catholic Moms Halloween Potluck

Posted on Monday, October 19th, 2009 at 3:52 pm

I had the Catholic moms group over today for a Halloween Potluck. It was a lot of fun and I met some new people, including one mom that goes to the Byzantine church! Very intriguing. Here are some pictures.

Their first mistake was allowing me to provide the drinks.

Let me make a note regarding the icy hand. Just so you know, the fingers are very breakable. If you ever make these you have to be very careful when removing the icy from the latex glove. You kind of have to let it thaw for a while and then be really careful as you remove the glove. Out of 4 hands, not even one made it into the pot in one piece. Fortunately the missing digits only added to the horror. And yeah, I just noticed that I misspelled “Elixir” on my label. Apparently calligraphy pens don’t come with spell check. Go fig.

Here is Ivy as a Dragonfly. The story of how I made the entire costume with household items will amaze and delight you, if I ever get around to posting it.
