Halloween Party 2011

Last Friday night Rick and I had our annual Halloween party. We had a marvelous time!! We started out with dinner and had Chicken Tortilla Soup and Aunt DeeAnn's famous Clam Chowder with some breadsticks on the side. We had shrimp cocktail, taquitos, and orange chicken for appetizers. Rick was in charge of the homemade rootbeer (which is always a big hit) and Karen served up a baked apple dessert while Kathy made a pumpkin dessert as well as a chocolate bundt cake. All of Rick's siblings and their spouses were able to make it. (and most of them actually came in costume....yay) One thing that I LOVE about the Phelps family is that they are not afraid to laugh:) After dinner we played a game of clue charades and laughed like crazy!! In the pictures below you will see Hal acting out John Wayne (actually he thought he was acting out Roy Rogers but I guessed John Wayne and that turned out to be right). Brad and Rick are swinging their hips trying to be Elvis. Janice is in the dentist chair. Darrell and Darla are pretending to be cold. Karen is the headless horseman and Ruth is building an igloo. We had a great night with food, family and fun!!


  1. GREAT PARTY, Janell!! Thanks so much for having it for us each year--we LOVE it!! That sure was a FUN game this year!! We always have tons of laughs no matter WHAT we do, but this game was sure something to laugh over!! Thanks for the post--good pictures!! Love, Karen
