Part 2 - Annual Coombs Family Halloween Bash


Usually when we hold our family Halloween party - - we play an intense game of Fear Factor.  
You can read all of the gross details HERE.

We wanted to keep it clean this year {and especially didn't want anyone barfing in the yard over gross things tasted} so we switched things up with a Pumpkin Carving Contest.


The kids had A LOT of fun helping the adults do this.
{Yes - - that one on the bottom left says 'Poop'. I won't name names but it was one of Joe's brothers.  The kids thought it was hysterical!}

 

All 6 of the finished pumpkins lined up!
We had our neighbor come over and judge who's she thought was the BEST......


....and she picked my Father-in-Law's!!!!
Super clever - - it's the one with the 'barf' coming out.


I also handed out a little Halloween Trivia game at the start of the evening. You can find the game I used HERE

The winner of THAT game proudly went home with this...


From Target.
Doesn't that look......gross?

We also had a 'GUESS THE M&Ms in the JAR' contest.
I purchased this jar from Target....


And filled it with 3 big bags of peanut butter M&Ms.
The person who's guess came CLOSEST without going over got to take the filled jar home!

{Note: 3 bags of pb M&Ms = roughly 542 pieces. 
I was secretly hoping Joe would win.}

The party favors I made were super simple.


I found some cute paper loaf pans at JoAnns for 70% off and made my favorite Pumpkin Chocolate Chip bread.

Tied it up with a little tag and....wa-lah!
