It’s all fun and games with a twist this Halloween

Welcome to the annual Halloween Blog Party hop sponsored by A Fanciful Twist. Come stay, play and eat for awhile, and then hop over to the other parties you’ll find.

For now, walk up to the door.  Don’t be scared by the warning.  The zombies just cross the sidewalk; they don’t come inside the house.

Greeted on the other side by our host, Sehlat.

“Welcome to my 6th Halloween party here.  Tonight is just about fun and games.  Come in, come in….”

“Are you hungry?” he asks.  “There’s a buffet table in the other room.  Help yourself to some finger food.”

“The coffin dip is on the kitchen counter.  Don’t worry about the crypt keeper.  He just hangs around.”

In the living room, there’s a furious game of Scrabble in progress.  Snufflet and Finse keep score, but they’re in third place.  Lasso is last for the moment.  Socks is winning by 9 points, and she is quite happy about that.

Blue places her tiles for a score of 6, and the fourth round begins.

Snufflet and Finse study their tiles intently….

On the other side of the room, a game of Jenga has just started.  Boo Peeps celebrates his skill removing the his block.  It’s Snuff’s turn, so he looks up and studies the tower.  Otter, Brownie and Frost offer suggestions as they pace around the structure.

There’s a warm, smoky smell coming from the kitchen. Appetizers are out of the oven.

2015Halloween-MummyOverview

“My famous homemade Mummitizers,” Sehlat says, straightening his shoulders as he sets the tray down. “There are two types: savory and sweet. The sausage wraps are ones are a tad smoky. The banana ones have a touch of hazelnut spread to them. Be sure to take a napkin because the mummies are known to leak the sauce out onto your fingers.”

It’s tough to say “Thank You” with a full mouth, but a nod is enough for Sehlat. With a smile and nod back, he takes off the oven mitts, grabs a nutty mummy and wanders into another room to mingle.

In the parlor, Whiffer and Ploppers hover over a handheld game. They’re playing Nintendogs on the special pink paw Nintendogs Nintendo DS console, a unit that was a limited edition.

On the screen, Rosie the dachshund has been fed, washed, and now decides between a nap or playing ball.

Wades, Tuesday, Prickles and Ice start a game of Clue.

2015Halloween-Clue-All

“Clue is a murder mystery game,” says Wades.  “Does anyone object to a more appropriate setting?

“Not at all,” says Prickles.  “What did you have in mind?”

“This,” says Wades, and with a click flick of her wrist, the black light turns on.

“What do you think?” she asks.

“Oh, this is much better,” says Prickles.

“Spooky-eerie,” says Tuesday, smiling beneath his mask.

“Indeed,” says Ice.  “Let’s roll.”

“Desserts are ready,” says a booming voice in the kitchen. Frankenpudding with tart orange cider.

Hyde has already wandered over to the freshly-dipped caramel treats. He’s a favorite of the nut covered ones, but the smooth caramel looks enticing tonight.

“It’s a football Saturday,” Catnap tells new lion. “Before Penn State takes the field, let’s get in some practice now.”

If you’re looking for more games, there’s a pile in the corner, and there’s lots of Guys around to join in the fun.

Sehlat calls the partygoers over for a round or three of group MadLibs.

Friendship. Games. Chocolate. Makes for a good party. Hope you’ll be staying for awhile….

    I too loved all the dip and I have some new fun ideas to put in place for Halloween. I loved the dip coffin and the cheese fingers and the little face cups. Well done. Joni

      I helped myself to too-many of the bananut mummitizers, so I’m glad there was plenty of Frankenpudding for all. Thanks for visiting the party. We’re glad to have you!

      Yes, it seems the Frankenpudding was among the highlights. Perhaps it will be part of next year’s party or we’ll bake up something new…or both. Stop by next time, or anytime in between. I’ll be over to celebrate the holiday with you. Happy Halloween.

      Nonsense, Sarah, we’re glad to have you. As you can tell, there was plenty of food left. I think Sehlat baked fresh bananut Mummitizers for you. Stop back any time!
