Greg and I hosted our 10th annual Halloween party this year. We started doing this just after college before we were even married. We've been holding a Connect 4 tournament each year, with prizes awarded for top three winners. Last year we encouraged costume-wearing, and we've given out prizes to the top two "best" costumes voted on by all the guests. We have typically had around 30 people in our tiny house each year, but this year we had only half that. Many regular-attenders had other engagements and weren't able to make it. We missed them all, but the up side was that it increased all of our chances of winning the Connect 4 Tourney or costume contest. Ultimately, Bill (a rookie), Tara, and Todd took 3rd, 2nd and 1st places in Connect 4, winning "The Office" paraphernalia, fancy treats, and a Chipotle giftcard. Greg and I, The Lady's Man and Dora the Explorer, tied for 1st in the costume contest (is it fair for the hosts to win??), only barely beating out little Brayden, the cowboy son of Jeremiah and Kelly. Brayden couldn't stay up late enough to claim his prize, so we'll be sending his DQ giftcard in the mail. Since it was a more intimate group than usual, we didn't have enough people interested in staying around for the scary movie, which is due back on Monday. That means that Greg and I get to watch it alone today. Lucky me.
