The day before I host a party is usually filled with much chaos - lots to do, lots to do. Cody is home today (YAY!) so we ran a bunch of errands this afternoon. Before we left, we went over to chat with our neighbor, George. George is the best neighbor ever - he's a farmer and his garden is right across the street from us. We get spoiled every season with corn, watermelon, squash and the like. My own little Farmer's Market! Today he gave us a bunch of turnips and I'm going to cook them with dinner tonight. I must be honest, I don't think I have ever eaten a turnip before. I know, George was pretty shocked, too. He pulled one out of the ground, peeled it with his pocket knife and gave all of us a slice. It was so yummy! I am now a fan. Before we left he gave us a few squash, as well. Cache loves his, he'll probably be carrying it around the rest of the day.
Cody and I are getting a lot of things done today for the party tomorrow - I'm so excited! The weather has been really warm which has been great. It's usually freezing cold and sometimes snows on the night of our Halloween party, so here's hoping that it's a little toastier this year! I will be taking lots of pictures tomorrow of party central. The party is a sort of a carnival theme...hopefully I can pull that off.
So! In light of the fact that I am in party mode, I thought I would post some of my favorite Halloween party tunes!
"Thriller" - This song is a classic. That Michael Jackson was quite a genius before he went mad.
"Somebody's Watching Me" by Rockwell
"RamaLama (Bang Bang)" by Roison Murphy
"Help Me" by Timo Maas - this song sounds so groovy, a definite spooky tune!
"House of Fun" by Madness - going along with the carnival theme
Now I'm off to get party things going...wish me luck!
