This year I was in charge of throwing the 3rd Annual PGFD Halloween Party. Normally, myself and some of the other wives would un-decorate our homes to help decorate the department party. This was less than ideal. So! I approached the Chief a few months ago and offered to throw the party in style. Little did I know at the time that the month of October would be crazy-busy and I would be stressed to the max. I wanted the party to be festive and fun and look great and I wanted everyone to have a great time. Miraculously - I pulled it off!
We held it in the bay at the station (the huge garage area where they park all the trucks) and I think we'll have it there from now on. We borrowed some lights from the City...don't they look great?
Water bottles with custom labels
Costume Prize table! A glorious gift for Best, Funniest, Scariest and Least Effort.
Ok. Not my finest hour. We decided on this like 3 hours before the party.
Not. One. Word.
The Chief and his sassy wife. Doesn't he make a great Edward? Red eyes and all! He was covered in sparkles...
Jake and Cecily - Woody and Jesse
The Girls! Melanie, Cecily, Me and my legs, Mindi and AnnaLee
There was a chili cook off which the most delicious contest! We took loads of pictures and ate and laughed...it was so fun. Afterwards we had our First Annual Pumpkin Drop. Such a blast! Each shift gets their own pumpkin and someone gets on the top of the truck ladder and drops their pumpkin from 100 ft up. We tied a balloon to the target pumpkin - let the games begin!
B shift came soooo close!
So, so very high.
We wrapped up the evening with the prizes and I even got a round of applause - aww. It was so much fun and I hope they let me do it again next year. I should probably wear pants. Happy Halloween!
