For the past few years Fattima has tried to throw a Halloween party. Each time things get in the way and it doesn’t happen. She makes a facebook post for the siblings and then takes it down. She has been haunted (just had to say it) by this fact and reminded every year by her brothers and sisters. But this year she was determined to make sure it actually worked out and we were the lucky invitees.
Saturday after doing a few jobs around the house and taking a walk, we popped over to Fattima and Ben’s where we planned to spend the night. Dinner was cooking in the kitchen and decorations were festive and spooky!
Dinner was served and was exceptional featuring a variation of smashed potatoes made by Ben. Fattima made an autumn salad that is one of my favorites and
Turkey meatballs in a fiery hot sauce alongside artichoke spinach dip.
After dinner we sat in the living room and watched movies, played games and shared each other’s company. A chocolate peanut butter fondue was prepared for those who were not too full from supper.
I turned in early as I am always waking up around 4:30 a.m. and the next morning true to form I was downstairs at 5:00 making coffee. Soon after Fattima made a delicious cauliflower hash and then it was time to head home! Everyone knows it is hard for mom to stay in one place but this little sleepover was a huge treat!
Thanks Fattima and Ben!
