Im 1983 I entered a contest conducted by Kahn's. The prize was fixins' for a Halloween party.
I had forgotten all about it when one day the mailman stopped at my house and delivered a package. When I saw the return address was Kahn's, a smile came to my face. I never expected to win and this was a surprise.
What I won, to the best of my memory, were free coupons for a bunch of Kahn's hotdogs, a Halloween tablecloth, Halloween cups and plates, streamers and a Halloween 'pin the nose on the pumpkin' game. There may have been coupons for other things as well, but my memory leaves me at the moment.
We had a party that was attended by my sons' grandparents, my sister and her daughter (and a friend of her daughter's), and Charley's sister and her 2 boys.
We had a ball! I made clown costumes for my boys. We also had in attendance a vampire, a dog, a gypsy and maybe a dancer (I can't remember for sure what Terri Ann's friend came dressed as), but she looks like she could have been a dancer.
Some people don't get into Halloween, and that's all right. But as you can tell by the faces on these kids they had a great time dressing up and playing games, and I don't see anything wrong with that. I had a smile on my face, too.
For this game, they split into two teams and saw who could fill the little glasses up with Reese's Pieces first. They had to run across the room with their little plastic spoons filled with the candy and empty them into the glass. Below are Daniel (the dog) and my oldest son Charley (the clown) seeing how fast they can fill up the containers.
My youngest son (Andrew) had fun with the bowl of Reese's Pieces. He must have been the official stirrer-upper. This is my son who is the wood worker of our family. I've posted here on his craftsmanship before.
I apologize for the quality of the pictures. My scanner wasn't working, so I took pictures of my pictures, and they didn't turn out very good.
Hope you enjoyed my Blast From the Past Halloween post.
