A Peek-a of Our Halloween Fika

What, you might ask, is a Fika? (pronunciation: fee-kah) It's simply a time to get together to share coffee and a snack - usually a sweet one - in the tradition of the Swedish who know how to take a break!
When Halloween fell on a Saturday this year, we decided to go all out and host a fika in our city nest. The guest list included our kids, of course, and those we've been wanting to come over for visit...those who've recently graduated from NPU especially. Costumes were optional, but a bin of vintage thrift store clothing was provided to "inspire" a festive fashion...in fact the outfits Wes and I wore were from thrift stores, too. (Thanks to Earleen for the dress and Barb J. for the accessories!)
Take a look at some of the fashionistas/ fashionistos:
Our Lovebirds arrived in Western Wear.
Check out Rod Blagojevich on the left!
And here's the WHO YOU GONNA CALL? guy.
Check out the "Jersey Boys." (Get it? Jerseys.)
Costumes. Cider. Coffee. Cookies. Muffins. Chocolate. Candy. Two games. Lotsa laughs.

Halloween always is soooo much fun! I do miss the dressing up part but once the kiddos are older we could do it again. Andrew and I already have some ideas for costumes...
My favorite from your blog is the Ghostbuster guy.. love his costume.
