Witches Night Out

For the last few years, I have been going to a Halloween get-together called Witches Night Out. It was started by my friend and her mother and sisters as something fun for themselves and their friends to do around Halloween. So around Halloween, they host a Witches Night Out. Everyone dresses up like witches, we meet at the designated spot and usually have a scavenger hunt of some sort and then go have dinner together. Everyone brings a gift to exchange (less than $5.00) and we play one of those "left" "right" games to exchange the presents. It is so much fun!

This year we all got on the "Witches Bus" and traveled to a grocery store in Rigby. (Last year we me in the broom aisle in Walmart!) The witches bus was an actual school bus, decorated in Halloween fashion, and driven by an actual school bus driver. It was great! At the store we had a scavenger hunt and then walked around cackling at the customers. After we had made a nuisance of ourselves, we got back on the bus and went to Krupp Scout Hollow. We had to walk on a road, through the woods, in the dark to the building that had our potluck dinner. It was kinda spooky but very fitting. We played games and exchanged our presents and had a great time!

Getting ready to go!

I'm really glad I had the cloak. It was cold outside! The bus was a little chilly too!

Its fun to see people stare, especially the little kids. One year 2 little girls came up to us and asked, "Are you real witches?" We just looked at each other and cackled!

Hannah really wanted to come with. She kept telling me I was a pretty princess!

Love these socks!

Witch in training!
