Halloween Fun

The Halloween characters at my house this year nibbled on mummy dogs and wormy mac n chz before heading out to trick or treat. Guests included a famous video game character, storybook beauties, a pair of sibling bears and one beautiful baby. The monster munch snack was a hit with everyone!
