To celebrate Halloween, we had a dinner for Nightmare Before Christmas!  This is Halloween! Olivia was ok with the movie... there were parts she wasn't too sure of!

For dinner we had Sally's sausage stuffing, "What's This?" mashed potatoes, Oogie Boogie's rolls, The Bone Daddy Cocktail, and The Pumpkin King Bars.
