What I love most about this Video is me "directing"....lol! I don't know why, but it makes me laugh! I love the way they all are so 'into' the Halloween Mode.....Seemah and Bridget are really having fun with it....! Bridget is actually kind of scary, she's so good! I also love Seemah's surprise as Bridget comes at her.....Very very funny! As I said, I LOVE these women and the fact that each of them gave themselves over to this fun day 110%!!!!Seemah was so enjoying what she saw on her phone. I love that Morris Broderson Watercolor right next to Seemah---kind of appropriate for Halloween, isn't it? One more picture below as a tease for Part 3......... Well, these guys are so cute! I have to show you just one more picture. The picture above is before 'the drinks', and below, it's after one too many.......lol......Especially Mr. Pumpkin....!
What a fantastic "boo" lunch, lol!! you ladies look great, loved seeing your pictures. I was in Lisbon over Halloween and all I saw were...Xmas decorations!! they don't celebrate Halloween, same in Spain, but at least I haven't seen Santa around here yet...
Thanks for inviting us to peek in. BTW, the only way I get my boys to eat Chinese food is make a peanut sauce and caramelize the chicken with it. Good stuff.
you sure throw one heck of a halloween lunch, naomi! the photos are testament to what a boo-licious time everyone had. love your gift bags! =)
Oh, I LOVE the video!!! You are the PERFECT director, my friend! You can tell you've been in the business a while.
Bridget...wasn't she the one who didn't go all out with her costume because she had somewhere else to go afterwards? Well, let me tell you, she worked those gloves like no one else could work those gloves!! lol She went into full character and I loved it!!
I enjoyed all the little goodies in those gift bags, too (it's one of my favorite parts of your lunches...seeing what's in those bags!).
Thanks for sharing a fun and ooh, so scary BOO lunch with us, and have a great weekend, amiga!!
Such a fun group, Naomi! No wonder you like them to come and visit you!
By the way, where was Sweetie while all this was taking place?
Looks like a luncheon filled with laughter -- the best kind!
Nice pictures ! It looks like fun was had by all ! I especially love the clown hair !
The Halloween Lunch sounds so funny, Naomi! Great photos and I love the video too. Thanks for sharing!
Have a nice weekend my dear.
You gals are hysterical! It was so funny watching all the cell phones and videoing going on at once. It struck me as almost like witches' wands the way everyone was pointing them and moving them around. They are magic sticks if you think about it.
LOL, I wish I could figure out how to make my cheap cell ph take pics...a $500 Nikon that I am JUST figuring out and the cell phone is awful. You kids are TOO much! PS--those foods are some of my favorites, used to eat the all every week, deli across street!
You have SO much fun with your friends. I'm grateful that you share this with us!
I love your lunch stories.... and LOVE this Halloween one. Great costumes! You know what song came to mind reading this.... Its not Halloweeeeeenie. The Beatles.... "A Little Help from my Friends...." You have a bunch of beautiful people in your life and when we're lucky to have that, as I am too, we are very rich indeed....
mmmmmm, I get by with a little help from my friends..... xx
It is always so refreshing to visit I can almost feel the excitement and how devoted you and your friends are to each other. It's always a joy to see the smiles and antics of this exuberant group of people which I think are just like my friends.
Wish I knew how to post pictures (still haven't mastered it) so I could share my friends as we are just as wonderful to each other as I see yours are.
Many blessings and many more luncheons and parties...

Oh Naomi! How much fun was this! LOL You all look great. I chose not to dress the boys up for the holiday this year. I didn't have the heart. But I dressed up at school and then again Halloween evening. So unlike me on both counts for the holiday! Hard to believe Thanksgiving is around the corner!
Those are beautifully made and thanks for sharing. Are those pumpkins crocheted or knitted do you know?? I would love to try them sometime if they are crocheted..
What a pleasure to enjoy this gathering, even only via internet.
You know how to do an unforgettable event.
btw. Nice to hear your voice once more
you are just too funny Naomi! lol.. I am so glad you take so many photo's (and videos ! lol) you do realize that you have made "your friends.. our friends"?! we see them so often now it's almost like we all know everyone! just love your luncheons more than I can say..
I loved it Naomi!! You did a great directing job!! Those appetizers sound quite tasty to me!
I love Betty's clown hair/hat/outfit, and especially with the sun shining on her.
I saw Sweetie's little condo/play area in one of the pictures!
Fun times with special friends!! Looking forward to the next part!!!
Chicken with peanut sauce is reason enough to party! You are GREAT hostess.
That is a really great idea, a Boo lunch with all those goodies and treats. Great pictures too. Thanks for sharing!
You are all so blessed to have such strong friendships that have lasted so many years. It's good that you nurture it as you do.
Hey Naomi, we are having fun watching the video. Darren is beside me and he is so impressed with Seemah's performance heheheheh...all are lovely sports well done ladies :D
I'm finally catching up on all the fun you are having. You girls really know how to enjoy life! I love these posts Naomi
This has to be the lunch of the year, looks like you all are having fun, your pictures are great. The way you tell it, it is like we were right there. Have a nice Sunday.
Isn't technology amazing!?
I love the Halloween decorations ... the before and the after :)
there is so much to love in this post and the one below
it is going to sound silly but the goodie bags are so wonderful!!
I love the fur lined tops, so classy
and all the costumes!!!!!!!!!!!!
you look lovely in blue my dear dear brilliant friend
The video is FUN, and your laugh in the background sounds so genuine.
It is proof positive that you had a marvelous time. It was surely a Halloween party to remember! I'm still kind of scared of Seemah. YIKES!
Great action shots. They're almost like a little flip card movie.
Yes cellphones prevail everywhere! Mmmm I love love love peanut sauce! Seemah is an awesome witch! I was a witch every single year for Halloween when I was a little girl. In fact, I wanted to be a witch when I grew up until I found out that you couldn't actually "do" that!
