Yes, Virginia, there is a Sunday.

We made it! The party is over and done with! Everything is washed and put away, all the decorations that we used for the party are put away and we are still standing. The rain held off until after we got everything back from the theatre, so I was happy about that as well.

We had about twenty five people show up. There was enough food and drink - lots of drink - for everyone and people seemed to really enjoy the trivia contest and then the movie. It was fun to see it on the big screen and it was super creepy in a darkened theater. The best part was that afterwards, people helped us pack everything up and we came home with very few leftovers.
