Murder and Mayhem Part II

Yesterday I shared part I of our NYE murder mystery party re-cap and now I'm back for part II. When I left off yesterday, we had experienced 2 murders at our party and a little greediness from our guests (stealing money off 'dead' bodies).

With 2 murders so far, we continued asking questions and trying to figure out information to solve the crimes.



And then, another murder!


And *gasp!* another one!


So many crimes to solve!





We wrapped things up eventually and were shocked when we figured out who committed each murder and all the things that were going on right under our noses that we didn't know about. Everyone had secrets and people were blackmailing each other like crazy!

We gave out awards for best costume, best performer, guest with the most money and for each guest who solved the main murder.

After we finished the game, we had to take some group pictures (some people had already left, but we got some with the people who were still there).



Then we headed down to the end of the street to shoot off roman candles that a friend brought to the party.




After we finished with the fireworks, we walked back to the house and on the way we noticed my neighbor's yard was on fire. Yes, you read that right - on fire. That had been lighting some small fireworks in their driveway and one went off into the grass.


Of course I had to get a picture with the fire and my two friends who were trying to stomp it out since my neighbors didn't have a water hose.


And that was how we welcomed 2012 - with mystery, roman candles and fire. Happy New Year to all of you!

How fun is that Murder Mystery? That is so cool. The fire part is a little crazy. The first thing I would do if I were your neighbors is 1) Go buy a hose and 2) water that grass.
