Party day! How cool is my son that he wanted a Halloween party? I loved it! Kerry let me borrow some cool serving stuff to add to my own, so everything looked so cute. I even spent all Thursday baking 4 dozen sugar cookies and 3 dozen cupcakes, homemade frosting, PB&J sandwiches cute into Halloween shapes, stuffing 2o goodie bags, finding orange and black snacks. . . and then for all the work I put into it, it was stinking HOT! It's the end of October for heavens sake. Why is it still 92 degrees outside? I felt so bad for all the kids who had furry Halloween costumes because they could only wear them for a few minutes. Nate even ditched his after an hour.
We played Pin-the-Nose-on-the-Pumpkin, decorate sugar cookies, potato sack races, marshmallow toss, and just general running around. I didn't get as many pictures as I wanted to because I was playing with the kids most of the time, but here are a few I snapped.
Potato Sack races
Even the moms wanted to get in on the action
Most of the kids. We're missing a few who wanted to play instead of be in the picture. As you can see, most of them had ditched their costumes by this point.
Now I'm off to clean up the mess of tissue paper and boxes across my floor and hose the candy corn, sprinkles and chocolate cupcakes off the back patio.
