Halloween!

Halloween Tree

Well it is over… Halloween that is.  The kids are coming down from the sugar and party high which makes for some challenging moments and there were times yesterday I was convinced they were trying out a few new little monster costumes. 

 The party was a huge success.  We ended up having  all but 3 families show up but a few “last-minute invites” took their place, so I had a total of about 20 kids and 40-ish adults here.  It was a little overwhelming at times trying to keep cold beverages in everyone’s hands (it was 80 degrees and I was the requested margarita maker – I can make  a mean margarita!) while trying to catch up with friends and remembering to change my youngest diaper.    The best feedback was my oldest telling me that she can’t wait until next year, so we can do it again!

Trick or Treating was my favorite thing we did.  My kids really have the hang of it this year and marched, sometimes bravely, to doors and melted everyone’s heart out of more candy than they should have been given with “please”, “thank you” and “Happy Halloween”.  That made this mommy very happy!

I am super sorry that I don’t have more detailed pictures of my projects and a ton of them are missing.  It was just a bit crazy to get it all documented.  I did have a kids craft table where they got to decorate little fash lights that came with batteries I picked up at Home Depot to take with them for Halloween night. That was a big hit with both kids and parents. 

Thanks for coming and sharing a piece of “Life’s is a Party” pie with me!
