Circus business is hard work... 3 tired boys!
This year Wes and I hosted our 2nd annual Halloween party.  We incorporate a theme into our party ...  Last year we were a family of pirates and Perry was our parrot!  This year we went with the Circus theme and we embraced every aspect.  We turned our garage into a big top, popped popcorn, face painted, enjoyed duck pond games, ring toss games, side walk chalk, bubbles,  potato sack racing, pumpkin decorating/chunkin', and the crowd favorite -ELEPHANT JUMPY.  I enjoy throwing parties and this year was no exception.  I wanted every detail CIRU-LICIOUS!  I think I was able to do just that and everyone had a ball!  Our guests list included:  buzz light year, woody, a cow, dinosaur, lion, owl, Elmo, Cat and the Hat, Rapunzel, an angel, a cat, a ninja turtle, a sock monkey, bumble bee, a spider, and safari family.  (I think that was everyone)  Of course there were many duds this year that chose not to join in the costume fun... next door neighbor.  I will not call any names... but YOU know who you are!  I will give them 1 more chance with an invite next year to redeem themselves.  Overall it was a wonderful day with incredible weather.  We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day to over EAT, chunk pumpkins, visit with friends, and soak up these precious memories!  I want my boys to look back at pictures and remember what an awesome time we had each year.  I want them to see the lengths their parents went to look like total "idiots" to make them smile.  These are the times of our lives... I just wish they would slow down!
