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... i.e.my 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!
