Happy Halloween {& our party}

I hope you all have a Happy Happy Halloween, 
filled with lots of candy & no carrots/raisins/toothbrushes :)

We had our annual Halloween party on Saturday.  
The weather started out iffy.  Raining and cloudy.  
By party time, it had cleared up and was perfect for our outdoor party.

I took WAY too many pictures so I apologize, in advance, for all of these!!

Using the chalkboard my dad made for the kids, 
I made a sign for 'broom parking' 
(to get everyone to head for the backyard)

My mom created this little scene - super cute!
*all the printables are from Shindig Parties TO GO.  
There were so many great goodies in the set I bought (for $8.00)!
I wasn't able to use all of them.

I dressed up some of the outside plants with the printables.

Love this banner!! 
(we are using it tonight for our Trick-or-Treat table in the driveway)

We had pumpkin bowling, donut bobbing, hay rides & pumpkin decorating for the kids.
October 2011
Between all the games & running around, the kids ate some of these yummy treats!

Mini ghost rice krispies (which look a little 'Spongebob-y')
Oreo cakesters dipped in sprinkles

Halloween Rainbow cake

Spider Eggs (Sixlets) - notice the tiny paper chain?  
It's a water bottle label and a napkin ring from the Shindig collection :)

Marshmallow Pops & more candy

Waxy Q-tips :)

and cupcakes 
(displayed on my 'dad-made' 3 tiered stand)

 Good use of the photo props (also included in the Shindig collection)

It seemed like all the kids had a good time.  
No crying, tears or fighting.  
Everyone left dirty and full, so I say it was a success!

I snapped this decorated pumpkin - hee hee.  
At least he knows how to spell!

Happy Halloween!!!!
