The Party

So, we had our party, the kids had a blast and the house is almost back to normal!

And the same thing happened as every year. I managed to take some really hurried photos (read too dark and often blurry) and then I got way too involved in being a hostess and no more photos were taken!

So when my husband picked up the camera while I was coordinating the gift opening frenzy amongst all the 5-6 year olds and started taking photos, I was going “Hurray!!” on the inside.

However, when I looked at the photos later, I saw that there were photos of all the gifts, but none of the kids!Considering the flying paper, frenzied movement and exclamations of what it was and the following Uhhhs and Ahhhs of the little guests, that took talent!

So, here are some of the photos we do have, however little those may be and however incomplete!

We all had a great time and that is the most important thing!


{Birthday boy in anticipation!}


{Swamp Juice}


{Fruit Salad, Veggies in dip with optional Chipotle Dip and Mini Caramel Apple Bites}


{Black Tortilla chips with Salsa or Queso Dip, Cheesy “Eyeballs” and the necessary utensils.}


{The Spider and Owl cupcakes we made with Max’s Batty watching over it all! It’s hard to tell on this picture, but I light under the box too and once it got a little darker, the light effects really came into their own! I also have the entire window covered in this spider webby dark cloth, which was also covered in the white spider webs and green and black spiders!}


{The other side of the table, minus the worms, pizza and wings that were served later!}


{The easiest decoration ever and also one of the kid’s favorites! This was up on the counter of our breakfast bar and every once in a while you would see a little one walk by, UNDER the counter and just a little hand would come up, reaching for a candy corn or three!}


{Our decorated mini pumpkins!}


{A little glimpse of the birthday princess! Complete with stain and polly pockets - what more can you ask!}
