A few weeks ago I got inspired by Kelle Hampton's blog, Enjoying the Small Things. If you haven't visited her blog before, it is amazing...great family and great photos! I feel like I know her, but I so don't. Just wish I did:)
Anyway, she got my butt in gear to plan an Pumpkin Party....and to throw it together at the last minute. I have never been really big on Halloween. Except for maybe in college, but who doesn't like the holiday where you dress up as a slutty something or other and drink lots of beer. Those days are over, and now it is all about spiderman and ladybugs...
I digress. We had a pumpkin party with lots of candy, paint and buried treasure. Bradley helped me with pretty much all of the planning, except hiding the buried treasure. We made cupcakes together....
And chocolate mummies for snacks...
And then invited friends, old and new
After painting pumpkins and decorating them with glitter, we started on our search for buried treasure. First I asked the kids what a treasure hunt was, and they weren't real sure...
But they quickly caught on and we started searching the house. We went to the office
Then onto the front porch. Everyone was looking in the wrong area, except Davis. He found the clue right away and was trying to get everyone's attention!
Back inside to the swing
Then off to the basement, which didn't get documented. But, all in all it was an awesome success. I am excited for what next year will bring. Halloween with Bradley around has definitely become a favorite holiday in my heart!
Of course Ellie was a dream, and just hung out while the big kids searched for treasure!
This weekend was packed full of fun. But most of Sunday was spent with my mom and I cranking out all of the super hero capes. Almost there! I only have a few girls capes to finish. Tonight I went to my first knitting class and FELL IN LOVE!! I am working on a plum knit hat for Ellie. SO excited!!!
More fun stuff coming soon, just need to take pictures of all of these projects!
