A Halloween Birthday Party

My DIL Jamie loves Halloween and loves throwing parties for Aislyn and Alyse.  What a great idea to have a costume party for their combined birthday party.  I think all kids like to have excuses to wear their costumes more than once.

I'm sure there were some great pictures taken that day (not necessarily by me) but I got a few decent ones to share.  What self-respecting grandma attends a birthday party without a camera?  And this party was special in that it's the first of their parties that I was actually able to attend!

The festivities started with ghost cookies, jack-o-lantern rice krispy treats, and other assorted goodies.

 Jamie had to miss the part of the party where the Mom's visited around the table.  But they seemed to have a nice time.

The birthday girls (aka Bat Girl and Spider Girl) got to open lots of presents.

Mom and Dad finally had to cut open the pinata!

My costume for the day was a Biker Babe.  I even got an airbrushed tattoo for the occasion.

And a good time was had by all . . .

Looks like Bella was more pooped than anybody else!

What a wonderful time it looks like you all had! Such fun to have a combined birthday/costume party! I know what you mean about kids wanting another excuse to wear their costume. His bowling league is allowing the kids to dress up this year, and we are having a Halloween party on Friday night before Halloween. Our town also has the kids trick or treat on Saturday as well as Sunday when Halloween falls on a Sunday. There will be a good 3-4 times to wear it this year.

Glad you posted today! It's been awhile. :)

Hi Sherri, nice to see you again after a 2 month absence! Surely you must be doing more than attending kids parties - lol!
Is your studio completed yet? I'd love to see where it's up to now since the first photos you posted.
Ken just poked his head around the door to inform me that one of our Zebra finches has just hatched three of the five eggs in her nest. That makes it about 25 finches in that aviary now...and we sold a dozen just a few weeks ago! There are four nests with eggs in, so I guess we'll be selling a few more by Christmas.
