Yesterday my baby turned six... and the thing that is even weirder to me is that we are coming up on the anniversary of her being home with us for four years. That is just crazy to me... but here we are.
We had our annual halloween birthday bash... much more low key this year. So fun.
The grub. Kept it easy this year with chili, pizza and homemade mac-n-cheese... oh, and a few salts and sweets. And drinks.
Our costumes... literally thrown together in a day... err, less. Looks involved... but it wasn't.
This picture of my kids cracks.me.up... it is so indicative of their personalities. Payton looking to Mason to copy whatever it is that he is doing... and Nika off to the side, picking at her fingers, being shy when the attention is on her. Sigh.
Our guests... yes, costumes are mandatory... and oh, so fun.
A halloween party ain't no halloween party without the donut game. We do this every year... it never gets old.
Pass the apple... this was quite the cluster... and quite funny, actually.
Happy birthday, baby girl.
Instead of getting an assortment of party favors for the kids to pick from this year... which usually get chucked around my house courtesy of all the crazy boys... I just got these glow masks from the dollar bins at Target. They were pretty cool... definitely a hit with the kids. And they made their eyes look all eery... almost like those fake halloween contacts that they sell.
I think our halloween parties may be one of my favorite things each year... a tradition to keep, that is for sure.
