Whew..........The party is done and was a success! Planning for something for 3 months and then to have it be done in just a few hours is crazy. Two of my boys have birthdays in October. For those of you that don't know, I L.O.V.E Halloween......always have. I used to wish my birthday was in October. How lucky am I that "half" of my kids birthdays fell into this month, (I promise it wasn't planned that way). Anyhoo, my oldest turned 10 and my youngest turned 5.....milestones in my book and a GREAT reason to throw a big bash for. I started shopping, crafting, and browsing the many sites for ideas and what not. Every day there was something new that was either made or bought and hung up. It was almost like a game when the boys got home from school to find what Mom did that day. I could tell they were excited and couldn't wait for the big day! (Me either!!) It was great! Over forty family and friends came and most in costumes....tons of food and sweets, and lots of fun for all the kids.
