I’ve never been a huge fan of Halloween since I’m not into dressing up. I’m just not creative enough. But this year, Big, decided that he wanted to host a Halloween party. He’s all about parties and having our family over. We’re not a big family by any means, but he just loves getting us all together. So when he mentioned his Halloween Party idea, I went with it. Wow. I am so amazed by how much thought and time he invested in his little venture. He requested that there be a piñata, a dance party and even helped out with the menu planning. Did I mention that he turns 5 at the end of this month? He truly is an amazing boy.
The party was super awesome. Vince decorated the house with spider webs and all of the traditional Halloween decorations. Our table was a sea of black and orange. The food consisted of mummy chicken fingers in hot dog buns so as to resemble coffins, spider web pizzas, and an orange cake with spider web icing. The evening was topped off by heading out to trick or treat. And here I was once again amazed by my boys – Big totally became ‘big brother’ and looked after Small. Introducing him to all the neighbours and ensuring that Small got his fair share of candy – it was a ‘no man left behind’ type of mentality! it was awesome.
Ah well – Halloween 2010 down, now on to planning a Transformers party for Big’s 5th Birthday – maybe my little party planner extraordinaire will give me some tips?!
