I know, I know, I’m late. But, just like Angie, I can’t upload pics fast enough!
If you’ve been reading, you’ll know that we have been planning a birthday party for Beans on Halloween. It was the first Halloween Party ANY of our family members have ever thrown and it was a doozy! It wasn’t as I expected, but hey, those Halloween decorations could add up!
I wanted to decorate my parents’ house with one room all pumpkin-patchy like and another more dark and haunted, but, kids…I didn’t want to scare the kids too much NOR could we afford to go all out with decorations.
Anyway, decorated to the nines or not, it was a success! Exhausting, but successful nonetheless ;) We had BEAUTIFUL 70 degree weather during the day and the rain held off for the most part until night. We had kiddies/adults dressed as the White Ninja (Strom Shadow from GI Joe), Cats, Wondergirls, Groovy 60s girl, Simba, Pumpkins, Fairies, Batman, Pregnant Nun, Priest, Dead guy, Superwoman, Tinkerbell, Snow White, a Knight, Pocahantas/Native Americans, etc…I’m not going to post all their pics on Flickr b/c I didn’t ask their permission. Trust me though, it was awesome and fun to see almost everyone in costume.
The following are pictures from Halloween…aka Beans’ 4th Birthday Costume Party…aka Pumpkin Picking ;) Just like Angie said, better late than never :D (To see more participants for Wordful Wednesday, check out Angie’s blog).
Beans was Cinderella and would be a Diva w/a costume change later on.
Razz was Minnie Mouse.
pDaddy was a Clone Trooper while I was a Pirate, Wench or “Deck Hand Darling” (as the costume description said).
Here are the 3 of us – minus Razz because she decided she didn’t care too much about the party and wanted to nap for 3 hours instead!
Cake was made by my MUM especially for Beans. Cinderella and a Pirate theme all-in-one – talk about custom made.
Here’s a pic of Me & Little Me after her costume change ;) My eyes are closed, but it’s the only picture of the 2 of us in our matching attire. It was around 8pm already. Her party started at 1pm and she had NO nap.
We didn’t get pictures of the goodie bags, but we did them like Razz’ – brown paper lunch bags w/die-cuts on them. This time, instead of apples, we had die-cuts of pumpkins, ghosts and skulls.
