A few weeks ago, we decided that we would have Gia’s soccer team over for a little Halloween party. Super low key. Costumes, so treats and time together. As so many times, things got away from me and I quickly realized that I was staring down the preverbial party gun and had done absolutely no prep. So, I do what I always do and run to the internet to fix it. And fast. Black cardboard, string, the Dollar Tree and some fresh flowers. Viola! Instant decor.
Since we had six little girls and a boy to follow them around we settled on some easy activities. Drawing on mini pumpkins, creating jack-o-lanterns, bobbing for apples, and playing soccer. Playing soccer and bobbing for apples won big time.
Sweet little “Belle” is such a tenacious soul. She must have tried fifteen times before getting the apple. And she was (as she should be) so proud of herself! The funny thing about bobbing for apples? It involves a lot of hair holding an guttural sounds. Things that are often found after college Halloween parties. Lots of entertainment for the adults.
All in all, it was a huge success. And we look forward to doing it again soon. We just love to have people over to celebrate. Despite the below picture, everyone was happy the entire day and had a blast. I just couldn’t get them to all look at the same time. Happy Halloween!
