This is Halloween, Halloween !

It's party time!  The girls had an amazing time partying for Halloween!!
The spooky table was set up with goolish treats!  

Creepy eyeballs
Oreo balls with gummy lifesavers and chocolate chips

I loves making these Frankenstein Rice Krispy treats.  I used mini rolos for the ears :)   


Precious pumpkin goody bags! 

Too many sweets make sick bellies so se started out with spider pizza ( mozzarella string cheese pulled apart made a perfect web) and "fruit candy corn"
(Pineapple, mandarin oranges, and whip cream)

Witch hat ring toss!!!

Eyeball bounce- bounce the eyeballs into the cups 

Bobbing for Apples

Pin the spider on the web

Jack o' lantern bean bag toss

American Girl

My oldest wanted an American Girl party.  

Look at all the dolls!!!

The kids table 
There were soooooo many of them :) 

The doll table

The girls lived that their doll had a seat too 

Turquoise and red were our main colors.  We had ham sandwiches cut into the shape of a star, chips, and Autumn's favorite fruits. We also had Starburst (we used them as markers during BINGO later)

I was so proud of the cake.  It turned out just like I pictured it! 

I painted one side of the frame red and the other turquoise.   The girls were able to choose which side they wanted. 

Find your Inner Star
We went on a scavenger hint in the back yard.   Each girl had to find one star in each color.   The stars all represented a character trait. 

Next we used fabric pens to design our very own doll tshirt.  

B-I-N-G-O!   American Girl Bingo

Before everyone left, Autumn had her picture made with each one of her guest 

Mommy wanted a picture too! 

Pirate Party

Jake and the Neverland Pirates is my youngest daughter's newest obsession!  She loves Izzy so she wanted an Izzy party.  

When they came in they picked up pirate gear.  There were eye patches, hooks, swords, red "Jake" headbands for the boys, and pink "Izzy" head wraps for the girls. 
"X" Marks the spot

We had lots of pirate games to play. Unfortunately, March has very unpredictable weather.  It was cold so the party was moved inside :(. 

Ring Captain Hook's hooks 

Walk the Plank!

Pin the mustache on Captain Hook 

Dig for Treasure

Making Pixie Dust ~ Faith (iridescent   glitter) Hope (silver glitter) and Trust  (gold glitter) were all out in our pouch (just like Izzy)
