Because We Didn't Already Have a Million Other Things to Do This Time of Year...

At the very last minute (and I mean like a day or two before!), Jason suggested that we throw a little Halloween shin-dig for Brevin and Spencer and a few of their friends during the Fall Break. We weren't going anywhere, so it gave our boys something to look forward to.
As it turned out, I had nearly everything necessary to pull off a little party and it really wasn't hard to plan for a small group of children. We only headed to the store for a piñata and candy. Jason grabbed two dozen doughnuts from Krispy Kremes and we were set!

The party was so much fun, and we've decided to make it an annual thing--or at least we'll plan on it when we don't do anything else for Fall Break.

 Everyone got to make a personalized personal pizza.

We played Ghost Bingo until everyone won a prize.

The cotton ball game was highly entertaining to watch.

It's just not Halloween without Pass the Rat.

Everyone lined up to get a shot at the piñata.

This was the moment the piñata met its demise. It was broken from
the rope and came crashing to the ground. The impact severely
compromised the structural stability of the poor piñata, so once
Jason got it back on the rope, the next hit sent candy splattering everywhere.

This looks like so much fun! I love how it was so festive yet simple. I wanted to have a little Halloween party too, but somehow I made excuses & didn't execute it. You're such a great mom! I'm going to have to Google that cotton ball game to find out what it's all about, I'm so curious!
