Halloween Pumpkin Carving Party!

We had another fantastic Hittle Halloween Pumpkin Carving Party this year! It has become an annual tradition for us, and we all have so much fun. After a fairly wet and cold October, it was actually a beautiful day for the party. We were happy that we had 23 friends and family join us, because the swine flu was raging and another 12 friends had to cancel due to H1N1. We had 9 kids and 14 adults, 1 dog and 1 bird!

Our food theme this year was pizza - yum! I made homemade dough all week in preparation for our homemade pizzas and Brian did the pizza assembling. We thought it turned out well!

And we can't forget the costumes. The kiddos wore costumes and they were all so adorable! Here are a few pictures (I couldn't pick just one!) of our little Larky-Lu dressed up as a darling unicorn/pegasus. Isn't she so cute?!

Here are some pictures I took during the party of all of the fun everyone was having. We had a kiddy table that matched the adult table and the kids liked it! We did all the usual activities... games and toys, bobbing for apples, eating, and drawing at Larkin's new art table.

Then came time for the pumpkin carving! Here's everyone hard at work and then the finished products. Pretty impressive, eh?!

And, finally, our awesome group shot of all of the kiddos in their costumes. This is one for the memory book.

It was an awesome party and we can't wait again until next year! Thanks to all of our good friends and family that came to celebrate with us - we love spending time with all of you.
