So, I had a dream that my kids were going to have THE best birthday party EVER, well... It was the BIGGEST headache EVER and... I guess it was also the best birthday/Halloween party they've had (I combined their bdays even though they are 4 months apart!).
My vision was for them to have a haunted house that the kids had to walk through the get to my backyard. I borrowed tons of Halloween decorations and different scary items from different friends and had a small but very cool haunted house on the side of the backyard.
Everything was ready...
costume for everyone... check!
Tons of candy and food... Check, Check!
RAIN? Wait... NOOOO!
Yes, it was a cold and rainy evening, all the girls were freezing and the boys too. No other way but to tell everyone to go inside. Yes, over 50 people inside my little kitchen and family room. BUT that didn't stop us from having a blast. We played a few games and then.... the rain stopped and everyone back outside! Kids liked the haunted house and some girls were petrified... WHAT? I know.... crazy girls! I built the darn thing so it can't be that scary! lol! Anyways... We played more games, danced and sang the bday song twice! I am sure my neighbors wanted to hurt me but I did give them a heads up! So, at about 10:45 our last friend left and we were beat and left with the BIGGEST mess EVER! But I am glad my kids had fun and their friends did too. I will post more pictures soon!
IF I EVER HAVE ANOTHER DREAM.... PLEASE STOP ME BEFORE I GET CARRIED AWAY!
