Brayden's Halloween Bash!

Brayden James had such a SPOOK-tacular Halloween Bash! We enjoyed it indeed. This little canvas to the right is one I painted (in just the nick of time...I finished it up an hour before the party) it is something I thought of several weeks ago. I'm sure you can tell the little floating ghosts are Brayden's feet. Sweet huh? Although I was stressed for more time yesterday, I sure did like making things and getting things together for Brayden's frightful festivities. I started a few weeks ago. I made a whimisical ghost scene for the dining room. I spray painted ghrouds and fall leaves and just created a little scene. I also made simple things like Halloween signs for the food and bought some cutesy decor to decorate the mantel and the rest of the house. I like doing things for my kids and other children. Maybe that's why I am a kindergarten teacher...Hmmm something to ponder. All the running around before the party picking up some last minute things was not as fun. But, hey...anything for my little guy. The grand time at the party was well worth the not so fun time right before. The kids made their own personalized pumpkin and played, played, and played. They ate a little too! How fun to see little ones interact, share, and express themselves. I LOVE watching them!

I am happy to say my mom was able to attend as well as Scott's mom. Even Aunt Pia was there to join the fun. What a Happy Halloween Time!!

These are the pumpkins for Brayden's Friends

My whimsical ghost scene.
It's a lot cuter when the candles are lit
and I think next year I will add a
couple of taller ones in the back.
