trick or treat... and surprise!

it's still dark out.. and i'm preparing for what's about to be one of our busiest weekends yet! i've woken up with more of a sore throat and congestion (clearly i'm still not fully over this cold), but i've got my coffee, and determination to make this a very memorable weekend :)

my little man has asked for a hallowe'en party. and he's just so dang cute, i said yes :) so we're having it this weekend. right after soccer. he wanted to invite only boys. "of course sweetie, it's your party.. just tell me who you want to invite!" so the evites went out, including the grandparents (just for fun as they might like to see owen's invitation)  and i realize just how loud it is going to be in my house. lol. especially since the forecast is rain, rain, and more rain. ha!

but how cute! the kids will all come up in their costumes (i can't even begin to tell you how excited owen is for this..to finally don his stormtrooper outfit), and we'll have make your own pizzas, and hallowe'en bingo. i'm even attempting some crazy bat cupcake that owen has had his heart set on for weeks now. ... and of course, we've got the goodie bags to get ready too :)

but here's the big surprise... my mil called yesterday saying they'd love to come and surprise owen for his hallowe'en party... (since every time he's talked on the phone to them he's all like ..."it's too bad you can't come to my party") soooo guess who's coming just before owen's soccer game on saturday? i think he'll be pretty stoked :) and really, what a nice surprise!  and kind of a nice surprise for us parents, as we can plan a last minute date! hurrah! and since it's my birthday on sunday, well that just worked out nicely ;)

  1. We went to a birthday party last night and another one tomorrow (which I have to knit up a quick gift for).
    Noelle still has her cough so she's going about her daily routine very slowly and begrudgingly. Hopefully she'll mend up before tomorrow.
    Funny about the "only boys"...Noelle's best friend is a boy but recently she only wants to play with girls. Too bad the boys still want to play with her...creates a little drama on the playground. bahaha.
    Your weekend sounds packed, but in a good way! Have so much fun!

  2. We are also having a Halloween party on saturday (but no kids allowed, haha!) My birthday was this week and we usually do a costume party since it's the season and all...
    I have a drawer full of Halloween Martha Stewart stuff I got from Michaels years ago for 75% off. One of these years I am actually going to have a kids Halloween party and use it!! I've always wanted to have a kids costume party, but once October comes around again, I just feel too tired to take it on. Maybe next year.
