Our Annual Pumpkin Party!

Every fall we host some sort of fall party for the boys! Sometimes it includes costumes, sometimes trick or treating...but always pumpkins...pumpkin decorating, pumpkin games and pumpkin treats!

This year was no exception! We served pumpkin pie croissants and pumpkin cupcakes...and we gave out pumpkin cookie party favors. Everything was orange and yummy! I got all the paper goods and cookie packaging supplies from the dollar bins at Target when I went with my friend Kara a few weeks ago. I love a good deal and they always have such cute things in those bins!

The boys and their friends had a blast decorating their pumpkins with paint, glitter, buttons and stickers!

They also enjoyed games of pumpkin ring toss and pumpkin bowling!

And of course a game of baseball broke out! You can't tell from the picture because Big A had just mowed, but we actually have a baseball field mowed into the grass in our front yard...we play lots of baseball around here!

I wanted to get a picture of all the kiddos with their decorated pumpkins, but I thought that might be pushing my luck! :) I did get a picture of Little A and Little E's finished pumpkins!

Pretty creative! I think I have a couple of little artist's on my hands! ;)

All in all it was a great party!

What about you? Do you have any fun fall party ideas?
