Happy Harvest: Always time for a good costume party

Our friends the Toslands invited us to a costume party. With a little urging from Meilani girl, our family dressed as ballet dancers from the Nutcracker Ballet. Meilani was dressed as Clara (carrying her nutcracker). Giada was our sweet Sugar Plum Fairy. Mama was a Chinese Dancer. And Daddy even bravely donned some tights and dressed as a male dancer.

Giada had big fun in the Toslands' bounce house. She thought it was so fun to jump and twirl in her fairy princess dress. She looked positively royal!

This party was a fun chance to reconnect with some friends we haven't seen in a long time. It's amazing how quickly all the kids have grown when you haven't seen each other for a while.

They may have been dressed to impress in princess wear but these girls were all Tom boy! They sped around the Toslands' race track, batted down the pinata and crawled through the tunnels and spider-webbed forest. So much fun!

Amy (Miss Baker Extraordinaire) had a cupcake and cookie decorating station. These boo-tiful cakes were moist pumpkin with cream cheese frosting and sprinkles. Spook-tacular! Meilani & Giada came home with a bag full of candy to trade Daddy for pennies and a trip to the craft store.
