After all the festivities and opportunities Wills had to wear his costume last year, I decided to put more effort into his costume and actually made it myself. Unfortunately, this is the year he decided to be opinionated about his costume, and he refuses to wear it. We got it on him long enough for a couple of pictures. Hopefully as the month goes on he will warm up to it.
Wills is a donut, I am a contestant on the Biggest Loser, and Charles is Bob Harper, one of the trainers on the show. I love the Biggest Loser and our entire household loves donuts, so I really thought this was a winning idea. Wills did not really agree.
Here we are in our skeleton shirts so we could at least still be festive without being in costume. Charles still has his fake tattoo sleeves on. He said he was chilly. :)
This was our lowest turnout for the party so far. We had some sick little ones and I also think having it the very first weekend in October might have been a little too early for some. I just wasn't willing to risk it any later in the month since we only have 2 1/2 weeks until our due date!
This year costumes included Kermit the Frog, a mermaid (there were supposed to be two, but someone else was also boycotting her costume!), a chicken, Thor, a bat and an astronaut. The weather was unbelievably nice, so we just let the kids run around and play outside. I had planned on some crafts and had a bean bag toss game, but decided to pass on the organized activities this year.
I also kept it low key on the food this year and tried to keep things as easy as possible while still being festive.
Party favors were smores kits. They each have two graham crackers, a small Hershey bar and a pumpkin marshmallow.
Overall, a great start to all our Halloween festivities!
