Halloween Weekend

I haven't posted in a while because I have been quite busy doing things other than parenting twins, cleaning and cooking.  This year, I volunteered to organize our Mother of Twins club annual Halloween Party and we finally had it this past Saturday! 

The party was a big success, as far as I could tell.  I was freaking out a little bit because we had approximately double the number of RSVPs compared to last year and I was was sure we would break some sort of fire code.  But, with so many small people, 200 guests didn't really seem like that many and I'm sure we had a lot of no-shows.  The entertainment was great - we hired Joyce with Wiggles and Giggles and she did a fantastic job getting the kids singing and dancing.  For those of you in the area, she does do smaller events, like birthday parties and such, so check out her site if you're looking for a fun, non-clown, non-magician entertainer for your little ones.  And, as always, the bounce house was HUGE hit. 

Of course, I have no pictures because I was so busy running around playing hostess.  Billy got a few good ones on his phone so I'll have to steal those later.  In the meantime, Zimmer Zoo has some shots of her nuggets at the party - check 'em out here!

Now that this is behind us, I have to start planning the twins' first birthday party.  Would it be totally white trash of me to have the party at Chuck E Cheese, considering my kids won't even be walking, let alone playing games?  *Sigh*


  1. Do you have a Children's Museum nearby that does birthdays? Ours has a section for crawlers.

  2. The party was a lot of fun. I'm sure it was a ton of work. Thanks for organizing it! Lots of time spent running after Michael and watching the twins!

  3. It was great fun! Thank you for organizing it!

    And for the first birthday, if lots of older kids are coming, I say go with Chuck E Cheese. I LOVE it there! But if you don't plan to have lots of kids, make it a party for YOU (and your husband :). It doesn't have to be kid-friendly at all...celebrate surviving the 1st year! It's really the only birthday that's mostly all about you, so milk it!

  4. You did a great job on the party! Do not worry about their first birthday - honestly it's more of a pain than anything else! Do it to celebrate how great you (and Billy) have done this year.

  5. The party was great! You did such an awesome job :)

    I have more pictures if you want...I took a few random ones and a few of people I know too (What a Card and Mommy, Esq. are in there...) I was going to take more, but I got busy chatting and running around after kids!

  6. I swear one of my boys looks like he could be related to your daughter! I am sure you can figure out which one :-)
