Last weekend we ended up having one big Football/Halloween/Birthday party! On the menu was bacon, pink cupcakes, and crepes, as per Hadassah's demand.
We found out some interesting facts like, my Mom sure didn't get a fancy party like this when she was 5! She was pretty sure she did manage to get a nice kick-in-the-pants from Rex and Randy though.
We also had some wild trick-or-treaters. I almost got knocked down by quite a few little girls trying to make it into the "Princess Party" going on at our house. We also managed to run out of candy, and all the tiny vampires and werewolves were very displeased. I was pretty impressed with all the 16-year-old moms (yes, "all the", need I remind you, we live in Coon Rapids) getting candy "for their baby". Veeery tricky!
We had a great time, and were so happy to be able to host it!

This is Carson and Chloe brooding about Favre. Midway through the game when they finally did put in Tarvaris Jackson, Carson basically screamed for 10 minutes straight when he made the touchdown.

I was able to pick up enough flowery-pink china for all 16 of us at the thrift store, and we decorated everything in pink.

It was a pretty exciting party! I took a lot more pictures, but these were just some of the highlights!
Also, just so David doesn't get his knickers in a twist, Hadassah got some pretty cute ballerina shoes to go with her tutu and a huuge pack of Polly-Pockets from him. Hadassah is still deciding who won the Best-Uncle-Ever award.
