Can I finally pull off a Halloween party?


Like my little Happy Spider?

Ever since my little boy was 6 months old (he's now 6 years old) I have been wanting to throw a Halloween party. Between 2 moves, 2 more pregnancies, my lovely "organization skills" and life in general, it never happened. Also, the first year was a waste because why would I throw a Halloween party for a 6 month old in the first place? We could have done it for the adults to socialize and joy of seeing their little ones in costumes but we didn't know many people in our area then.

Anyway, we are officially having a Halloween party this year! Wish me luck in that it goes smoothly and that the kids have fun! I always put way too much pressure on myself when it comes to parties. I stopped having them before I turned 10 as I was always afraid that no one would show...Or, worse yet that they would show and they would not have any fun. Can you believe I thought like that so early on? I was painfully shy & insecure as a kid and am so glad I'm not like that now. Well, at least not most of the time :) I want my kids to grow up secure and confident!

OK, baby is crying so I have to go. Enjoy your day!

All the best, I'm sure your children will have a wonderful time. I would love to see your party as we don't really celebrate it in New Zealand (it is starting to gain momentum) Thank you for poping by to visit and your kind words
