The 8th Annual...

...Pumpkin Party took place this past weekend! It's hard to believe that we've been doing this for 8 years! When we started, there were no kids! This year we welcomed 13 ranging in age from 7 and a half to 1 and a half. It was the perfect mix and they all had a great time!

The menu was the same as it is every year: Santa Fe Soup served with cheese, sour cream, and Scoops.

The kids ate caramel apples (we cut them then they dipped them in caramel and chose a topping like chocolate chips or sprinkles--the least messy caramel apples ever!) for dessert.

And the adults enjoyed Pumpkin Spice Cake with Maple Cream Cheese Icing.

The kids dug out pumpkin guts.

Moms and dads planned...

...and carved.

And--whaaaalaaa!! Some pretty cute finished products, don'tcha think?

We crafted:

Hunted for bones and assembled a skeleton:

Filled treat bags:

And awed at an amazing sunset!

Thanks, sweet friends, for 8 great years of memories!

Until next year...
