Halloween Parties

Sleeping Beauty (Sage) & the Snow Queen (Sophie)

They should've been monkeys with the banana (Trev) but they couldn't pass up a chance to be beautiful princesses. Of course Sophie couldn't be all fancy, she picked out the scariest trick or treat bag to contrast her gown, that's my girl.

We went to "Boo at the Zoo" this year. The kids enjoyed it but it wasn't that great. It was overcrowded, long lines, and I got yet another parking ticket, Nice (there's such limited parking, they must have issued at least 100 tickets that morning). Oh well, next year we'll pass on that party. But our city held a fabulous Haunted Halloween celebration. They thought of everything and went all out. The kids enjoyed the face painting, games, crafts, live music, doughnuts, and got to choose a pumpkin from the pumpkin patch at the end. They had spooky stories in the cemetary across the street (we missed that) but enjoyed touring the Sorenson home/museum (old antique home). It was well organized, quaint, and a lot of fun, just wish I was as organized and remembered my camera. Here are some other fun Halloween parties...

What adorable princesses!!! I heard Boo at the Zoo was so crazy.... Sounds like a fun city party, though.
