Paw Patrol Party!

I feel like this is just turning into a party blog haha but I love throwing parties!!! My little teeny baby will be 4 in just a couple days and I am a little sad about it... where has the time gone!?!? We had such a blast celebrating though with all this friends and family! 

Bostons is OBSESSED with Paw Patrol so naturally that was the theme this year! 

I had a lot of fun making the big sign and all the puppy logos, but man they took a while!!! Looks pretty cute though if I do say so myself :)

The spread! 

We had PUPcorn, bone krispies, candies....

...Dog food (choc covered raisins) and cake for treats!! Does anyone know the trick to getting RED icing, because I need to know it! Every time I attempt it turns out hot pink haha so we had to go with white for the bottom, its not my favorite cake I have ever done but it still tasted good! 

Party hats, treat bags and they each got to "adopt" a puppy! I was pretty excited about this part haha. 

After everyone arrived we started off with making our own PUPperoni pizzas!

I was super impressed with how well they all did, and they were delicious!

They gobbled up pizza and treats all night haha and they all had fun walking around with bones in their mouths like real puppies! 

I REALLY lacked on my photo taking skills during games haha so there aren't many but we played Pin the badge on Chase....

Marshall Fire Rescue 

The cups were "fire" and they had to shoot them down with water guns to put out the fire haha. And we played Boston's personal favorite "Don't Eat Pete" with all the candy form the table.  Then it was cake and presents and this kid got SPOILED!!! 

We had the happiest Paw Patroller around! 

I can't believe he is FOUR! He is the sweetest, happiest, craziest kid we know! He is the BEST brother and friend and we can't wait to see what the next 4 years with him brings! He has certainly changed our lives for the better, We love you Boston!!!

Halloween Partaay!

Halloween '16 was such a success!!

Brian had school until 10pm and we had no costume party at church (bummer) so Brian and I opted out of costumes this year :( I know... SAD! But the kids looked pretty stellar in their ninja turtle costumes!

Best ninja poses haha (the hats gave MAJOUR elf ear)

Ninja kick!!

And I got a little excited about Bailey's first Halloween and spent WAY too much on her costume at the Disney store haha. 

My little Minnie :) 

She loved sucking on the gloves all night!

What a cute bunch!! 

Boston asked so nicely if we could have a Halloween party, so naturally (being the party lover that I am) said HECK YES!!! I have always wanted to throw a halloween one :)

We spent most of the day decorating and making treats until everyone got off work. I wish I knew how to use my awesome camera better and could have gotten a picture of what it really looked like, the lights were dim and my pumpkin changes colours and blows smoke, so cool!!

Treat table!!

Candy Apple Pops, Ghost PB&J, Mummy Dogs

Cake, Vampire Doughnuts (you can't really see but they had those plastic vampire teeth in the holes), Pumpkin Krispies

Our Halloween cake looked so cool inside!!

Popcorn, Juice and Chips

After everyone arrived and we snacked for a bit we went off Trick-or-Treating!
Grandma dressed up as Ketchup haha. The boys LOVED it!! They ran up, rang the bell, said "Trick-or-Treat" and then "Thank-you, Happy Halloween!!" all on their own, they are just the cutest :) And they got SO much candy!!!

Brandon and Melanie dressed up as turtles too so we had the whole set!! They were great Trick-or-Treating buddies :) 

But then we came back and played a few games before bed!

First was Poke-a-Pumpkin

They all took turns punching the cups to find more treats inside!

Then I had made a haunted bowl game (what would you call it? haha) with Monster Tongue (banana cut in half), Vampire Eyeballs (peeled grapes), Gremlin Toenails (Frosted Flakes), Witch Fingers (cooked carrots), and Zombie Brains! (spaghetti)

I'm not sure they enjoyed this as much as I remember as a kid haha, maybe they need to be a bit older still....

Then we had a doughnut eating contest! Aubrey and Taysom (dressed as Anna and Jake the Pirate, so cute!!! Aubrey even had the boots, I was a little jealous haha) had already played this once before so they were pros, Boston just grabbed his string and cheated after one try and I don't think Banner ever did get his.. haha. 

Then the Big boys wanted to take a turn!

Brigham got his off first but he didn't realize the point of the game was to eat it first haha.

Don't Eat Pete!!! 

I forgot how much I LOVE Bulk Barn, so many cool Halloween treats there! 

Sticky, messy face! Signs of a good night! 

Then we finished off the night with Pumpkin painting! (Boston's crooked glasses... haha) 

After the kids went to sleep we all watched a scary movie downstairs! (I may have kept leaving to go clean up, I don't do scary very well, especially without Brian haha)

We had such a fun night and were so glad everyone could could come and play!! Until next year...
