Last year, Rick went all out for Miss Ella's pumpkin and carved her a Tinkerbell Pumpkin. It was quite the beauty compared to the other three in our family patch out front, but she deserved it...it is pretty close to her birthday after all. As much Ella had a Halloween themed third birthday last year. We had it on Halloween, so all of the kiddos came in costume and ready for some treats (and tricks....)
Soooo cute, right? The pumpkin buckets had double duty as they were filled with favors and had all of the invitees names on them to use that evening. This year the girls will both be collecting their goodies in our personalized buckets
These will look so adorable with their matching Strawberry Fairy costumes (don't worry...plenty of pics to follow!) But back to last year's birthday party, the tricks came out when we played quite possibly my favorite party game EVER!!!! We tied donuts to a string, hung from another string, made the kids stand with their hands behind their backs and eat their donuts....
It was epically hysterical and required about three boxes of baby wipes to clean off their faces, but we all adored it! Afterwards, we went our separate ways and gathered up enough candy to fill their buckets a few times over. Maybe that is why I love Halloween so much, it is always so memorable. Last year more than ever so, as it was our first holiday as a family of four.
