2017 Halloween Costume Party And Sleep Over!!


Another fun new Halloween tradition.    Like last year, Daniel invited several friends from school for a costume and sleepover party.  


 If you've ever hosted a kid's sleepover than I'm sure you're aware of the energy needed to endure such an event.  Especially, when it's around a holiday that involves lots of sugar.  


The dining room was decor was inspired by the classic Alfred Hitchcock thriller " The Birds".


Daniel in the backyard setting up the movie projector the night before.   Love that he still loves being a kid yet is mature enough to help with set up.


Backyard is set up and ready for Saturday night's movie and activities. 


The special guests such as Link,Harry Potter and the Grim Reaper started to arrive after 3:30pm ready to cast spells and do battle!

COOKIE DECORATING 


 Before the first movie, the kids decorated cookie dough for the oven.


MOVIE TIME!


This year's movies were Hotel Transylvania and Monster House.  It was a great idea not to offer them any sugar until after the movies.




Intermission for Pizza!!!!!




After pizza came a few sweet treats which got them on their feet dancing to the movie.


After the movies, the kids headed up to Daniel's room for a few board and electronic games before ending the evening with the boy's sleepover(knocked out at 2:30am and woke up at 4am according to them).  It was a great evening.  Always love seeing Daniel so happy.  Happy Halloween!
