Tonight, Annabelle & Allie are hosting their “first annual” Pumpkin Party. We’re calling it first annual, in hopes that it will be a success and be something that we do every year.
All week we’ve been getting ready for the big night. We’ve spent so much time with Aunt Carrie & Allie this week that we’ll sure miss them when the party is over and life turns into normal again next week! Here’s a few pictures of the week from my phone…
On Monday afternoon, the girls came over to go out to the lodge to finalize our shopping list and plans.
On Wednesday, we met them in town, and made our big trip to Sam’s, Wal-Mart, Michael’s and the party shop. If being a good girl on a shopping trip is what get’s you a pumpkin party, I know two little girls who WOULD NOT be having one! Ha… The girls were a HANDFUL that day!
Carrie and I went all kinds of crazy and decided to break our traditional lunching routine. Typically, we go either to Chick-Fil-A or to McAlisters. Carrie knew it was Chicken Pot Pie day, though, at the Cracker Barrel, so we went there. Yep, some might go somewhere they don’t frequent often or somewhere NEW, not us…when we stray from the ordinary, we stick to the familiar. Ha..
Yesterday, Carrie & Allie came to our house and we worked on finishing up a few decorations and last minute details. We finished up the table centerpieces and a few other things. The girls played (and fought) outside and had a big time. They both LOVE to share these days. Ha.I can’t believe I posted this picture of my girl who’d spilled juice all down the front of her shirt and yanked the bow out of her hair, BUT, check out her face! She’s giving Allie quite the stink eye…This is when they decided to “trade” shoes… AB’s crocs are the pink ones, and somehow she’d managed to get one of Allie’s green ones on… What you can’t see is that Allie’s wearing AB’s pink water boots…If Allie is going to give up any pair of shoes, it will be for some boots! :) She kept walking around the garage and yard saying, “MY BOOTS, MY BOOTS”…
Along with sharing, they LOVE to sit still and take pictures, too. (Ha., AGAIN).
Carrie and I thought the girls would be dolls dressed as pumpkins hosting their “pumpkin party”…and they are! They are SOMETHING in their costumes—they both love them! AB cries when I take hers off…. And their sequined black flats we found at Wal-Mart? She threw down and HAD to wear them to dinner Wednesday night with my parents. I can’t believe that she’s already got such an opinion and she’s not even TWO yet! She’s worn them around the house ALL WEEK…
This morning, we’ll all meet at the lodge to start setting up for our little friends and their families who will arrive later this evening, and to say we’re excited, is an understatement!
