A Pumpkin Decorating Party

Today, despite temperatures in the 90′s, we celebrated fall with a backyard Pumpkin Decorating party.

It was a low-key event in our backyard with some friends and we all had a great time.

The kids decorated pumpkins, big and small, with googly eyes, glitter paints, pipe cleaners, and tape.  The end results were actually quite cute.

I thought Luke and Lila would like coloring on a pumpkin but they had their hands in the Monster Munchies the whole time.

When pumpkins were decorated, the kids had a doughnut eating contest … the doughnuts were hanging from the tree and the kids had to eat them without using their hands.  The perfect party activity!

Welcome Fall!
