While Peanut has been reading his Halloween book,
my mom and I have been busy, busy, busy
getting ready for his birthday party.
We like to go with a "less is more" design aesthetic.
If you know us at all, you are shaking your head right now.
The thing is, the more time I have the more details that get added on.
You would think that I would start early and then finish early.
This is always the idea.
This has never happened.
Instead, every day another project gets added.
We started a few crafts back in September.
I still have a ton of things (like food and cupcakes) that can't be done ahead of time.
And maybe B & I will have little half-costumes, if I can give up sleeping and pull something together.
Yes, I know he's only turning 1.
But I figure I don't have that many years until he wants input on his parties....
and the 1st is always the biggest one.
Anyway, reinforcements are on their way.
B's parents come into town today and will be devoted to taking care of him
so I can decorate 70 cupcakes and set up all of our Halloween decorations.
How do you celebrate Halloween?
