Fall Pumpkin Party!

With the adoption process taking up so much of our time these days, we decided we needed to have a little fun and let our 4 year old know that we hadn't forgotten about him! So we invited some friends over for a Pumpkin Palooza Party!

I must be crazy because I planned this party the same week that our adoption home visit was to take place. I wanted to do a deep clean before the social worker came, but first we had to make a huge mess with lots of kids and pumpkin guts!

Before the party, I stocked up on lots of pumpkins for carving, cleaned the house up for our guests, and whipped up some delicious snacks for everyone!



The Menu:
Mummy Hot Dogs
Spooky Jello Jigglers
Chips and dip
Caramel Apple Bites
Brownies and cookies
Halloween Punch


When everyone arrived, we enjoyed our party food! The kids loved the themed snacks and what's a party without a yummy punch? Then, we left the mess inside and headed outside carve the pumpkins!



Tip! If you want to host a pumpkin carving party with lots of kids, be sure to have lots of adults to help too! 

The kids loved picking out their designs and getting messy with the pumpkin guts! Okay, so not everyone loved the pumpkin guts. I pretty much did all the work for my 4 year old, but we still had fun!



Once the pumpkins were carved and the food was devoured, it was time for clean up! Thanks to Mr. Clean Concentrated Clean, it took me no time to get my house back in normal shape so I could focus on my deep clean for the home visit. I spent the rest of the week scrubbing baseboards. In the 4 years we've lived here, I've never scrubbed them...gross! But Mr. Clean made it easy and almost effortless!
