What a Difference a Year makes!

Last Monday night we had our annual (can't remember which number) Halloween party at Grandma's house. I figured this would be a fun way for us to celebrate together, Grandma gets to see the kids in their Halloween costumes and on Halloween night Mom & Dad don't have to stress over bringing the kiddies over to see their grandparents.

As usual, it was chaotic, fun, loud, at times hilarious......

This is a snapshot of the group from last year.....
This is the photo from last Monday.....
The fact that we got these guys up on the wall with no casualties was a miracle! Unfortunately we never got a photo with them all looking ahead at the same time.

So without further ado-and here's hoping that Blogger will download the photos.....
Here's the details of the party, complete with crafting, games, mummy dogs and a pinata!

You are such a Granny inspiration! You do realize that you will be doing this until the day you die?!
That's not a bad thing...just sayin. Children do not let go of traditions...esp. when they are this fun!

You didn't say that it was about 80 degrees outside, so the fact that our babies were in only diapers wasn't a big deal ;)

I have to ask. What's with all the babies running around in their diapers. Is it still that hot there in the valley?

Just remember! Great Grandchildren come after Grandchildren.

Love the diaper clad pinata hitters! You must live in a warmer climate! The grandkids have grown so much in a year! It is amazing!
Looks like a fun party!

You have the cutest grandkids! I'll be so excited when I get grandkids some day! I love the idea of a party at Grandma's...I will want to adopt that tradition! :D

P.S. It was so much fun nearly running you over in the doorway of the scrapbook store! I thought you were cute in your pictures, but you're like ten times cuter in real life! :)

Look at that fun Grandma's Halloween party - I'm taking notes, someday I hope to have a bunch of those little ghosts and goblins :)
