Yesterday was 31st October, the day in the year where everyone can dress up us a ghoul, ghost, witch or devil and stuff themselves full of sugar should they so wish. For us it allowed the perfect excuse to throw our very first Halloween party – for the girls of course
I had the opportunity to carve my very first pumpkin which you can see here to your right and I’m sure you’ll agree it’s an excellent first go, I may get more adventurous as the years go by, we’ll see.
Of course you have to have guests if you’re going to throw a party and we certainly weren’t short of those as we extended an invitation to the entire twins club, much to daddy’s horror delight.
The party was to take place at our house from 3pm to 5pm and so the next thing was to organise our outfits. Once again, in a way that only I can manage, I proved to be particularly dim. On my search at the local Asda, I was annoyed that they had years 1-2 and 3-4 but never stocked any 2-3. I went back on three occasions until it finally dawned on me that 1-2 took us right up to the end of year 2 and then one moves on to the 3-4. Happy to hav e finally grasped teh sizing issue, I hastily choose two from the racks and popped them in my trolley. I also bought a skeleton for Paul and a bright pink wig and hat for me. I was ready, bring it on.
We hung our happy Halloween banner across the front window to make it easier for our guests to find us, I had a sparkly spiders web across the porch window and an illuminated plastic pumpkin sitting on dried leaves just inside the door to set the scene. Isabel and Samuel were the first to arrive and I had to remove my wig and hat as they didn’t recognise me and were refusing to enter cowering behind their mummy! In fact the wig and hat didn’t make it back on in the end and all of the guests were probably wondering why the hell I had bright pink striped socks on!
