Yes, this is a CRAZY time of year for us....Not only does Halloween have as many fun, kid activities as Christmas, but it is also my 2nd daughter's bday!!Julia's bday falls 2 days before Halloween..and this year she turned the BIG 7!! My Julia is our little LOVE!! She is sweet, funny, easy going, kind hearted and slightly more outgoing than her older sister!! She loves her friends and has always made us all laugh!! Her big Sister and her Cousin Haiden are her two favorite 7 and 8 yr. olds in the world....but Lucy Lane will always be her favorite baby girl in the world!! Julia adores her family and always gives the BEST HUGS!!!We usually have a Halloween themed party for JuJu..and this year was no different!!! We've worked all week getting stations and such set up in our garage...The kids have ALL been a huge help and I could never put on these things with out all their help!! Julia invited her entire class over last night (friday..her actual bday) PLUS a few favorite other friends...and WHAM...we had a nice big crowd coming!!!
We dipped caramel apples (thanks mom for your help with that), face painted (thanks a million Jules for all your help with that), craft tables, tattoos...and even bobbed for apples...
above ,we have Julia's cookie cake...this was her request this year instead of a "regular" cake!
above, the jumpy people arrived to set up the jumpy in the drive way.....and Jules painted this wrapping paper for Julia below:
And, here she is....Disco Dolly aka "birthday girl":Yes, it was a Halloween Dress Up party...so all the kids wore their costumes...so fun:
Oh....and did you hear the BUZZZZZZZ....there's a NEW LITTLE BUMBLE BEE IN TOWN:
Oh....she's just too cute:
And, we have my two girls who are 7 and 8 now..plus Cousin Haiden who is 7 too:
bobbing for apples was fun:
The only pic of me from the night...posing with sister kasey:
And, she was ready to blow out the candles:
We love you JuJu Bean....you are the greatest 7 yr. old in the world...and we think you hung the moon:
*Still trying to recover from staying up ALL night for several nights in a row to get ready for this...plus the reading to her class for her bday...plus the eating lunch with her and buying her class ice cream at school (that's what they have parents do for bdays at their school)...ALL WHILE TWO BABES WERE ON MY HIP!! :) crazy but fun times!! :) BUT...the party was LOTS of fun....Julia had the time of her life...and well....we mustard up enough energy to head to the homeless shelter this morning to dress and load up kids for the annual Ordinary Hero Fall Festival they do for the kids and moms from the Nashville Rescue Mission!! I'll be posting pics from that soon...a great time. Plus the Halloween Hay Ride party we were invited to tonight by some of my hubby's clients....cute pics from that too!! Phew....yes, still trying to catch my breath...and Halloween isn't until tomorrow!! :) LOL Will be posting #3 post about my trip too...very soon..i promise!! :) Alright...that's all i've got!!!
**Happy 7th bday Julia....Happy Halloween Eve....and Happy Saturday to you all, kj
