We have decided not to do a monthly Kenzie Day anymore. Instead we are just going to do a couple a year and making those extra special. It was getting a little to hard getting everyone together and figure out something to do every month. It had been a couple months since our last party so I was extra excited for our Halloween party this year. I didn't go near as crazy with decor, treats and food but it ended up being one of the best parties yet.
We had some of the best guests any party could imagine.
Uniqua (from backyardagains)
Deep sea diver
Cat in the Hat
Queen of Hearts
Alice in Wonderland
We had spooky breakfast food.
bat droppings (coco puffs)
monster eyes (kix)
dead skin (cinnamon toast crunch)
There was lots of playing, laughing, running, joking, bingo, games...
The bingo prizes were candy bars, lip gloss and tattoos. The kids had a blast. Addi and Teagan thought that every time I called out another item they had to scream BINGO. It was pretty hilarious. We played over and over. It was the best game and every kid just sat there eagerly waiting to win again. They ended up each walking away with 3 prizes.
Before it got to dark Ryan headed outside to spread the candy. Every year now we get bags and bags of candy and toys and spread it all over the yard. We let everyone go crazy and they all walk away with a ton of goodies. I thought of doing something different this year but was told that was unacceptable. This is one of those things they all look forward to.
and of course Kenzie's balloons.
-Tracker sent the first balloon. His first balloon sent to his sister-
We ended the night with cookies and chatting for hours.
Oh my sweet sweet Makenzie, I hope you enjoyed our little party in honor of you. Your cousins love to get together and remember you. We miss you. They love sending you all those balloons and this time tried their hardest to attach candy to their balloon to send you. It didn't work. but we all know you have more candy in Heaven than we all do here. I cant believe 3 years ago we were celebrating Halloween together. You and your cute punk rock costume. So tiny. I cant believe how long ago that seems on one hand but seems like just yesterday on another. We will never ever forget you. We will never stop celebrating your life. Thank you for watching out for all of us. Thank you for sending us all your love. Thank you for being apart of our family. I hope you feel how incredibly loved you are.
I hope you have a great costume this year.
I love you.
I miss you.
