Jillian's perfect Halloween Birthday Bash for Ethan

Last Sunday my good friend Jillian gave a lovely Halloween style 6th birthday party for her son Ethan who is one of Henry's best friends.She put Martha Stewart to shame.She bought some non latex plastic gloves from a deli and put candy corn at the fingertips and then filled them with popcorn. The creepy hands are spread in front of the tray of peanut butter bloodshot eyeballs.

She made yummy mummy shaped calzones that had a red bloody sauce to drizzle on top.

Lovely pumpkin cookies .

The birthday cake was a moist ,rich chocolate cake with ganache filling and a praline frosting.

The dudes assumed the position on the couch while the cutest superman ever (Max) entertains us. Check out his cowboy rubber boots and his extra utility belt.We've been getting a lot of use out of this Batman costume since the day we got it.
Henry the farmer engages in some M-n-M grazing. This is the same costume he chose last year. Simple and understated. He's not really one of those dress-up superhero type kids.He'll just do whatever it takes to get some candy.

The highlight of the party was when Ethan's baby sister Olivia surprised us with taking her first real long steps. I happened to have my camera on at the time and was able to catch the little pumpkin walking across the room for the first time:

I've decided to blow off the Saturday Market tomorrow. Last weekend we had perfect weather and a late starting hometown football game and sales were still disappointing. Luckily we got an unexpected wholesale order so I have the perfect excuse to not go tomorrow.

I love what Jillian did for the party. As a newly initiated 1st grade "room mother" I'm definitely going to steal the popcorn hand idea. Some people are so good at stuff. Thanks for the ideas!

Looks like a great time. Walker has the same Batman outfit that Max is wearing. So cute!
