Halloween is always a fun time for children.  They get to dress up, decorate pumpkins and of course Trick or Treat.

So that was the theme of our party this year.  Trick or Treat!

The colors were black and orange. 
We had black and orange candy.

Black and orange chips.

The table decorations were black and orange.
The goodie bags were Black and Orange.
The little coffin candy holders were black and orange and had black and orange candy inside.

Even the cupcakes were black and orange.

There was also a "story" about an old lady that lived in this house who was really a witch.  If you have not heard about it, have your girls tell you.

Trinity is showing the fireplace mantle that tells the full story.

The girls looked so cute in their costumes.

The girls all got to make their own pizza.  Who knew they were all such good cooks.

They got to decide what they put on their pizza. 

Some of the girls put more sauce, some more cheese.

The two little bee's finished their pizzas first.
Some put black olives, some put pepperoni.

They all put lots of cheese.

Once they were all made, into the oven they went.

They all were so excited to see how the pizzas came out. 

Cailyn made it just in time.  She quickly made her pizza and got caught up.
We enjoyed snacks and ghost stories as we waited for the pizza to cook.
The girls loved the ghost stories and kept asking for more.
They started to tell their own ghost stories...which were all true... of course.
We were all so excited to see how great the pizza turned out.  Plus, they taste wonderful.  Perhaps we should open up a troop pizza place.

By the way, don't they all look great in their costumes!

Everyone ate until they were ready to pop.
I don't think there was anything left on any one's plate.  I wonder why it is that when kids cook something themselves, it always tastes so much better to them.

It was a beautiful day out so, we headed outside to work on our craft project.

Everyone knows that I always try to fit in a lesson or two into everything we do.  Even when it's a fun party.

For our art project we did decoupage on canvas.  Which is actually one part of a badge we are working on.

While the art project was drying, the girls came back inside and they got to Trick or Treat with each other.

Each girl brought items to give to the other girls.  But, only after they said "Trick or Treat".

There were lots of laughs and giggles going on.

They really had a lot of fun doing this.  They enjoyed giving to each other and of course getting little treats from everyone was fun.

They got toys, candy, wash cloths, chap stick, stuffed animals and loads of other things.  So much, it wouldn't all fit into one bag.
After all the treats were handed out, the girls watched a darling Halloween movie.

What seemed like a blink of an eye was actually three hours and it was time for parents to come to take them home. 
They made sure they didn't forget to take home their art work.  What they made was silhouette pictures.

Silhouettes are dark shadows of a person or animals or figures. 
With the addition of a sparkling BOO and ribbon glued on the back, these pictures will look darling for years to come as they hang up on Halloween.

Everyone agreed they had a lot of fun and enjoyed everything we did.
