My Party (That No one is coming too)

Well, tomorrow is the Children's Halloween Party at my home. I had six families coming (from the orginal ten invites)...and am down to two, possibly three families. I am so dissapointed especially since I seem to take things so personally. Regardless, I wanted to share these two photos with you.

Here's my version of the Kraft cake I posted a few days back. (I didn't want to buy an entire box of ice cream cones just to use ONE for the stem so tried to use a cup covered in frosting...next time I will get the ice cream cone--ha! I will also tint the frosting a deeper orange and not put the lines on the side of the pumpkin.)


And here is the pinata Mimi has been working on...not bad for a three year old...of course we helped some, but I am still impressed with her creativion! THANK YOU SO MUCH Jenna for the great response to my post! Love you back girl!

I'm so sorry that we're no going to be able to make it... :( If it makes you feel any better out of the 20 people that were invited to my party tonight, only TWO are coming. :(
