The Fall Event

We had our very own "school party" to celebrate Autumn this year.

The kids made leaf crowns

(Well...the moms helped a LOT)

We played pin the apple on the tree- tempura paint washes off glass just fine, I love having this great big sliding door in the dining room for these kinds of games!

We almost missed this game entirely, which would have been a shame (because then I'd be left with two boxes of mini donuts), but twenty minutes before everyone leaving Ernie shrieked "Mom! What about the DONUTS!!" because I bought those donuts three days earlier, and she'd had to stare at them all week long waiting for this particular game. (She and her friend tied in their round....quickest player was the 8-year-old who snagged the whole thing in her mouth and just pullllllllled it off. So effective!)

We played duck duck goose (an Ernie favorite), and had a little lunch of peanut butter and honey on wheat, kettle corn, apple slices, and sugar cookies baked by Aunt LoLo.

I am SO lucky that some of my best friends happen to have friends who get along great with the kids! We were sad we couldn't invite more families, but inviting just 3 families already had the attendance up to 17 people! Ernie has already extracted the promise that we'll do a Spring Event too...and Nana and Grandpa, she kind of figures YOU'LL be happy to run that event while you're here, since I'll busy with the new baby. Ha.

The pictures are great and it looks like it was a really fun time. Oh, how I miss having young children.

Have a great one, Myrnie!

Ohhh, that's so much fun! Those kids are so lucky. I wish someone will organize a fall party for me :) Hehe
