Pum-Pum Party

Abby has discovered pumpkins and calls them pum-pums. So, Saturday night, we had some friends over for a pum-pum party. The kids almost outnumbered the adults which meant the party was outside and needed activities!
Sweet Lila and her Mom Andrea joined us for the fun. Lila is at the crazy age where her Andrea couldn't partake in much fun and had to just follow Lila around all night!
Ellie, the happiest baby you just might ever meet!
Abby has a mess- she loved the sidewalk chalk and sat in her artwork making her a chalk covered kiddo! She had no interest in eating with all of the activity and had skipped her nap. You can imagine..... we put her to bed in the middle of the party!
The adults did carve pumpkins- Jessica was a pro and Marcus and Alice were just learning.
We had a little mat and watercolors for the kids to paint small pumpkins. We learned that water colors rub right off pumpkins.... I'll plan that out better next year!
David and Catie still had fun painting, rubbing it off and painting again!
The inside of a pumpkin is pretty gross!
Marcus' pumpkin- go Raiders!
Alice's classic jack-o-lantern.
Mo and Jess, the pros, made a very respectable spider.
I have absolutely no pictures of Brandi and Daniel... but they were here and we loved seeing them and Brandi's growing baby belly!

Looks like it was fun! For next year...Acrylic paints work great for painting on pumpkins...I think tempera does ok too, but I can't remember.
