costume party!

I can't believe it's been two weeks since Oliver's birthday party! The costume party was his idea, along with his costume - Santa, and the Easter Bunny pinata he picked out :) My newly turned four year old loves Christmas and Santa more than anyone I know, so it was really no surprise when he chose his costume. And thanks to Gramma he ended up with a handmade adorable outfit. I decided the rest of the family should follow Oliver's theme, so Nick, Elliott and I dressed up as elves. Penny was out hiking during the party but I did order her some reindeer antlers for Halloween in case she wants to wear them.

 The party was a blast and everyone had a good time. We came up with some fun Halloween-themed food and it was so much fun to see the kids in costumes. And thank you as always to our friend Jason Meert for taking most of the amazing pictures below!

Happy 4th, Oliver!
