To bring the fun to the fiesta, Marigold was a piñata! Filled with sweetness, here she is:
|No whacking allowed! :)|
Of course every party go-er needs an entertaining host, so Levi was a maraca playing amigo!
And what's a fiesta without some authentic décor? Ruslana was a cactus!
|Just like a cactus, this girl thrives outside in the sun!|
And since Levi couldn't party alone, wouldn't you know it, Frida Kahlo made an appearance!
To make sure the fiesta didn't get too out of control, don't worry--there were chaperones:
We first brought the party to my dads house for a quick visit:
Levi said anything before 10:00 pm is way too early to party, so he wasn't feeling his poncho at the moment. I'll also note that I had a sweet 'stache planned for him, but that didn't happen. Who knew a 2 year old wouldn't want a fake mustache on their face?!
After visiting with my dad, we headed over to my mom's house to go trick-or-treating. We went down our old street with my mom and father-in-law. It was so cute seeing Ruslana and Levi in action! Levi made sure to say thank you to each piece of candy he got, as well as say "bye-bye!" to each candy giver. And Ruslana's costume was quite a hit! She got extra candy at several houses due to the creativity of her costume. Score! And last but not least, Marigold, I mean the piñata, was an angel while the "big" kids gathered candy--she didn't make a peep!
After we finished trick or treating, the kids checked out their loot:
|Levi: "Mama, choc (aka chocolate)?!!!"|
We had a fun family night and made some great memories together. Plus we have a ton of candy to eat, so I'd say it was a pretty successful night!
