Lux was invited to a Fall fun party with a bunch of really fun big kids.
She is intrigued with big kids and even though she thinks they're too loud sometimes, she loves watching what they're doing and where they are going.
It was such a sweet time with these kids and really made me giddy for the days that Lux'll be able to participate in the things they were doing:)
They have a donut eating contest…Lux couldn't quite participate yet because she doesn't have the teeth to chomp the donut off the string;).
But she watched as the big kids pulled the sugary treats off the string and screamed and squealed as they competed in their chomping skills!:)
Next the kids decorated cookies.
Lux sat with her friend, Miss Carmen, and together they decorated a cookie for her daddy.
She looked so tiny sitting with all the big kids! But she was happy to participate, even though she was much more interested in pulling on the table cloth to gather ALL the cookies in her lap. (don't worry, we stopped her before she did!;) I know, I know, her big chunky arms made you think she succeeded.)
While they finished their cookies, the ladies were setting up the next station of fun.
Here is Lux with her friend, Miss Karen. Miss Karen made yummy yummy apple cider from actual apples! That was my first time ever drinking such an amazing treat.
Andrew really likes sprinkles.
After they finished they moved on to their pumpkin decorating.
The kids were really creative as they painted their pumpkins with fun colors and glow in the dark paint!
Lux and I tackled a pumpkin together, and she gleefully hit the pumpkin with her wet paintbrush.
She really just wanted to chew on it though. Mommy had to stop her, and got in between her and the paintbrush. (Where I realized how hard she's biting! This girl is teething!)
"YES! I DID DECORATE A PUMPKIN!" She seems to be letting the big kids know.
"AAAAHH!!!! I HAVE A PUMPKIN!" She was very excited.
So there ya have it. This girl had her first fun party ever.
Such a special time for her and for mommy to see the things that we have to look forward to as Lux grows up! I am pumped about what we'll do together in the many falls ahead!
