Pumpkin pie flavor in a little cookie cup!
I love fall birthdays. In our family, we celebrate two. My oldest just turned 10 and my youngest will soon turn 5. These months always hold a special place in my heart. Plus, parties seem to be way more fun in the fall!
I vividly remember going to a friend’s Halloween costume birthday party back in elementary school. My sisters both assisted me in creating the most ingenious costume. I was a bag of jelly beans. I was enveloped by a clear bag full of colored balloons. My best friend was an Oreo. We were a sweet little pair!
Out of all the birthday parties I attended as a kid, this one stands out the most. We had a costume judging contest, we danced to the “Monster Mash”, we bobbed for apples (a first for me), we ate Halloween themed food and went through a haunted house in the basement.
By the end of the night, all my balloons had popped and the clear bag was torn. But I didn’t care. I had the best night of my life! Yes, there’s just something about a fall birthday.
