Miss Patti's Neighborhood Party

 My sweet friend Patti puts on a Halloween party for all the neighborhood kids every year.  This is the first year we were able to attend.  It was so fun.  The kids had a great time.
 She served sloppy Joes, and we all brought side dishes.
 The kids got to throw wet sponges at this very nice dad.  He was such a good sport.
 Everyone got to pick a prize.  Emma and Sara got markers and a notebook and Jack picked a football.  I think it is funny that Emma insisted on wearing that headband even though she has been growing out her own Rapunzel hair just for this costume. 
After this came the pinata, but my camera was dead.  They started with the littlest kids and let everyone have two hits.  The big kids got it open, and Patti, knowing all the little kids were being held back in the crowd snuck up behind them with a bag of candy and started throwing it down for them.  They were so excited.  Patti is such a sweet friend and I am so grateful for her.
