My husband has a birthday near Halloween – so this year I decided to throw a Halloween birthday party for him!

Decorations were put up,   tons of food was ordered, cider was mulled!

But the party never happened!

The day the party was to happen we were busy getting ready when it started raining. The rain didn’t let up, and soon there were tornado warnings not in our county- but some close by. We got some cancellations from my husbands friends- and then his family. Obviously we couldn’t throw the party without his friends or family- so we were forced to cancel it.

Boo!!! So disappointing!

Some of the families that we have play dates with decided they didn’t mind the rain- and came by anyway to help us eat some of the food and to hang out! Which was great!

Would you like a sneak peak into the party that never happened?
