Fall Family Party

 A few weeks ago we had a family party.  It was fun to get everyone together for crafts and food.  I loved the T-shirts they made at the Orme Family Reunion this summer and thought it would be fun to make some Halloween shirts with our family.
 Jack is making a skeleton shirt with his dad.
 We were hoping for warm weather, but it was a little we ended up painting them in the garage instead of backyard.  
 Jodi and Katelynn (above) and Brandon (below).  First you twisted the shirt and sprayed it to make it look tie-dyed.  Then picked a stencil and sprayed on your design.  You just use regular spray paint.  We all had a blast making shirts!!

 The second craft was Marshmallow Guns that Pappa made.  He sprayed them black and then we used a sponge and paint to make them look chamo.  Eden is having fun painting hers.
 And then we had dinner.  Sloppy Joes, hot dogs, salads, chips, etc.  Jared made an apple and a peach pie.  I didn't get a picture of them, but they were so delicious.  That's going to be his assignment for every family party from now on.  Yummy!!  Katelynn has been wiping her food in her hair lately.  Funny little girl.
 BrookLynn poses every time you get your camera out.  Then she wants to see the pictures of her.  I get a kick out of her doing it.  What a cutie!

 Miss Jayda is wearing purple!  This girl loves anything to do with pink, purple, or Barbies.
 Jack putting all his energy into shooting marshmallows.  He'd giggle every time he shot one.
 Jaycee's painted hands.  I had gloves for us to wear, but we all forgot to use them.  Thankfully the paint eventually wears off.
 Jonny made this cool shirt.  We all had so much fun.  Darren and Keaton were going to come but ended up not being able to make it.  I'm thinking this Fall Party will be an annual event from now on.  I loved being with all my family for an afternoon of fun and visiting.
