ROAR! Can you spot two adorably fierce dinosaurs in the “wild”?
Their tails wagged when they walked. The cuteness made my eyes cross!
In full disclosure, I thought I was being such a fun Mom when I surprised the kids with their costumes one day in the car. I had bought the dinosaur costume for Cade and I picked out a wolf ears/tail set for Amelie. But Amelie really wanted the dinosaur one instead so I let her “trade” with Cade. Cade lost his sh*t! So much crying! Rightfully so because he just got his costume stolen right out from underneath him.
I learned two lessons: Cade is not a baby anymore, he has opinions!! And secondly, everything needs to be the same. I thought that was a “twin thing” but it’s a general kid rule. I’m still learning this Mom stuff…
Before we headed out to trick or treat, I set out our candy for the neighborhood kids.
It looked so cute all aglow after dusk! Let’s all be amazed by my geraniums that I planted months ago that are still going strong!
About to head out to trick or treat with friends. I love this wagon. I have put miles on this thing.
Amelie brought her bucket from McDonalds instead of the cute Halloween bag I bought her but you win some, you lose some…
The kids loved trick or treating. I wish I would have taken pictures of the entire group all dressed up. Next year! Once the sun set, all of the pictures I took turned out blurry and dark. But trust me, it was so sweet watching them. These are the moments I want to remember forever. <3
A look back:
2013 (Amelie’s first), 2014 (Pregnant with Cade), and 2015 (Cade thought this was all no fun and wanted to go home).
I can’t resist, you know?
A look back to last year and one of my favorite pictures of all time:
I love them so much!
I’m back. Do not be alarmed!
It’s been quite a month, you guys. My kids have been sick, my husband has been sick, my cross country kids have been sick and I’ve been sick. A deep throat infection plus intolerable ear pain? Check. The stomach flu? Check. A bee sting and reaction? Check. A sinus infection? Check. “Just” a cold? Check. It’s been rough.
Until now, I’ve been limping through my most favorite season of all, Fall! Let’s skip and clap instead!
Admittedly, it still feels like summer around here but I pulled out the fall decor anyway. First up, my tray filled with fall; with my go-to gold-stemmed pumpkins, a gold candle (a Christmas gift) and a new ceramic squirrel from Target. Isn’t’ she cute?
The hutch adorned with a few clearance pumpkins from last year:
and with my favorite picture of the kids ever:
And lastly, Cadey-Cade and I picked out pumpkins and spruced up the front step while Amelie was at preschool.
I couldn’t bare to take out my summer flowers just yet; the geraniums and jungle grass are still so happy! We added a few real pumpkins to our fake ones, along with mums and pansies. On our To Do list. A new front door. Before the snow flies!
I have more Halloween decorations to put up now that it’s officially October. I plan to post about those too but then again, you know me better than that. Right?
