2016 halloween highlights

2016 halloween highlightsNot gonna lie, totally dropped the ball on Halloween this year. We had picked up the kids costumes in early October, Bobby wanted to be a Lego Ninja guy and Cordi wanted to be Owlette from PJ Masks. After we picked them up… I completely forgot about the rest of the Halloween to-do’s, including getting myself a costume and carving pumpkins (that one up there is a stock photo, no shame).

For my costume I just used makeup I already had and went with an easy cat costume. We had a bit of a team theme at work so I added some fake blood once I got to the office, and peeled it off before I got home so the kids didn’t freak out.

If you saw my Thanksgiving highlights you’ll remember we had enough snow to build a snowman… this week we’ve had highs of 19 and minus a bit of wind, the weather was perfect for trick-or-treating. This was the first year Cordelia went out trick-or-treating for as long as Bobby, and after examining their hauls and eating a couple… they were both out like a light. 2016 halloween highlights2016 halloween highlights2016 halloween highlights2016 halloween highlights2016 halloween highlights2016 halloween highlights2016 halloween highlights2016 halloween highlights2016 halloween highlights

2016 thanksgiving highlights

thanksgiving2016-0This Thanksgiving was a bunch of firsts for us – it was the first time we had thanksgiving at home, just the 4 of us… which meant it was also the first time I made Thanksgiving dinner! It snowed that weekend so we got to go out and build our first snowman of the year too. The kids had so much fun playing in the snow, I wish winter could be as wonderful and mild as that day was.

For our Thanksgiving dinner we picked up a 9lbs turkey which I dry brined the night before, and we made it nice and easy with mashed potatoes, gravy, slow cooked carrots and green beans. Everything turned out perfectly!

Here are a few of my favourite pics from our little Thanksgiving day. ♥

cordelia turns three

cordi3bday1It’s hard to believe my littlest turned three almost a month ago. We had a nice little get together with some of our family to celebrate, and Cordi had fun opening gifts and eating cupcakes.

She’s such a wild, amazing little girl. She loves singing, dancing, chasing her big brother around, and playing with her dollies. Her favourite shows are Paw Patrol, Peppa Pig, Story Bots, and Beat Bugs – and her favourite way to watch those shows is cuddled up in bed or on the couch. Over the past few months she’s started speaking in full sentences – though ‘no’ is still her favourite word. She is Bobby’s little shadow, and he’s so sweet and patient with her (90% of the time), a little girl couldn’t ask for a better big brother. I have no idea where her crazy curly hair came from… but I am open to tips and tricks on how to tame it!
