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

weekly highlights

Happy Friday! It’s been an extremely long week. Halloween was on Saturday of course which was wonderful but then Cordelia got sick Sunday morning, and then again Monday morning… Tuesday morning I was sick, and Bobby’s cough has come back and now he has a fever (think we waited too long to get our flu shots). Needless to say we will be having an extremely low key weekend to give us all time to recuperate!

So of course one of our big highlights was Halloween! We spent the afternoon carving pumpkins and putting out a couple decorations, and then after dinner we all got dressed up (Bobby dressed up as Raphael the Ninja Turtle, Cordelia was Cinderella, Daddy was Ezio from Assassins Creed and I was Maleficent), put our bowls of candy on the porch, and went trick-or-treating!

Cordelia caught on pretty quick and was saying ‘tick teet!!’ along with her brother, and he was so great… helping her go up and down steps and get the candy in her bag. Unfortunately it started raining and so Cordelia and I stopped pretty quick, the boys followed shortly after, and we had a lot less kids than we are used to. After Bobby checked out his haul we watched the first 30 minutes of Inside Out and the kids were asleep. It was a great day!

We lost our first pet Finn the Betta a couple weeks ago, and so our other big highlight was that daddy took Bobby to pick out a new pet on Sunday – he picked a beautiful blue and red dragonscale and aptly named him Blue Dragon. We bought him a new larger tank and we’re happy to have another beautiful betta swimming around in our living room.
