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.
side note: this is our first ever family portrait and everyone is looking at the camera!! success!
