Hello friends :)
I hope you all had a fantastic Saturday and that now you are relaxing and taking it easy, as I am.
We've been a little busy today, getting the kid's costumes ready and making sure that everything is in order for Halloween.
We also just ended a week of Fall Break, taking it easy, resting and days with no schedules and rushing here or there.
But I think I'm ready for school again, and getting back into the swing of things next week :)
We started the day with some hot coffee and cinnamon raising bagels....sitting around the kitchen table just chatting. It feels great to share breakfast on the weekends when my husband is home with us in the mornings.
Then hubby and I set to work on Nic's costume. We had to figure out how to make this thing from scratch, how to get it to look right etc. It was a little stressful at times because what he wants to be is a Creeper from the game Minecraft, and there are no costumes out there for it, it's not even very well known, at least I don't think so.
See what I mean? It looks pretty easy to make, but goodness LOL
Anyway, it's mostly done, we just have to paint it etc to give it that patterned green,white look.
Then we set to work on the Halloween decorations outside, we had put some up earlier this week but it was nowhere near done.
Little Miss Lola also tried out her costume. It's big on her so I have to alter it this week to make it fit perfect, but I tell you, I have not laughed so hard in a while as when she started walking around dressed like that LOL
I just can't.....just looking at her sends me into fits of giggles.
Just a few pics of the outside.
We also have pumpkins to carve tomorrow afternoon, and we always have such a great time as a family doing it :)
Not to mention all the yummy pumpkin I have for cooking and the seeds for roasting.
I really do love this time of year.
Tomorrow I have a review of some amazing soy candles which I think you're going to love, the scent is just out of this world, even my husband is impressed. But more on that later.
I think I'm going to sit down with my crochet and a cup of tea and maybe watch a movie with the family.
Have track tomorrow morning and I'm looking forward to running with my hubby.
Hugs to you all and a restful night's sleep.
