A late night prepping jars for the dry ingredients to be added later. Twenty-seven had to be made and glitter got everywhere!
We had an insane weekend so this morning Grayson asked if we could just stay home and play in our jammies all day! Sometimes I don't realize how much our busy lifestyle affects the kids until they begin asking to just stay home. So, that's what we did. All day!
We had breakfast with hot apple cider in Christmas mugs (this was the first time I have given them breakable mugs to drink from and the pictures I got are priceless. Some of my new favorites!)
Grayson made his own breakfast
Later this afternoon, Grayson finally asked to make his pirate pumpkin that we have been asking him to make since October. Now that Halloween is over, he's ready to make it!
We had a great day at home. Lots of good, quality mommy time was had today. We played every single board game we own, played baseball outside, took naps, did our pumpkin, and was reminded that we often need to slow down a bit to really enjoy each other's company!
The way Neylan eats from a bowl drives.me.crazy!! He refuses to use a spoon, although fully capable! This morning he asked to put socks on his hands and then wanted to eat breakfast. And then the best thing happened!! He used his spoon to eat his entire bowl of cereal!! He must not have wanted to get his socks wet!
Yesterday we were "booed" by a neighbor. So, today I had to keep the "booing" going by giving little goody bags to two other neighbors. We've never been in such a family-friendly, fun neighborhood before. We are LOVING it here!
In our boo package yesterday were 2 cans of silly string. Adam thought it would be a great idea to teach the boys how to use it- on me!!
Although it was a bit chilly, we ventured back to the zoo today for Boo at the Zoo. These very thick costumes were perfect for the day and the boys had a great time trick-or-treating. Since it was colder, there were VERY few animals out today, but the boys didn't seem to mind since they were on a mission to collect candy!
Eeyore and Tigger found their friend, Owl
Eeyore loves candy!
The weather became VERY cold today, but that didn't stop us from getting out for some fresh air. Nana and Granddad arrived on Wednesday for a short visit, so we decided to take them to the school playground in our neighborhood. The boys rode their bikes there because it's so close!
