Hello, friends. I'm back from a lovely and restful vacation. We spent a couple of…
Well. That was a weekend full of Halloween shenanigans and then some! Wow.
First, there was our Kiwanis Halloween party. I was a scarecrow and Dale was a farmer. It was fun playing with makeup and creating that look.
On Friday I took Jess and Jack to the doctor for a follow up appointment for him. All is well and this wraps up his special care for being a wee bit early.
We went out to breakfast to celebrate! I had hash bombs, which are basically deep fried balls of corned beef hash, topped with poached eggs. Oh my goodness. It was delicious and a huge serving and I didn’t need to eat again until dinner time.
Jack was utterly thrilled by his first breakfast outing, as you can see.
Friday evening involved the usual drinks and snacks. We caught up on tv and sleep and it was heavenly.
Saturday morning was on the chilly side and the heat came on for a bit. Mason appreciated it, as you can see by this picture of him huddled up to the kitchen radiator. I know some people are funny about when they turn on the heat but my thermostat is automatic and when it drops below 65 in my house it comes on. I like it that way!
During the day I volunteered for a bit with Kiwanis, collecting donations for our Field of Flags. And in the evening we went to Tom and Anne’s Halloween party. Sean joined us and went as a wizard, a great compliment to Dale’s knight garb.
I was an elven queen, sporting the same things I’ve been wearing to the renaissance faire the last few weeks. Super easy but again, fun to play with makeup and create a different look.
Sunday was a lazy day of hanging around at home, knitting and watching football.
In the evening we headed to Jessica’s to have some dinner and carve some pumpkins. And to visit Super Baby, of course. Here he is with Auntie Hannah and yes, her hair is green for Halloween.
Every baby needs a cape!
I came home and wrote this blog post and went to bed. I’d call that a successful weekend.
