Okay. I decided to hit the last few main events of 2017. Baby’s first Halloween, Thanksgiving AND Christmas, Austin’s big 30…Just can’t bring myself to sweep them under the rug without mention haha. Prepare for a nice big picture dump – then on to 2018 happenings.
So Halloween. Scarlett is OBSESSED with Halloween. She had our entire family’s costumes picked out over six months before, like I’m talking March. I didn’t think her idea would stick when she told me (in March), “I be wonder woman, brudder be batman, dad be spiderman, and you be umm…captain america.” But it did! She never waivered from her plan haha. [She may however break her record this year…a couple weeks ago while Austin was taking the Christmas lights off the house she said, “Mom when it’s Halloween I gonna be Twilight Sparkle! And you can be Applejack, Ewwis be Spike, and Dad will be….(covers her mouth giggling) Pinkie Pie!” When Austin came in she couldn’t contain herself as she told him haha. She thought it was pretty hilarious. Austin jokingly told her that he wanted to be Rainbow Dash instead, and that night as I was laying next to her putting her to bed, she randomly and in the most serious and thoughtful way says, “Mom, I think dad would really like to be Rainbow Dash instead of Pinkie Pie for Halloween.” Cracked me up. So who knows! We may just be a herd of ponies come Halloween this year. Unless she becomes obsessed with something else before then, whiiich is pretty likely haha.]
To kick off the day Scarlett had preschool. Kaitlin and I signed up to bring the snacks for their little party that day – thank you pinterest for helping us make it festive. Miss Cindy requested that we keep it on the healthy side, hence the lack of sugary treats I was itchin’ to give those cute three year olds. Probably for the best haha.
After Scarlett got home, we had yet to get around to carving our pumpkins so we thought we better tackle that. Better late than never! Austin had the day off work thankfully and whipped out a Batman pumpkin per Scarlett’s request. She’s still a little grossed out by the pumpkin guts but was slightly more involved this year haha.
^Painting is the way to go.
That evening we went over to Kaitlin and Abe’s for dinner and trick or treating. Scarlett had been asking alllll day if it was time to go yet. So much build up to this day and girl wanted to get to it! I loved how excited she was.
Living her dream.
(Side note: Scarlett just asked me today (it’s now February) if it was Halloween yet. And we pretend trick or treat with her toy character people almost every day. Safe to say she’ll be well seasoned come October haha.)
– HAPPY HALLOWEEN –
