"Ghosties" and Pumpkin Carving

We waited out the wind yesterday evening by making what Viv is calling her "Ghosty Cookies" for her preschool class party tomorrow!

Ghosts of Halloweens Past

In honor of the significant amount of time spent putting together a certain Doc McStuffins Halloween costume (with much help from Nana J!) I decided to dig up some costume photos from other years! Sadly (or maybe thankfully?) most of my childhood trick-or-treating photos are at my parents house, but I was able to dig up some funny ones!

I'm pretty sure this was Mike's fave...

Mike as Dr. House, me as Holly Golightly and our Pumpkin's first Halloween :)

Mike and I in college the year my sorority all went as flappers (Ever hand-sewed multiple flapper dresses? Only for these girls would I ever do THAT again!) and Mike as part of ICP

No description needed I hope...

A personal fave

College- stolen (er...borrowed) from the college- 80s cheerleader unis

Laura Ingalls Wilder... I may have been around 8


6th grade maybe? Shampoo and conditioner seemed super awesome at the time

5 maybe?

Indian Summer

Mike had to go cover a football game, so Viv and I played in the leaves :) What a gorgeous day! Quite different from the 33 degrees we had the other day!

Viv's turn with the camera...

Squash Soup and a Cozy Long Weekend

Thank goodness for long weekends full of doing relaxing things you love! A much needed 

Squash soup! I'm not very domestic as far as cooking goes, but I was looking at a few recipes for squash soup, ignored most of that they said and kind of made it up as I went along. It actually came out really, really well!

Lots and lots of wagon rides and puddle jumping

Family photo time!

Beaucoup amounts of cherry apple crisp (the Eastside bakery is the best!)

And everyone's favorite fall workout- stacking wood!!!! 
Oh wait, that's not fun. 
Mike is a trooper!
