It's the Little Things: Our Halloween Week

It's always important to me to make holiday weeks special our way, even in between all of the chaos of working full-time & you know, all of the day to day stuff we have to do in between that.  My sister-in-law & I took the kids to the boo zoo last weekend, the weather was beautiful & there was no shortage of kids running around endlessly in the spirit of the holiday.  Plus, there were bounce houses.  And that's all Waverly needs to get excited, ever.  We had the best time.


Waverly's cousin is about one year younger than her & I just love them watching them together, especially as they get older.  She loves to touch his head & give him kisses, we taught them to hold hands for the first time at the zoo & it was sweetest thing ever.  Waverly wouldn't let go (even if he wanted her to), she kept saying "come here, Jack, I show you the way".  Such a little mama.

My family is coming over this Friday for halloween night, it will be our first time trick or treating in our new house & we are so excited!  We plan to order pizza & do some sort of dessert bar, plus of course candy for the little ones.  Waverly & I got a head start with some candy bark this week, its been in the freezer (in between us snacking on it) since.  The recipe is easy, plus fun, we just melted white chocolate, spread it out on parchment paper & covered it with broken up halloween oreos, sprinkles, pretzels & candy corn.  So much fun to do together & you can make it work for any holiday or occasion!


And what kind of holiday week would it be without some festive fashion?!  Our girls Jess & Sadie sent us over the cutest halloween bow, so much fun for this week!  We paired it with this sweatshirt my mom got Waverly from the Forever 21 little girls section (similar here), just worn as a dress for a toddler!  I love that it will last forever, the best kind of a fashion find for little ones. :)
 

We will be signing off for the rest of the week, to focus on celebrating the holiday & enjoying a much needed relaxing weekend with family!  We wish you all the happiest halloween, have fun & eat LOTS of candy! XO

  6. Your little one is just too cute. And yes, I totally agree with Jessica - I too wish it was socially acceptable for me to wear a large sweatshirt as a dress to work. Can we make that happen! xoxo
