HAPPY FRIDAY, friends.
And if it gets any better than a Friday, which is obviously really hard to do, happy LESS THAN ONE WEEK until Halloween. We are getting pretty holiday happy over here. 🙂
ONE: Daddies & Daughters. I mean, does it get any cuter than a dad & his daughter?! I cherish my relationship with Waverly Maye & just know we will be BFs forever, but I can’t help but get all sappy over my hubby & his girl.
Those two (& the dog) are just too adorable for my ever-emotional mommy heart. Waverly LOVES her daddy to the moon, without a doubt, & I just know she is going to be as close to him as I am to my own dad.
Because I don’t want to be left out, I just have to have a moment for me & my mini, too. I clearly can’t do badass things like ride a skateboad with her like he can, but oh I love her so!
TWO: Soup & Pumpkin Carving Night. Last weekend, we hosted a Halloween-themed dinner for friends. We made the yummiest chicken & vegetable soup and halloween cupcakes for dessert. And of course, we served adult beverages in the most festive of ways.
THREE: Halloween Pasta. Speaking of festive foods, I picked up a couple packages of this halloween-shaped pasta last month at TJ Maxx, and have had the best time making it for Waverly Maye this week. I totally get that she sees no difference in this pasta & her normal dinners, but it’s the thought that counts, right?! I also came across pumpkin-shaped tortilla chips & skeleton-shaped cheese puffs at Bed, Bath & Beyond and am so excited to add some fun into snack time next week!
FOUR: Radio Flyer Wagon. My mother-in-law passed down this wagon to us, and it is just the most fun! Waverly loves her wagon rides, almost as much as she loves pushing the wagon herself.
I plan to use this for our first official trick-or-treating adventure next week & obviously for lots of family walks this fall. It has enough room to even bring the 1.2 million essentials we need for traveling with a toddler AND to fit more than one child … one day. 🙂
FIVE: It’s a weekend full of Halloween festivities for us, including a kids costume party tonight at our kids gym, a day at the “boo” zoo tomorrow, & delivering some special holiday treats for friends & family.
Here is to the holidays!
We hope that everyone has a festive, FUN, & safe weekend! I am getting so excited to see Waverly Maye in her costume, and to see what all of your little ones will be wearing, too! Am I the only one who has been working on my daughter’s costume since August but haven’t yet put one thought into what I will be wearing?
