Happy Friday!!!! Can we all just agree that holiday weeks are the best? We have been fitting all of our last-minute Halloween fun in the past few days & the girls are loving every minute. I will be the first to admit that this holiday has not always been my favorite, but since having kids, there is just something SO magical about it.
This week we had Waverly’s holiday party at dance class. Since the end of summer she has been asking to be a princess for Halloween, and since that didn’t quite go with my plan for our family costume this year, I made a deal with her that we would pick a “perfect princess dress” for her to wear the week before and then she would go along with us for the actual holiday. We went and picked one a couple weeks ago, it’s been hanging in her room ready, and then with one hour to spare before dance, she decided she didn’t like it. I could write an entire post about the wardrobe problems we have lately, the struggle is real. So a cat costume it was, paired with Avalon as a ghost, which was Waverly’s when she was one! 🙂 We have a couple more costume parties this weekend so I’m hoping she gets some wear out of it then, and of course, can’t wait to share our family costume next week!!
I also have some pictures from our trip to the farm a couple weeks back, I say it all the time, but our dream is to move to a farm one day (and shop online), so activities like these are my very favorite. Funny enough, both girls preferred shucking corn above anything else there, so I think one day they will fit in somewhere like this just fine.
Wishing you all the happiest weekend & Halloween!
TGIF! I know you all are just excited as I am that Halloween weekend is officially here. Something about it being on a Saturday this year just makes it that much more fun, right?! Also, I just realized that we are gaining an extra hour of sleep on Saturday night. Sign me up ASAP & please give both my girls the memo. 🙂
I wanted to share a few more photos from our week, we’ve been having so much fun celebrating with our most festive outfits and favorite snacks. Waverly has been full of herself and performing even more than usual (I blame all the extra sugar), and sweet little Avalon Elle is just happy to be a part of all the fun. We also had Waverly’s class party which was just about the cutest thing ever, I walked in and she was sitting there (sitting!) eating her snack at her little table. I could just tell that she was about to burst from excitement over Avalon & I being there, she was so proud to show her little sister off to all of her friends.
The picture of Waverly & her classmates lining up outside after their party cracks me up, it was clearly the end of the day and everyone had definitely had their fair share of fun. Ms. Heather, you are a saint.
I really am proud of how far Waverly has come there over the past few weeks, even though she won’t tell me much about it when I ask, I pick up a lot just by listening to her play school. The other day I walked into the room and she had all of Avalon’s headbands lined up and when I tried putting a few back, she yelled “mommy pig (my current name, her favorite show is Peppa Pig), those are my STUDENTS!”.
Lastly, since we are in celebration mode, I thought it would be the perfect time to mention Rachel’s new company, Ceremony & Fuss
! I love the idea of this, ready-made boxes for all of life’s fun occasions. I am all about giving gifts, and making them look extra special, so I really couldn’t love this more. 🙂
Wishing you all the HAPPIEST Halloween weekend!
