Good morning friends! I had this really great post planned for last night, but after a long day yesterday I got hit with some sort of sickness. I was down for the count. Seriously DOWN.
I couldn’t change my clothes. I couldn’t eat dinner. I just laid in bed feeling miserable with a fever and the chills. Lovely.
This morning is not much better. I’m not even craving my favorite morning mocha. That is NEVER a good sign. Something is definitely off.
It may have something to do with my last training run for our race for Amelia yesterday morning that did me in. I think it’s almost time to officially retire the stroller from racing.
Enough about me.
On to Halloween……
Check out how cool I used to be.
Do you SEE that carrot? I wonder if it even crossed Mom’s mind to make the string a little shorter.
Now THIS chicken costume I found at a garage sale a couple years ago. The first time it appeared was October 2009 when I was sick and pregnant and Andrew wanted to party it up at a Halloween party.
No, I didn’t go to the party in my pajamas. I DID drop Andrew off though and went home and crawled in bed.
Last year for the boys’ first Halloween I searched everywhere for some sock monkey costumes. They were sold out everywhere. I know, I was surprised too.
I found some chick costumes at the last minute and we made it a family affair.
This year we got lucky (well, maybe not Andrew) and the chicken costumes still fit.
We tried to get some good pictures yesterday.
I wanted to get the perfect one, but we decided to call it a day.
And since Kitty wasn’t allowed outside for the fun we dressed him up inside.
I tried to get him to wear that egg carton because, well, THAT would be funny. After a couple attempts though I gave up. It was a little too snug.
The boys also did some carving last night. I stayed away. It’s just not my thing.
Hope everyone has a wonderful and safe Halloween!
I’m just hoping I make it through the day of teaching 5 classes. Ugh.
I saved the pumpkin seeds and want to try roasting them for the first time. I’ve seen so many recipes out thereon other blogs, but if anyone has some easy instructions and their favorite recipe I have to try let me know.
