Snow Days and Sick Days

We got our first light dusting of snow and the kids couldn’t have been happier about it. Ace wants to eat it all and Evie was just curious since she was way too young to remember it last year. I can’t wait to take them sledding and build a snowman and snow angels. They are already asking about our Christmas tree and about our Elf on the Shelf: Soup. Yes, his name is Soup. Ace has a mind of his own.

Evie was sent home from school sick the other day. She’s teething (4 at once, ouch) so she’s been a real peach lately. we organized some closets and danced around in pretty clothes to Shake it Off.

Hocus Pocus

This year I was looking for costumes that were cheap and warm. I didn’t have any ideas for costumes like I normally do months in advance. Instead I found Ace’s costume by chance at TJ Maxx on the cheap. Evie’s is from a consignment shop here in town. She LOVES it (read hates). I’m open to ideas for costumes for next year because, yes, I plan that far out. What can I say? I’m not ashamed of it.

On Halloween we normally hang out with our neighbors since they have two kids right around A & E’s ages. We cook up something festive and hang out around a fire and the kids that come to the house get to pick from both of our bowls of candy. Win win.
