Good afternoon, friends! I feel like I haven’t been around all week. I’ve just been busy with life.
Today I thought I’d just share some randomness with you.
I’ve been working a lot. Taking Jaden to school before I go to work:
We took the kids to the pumpkin farm just to walk around and see the Halloween sights.
Honestly, we just buy pumpkins at the grocery store because it’s so much cheaper but we just like to walk around the pumpkin farm. I think we’re going back to the pumpkin farm next week with my family to go on a haunted hay ride.
The kids had fun at the pumpkin farm. Jaden found a gourd that thoroughly disgusted him.
I just love his face in that picture!
Jaden checking for baby rattlers which were literally baby rattles.
Danny and I got apple cider donuts which were amazing. Even though they were delicious and I wanted more, I’m glad we only got one each because I could have easily eaten half a dozen of those delicious, fresh, apple donuts.
I’ve been working out and eating. I’ve been loving the Simply Balanced salmon from Target. I tried the chipotle bbq flavor recently. It was good but a little too spicy for my liking.
I also made roasted sweet potatoes. My sweet potatoes never seem to turn out very crispy but I read online that you can add a little bit of cornstarch to them to get them nice and crispy. Unfortunately, I added a bit too much cornstarch but I’ll know for next time to use less!
Jaden has resorted to making a dog out of a shoebox and paper because he has been dying to get a dog.
Jaden and I both have dog allergies but we’re okay with some dogs. We’re thinking about possibly getting the kids a dog for Christmas. We would like to adopt a dog from a shelter but we’re still researching hypoallergenic dogs. We would like a big dog and most hypoallergenic dogs seem on the smaller side. But we are looking into goldendoodles.
Jaden did do a really good making that dog. I was impressed. It actually stood on those paper legs and Jaden took it outside to play and everything. It only lasted about two days but it was a good two days.
Tomorrow I work during the day and then on Saturday, we’re having our annual family Halloween food and pumpkin carving contest! I can’t wait- it’s always such a fun day.
Here’s a few Halloween foods from past years:
Have a great day!
- Do you have any pets?
- Did you have a pet growing up?
- Do you carve pumpkins?
