I am back. It has been almost a month since I posted anything. October ended up being a crazy month filled with lice, the flu, food poisoning, birthday parties and Halloween. And then my husband and I took off for a week in Jamaica alone for some MUCH needed R&R.
So hang on, there are a LOT of pictures.
so first off little man had a birthday party. This year was the first party where he wanted ONLY a couple of friends and NO GIRLS ALLOWED. So we sent Little Miss to her cousin’s and did another one of our simple birthday parties with colourful accents.
(um, yeah, he turned NINE… not sure how I feel about that yet!)
I love how not matter how large the sofa is, (and even when it is tidier than this) that they choose to sit RIGHT next to each other.
I love swimming lessons. And goggles? Hilarious.
The photo manipulation I did was from a few years ago but was fun enough to bring back. This is MY version of a Halloween costume.
And these are the kids’ Halloween costumes. Again like previous years, super simple, cheap and found a lot at the dollar store.
In the middle of all the chaos, I decided I needed a pick me up. So I chopped my hair off. It worked.
Then we ran away somewhere warm (Jamaica) and had a great time. We stayed at Secrets St. James in Montego Bay and would recommend it to anyone.
Now of course even though a vacation is nice and we had a blast, it is always nice to get home. And it is EVEN nicer to get back to your own bed.
When we got home we found this letter from Little Man asking for another chance at having Minecraft. We are now working with a reward chart that will allow him to earn it back and only in these guidelines when he gets there.
Love it when they parent themselves.
Anyway, happy to be home. NOT loving the cold. But I making a list of projects to do around the house to keep me motivated and energized and I am hoping that they will start this week.
