Why Hello, Fall!

Today was one of those super-busy days that was just plain fun!

We started the morning with haircuts for both boys. Julian haaaates getting his haircut and even sitting in the police car and watching Thomas the Tank Engine is not enough to quell the tears.

He kept yelling "No short cut!" He also wanted his picture taken like this.

Afterwards we walked to a party store for Halloween decorations. They were so cute walking back to the car that I had to take a picture.

Back home, Miles asked me to surprise him with having the Halloween decorations up when he got home from school. I got the kids fed and Miles on the bus. Then, I decided to bake an oreo pudding poke cake, and texted our neighbors to see if they wanted to come over after dinner to help us eat it. I don’t know why I felt so domestic all of a sudden!

So yummy!

Once the cake was in the fridge to set, I decorated outside, which was a ton of fun. I finished that just before Miles got home and not gonna lie: it was pretty cool to hear all the preschoolers on the bus getting excited upon seeing the trees. Lol

Nothing super fancy, but it was fun and there are little glittery spiders all through the trees.

I had a few phone calls to make and ended up just ordering pizza for dinner (we always get pineapple). The kids helped me crumble up the cookie topping for the cake, then we watched a little TV till the neighbors came over.

Mark was out late at a church choir rehearsal, so after our friends left I got the kids in bed and was relaxing watching Grey’s Anatomy when Mark got home. And Scandal…do you watch that? What an ending tonight!

All in all a really great day 🙂
