This past weekend was so much fun. We spent it with family and friends doing lots of fall things – including hosting a Halloween party and going to a 1st birthday party at a local farm. We made some special memories that I will never forget!
First up- our Halloween party! We had a great turn out and had a lot of fun decorating and preparing. We made witches brew complete with dry ice fog, a keg made out of a pumpkin, spider ice cubes, a “decorate your cup like a Jack-o-Lantern station,” and lots of fall/Halloween food like pumpkin squares and “lady fingers”- soft pretzel sticks with a sliced almond for a fingernail. Our friends also brought food and drinks. We dressed up as a family and Kevin was a football player, I was a referee, and baby Kevin was the little football! We stayed up way too late and I drank way too much wine, but the baby slept through almost all of it in our Ergo baby carrier. It was a great night!
The next day (after taking some Tylenol) we were off to our friends’ daughter’s first birthday party at Clark’s Farm! Even though Baby Kevin is still too little to really do everything the farm offered, it was still fun to walk around with him and take pictures.
Clearly he had a blast at the birthday party!
Fall is my favorite season, and it’s even more fun now that we are creating our own traditions as a family and have a baby to share these special times with. I’m really looking forward to making more sweet memories during the upcoming holiday season!
