I know you are all probably tired of seeing Halloween posts, but I'm a proud mama and want to treasure these memories forever. So, I put together a Day in the life sort-of post. After all, this is G's first Halloween and Dominic's first one he can really enjoy.
This was our Halloween Monday..
(To make it legit, add in a ton of dirty diapers, a tantrum or two, and several hundred nursing sessions)
After the long weekend we had, the boys actually slept in a little bit.....6:30! Ha! Got them dressed and made some spooky bite sized pancakes in all sorts of Halloween shapes. Dominic got such a kick out it it. He really enjoyed the pumpkin.
After breakfast the boys took an extra long nap, almost 3 hours! It was heavenly! Then they got up and played and watched some spooky cartoons, and a new movie I bought them, Hoodwinked.
Lunch was around noon. I made some ghostly peanut butter & jelly sandwiches, paired with some fruit snacks and a banana. They are only little once, so why not have some fun, right?! Gotta love our fancy plates! : )
After lunch. We had a monster mash dance party. I think I scared Giovanni half to death. lol. Dominic enjoyed the ghostbuster song best. It was nap time again, and then it was time for the big event, TRICK-OR-TREATING! The whole time getting ready, Dominic kept saying, "Let's go! Let's go already!" He's a man who knows what he wants. He he he.
After much back and forth debate as too what we were going to do with Halloween, with Dominic getting over an ear infection..we decided to let him go out after all, but only to a few houses in my parent's neighborhood.
So we spent dinner with my family, munching on some yummy hot dogs and chili. Took several hundred pictures with all the grandkids...
The ham of the family! ;)
As soon as he saw paw-paw he crawl-hopped right to him!
....or at least tried too...
...we then left to go over to Tony's mom's house to let her see the kids in their costumes
Now that Halloween is over, whose ready for Christmas?! Only 53 more days!! Now, don't worry I haven't forgotten Thanksgiving comes first. I'm just excited to pack away the Halloween decor and start decorating for Christmas!
