We have been having so much fun with Fall activities. And today I woke up to a cold, dark morning and realized that it really is Fall – I’m not just being excited too soon like I usually am for seasons and holidays.
This week we had one of my friends over with her little boy that is just about a week older than Annabelle. Annabelle loves him and talks about him constantly which is pretty funny because they really aren’t around each other very much. They had grilled cheese sandwiches and then got to work painting pumpkins in the garage. We used painters tape to make their initials on their pumpkins, and then just let them go at it. I think this will be our standard pumpkin decorating for the next few years. Annabelle loved it and laid in bed for a half hour that night talking about her friend and paint and pumpkins.
Last night during the Royal’s game I made homemade pumpkin bars with homemade cream cheese icing. Yes, I said “homemade” twice. I had to really emphasize that because most of my baking comes from a box and a tub of icing. I was pretty proud. While I was waiting for them to cool to ice, I made some treats for Annabelle’s daycare celebration. A friend sent me this idea for a healthier treat from Pinterest. I think they turned out so cute.
Today Belle was so excited to dress in a special Halloween shirt! I have a few outfits for her so decided to start a day or two early.
She looks so big to me lately. We have been ready to switch her to her big girl bed for a while now, but I keep getting really emotional about it. Tomorrow we are ripping off the band aid and switching.Tonight will be her last night in her crib. I’m not kidding when I say that “It Won’t Be Like This For Long” came on my Pandora this morning and I definitely had to redo my makeup.
