Halloween-y Stuff

Today has been busy, and in the best way possible.  We’ve been blissfully busy this week which was filled with some vacation time, nesting time and more nesting time.  Hector has had some wonderful feedback on some life changing things so thank you GOD.  Some of our life will be back to normal sooner rather than later.  I can finally breathe (well sorta, I’m a bit crowded in the lungs area). It is amazing what faith does to you, how family and friends comfort and encourage and send positive vibes your way.  They make such a difference.

We love Halloween in this house.  I love to decorate, I love to carve pumpkins, toast pumpkin seeds and spend time with friends and family in fun costumes.  Although this year will be low key, or CRAZY because of a new baby. I’ve done a bit o’decorating and some thrifty Michaels shopping for our annual pumpkin carving/painting weekend… 60% off fallish sprigs gave me this fantastic inspiration:

It now looks lovely on our front door:

All for a whopping SIX dollars!  Those pretty colorful leaves are leftovers from a beautiful bouquet my best friend sent me, I’m so happy they get to happy greet people at my front door for the season.  Like I said, I’ve been nesting like crazy, I want just everything to be perfect everywhere and today – it was!  We had our nephew and fam over for some pumpkin decorating:

I’d say they were happily entertained for a whole 10 minutes, then chased each other around the house for several hours.  Evan crashed in his high chair about 30 minutes after Jay and fam left and I’m pretty sure he is out for the night ❤ – He had such a great time, it is awesome watching them together, Evan is 2, Jay is 6 and they play really well together makes me super happy that my little dudes will soon be able to entertain eachother and never be lonely ❤

Here’s our damage for the day:

I’m off to clean out another closet, I’m purging and detoxifying – I’m also getting braxton hicks like crazy (and heartburn!!! omg. never ever ever have I had anything like this before)!  Maybe baby will be here before 10/29 ❤
