A Guatacular Halloween

31 Oct

I know they say that time goes by fast but this week … this week Halloween managed to slow things down as I felt each hour and each minute during the jam-packed Fall festivity sessions.

We started on the farm ...

We came home from the farm inspired to create something amazing with our own pumpkins, but since we're not great artists we baked ours and came up with these chocolate chip pumpkin cookies. I had six during the test-tasting process.

Then came Halloween Eve and the Big Day itself where we spent our time carving pumpkins, trick-or-treating and watching Linus hope for the Great Pumpkin's arrival. A Guatacular week where time stood still and Hershey bars rained down on the Guats.

    I love the Dia de los Muertos pumpkin, so cool! I love how you make everything so special for your kids..you’re a rock star mom.

      Thanks bud 🙂 I thought that was really cool, I always love the make up on people. I can never do stuff like that on myself, but I totally appreciate it when I see the ladies out there. So when I saw this pumpkin I was like rock on artist! And thanks for that pat on the back, as a parent I totally appreciate that. Sometimes I feel like I keep trying but I’m never gonna get there, but I empty the tank on the way there whether I make it or not, I always try to make the moments count … just hope they’ll remember when they get bigger. Hope you’re doing good bud. 🙂

        Oh, they’re gonna remember alright. They’re gonna do the same things, because mama taught them what it meant. Be well Cali.

      It was super fun, but I was super exhausted after all that, but it pays off in the end when they go to sleep and say how awesome the day was … hopefully they’ll remember when they’re older 🙂 Good to hear from you bud 🙂

    The pumpkin art is fabulous! People are so creative. The Star Wars pumpkins are fun. May all the chocolate be with you. 🙂

      I would have totally had Pinterest failure! But overall we had such a good experience. I. Hoping my kids remember the kind of stuff we do when their older, the way I remember my adventures with my Dad.
