I woke up to this…


Actually it wasn’t as bad as it looked. We washed everything during Saturday’s snow/sleet storm. All I had to do was fold the towels which I finished right before Little Guy decided to join me.

He helped me put the towels away and then we had a little fun in the kitchen. Pumpkin Pancakes!

Time to put the rest of the laundry away. Normally our downfall is not getting this done before the end of the weekend. Then we end up living out of piles.

Not cool.

While we organized, someone worked on their crawling skills.

Once everything was away I made The Husband his heart attack on a plate breakfast and I had some grapefruit.

After the late breakfast we cleaned up.

Here’s Little Guy showing off the clean mud room. One of his chores this weekend.

Time for a snack!

The boys were having fun with the Legos…

So I decided to go for a quick run. It’s gotten so cold I needed gear. :(

When I came back it was time for lunch. Little Guy and I finished some homemade pizza and I paired it with an experimental Red Pepper Soup with Spaghetti Squash.

Expect a recipe on GreenLiteBites soon. I want to make it one more time to get it just right.

Time to ready The Mystery Machine for the community parade.

Mystery Inc. was ready to make an appearance!

Don’t we rock! This was our first theme Halloween and I’m loving it! SO much fun!

It ended up being a gorgeous day for a walk.

When we got home Little Guy played a little Jack O’ Lantern drums while I made dinner.

I tried something new and it ROCKED! Hope to do a produce pick soon!

I also made meatloaf (trying to perfect my recipe,) creamy mashed potatoes, and roasted Brussels sprouts.

After dinner a little Goosebumps. :)

Another great day. Now… if I can only get a handle on the nighttime snacking thing. It’s not even Halloween yet and I’m binging on chocolate. Ugh.

    Love the theme costumes! I am surprised your husband’s pumpkin isnt a finger.


    October 30, 2011

    Oh your costumes are SOOO GOOD!! You all looked wonderful :) I noticed that your husband still managed to get his usual “finger” in on the breakfast shot. No wonder he had that mischievous smile :) Hilarious.


    October 31, 2011

    Dude, I only ask because not knowing is KILLING me, not out of ANY kind of judgment – is your husband drinking soda for breakfast?

    Happy Halloween!!!


    October 31, 2011

    YES! He comes from a family of soda drinkers. DRIVES ME NUTS!

    Oh my goodness! Those are the cutest costumes ever! You had to have gotten some applause over that. I give applause to the hubbs for the one finger salute he slid in there at breakfast. ;)


    October 31, 2011

    I will be waiting to see the red pepper soup recipe. Now that winter is settling in, I am making more soups and stews. Kabocha squash is excellent! OMG I love the color and the taste. So orange. I mixed it with couscous and spices. It was a bear to cut up though. Share ideas how you chopped yours.


    October 31, 2011

    You & the family costumes were FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have a 9 year old obsessed with Lego’s but we have no way near the collection you guys have so I better not let him see the Lego photo’s, lol. What is that big building? Also, I think you have said before they were playing a lego game, What would that be? Trying to get some christmas ideas!


    November 21, 2011

    The the buildings are part of a collector series that my husband started. They are really for adults. Here’s a link…

    LEGO® Creator Pet Shop 10218

    The games is called heroica. We LOVE it. There are 5, I think, and they can interconnect but you can play with just 1. We have this one….

    Hope that helps!
