The past week and a half have been filled with highs and lows. We received a call from the boys’ school stating that someone in one of the Kindergarten classes tested positive for Covid so for extra precautions all Kindergarteners needed to self isolate for fourteen days. So Jordan has been at home doing distance learning and Jonathan is still able to go to school if he is not sick etc. I knew this year would be challenging and it has yet to disappoint, but we are just taking it day by day and remembering to count our blessings.
So over the weekend, we made these fun spider cupcakes that the kiddos thought were so cool. Pinterest has so many cute ideas for fun ways to decorate cupcakes or other Halloween goodies. When in doubt just make cupcakes and things will start to feel better!
It was beautiful weather on Saturday so we put some more Halloween decorations out in our front yard. We normally do a haunted house on Halloween but have decided not to do it this year which we are all bummed about. We have made individual candy bags and plan on leaving them in our driveway for any trick-or-treaters that come by. Also, we plan on doing a fun scavenger hunt on Halloween day for the kiddos instead of trick or treating this year.
Sunday our nice weather came to a halt! It was so cold so we made Italian tortellini sausage soup and looked at pressed leaves that we picked earlier in the week. I think we will make bookmarks with the leaves, stay tuned, and will share later once they are complete.
We have a busy week ahead with Jordan at home doing school, Jonathan going to school, and Jordan is turning six this week! I am still in disbelief, but we have party planning to do (we are just having it at home), a scavenger hunt to make still, and last-minute Halloween decorating. All while enjoying the last week of our favorite month! I can’t believe how quickly this month went!
I hope you all are doing fun, festive things this last week of October! XO
