Halloween 2014

November 3, 2014

Hey there!  Hope you had a great Halloween!  Our weekend was a fun one.  We kicked off the Halloween festivities on Thursday night with a little pumpkin carving:

Lila loved them.  Smile 

On Friday, Lila got to dress up for school.  Can you guess what she decided to go as?

Was there ever any question, really?  Winking smile 

The kids got to trick or treat around the school and then had a party.

After a long nap (thank God), we headed over to our friends’ house to do some trick or treating around the neighborhood.

The kids REALLY got into knocking on the door, and Lila loved yelling “Trick or Treat!”  She kept saying “I do it ALL by myself!”  Guess that independent streak has kicked in.

For the party, I brought a Halloween version of five layer dip with guac, black beans, salsa, greek yogurt (instead of sour cream), and cheese, topped off with a black olive jack o lantern face:

Pretty cute!

Aaaaaaand now I need to do a juice cleanse until Thanksgiving. 

I kid, of course, but seriously—I’m trying to cut back until the next holiday rolls around.  We’ve been indulging a bit too much lately—as in, so much that my jeans are tight.  Anybody have any November health goals out there?  I’ve been lacking in motivation lately…

Have a good Monday!

    That dip looks great! Glad the peanut had a good time trick or treating. Kay didn’t want to go- she only wanted to hand out candy to the “kids”.

    Uhhhh YES! I’ve been indulging like it’s my job and it’s definitely showing. November = eat healthy (3 Thanksgiving celebrations excluded). I have my 10 year HS reunion on the Saturday after Turkey Day… so I want to look good!!!!
