The first day of October we spent the morning at Navy Pier in Chicago - but that is a post for another time. So here we are midway through the month and I am happy to say the pace has slowed a little bit.
Spencer spent the first weekend of October channeling his inner snowman for a fundraiser for his Players group. It was a fun event for kids to get to see some characters, do crafts, enjoy face painting and a nail salon then top the evening off with a showing of Moana on the big screen. Hailey and Ella had fun hanging out.
Earlier that day I may have done a mini Halloween photo shoot with my favorite witch.
Our budding chef was wildly successful in her first attempt at "eggy in the hole". She can now add that to her rapidly growing repertoire.
On Thursday afternoon these two had parent teacher conferences so between the elementary school and the middle school I treated them to lunch at McDonald's.
Hailey has been BIG time into making slime these past few weeks. I on the other hand could live without seeing glitter glue another day of my life.
On Saturday Trent took Hailey to see a production of Annie Jr. that was put on by special needs children and their actor mentors. I hear it was a very moving production that gave kids that most likely wouldn't be cast in any shows a venue to participate. This production was the first of its kind around here but I hear they are planning for more due to the wild success it was.
I love these quiet fall weekends. If I am in my jammies by eight o clock on a Friday or Saturday, I swear it is my favorite kind of night.
Half way through October and so much more fun yet to come. One of my favorite holidays is right around the corner!
