Remember Fun Friday? Pfft. Wacky Wednesday just kicked it’s bootay.
Welcome to my world. It was a world full of mourning, until today, that Halloween was over. And so, we declared every day henceforth to be worthy of dressing up.
The lion returns, people.
It snuck up on Daddy for a bear hug.
And because the costume is at least one size too small and gives a permawedgie when worn, he clambered out of it like a greased pig.
Since we were down in the basement anyway, visiting the world headquarters of Invisible Window and it’s CFO/CTO/CEO, the boys decided to hang out a while.
We lost the lion to the kennel for a few. He loves playing in that thing.
Please don’t zoom in on that picture. He’s covered in gross dog hair. Bleh.
Wacky Wednesday had a surprise hit. We took apart a LoveSac Rocker and behold…Fort Pantier.
After building the awesome thing, I was not welcome. No Moms allowed. Especially no girls allowed.
I retreated and made them lunch.
They ate Elmo.
Pizzas are gluten-free tortillas with spaghetti sauce, oregano, garlic, and grated Dubliner cheese. Super easy, which is good, because the 6YO ate six of them. Gracious.
They were still hungry afterwards. I made a smoothie and used this fabulous thing to make popsicles out of that smoothie in seven minutes. Yes, you read that correctly. Isn’t that awesome?
Also awesome? That it was a warm enough day to be outside without shoes on for a while, eating popsicles.
For the first time since we’ve lived in our home, we raked leaves. Not many, but enough for now.
Todd Helton The Cat = not a fan of the grass broom.
When there was a big enough pile, things started happening.
Super funny things.
Wacky Wednesday things.
And while the The ‘Fish tested his throwing arm…
Only to discover that he could huck a ball with the Chuck-It completely over the house, the little guy disappeared into the belly of the garage and came out like this.
Lid change. He changes helmets like most people change shoes.
I become a homebody when the air turns cooler and forget how much my boys need to be outside. Today, however? I’m just gonna lay it out flat.
I haven’t had this much fun with the boys in a while.
Thank you, Lord, for this day.
On the eve of Thanskgiving, I am reminded of family. I am reminded of love and the smells of home, the embrace of my Mom, kisses from my Dad, and the laughter of my sisters.
I am filled with it. With what is far away and what is right here. And it’s so good. It’s so very, very good.
Happy Turkey Eve. Hoping tomorrow fills you up in every way.
