The Halloween WOD

Geez, Halloween seems like a distant memory, but I wanted to record the fun we had at Crossfit Rubicon celebrating Halloween. This was the gym’s second annual Halloween WOD and Paleo Potluck. Last year, we had a great time and I had fun creating clever costumes:  Lady Gaga (in her meat dress) for me,...

Happy Cand-o-leen!

Halloween was indeed a happy and sugar-filled affair. It started with Adam’s preschool celebration.  Can you guess what he is? If you guessed the cutest little Ewok, this side of Endor, you would be correct!   And this was probably the easiest “homemade” costume I have ever done.  We reused a bear costume and I...

Snowy Pumpkin Party

What a crazy weather weekend!   Snow in October was definitely a first for us. We spent the day snuggled up inside/frantically cleaning to make the house presentable for the pumpkin carving party planned for the evening. This is our second year hosting a carving party, so I guess it has become a tradition. The...

Halloween/Fall Decor

We really don’t play up Halloween at our house and we certainly don’t have our yard decorated with bones and skeletons and scary things.  I’m fine with that, but this year, Wendy & Sam decided we were sadly lacking in festive decor.   So they added a few of their own special touches and I...

Halloween 2010

We had another fun Halloween.  I’m often tempted to drag our family to every fun (free) activity that comes our way, but I’m proud to say, we kept things pretty low key this year.   We passed on a couple of activities and focused on the neighborhood party and ToTing afterwards. Here’s the gang before...

Potluck Pumpkin Carving

We don’t make a huge deal out of Halloween, but I thought it would be fun to invite some friends over for a low key evening of carving pumpkins and hanging out.   I have a tendency to go overboard when I host parties so I tried this time to keep things simple.  The guestlist...

Halloween is almost upon us, and it seems every class in school is having a Halloween party today.  I signed up to bring a treat, but wanted to think of something somewhat healthy, knowing that the kids will be overloaded with sugar during the next 72 hours. I searched the web for things that...

What a boring title! I tried to be creative, but nothing came to me.  Anywho, this is my recap of our weekend of fun.  Be forewarned, this post is picture-laden. The fun started on Thursday.  It was “Dress-up Day” at Mainly Music and so cute to see all the little kids dressed up in...
