Foodie Friday

It goes without saying that this week fly by again! This week we saw very little sunshine so I am hoping this weekend it comes back to see us ๐Ÿ™‚


We had a quiet day at home, only going out for a bit to meet a friend and her little girl for lunch. I wish I took some photos of her and Chloe. She is so happy and smiley and adorable! It was great to see them and go out for lunch.

How playtime goes these days, Chloe wants everything A has, Avery takes it away, bugs her, Chloe gets mad and repeat ๐Ÿ˜‰

That night after Chloe was in bed we let Avery stay up late and decorated/carved pumpkins.

Best dad ever, did an Ariel pumpkin for Avery!


Yoga playground morning! Avery made a ghost that she was so proud of:


Chloe only napped an hour for her mid-day nap so she got to help me with my DIY project:


And I made her practice her crawling ๐Ÿ˜‰


I went to spin that night and got my butt kicked after not going for a couple weeks. My goal is to go weekly!


My Grandma spent the morning with us, we went to McDonalds for coffee and just visited. Nap time was spent finishing up my DIY (below) and on party prep for Avery’s party.


I made banana bread and this little one cannot even see a banana without losing it so while I baked she got her banana.


I decided to get out for a walk and it was a tad chilly – Avery hates being cold but still will not wear mitts…But we made the best of it.

Chad had a work function so my Mom joined us at Subway for supper once she was off work. Chad got home just in time for bedtime stories and that was our night.


The morning was spent watching Casper, I love that I can now share my favourite things as a kid with Avery, like watching holiday movies! Casper is probably my favourite Halloween movie up there with Practical Magic.

We all had eye appointments late morning and all passed with flying colours, Avery did so good and Chloe too!

I have been aiming to get out for at least one run a week while the weather is still good so after naps we went forย a 6km run.


We had an early supper as soon as Chad was home then headed to a local Halloween event where there was games and crafts for kids.


Onto meal planning…


Saturday – OUT

Sunday – Turkey Tacos

Monday – Grilled cheese & soup – easy for the big night!

Tuesday – Asian Garlic Noodles with shrimp – Damn Delicious

Wednesday – Greek Chicken Salad & garlic toast

Thursday –ย Chicken Noodle Casserole – Life in the Lofthouse

This weekend Chloe starts swimming lessons (which I almost forgot about!), we are going to a Halloween event out of town and that is all!

    Love the READ letters, such a great idea.

    The kids look adorable in their costumes. It seems like Halloween has been a week long here with different activities every night!

    Ahh i love your DIY project! That was a great book you chose to use for the pictures. Do you fold the pages over the letters, or cut them out exactly? I made mini letter modpodge ornaments for my nephews last Christmas with Archie comics, and I wrapped the pages around the letters because I needed both sides covered, but it was so much work and impossible to get smooth that way. I want to do READ too though!

    Sully doesn't like to wear mitts either because then he can't pick up rocks and sticks! But then he gets upset because his hands get so cold. It's a learning curve for sure haha.

      I traced them and cut them out, I did not do the edges but they are white so it looks okay I think. I used glue since I bought the wrong mod podge – fail, but since they are not being touched they should be okay without it.
      Oh man – toddlers! A says her hands are never cold even though she is miserable and freezing – and stubborn apparently ๐Ÿ˜‰
