Happy Halloween! I am a lover of all holidays but now that we have kids they are just that much better 🙂
It was a quiet day, we had doctor appointment in the morning which went fine, then we ran a couple errands, got coffee and headed home for naps. It fell apart then when neither girl wanted to nap so instead we watched a Halloween movie – and took no photos!
Once Chad was home we had an early supper and my Mom, Avery and I headed to the craft sale. We took Avery as a treat and she did awesome! She coned us into a Sky necklace and a toy for Chloe – besides that we did not buy much!
Chloe had her first ever swim lesson and I am ashamed to say it was also her first time in the pool! I am just not brave enough to go alone with both girls yet. She did so good, and was the youngest by far in the class since it goes up to 24 months. The instructor was impressed she had never been in a pool before. Avery on the other hand was not happy she was not swimming too but we explained she has other classes right now so this is for Chloe.
After we went to Costco and got groceries, I treated Avery to ice cream since she was still not too happy about not swimming too.
After lunch and a nap for Chloe at home we left to Calgary for the evening to the Halloween event at Heritage Park. We had been years ago before kids and wanted to take Avery back.
Avery picked out her princess costume and requested her hair and makeup done.
Praticing the pricess attitude 😉
She was SO proud!
We met my brother and his girlfriend there, had supper then headed to the event.
Chloe loved the paper on the table at supper:
It was a nice evening but still cold after being out for a couple hours. Avery was very brave and even went through a haunted house with us – after she broke into a weird giddy laugh – maybe from shock? or relief?
Around 8:30pm we called it a night and headed home – Avery did come into our room just after going to bed to say she heard a ghost but we reminded her they are pretend and just silly, not scary.
I had hoped Chloe would sleep in but she was up at 6:30am!
My run was 8km on the treadmill:
We ended up going out in the late morning and Avery found this at Winners and had to use birthday money for it. At first I was not for it but we never give her any of the gift money she gets and she is obsessed with Doc McStuffins and being a play doctor,
And we treated ourselves to a joint (and very early) Christmas gift:
It will help with training for our next half, as well Chad and I shared a running watch before. I knew I wanted a rectangle looking one with a wrist heart rate monitor. GPS and that synced to my phone and after looking at options and reviews the Samsung one won!
Later I ran out to pick up a huge surprise for Avery. My dayhome lady messaged me that her daughter would sell us all the Barbie stuff for $50. A remote control Corvette, a bug, Jeep, camper, and a ton of dolls and accessories. Avery asked Santa for a pink Barbie car and a Barbie so I will be giving her some of this for Christmas – do not judge 😉
Chloe is so smiley these days!
It was such a nice day I skipped washing floors and we went for a walk so I could take Avery’s 3 year photos and Chloe’s 7 month ones. Since it was last minute their outfits were not perfect but hey that is life these days so it is perfect 😉
The rest of the day was spent getting ready for Halloween, doing laundry, editing photos and blogging.
Hope you all had a great weekend!
