Call me crazy, but I’m a little excited about Halloween being over because now I feel as though I can embrace all things Christmas. I love October and the start of all things fall, but the Andrews’ household will be lucky if we make it 2 more weeks without our Christmas stuff coming out. I love Halloween and I adore Thanksgiving, but Christmas is my favorite and I like to soak up the holiday season for as long as possible. I would like to say to all you people out there who hate seeing Christmas stuff on display in September, “I’m sorry.” I am the problem. I bought egg nog today.
But before I start trying to spread Christmas cheer and singing loud for all to hear (Seriously. Sorry. I can’t help myself.), let me back up and at least show you that we did celebrate Halloween.
Funny story from Halloween: We ordered Atlas’ costume over a month ago because we are awesome parents. However, we never tried it on him until 1 hour before we were getting ready to leave to go to the Halloween parade because we are stupid. It almost didn’t fit him. It was like he was rocking under armour. Valuable piece of advice –> Make your kid try their costume on before the actual holiday.
Atlas actually slept until 9:30 on Saturday morning and we were convinced he was dead because our child never sleeps past 7. I must have asked Dave 5 times, “Do you think he was kidnapped? Do you think he stopped breathing? Do you think he had an allergic reaction to the Snickers he ate last night?” We finally went in to check on him and installed his drop cam as soon as he woke up (his room is pretty much finished being decorated. Yay!). I think I may take him trick or treating every night for the rest of his baby life if it makes him sleep until 9:30. I wonder if I could get our neighbors down with that?
And then because we didn’t eat enough sugar on Friday, I made these.
Not too bad for a box mix. And then we got doughnuts this morning to eat while we cheered on the NYC marathon runners. I’m actually craving a salad if that is any indicator of just how much sugar I consumed this weekend. But I ran 6 miles today, so that has to = roughly 6 pumpkin reese’s, right?
Don’t answer that last question.
I hope you had a Happy Halloween and your week is off to a great start!
