Cooking with mommy

One of my favorite relaxation activites is to curl up on the couch and watch cooking shows, and now Chloe loves to watch them with me. She asked me if we could make the food from the show we were watching which happened to be churro's, I decided we'd better do something with a smaller level of difficulty, and so today we made fruit pizza. Chloe mostly eats the ingredients and licks the bowls and spoons, but it's good times for mother and daughter!

Trick or Treat!

We had so much fun on Halloween! From the moment Chloe woke up she was carrying around her pumpkin bucket and wearing her red sparkly Dorothy shoes. She didn't understand why we couldn't trick or treat in the morning. Cavan wore his costume and hat and never tried to take it off. He learned to say "trick or treat" very quickly :)

The cute little cell phone boy is Cavan and Chloe's best buddy Noah, as you can imagine the kids got lots of compliments on their costumes!
