This year for Halloween Riley wanted to be Super Mario so I was Princess Peach. He wanted Max to be Luigi but Max really wanted to be a death knight. So both boys got to be what they each wanted. I'm glad we didn't have snow or rain and everyone had fun trick or treating. Jered took the picture below at Max's school Halloween Parade.
Well hello there! This is the place where I share my crafts, recipes, knitting and crochet projects, photos, and moments of family life in the Midwest.

Pumpkin carving is one of the best, and messiest, things about Halloween. This year both of the boys were old enough to design their pumpkin and we cut them out. Max and Riley thought the insides were super yucky and didn't really want to touch the "guts". We saved the seeds to toast in two batches, one spicy chipotle salt and one plain sea salt. Everyone's pumpkins turned out cool. I can't wait to see them lit up with candles.

On Saturday we went up to CR to celebrate our nephew's 2nd birthday. He is really in to cars and trains, so basically anything with wheels! Rowan is growing up to be such a sweet little guy with a playful additude. The boys had a great time playing with cousins and new friends. (Mom had a great time hanging out with old and new friends too!) I was super happy Riley didn't steal the cars off the the cake Clare made, and Max didn't get hurt running around with the kids. All and all a successful 2 year old birthday party.

This weekend my mom, the boys, and I went to Reiman Garden's Spirits in the Garden. The boys wore last years costumes (since we aren't quite ready with this years!) and got to pre-trick-or-treat some candy. The weather was nice and cool this time and it was fun to do some Halloween type activity before it's actually the night.

On Saturday Jered and Max went to the 2012 Cuboree at Kent State park. It was cold outside and they were glad they packed warm soup and hot chocolate for lunch. The boys built pop bottle rockets and launched them. They went fishing, but didn't catch anything. After that the cubs went inside to warm up had a matchbox vs hotwheels car race. (Max's car came in fourth!) They finished the day with archery practice.
