Time to share last year’s family Halloween costumes!!!  Look how LITTLE Baby boy looks!  EVERYONE for that matter, I think they’ve all grown a few inches since last year. It’s amazing how fast it all changes.

The Lorax Family Costumes – Onsler (greedy, non-greedy), Swami Swan and Humming Fish

I love Halloween!  I love all holiday’s, but my favorites are Christmas and Halloween!  Last year we did the grab bag costumes since I had just given birth to Baby Boy, but THIS year I wanted to go back to our Family costume themes!  We actually went through a few different costume themes before settling on The Lorax!!!

pumpkin crochet hat

People often ask how I get so much done with 4 (now 5- EEK!) kids. Esp all my cooking and baking from scratch. My first answer? I don’t sleep much… I do my crafting, blogging and computer time from 8pm (when the kids go to bed) and 2 am (or often 4 am) when I finally go to bed. The pregnancy and now newborn/nursing time period kind of puts a kink in that, but still- not much sleep. I kind of hate sleep, it’s such a waste of time!!!

My second answer is my kids love to work/play/cook/craft WITH me. The only thing I don’t let them do WITH me is cakes for clients… This year I taught The Reader how to crochet! She’s made a few small things, but when she saw this pumpkin crochet hat I pinned she asked if she could make it herself!

Pumpkin Pie milkshake or ice cream

I know, I know…  Pumpkin recipes are SOOOO last month.  Honestly I made this 2 weeks ago, Really I did.  But I lost my blogging mojo over the last few weeks and now that I’m back in the game I’m finally getting around to posting it.  So it’s okay, see, since I MADE it before Thanksgiving it still works.
