five on friday

{1} Small group. Every week we meet with other families from our church for a meal and fellowship. The kids range in age from newborn - fourish and they are starting to come up with their own little games more regularly. This age can be so isolating and we are so grateful for this time with friends.

{2} Make believe. Our kids love dressing up--Elden especially. With Halloween fast approaching costumes have been a hot topic of conversation around our house. Currently, he wants to be "a monster with purple skin and black claws and red eyes." We'll see how long that persists since every time he sees a costume at the store he wants to be that.

{3} Miss Independence. Edith has been particularly independent lately. "I do it!" is an often muttered phrase around our casa now. Don't let that fool you, though--she has been extra cuddly with me lately and I am soaking it up.

{4} Halloween. I admittedly am not super mom when it comes to doing fun little things on the non-Christmas holidays for the kids. Sure, we do Trick or Treat on Halloween and I put up a few decorations around the house. This year I'm thinking of doing a few low-key things for the kids as a fun surprise. I love this monster doughnut and I especially love the time commitment it would take! (thanks Ashley for sharing the pin with me!)

{5} Cooler weather. It is no secret I live for fall temperatures, especially when very pregnant. The cool down is a welcomed relief. Not to mention the fact that I'm really cheap and I live for having the HVAC off (cheap thrills). The weather lately has been perfect here--warm enough to play without jackets during the day but cool enough at night to snuggle up under a blanket (or, if you're Jon, wear super thick sweat pants, a sweatshirt, and pile under a sheet and two comforters while I basically lie in my underwear on top of said blankets in front of the window fan #pregnancyprobs).
