new years children’s interview

A few years ago, I saw a wonderfully fun post idea from Emmy. Around the first of the year she would ask her children a few questions! Then, she would share those answers in comparison to the previous years. While I cannot find Carson’s answers from the previous years, I thought it would be fun to join along again. After all, it is a rather cute idea!

happy new year

must watch halloween movies

Can you believe that the month of all things spooky is almost over? I feel like I blinked and October was almost at an end. This month flew by. Did it for you as well?

Halloween always has spelled two things: endless amounts of stove-popped popcorn and every-night-is-movie-night. Not to mention, I have a ton of Halloween-theme goodies for the kids to try. This year, since Carson is still on the young side, we will be sticking with family-friendly Halloween movies. After all, I don’t need him to be afraid of the dark… again.
