 Halloween 2017

Hope you all had a great night trick or treating. We had such a good time even though it was a bit chilly and we got a little rain towards the end of the night. 

Vida dressed up as Merida, Leo was one of the cute bears and I was Queen Elinor. I was so thankful for all the extra layers to keep us nice and warm. My crown was made from cardboard and you can make your own with this Template

I also did a little photoshoot of the kids in a forest in Wiesbaden earlier that day. I think they turned out so good!!  We even had the little horse and it matched perfectly with Angus from the movie. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Pumpkin Carving 

After 3 Trunk o' Treat events,costume  bowling with pizza and one fun Halloween party, we finally had time to squeeze in pumpkin carving together.

 Vida gets so grossed out by the guts each year, but she manages to push through and do some of the dirty work. Her face in these photos crack me up. 

 

Meet Jack and a cat. 


I love love baked pumpkin seeds sprinkled with a little pink salt and a little garlic powder. What's your favorite way to season pumpkin seeds? Pinterest has so many delicious recipes. 

Have a great weekend everyone!! Just a few more days until Halloween. I'm sure you are all as excited as we are.

Happy Fall! 

Fall is here!! The temps have cooled down a lot, the leaves are changing and we enjoyed the local Apple Fest in Mainz, Germany today. Can't believe this is our third year attending and with two kids this time. Here are a few photos of our day at the Appel Happel Fest. 


What are your plans for this Fall/ Autumn? I have to start working on Halloween costumes soon. 

Have a great weekend.

Vida's 4th Birthday




I am such a bad mom!! I forgot to post about Vida's 4th birthday party on here. It was such a hectic couple of months too. We had her party early, we moved to another house the following week, we took a quick trip to Holland, my parents came to visit from Canada and we took a trip to Spain together. I had like zero time to upload photos from my camera to my laptop. Oops! So glad all that is over and we are back to normal. 

Vida wanted a mix of stuff for her 4th Birthday. She could not decide on a theme, so I decided to use all her favorite things. I let her decorate the cart with anything she wanted and I added the little signs. 
Guests took home a party bag full of her favorite things which included, Kinder Surprise Egg, Play-Doh, stickers, Nemo tattoos,bubbles and an organic lollipop. She had so much fun putting them together and it was such a big help for me. 

Still can't believe I have a 4 year old. Kids grow way too fast.
