Halloween 2020 well… It’s probably the scariest year it’s every been. Honestly I thought dressing up as 2020 would be the scariest costume yet. However we like to keep things light in this house and we have had a lot of fun with Otto’s Halloween costumes over the years. We had a few options for […]
We hope you have a Finger Licking Good Halloween from our family to yours! When trying to decide what Otto should be for halloween it was a tough call. He is in to so many things! Would he be Uncle Sam? A flag? Mickey Mouse? We finally decided since chicken is one of the only […]
i know you’re “supposed to” limit the amount of photos each post has but guys… i couldn’t even begin to choose top 3, top 5, so i just posted all my favorites. i can’t believe we are on a year of seconds! second halloween, thanksgiving etc. it blows my mind and i think i weep […]
i have never been one to “celebrate” halloween. it’s just not one of my favorites. me? i’m more of a thanksgiving and fourth of july kind of girl. mostly because they surround my two favorite kinds of pie. cherry pie and pumpkin pie. that and i just love the nostalgia that surrounds them. i don’t […]
Last year we celebrated NYE with our friends and their children at the Leland Lodge. It was amazing. We played card games, we went sledding, we did a little wine tasting. It was really a magical time and something we were hoping to turn into a yearly tradition. I’m hopeful in 2021 we’ll be celebrating […]
Otto and I finally got back to Meijer Gardens for the first time since March. I think one of the things that amazes me most about this pandemic is how quickly we forget and/or adapt to the situation. I don’t think that is a good thing? Maybe parts of it are. I know we shouldn’t […]
Can I be honest with you why this post is a little late? It’s because the third anniversary of Otto’s open heart surgery slipped our minds until the day before. We realized it the night of the 3rd that the coming day would make three years since Otto had his open heart surgery. The fact […]
Every Wednesday Otto and I visit the farmers market before taking him to school and we load up on pumpkins for the front porch. I finally had a chance to arrange them a few days ago on the porch and Otto was very adamant that the porch needs to be spooky. It’s so fun having […]
This morning at about 4am Otto leaned over to me in his sleep and said in a whispered voice “it’s time to play hide and seek”. Without missing a beat I responded “no it’s not” and he rolled back over still asleep and continued on. You want to talk about something that will jolt you […]
We have had so much fun soaking in all of the fun fall activities during the beautiful fall weather here in Michigan. We have been trying to do one fall activity each weekend together and it has been so much fun watching otto explore and experience all that Michigan has to offer. We have had […]
