5:30 is Okay

by Megan

Vanessa got up at 5:30 this morning. She hasn’t done that in a long time. Usually she sleeps until 7 or 8, but not this morning!

It was okay with me though. Vanessa is not usually much of a snuggler, but I got about 15 minutes of pure snuggle time in my bed with her, and then we got up and played, just the two of us.

We are at my parents’ house this weekend while Daddy is having a fun few nerdy days of gaming with his friends, and it has been all Halloween up in here!

My mom planned lots of Halloween-themed crafts, foods, and we did a photo shoot with the kids in their costumes. I’ll do a more in-depth post soon, but for now here are some teasers:

If that doesn’t get you in the Halloween spirit, then I can’t help you!

Coming up on the blog this week is an awesome giveaway, especially if you have children or a special little one that you need a great gift for. Come back on Monday to enter!

And stay tuned for the formal announcement of an upcoming “blogger resolution challenge.” Set goals, meet new friends, and win some great prizes at the same time!

See you again soon!
