This afternoon D’s friend Ethan came over to play. I got to visit with his mom who I actually became friends with when we were preggers. We were the 2 pregnant ladies at the gym. The boys are not even 2 months apart (E will be 5 tomorrow). They are chums and enjoyed their time together today.
After they left D and I took a little stroll up and down the street looking for Fall items (leaves, pine cones, acorns etc.). We were unable to locate acorns but managed to get a lot of the other goods. He needs them for a school project tomorrow.
Then it was pumpkin carving time. This little gem has been waiting to be transformed into a jack-o-lantern. This is the pumpkin that D picked at the patch last week on his field trip.
I did the the carving – no sharp knives for the four year old. He did the instructing. We have a happy pumpkin. There is a candle inside but it started to cook the top (just under the stem) so I decided to blow it out before we have singed pumpkin smell wafting through the house.
For dinner I had 2 pieces of bread – one topped with egg & cheese and the other sunflower seed butter. There was also apple slices on the side.
I ate the rest of the apple mixed with zucchini, cinnamon, a drizzle of plain yogurt and PB2. If you have not tried PB2 with veggies yet, you should. It is so yummy.
Me and my guys just played 5 rounds of Uno – we love that game. D is so competitive and is determined to kick our butts all the time. Well I showed him – I actually won 2 of the rounds. They are upstairs reading a story and then it is lights out for the little sweet tart. I am going to get cozy in my pj’s and read my book. I am getting so close to the end and I really want to finish it tonight. I must not stay up to late – tomorrow I am cleaning and it is gonna be a crazy day. I hope you have a great night.
