One of the biggest things I missed was not having this blog as a time capsule of sorts. Not having our fun and adventurous times on here from the past year means I can't look back on them days to visually remember and smile. Though I'm sure I have pictures from all of those times that I will eventually update our yearly photo books with, it makes me a little sad knowing they are not on the blog.
A major event from 2014 + 2015 that the blog didn't get an update on (hello favorite Holiday) is Halloween. Hands down my favorite holiday, coming in close with Thanksgiving. I love being able to dress up and seeing the kids dress up, I've always had a soft spot for Halloween. The ability to for one night be someone you're not, to be a princess until the clock strikes midnight. Too cheesy? Probably.
2014 : Mary Poppins, Bert and our adorable penguin!
I don't know about you but my heart gets giddy when I hear the word Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. Can you spell that without googling it? Nerd alert, I can. Obsessed. Even KC was a good sport, and ow ow, he made a handsome young Dick Van Dyke. Double nerd alert, did you know Mary Poppins was first a book series by P. L. Travers? A little history lesson, there are 8 books in the series, and P.L. Travers hated the movie version, so much that during the premier she left the showing in tears. The books are much more dark and less like the Julie Andrews edition.
2015 : Batman, Robin and Catwoman
This year was super fun because Wyatt is three and got to pick out his own costume. He's currently obsessed with the Scooby-Doo with Batman and Robin movie. He watches it almost every single night before going to bed, with the occasional Scooby-Doo movie (1&2).
He originally wanted to be Daphne from Scooby-Doo; momma vetoed that costume [he doesn't understand]. Then he seen Robin, he instantly started saying he wanted to be Robin. When I asked him if he would rather be Batman, he replied "No, I be Robin and daddy be Batman". Just like that, KC and Wyatt had Halloween costumes and they were freakin' adorable. Duh, momma didn't want to be left out so we snagged a Catwoman costume last minute for me and wham bam we were the Bat family.
After telling KC's family what we were going as, they quickly jumped on board and joined in on our reindeer games. We had Scarecrow, Harley Quinn, The Joker, Catwoman, Robin, Batman, Poison Ivy, and Bane. This year has definitely been our best Halloween yet; it was so much fun!
Next year is going to hard to top this years Halloween. I love that Wyatt is at the age now that he can decide for himself what he wants to be. I love my family so much and feel so incredibly thankful for them every single day. I truly believe I have hit the jackpot in life. I'm so incredibly blessed.
