We had a blast on our two snow days. Luke worked from home but we were still able to take some family time and play in the snow followed up with some hot chocolate, cookie baking, and lots of painting and cooking. Even with all that fun we thought getting 18+ inches of snow 2 days before Halloween would really throw a wrench in out holiday.
We were wrong. In true Colorado fashion the snow was completely melted off our roads, sidewalks, and driveways by Friday afternoon and by the time Luke took our pumpkins outside for their photo shoot Saturday a majority of the snow in our yard had melted away as well.
We decided to have a laid back Halloween and since Monkey doesn’t quite know how much of this holiday revolves around candy we decided to pass on trick-or-treating. By next year she will be 3 and there will be no avoiding it. Now before you call me a Grinch she did have some goodies just not piles of goodies, which ultimately is better for me and Luke than her because we would be the ones eating the majority of what she got.
We took part in a few activities around town on Halloween but decided to lay low and hang around the house that evening. Well, folks last year was not a fluke. We had Zero trick-or-treater’s again this year. I am so glad that I didn’t buy a big bag of candy bars like I did last year, that ended in a very discouraging test of my will power and ultimately a waste of our money.
We did have a fun photo shoot with our little pet complete with panting, barking and licking. Honestly I am not much of a pet person but I think I will keep this adorable puppy.
