Goldie and the Bear Family

Little tid bit about me – I LOVE dressing up for halloween. I especially love having a little family of my own to dress up with.

As Halloween festivities are fast approaching, I thought I’d share what we went as last year with the Cowkids.

Cowkid 1 was so patient with the millions of photos we took of her that day. But alas, smiling can be exhausting and this was the last photo taken. Obviously, it also happens to be my favourite.

I made it into a meme, and I hope for the sake of common humour, she forgives me when she’s older…

Happy Halloween!

The Thanksgiving Tablecloth: Everyone writes 5 things they’re greatful for with a sharpie

I love being able to create traditions within our little family…is having 3 kids still considered little??… anyways it’s just super fun and even more rewarding.

As it’s Thanksgiving weekend up here in Canada I had to whip out our special Thanksgiving Tablecloth. I’ve already said how it works in the title, but I’m ok with repeating myself because I have the ‘Running-on-NO-sleep’ card in my hand having just had Cowkid 3.

You get a white tablecloth. Sharpie on “THANKSGIVING” in the centre. Then every year each member of the family sharpies 5 things they’re greatful for onto it. 

Of course if it’s babies first Thanksgiving a handprint is warranted. We put their hand on an ink pad then onto the tablecloth and sharpie trace it – as you can see below:

It requires 2 adults to accomplish this awkward task of getting their handprint… it’s a tricky business with wiggly new baby fingers.

Happy Thanksgiving weekend to all Canadians. Though there is much to be disheartened over, I hope we can take the time this weekend to see the good, the true, and the beautiful  in our lives.

May your home be blessed with family. Your heart be blessed with health. And your belly be blessed with pumpkin pie.

Signed,
The Cowgirl
