Weekend Coffee Share – Halloween

c (1)

I’m on my second cup of the black magic brew this morning. Can I get you some? How would you like yours? I have tea as well, if you’d rather have tea.

How is your week so far? I’m having a good week. Starting yesterday I get off work at 4pm every weekday. Since it’s only been one day I can’t really say how it is, but I assume it’s going to be totally awesome!

This week have pretty much all been about Halloween. Preparing for Halloween, and celebrating Halloween. I carved pumpkins with the little boys at work in the beginning of the week. Since they are only 9 months, and (almost) two years old, it had to be an entertaining, rather quick process, to keep their interest. A challenge I’m always up for! I feel that it was very successful, as they were mesmerized the whole time. It might not of been my most artistic pumpkins, but I am very happy that they enjoyed it so much.

It’s crazy, I’ve only been the little boys nanny for three months, but I love those boys, like if they were my own. They have totally stolen my heart. I have so much fun with them. They are always up for adventures, and they LOVE music. Every day is filled with laughter, games, long walks, time at the playground, fairytales, crafts, funny faces, songs, laughter, and lots of hugs and kisses. I definitely feel that I am at the right place.

On Halloween, I drove to where my daughter now lives, with her dad, to go trick and treating with her. In the name of being open-minded (LOL,) I ended up trick and treating with her stepmom, my ex husband, and my daughter’ step sister. It did go well, even though I felt it was slightly weird. We went trick and treating for a couple hours. The girls had a blast, which was the most important. I am glad I did go.

Do you follow the series Ghost Adventures? I do watch it from time to time. It’s usually a recorded show, where they visit ghost towns, and haunted houses. On Halloween they had a live show, here in Vegas. I watched it on TV, from a few miles away. It was scary!! It took place at a haunted museum here in town. How was your Halloween?

Last night I went to a really nice steak house for dinner. It was awesome, and totally unplanned. I normally like to dress up at least a little if going out to dinner, but yesterday was a jeans and t-shirt day. The food was really good.

The 4×4 vehicle (I guess it’s some kind of crossover between a truck and a jeep,) that I bought last weekend is running great. It’s fun to drive, and I have been taking some dirt roads, and mountain roads, to try it out this week. I am hoping to do some more of that this weekend, along with some hiking.

Care for some more coffee? Have a fabulous weekend!

Fun At The Pumpkin Patch

Last Saturday evening, my daughter and I visited one of the many pumpkin patches in Las Vegas.

It was so much fun! My daughter said it was the best day ever! (In all honesty it’s a phrase she does like to use from time to time..lol.)

It wasn’t a huge Ferris Wheel, but that made it more scary, I think. You could hear it squeak, and make noises all the time. It was a beautiful sight being above everything at the top. We went on the Ferris Wheel one time, and they took us ten loops around the wheel, it was fun. We both enjoyed it. The first photo of the maze is taken from the top.

Enjoying the view fromt he top was an experience. My daughter is a daredevil when it comes to ride. She just made the minimum height restrictions to the Ferris Wheel.

I love seeing my daughter enjoying herself this immensely. She is so grateful for everything, and radiating joy. It’s contagious.

Do you have a favorite holiday? I couldn’t pick one. Maybe Thanksgiving, because of the message, and that it happens during my favorite time of the year. My daughter’s favorite is Halloween. She loves carving pumpkins and dressing up in a costume. I’ve taken a couple hours of work tomorrow, to go trick and treating with her. I’m excited about that. I tried to buy her a new costume last weekend, but she didn’t want any. She has a cheetah costume that she loves, and wants to wear. I guess it’s OK to be a cheetah for Halloween? If it makes her happy. She’s always been fascinated by big cats.

Are you excited about Halloween? Last year I took my daughter trick and treating in the countryside where we lived. Our adult neighbors were thrilled to meet all the neighbor kids. some had put a lot of effort into the Halloween feeling. It’s definitely going to be different this year. I’m hoping that she will get a good experience.

Happy (almost) Halloween!!

Love,
