The beginning of October found me in Chicago but thankfully Mom is doing great and this weekend it was about gathering the kiddos here and having some pre-Halloween fun. To put this mix together we start with some food...of course we do!
Monster Munch? Yep, we all decided this new recipe was a keeper! (not to mention additive!)
The yearly standby of Witches fingers...thanks to all who donated a digit for this special day!
Fall means apples which translates into apple pie. Can you find the ghosts on the crust? After the food the atmosphere needs some ramping up!
Kitchen fireplace mantel ready to go but don't put a fire in there.....
These dudes just might have a surprise for you! With the food and decorations in place all that's needed are the humans! We had a lovely, very cool, Fall day to gather around the fire pit, play games, eat and do lots of laughing.
Badminton with Cameron will have me running for some ibuprofen tonight!
Looks like Jack got photo bombed by a crazed gourd...and Jord!
The brothers three....missing our Portland crew with brother four. Always nice to see them have a good time together.
Jack and Evelyn....so sweet.
The whole gang gone nutty? Fun bags filled with crazy things and candy was a hit!
Some old friends stopped by the fire pit...Addy loves them! Yes, all the ingredients for a fun bash....love, food, family, friends....on to the rest of the month!
Welcome to the Pines! I'm a wife of many, many years with my Chiropractor hubbie, the Mom to 4 all grown up boys/now men...and Grandmother to 9 super Grandkiddos. I work in surgery and my simple adventures are here for your amusement..can you take it?
