We managed to visit three different pumpkin patches this year. I don’t think this is something anyone needs to do, but the kids had fun.
We took a day to check out the Ramona pumpkin patch. We also tried the famous cinnamon roll at the Ramona cafe…way overrated and then on to a few new wineries.
Averi had her first ever pony ride, you can tell from her face that it was exhilarating.
We painted pumpkins before school and then met Kaili for her Halloween parade.
After a mediocre dinner and a total meltdown from Averi, the girls were ready for some Trick or Treating.
Momma lasted about an hour and a half and then I was ready to get the girls to bed.
I think we successfully nailed October this year!
This months dinner theme was to make a dish that has to do with Halloween, I am actually surprised in all these years we haven’t done this yet. I made Jason Vorhees’ ribs, pumpkin patch hummus and ginger pumpkin cheesecake bars.
Somehow I screwed up the cheesecake bar crust, I must have measured wrong and I over cooked it. The outcome, flavor wise was good but hard and chewy. The cheesecake part was delish.
Pumpkin + black bean chili
Shrunken head roast surprise
Creepy egg eyeballs
Guacamole pumpkin surprise
Ginger pumpkin cheesecake bars
Kitty liter cake
The girls had fun playing together aka destroying the house.
Kaili wasn’t too fond of Chris’ costume.
Cutest couple goes to these two.
Friends don’t let friends give their baby toy guns.
Another successful dinner party. Culinary wise, this wasn’t our best but we sure had fun.
