Halloween 2015, The Soggy Edition


This year we were so excited to go trick or treating with Piglet. He picked out his own costume (he insisted on being a puppy) and we knew he would have no trouble saying trick or treating and asking for candy. I sewed some cat ears for myself, and found a tail in my Halloween bin. Match even got into the spirit and rocked my old sheep costume from a few years back. DSC_0259



Sadly, the weather decided not to cooperate. It was an absolute downpour! I was very ‘s we did our costume pictures ahead of time, because my kitty makeup was pretty much oozing down my face in the first five minutes. We braved the weather and went to our downtown Halloween trick or treat event. Even with the bad weather, there were tons of people out and about.


We met up with Adventure Family, snapped a picture of our kiddos, then high tailed it out of there!


Piglet had fun passing out candy to the few trick or treaters who did come by the house. We curled up in blankets next to the fire and watched Halloween cartoons. It was a fun and mellow evening, and so very Oregon. Growing up I can’t remember a year when it didn’t rain on us.

Happy Halloween everyone! How did you celebrate?




Piglet’s Valentine

Piglet has a Valentine! These two are just the cutest little things. It is so fun watching the two of them play together.

Piglet also had a Valentine’s celebration at his preschool. He got a lot of love from his classmates!


Piglet and I met up with my older brother, my niece and my nephew for a fun Valentine’s Day hike. I loved being able to spend the day with these three lovebugs. I just wish Match wasn’t working graveyard shift so he could have joined in the fun.



Oddly enough, both my FIL and stepmom’s birthdays are on Valentine’s Day, so we sat down and skyped with both of them. With my stepmom, we had a fun 4 way call with my dad and stepmom, and my two stepbrothers and their families. Piglet thought it was great fun!


Match, Piglet and I had a belated Valentine’s celebration. We ended up going on a walk on Monday at a nearby nature preserve. I love that there are so many cool places to go on hikes and walk. Piglet kept saying “nature!” It was such a nice way to spend the day with my loves.
