Today's post is a little hodge podge, but things I want to remember nonetheless.
To the randomness...
A few weeks ago we had our neighbors over for dinner. They're currently undergoing a kitchen renovation, so we thought they might enjoy a meal where a stove, oven, and running water were involved. I thought this BTS Cake would make for a lovely dessert. I wasn't wrong. It was unbelievably good. And, worth every single second it took to make and assemble.
October brought a few days of light showers, sprinkles, and actual rain. It was awesome, and so very needed in our part of California. It makes both Marcus and me happy when we can pull out the umbrellas!
Gah! This little lady is something else. She is full of personality and spunk and attitude. Not a day goes by where she doesn't given us a good laugh. I'm looking forward to sharing her 15 month (15!) update next week.
THE TIDE POOLS
Our afternoons can get kind of long. Finding ways to keep entertained around the house can often become monotonous. Instead of riding bikes or scooters for the hundredth time of the day, we've been heading to the water to toss rocks and find sea creatures. I'm always on the hunt for urchins, Marcus likes to collect any creature that has a shell (he's partial to the snails), and Julia is content to just toddle around in the sandy parts of the beach. It's been a nice change in the way we end our days.
I know this is pretty irrelevant, time-wise, Halloween is already a distant memory. But I had to share.
Marcus' school had a Halloween carnival on Halloween, and each student was to bring a treat to pass out when it was time for their trick or treating. I'm guessing most kids probably made bank with candy on Halloween night, so I figured ghost applesauce would make for a fun alternative to candy.
That wraps up the end of October (and beginning of November)!
Have a great weekend!
