Patting myself on the back for blogging on a Monday morning! I thought I would have so much more time to myself with Hudson in kindergarten and Sadie in preschool three mornings a week. But nope! It’s even busier than before. How is that possible?
And yes, we are only on day 2 of preschool, so maybe I’ll feel better in a week or so. I just can’t believe my little girl is old enough for school. It feels like just yesterday I was quitting my job to stay home with my little baby. And now she’s a big 3 year old. I somehow managed not to cry on any of Hudson’s first days of school. But Sadie’s got me! I know I’ll be a HOT MESS when it’s Belle’s turn.
Meanwhile Belle and I have been keeping busy. Up next on our to-do list is Halloween costumes! Halloween always sneaks up on me because October is such a busy month for our family. This October marks our 10 year wedding anniversary, so we will be out of town for a week. Which means Halloween planning starts NOW! I have the cutest lion costume I’ve been holding on for years, trying to convince one of my kids to wear it. It’s a 2T and Hudson wouldn’t go near it when he was two. Same with Sadie. But Belle is ALL ABOUT IT. So now I need a family theme that involves one lion! So far my ideas are: lions and tigers and bears, oh my!, Wizard of Oz, and Circus/Greatest Showman. But Hudson isn’t so sure about any of those ideas. I’m trying to convince him to be the strong man in the circus or the ring leader/lion tamer. The jury is still out on him, but Sadie and Belle are totally in! Mostly because Sadie doesn’t understand and Belle is just happy to be included. Jon wasn’t too keen on my idea of him being the bearded lady, either.
Any other cute ideas? I know all of you are ten times more creative than I am!
Oh, Jon must be the bearded lady!!

We did the circus theme last year, the lion, lion tamer and an acrobat. A lot was DIY, it was so cute! There is lots of options for circus characters. Can’t wait to see your kids in their customes. See pic for ideas https://www.instagram.com/p/Ba7b0hnguXl/?taken-by=magalylapola
