Find out what #NaBloPoMo is!
I’d admit when I first saw this hashtag, I kept scrolling. Looks weird, right? But turns out, there’s a whole national blog posting month! Every year, bloggers all over the web are committing to blogging every day. It’s National Blog Posting Month for November! I can’t wait to sit down in the evenings and turn the TV off and turn on my tablet and get to know my favorite bloggers better!
This will be my first attempt but today’s post is super easy! Halloween has always been a nonholiday for me. I don’t know why exactly. It’s just not something I get super excited about. As a child, my mom was pretty good at coming up with a cute costume and we’d go around and get candy. But then as a mom, (and a noncreative mom at that) it was such a chore to come up with a costume for the kids. Ugh. I dreaded it. But now that my kids are too old to go out and really don’t want to, last night was such a treat! Who would have believed that I would end up blogging about Halloween. Ok, not really but it’s sort of blogging about it. Come with me…
These four are the kids of one of my dearest friends on the planet. They moved away a few years ago and mercy, it’s good to see them again! They are visiting for a few months so last night it was great that they came to use our home as a base for trick-or-treating! We live in a neighborhood that sees over 1,000 trick-or-treaters every Halloween. So I charged up the golf cart and their oldest (the super tall one in the back who grew a foot since I’ve seen him) stayed home with my boys while they took the littles out.
This is the whole gang minus my oldest and my hubs. This pic is pure joy for me. She is that for me! And see that little princess I’m holding… she just turned 5. Amazing God gave me these folks to love on! I’m so blessed! Get this awesome selfie stick I used!
Super easy eats you can put together really quickly.

I hope God has given you that person in life you truly enjoy! Maybe you have more than one! Tell them. Every chance you get.
Keep it Simple,
