Baby's First Halloween & Fall Catch-Up

 Good afternoon my dears,

Its been awhile since I did a catch-up on my blog. Things are starting to get into a routine with Drew, which makes time for blogging, etc. much easier. 

- Decorating the Porch - 

Our Halloween tradition was a little different this year. Instead of going to the pumpkin patch, we walked around our local garden nursery, Pike's Place, for fresh flowers and pumpkins to decorate our front porch. I even got my boys, Cory and Drew, to wear matching denim shirts for a front porch picture.

- Drew is 5 Months Old - 

Drew turned 5 months old a few days before Halloween. We've given him the nickname, Drew Bear, ever since he was born, so we decided to dress him up as a bear cub for Halloween. I may be partial, but isn't he an adorable bear cub?

- Mary & Martha- 

A few months ago, I signed up with Mary & Martha. They are a Christian based company that sells faith based items. I was able to get an early start on buying Christmas presents 25% off for Drew. I especially love the items from their All Creatures Great & Small, God's Rainbow Promise, and Woodland Friends collections. 

- Fall Baking - 

We've been staying at home as much as possible during the pandemic. We're both homebodies, so Cory working from home has been ideal. Its given me a lot more time to cook homecooked lunches and dinners, and time to bake delicious treats. 

These pumpkin spice cupcakes were from a baking kit at Aldi's, the cupcake liners were from Sophistiplate (which I caution you to only take a peek if you have some sense of control), and the toppers were from Michaels. They were the perfect Halloween treat.  

These mini banana bread loves were homemade using Grandma Griffith's recipe. They were so delicious, even without the chocolate chips. In a small loaf pan they only take 25 minutes to bake. Delicious sliced with a spread of unsalted butter. 

We'll be taking down our Fall décor and putting up our Christmas décor over the next few weeks. I like to have everything decorated, the presents bought and wrapped, cards addressed and stamped, and the pantry stocked before December 1st, that way I can relax and enjoy the holiday season. 

Hope that you're all doing well. 

Stay safe and cozy, 

Kiki Nakita
