There are big things happening at Mom* this month. November is always a busy time around her because it is both Epilepsy Awareness Month and National Adoption Month. I typically struggle to balance the two and write enough on each topic. That is why I am so excited to be participating NaBloPoMo this year. NaBloPoMo stands for National Blog Posting Month and bloggers who participate in the challenge pledge to post every single day in November. This means that instead of popping up in your feed every few weeks, you’ll be seeing my smile on a daily basis. I’m going to try my best to split my writing between my two favorite topics with a little room for whatever else comes across my mind. I’m really excited and I hope you’ll follow long because I have some great blogs in the wings.
I think the best way to start this fantastic month is with a recap of a fantastic weekend. With Halloween being on a Monday, we had multiple days of celebration.
We started the celebration at a local church’s fall festival. In addition to trunk-or-treating, they had a pumpkin catapult. It was awesome!
The kids dressed up at school on Friday. The boys were free to wear whatever costume they wanted but Alyssa had to dress as a character from the Wizard of Oz. We went with the queen of the field mice because it was
Saturday morning we attended the NRS Wolfapalooza and the kids competed in the doggy costume contest.
Noah and Peaches went as Ash Ketchum and Peachachu (Pikachu except that we’re hilarious.) He was pretty bummed about not placing had a great time.
Alyssa and her dog, Smith Wigglesbutt, dressed up as Batman and Wonderwoman. She had a blast parading in front of the crowd.
That evening we went to a local fall festival and raced in the giant hamster wheels. By Monday, we were all worn down but we headed back out for some trick-or-treating.
