Halloween Fun!!!















Happy Halloween from our family to yours! I just love our little Halloween party that I try to throw together every year! Just fun, old fashioned and we love it! Our girls look forward to it so much and insist we do it... so we do and I always am so happy we did! It takes me back so much to my own childhood... halloweens full of simple times! Just a chunk of dry ice, some cupcakes, and a lot of fun face paint! Everyone wears a costume and has a blast! I keep it small and just our girl's close friends and now Julien's little pal Ocean (aka the wolf!) has to come too! The parents usually stick around and watch the kids have a ball! I kinda have a feeling the kids may remember this one day when they have their own Halloween fun!

Summer in Sweden... part ONE












I don't take for granted one second our summers in Sweden! When I was a little girl I dreamed of traveling the world and visiting places far away... I never thought for a second that I would spend an entire month traveling and living and speaking in a land that is so different, every summer!
It is a lot of fun and for the most part it is the best thing ever... there are also some parts that are oh my gosh so exhausting!... in the end our hearts are so full and our children's minds are filled to the rim with culture, memories, and lots of ice cream!
This year we didn't stay with family which was really different and out of the usual... I could feel it in our kids a lot... but we made it really fun for them and had such an incredible bond! It was just us! Just us 5! We stayed in a cute little apartment right smack in the center of the cutest village! We walked everywhere! Fresh bread from the bakery every day! walks to the beach! ice cream in the park! Oh it was just like a fairytale that you never want to end!

back to summer time... (blog catch up!)
















Just catching up around here and came across these fun pics from the summer!
