Wednesday October 24th was my last day of work, meaning that Thursday was a day to sleep in and relax. When I put in my notice at work I had told my mom that I would visit her after I was done, so Amelia and I had plans to head up to Colville, WA on Friday. Our first day as a stay at home duo was filled with snuggles, grocery shopping, packing, making turkey chili and cornbread for a friend and thinking of all of the things we will be able to do now that we are home. Friday morning we headed out with my mom up to my parent's house. I took along my sewing machine, fabric and patterns to have her help me acquire some new skills. We had planned to come home the day before Halloween but we were having too much fun, so we decided to trick-or-treat up there. I made Amelia's costume with a little help from my mom, and I am so happy with how it turned out. She had wanted to be a spider for Halloween, but not a scary one, "just a cute little one". I tried my best to think of how I could glam up a spider costume, and it worked. While we were up in Colville we visited two pumpkin patches, stopped at a few stores, relaxed and had fun!

Now for the costume... I do plan on putting her in it tomorrow to get some better pics, but here is what we have. The first few houses we trick-or-treated Amelia needed help. By the time we had hit a few she was ready to do it all on her own, saying "I don't need help this time". I can't believe how fast my little one is growing up!

Well I would love to post more but I am exhausted. It was a long 8 hours of driving today on 4 hours of sleep. I'm off to bed!
