I like to make the morning of a holiday an exciting time. The boys always go to bed with anticipation of finding something fun when they wake up on holiday mornings. I most always put out balloons and streamers. One of our last team members, Mrs. Anne, brought me several new things to decorate with and several things for the boys to receive. Cruz had randomly asked me several days before Halloween if I would get him a Captain America costume. I don't even know how he knows who Captain America is but nonetheless he wanted to dress up like that. Much to my surprise I ended up finding him a Captain America costume at a local store (yes, I gasped when I saw it!) and got one for Ben too. I had them hanging in the kitchen for them to find on Halloween morning. That was a BIG surprise!

We had a normal school morning. For their morning snack I served them these fun apple treats that I make every year. I forgot to pick up a red apple so I just used a green one instead to make the lips. They didn't mind at all.

For lunch we headed to the local mall food court and enjoyed eating at McDonald's.
Afterwards we bought a few coins and let the boys play some games.

One of my favorite holiday traditions is taking a family photo. We did that later in the afternoon when it cooled off just a bit.

What a great time we had!
Holidays are my favorite and I love making them fun for my little guys.
