Good Monday morning! I hope you had a lovely October weekend. Peyton and Chris came for the weekend, and we had a wonderful time. We visited at the house, went to the farmer's market, attended a beautiful mass, then went to dinner at a favorite Italian restaurant. We spent Sunday at the condo, watching movies and playing games. I even spent some time in the pool, and although I strongly dislike exercise of any kind, I do enjoy swimming. It is the only time I don't mind actually doing some sort of physical activity! It felt good to move my body, and even better when I was showered and back on the couch with my Halloween throw blanket and my pup!

Peyton and Flynn made one of our seasonal favorites, Spiderweb Munch. It wouldn't be Halloween without it! Here is the recipe if you want to try it this Halloween.

We were also so happy to see Rhett's very good friend, Gabe. He drove down to visit Rhett and Kyrstin. If you have read here for some time, you might remember Gabe. He lived across the street when the boys were little, and he and Rhett became friends in Preschool. It seems like Gabe was knocking at our door yesterday and playing on our driveway. He was the sweetest kid and is now an amazing young man. This is a picture of them this weekend...
And this is how I still see them in my heart.
While we were down here doing all that, Madison and Nicolas visited my mom! My hometown has the most beautiful Main Street, which is extra amazing the first two weeks of October.
Madison said they had a wonderful visit, and Mom was so happy to see them. I love this picture so much. It shows two of the most beautiful, amazing women who have a most beautiful relationship and who have forever blessed my life: my mother and my firstborn daughter.
Well, Mocha and I are off to start our day. We have school and laundry and some other beautifully ordinary things to do today. I hope your day is beautifully ordinary, too!
Thanks for stopping by, my friends!
