The time change was not my friend today. Some people talk about getting “an extra hour of sleep” but because we have little kids it just means that they get up at 5:30 instead of 6:30 and we feel confused about time for an entire day. It usually takes a week for us to adjust to the time change. Does anyone benefit from from time change? Please tell me so I feel less grumpy about it.
After traveling and Halloween we spent the day trying to get things back to normal. I had planned on making the kiddos “spider” cinnamon rolls for Halloween morning. We were camping so I couldn’t make it for them so Sunday morning I was able to make them plus some eggs.
We had all the basic life things to get done like grocery shopping and cleaning out the car. On our way to Costco we spotted a hot air balloon landing, this is one of my favorite things about where we live. We drove right by where they were landing.
It was very bright (Colorado sun) but it was really fun to see.
We cooked and cleaned and worked on moving our things into our new trailer. The kids also colored the sheets that my mom made them.
I wish I was artistic like her!
I also spent time taking down all of our Halloween decorations and it made me a little sad. The kids love Halloween so much and they are sad to see it come down but we are already planning our family costumes for next year. We decided not to dress up as a family this year and just let the kids dress up because there wasn’t as much to do and it kind of seemed like a waste. Looking back now I think we should have because I think the kids would have loved it so next year we will go all in.
Do you do family costumes?
How do you feel about the time change?
