Or maybe you SHOULD act like a kid! The more time I spend with my kids, the more I think I need to be more like them.

It goes over your door frame so you can do pull ups with out screwing into your walls. Pretty sweet deal. The kids (5 and 10) think this is the best thing ever. Braden (5) says, I’m gonna go on the ride! Aubrey can do pull ups on it already and can’t walk by it with out trying it out. Today her abs and arms were sore from all the playing!
This got me thinking. Since when did exercise become such a chore? Maybe I need to start shadowing the kids and see what kind of results that brings!
What a fun week. Two birthdays and Halloween! Doesn’t get much better than that. In our family we have a tradition of having a spooky Halloween Dinner (think low lights, Halloween music & decor and food that doesn’t look like it’s edible!) We found some great recipes this year.
On the menu: Rotten Teeth, Worms, Juicy Eyeballs, Salty Bones & Blood, Mummies and Witch’s Brew with Decapitated Hands!

They were all pretty easy to make, except for the worms. Removing the worms from the straws was tough, but luckily Taylor helped me with that. Trick or Treating was fun … not too cold and only a few light sprinkles. Here’s our fam:
