A Halloween Disneyland visit with Pumpkin Mickey and Minnie Hats - 2019/10/20

Time for another Disneyland visit!
Every year we get a family picture in front of the giant Mickey pumpkin. It's nearing the end of October and we're starting to run out of time!
Today I've themed our hats to match the Mickey pumpkin. Both mine and Alli's purple Minnie pumpkin hat are from Tokyo Disneyland. Ian and Theresa chose the ball cap style pumpkin hats with Ian's being the 2018 Disneyland version, and Theresa's being the 2019 Disneyland version. I have so many fun Halloween Disney hats, but even we don't visit enough for me to cycle through all of them. I have a feeling that Christmas is going to be the same way.

Halloween Oreos

Halloween is nearly here! Oreo has released some special cookies for the occasion.

National Kentucky Day - October 19th

October 19th is National Kentucky Day. Now what do we know about Kentucky.
Back in 1792, Kentucky was a part of Virginia. It split from Virginia to become the 15th State. Known for horse racing, bourbon, bluegrass, and of course Kentucky Fried Chicken!

Six Flags Magic Mountain - A fun day of thrills with Jacob

Disneyland is certainly my favorite theme park, but if I want thrills, I know I need to head to "The Thrill Capital of the World!" Six Flag Magic Mountain holds the world record for most rollercoasters in an amusement park (at 19). Both Jacob and I love doing the big thrill rides, so a few times a year, both of us will take off during a weekday and come enjoy the park.

National Pasta Day - October 17th

Today is National Pasta Day! Not to be confused with National Noodle Day or National Linguine Day. When I told the kids, they were excited. They love pasta. First they decided they wanted to eat the white pasta at Olive Garden. We were just there yesterday celebrating Alli's birthday, and they had all-you-can-eat pasta! I'm a little full of fettuccine alfredo right now.
What other kinds of pasta do you guys like? Ramen!!!
Sounds like a good dinner to me!

Happy Birthday Alli!

How could 4 years have passed so quickly?!? Aren't you still my little baby girl that we brought home from the hospital 3 years and 363 days ago? In that post all those years ago, I ended by saying "I wonder what adventures will be in store for us next." I couldn't have imagined all the amazing things we've done together. And it's been really fun seeing you go from infant, to toddler, to little girl who's in to playing dress-up and pretend. And is also super brave on big roller coasters!
Let's get this party started!

Franken Berry, Boo Berry, and Count Chocula taste test

Halloween is here and with it comes special Halloweentime cereal. These Monster cereals originally came out around 1971, and have appeared seasonally ever since.

Missing are two characters, the Fruit Brute and the Fruity Yummy Mummy, which have been discontinued.
