Family 80s Workout Halloween Costume

Family costumes are the best!
We have so much fun deciding on a family costume theme every year, and trying to pull it together to make it happen. And I'm all about minimum effort and cost, so this was a pretty easy family Halloween costume to pull together--

80s workout dynamos!
 


Favorite things about this picture:
My 2-year-old Richard Simmons
My husband's awesome 80s 'stache
My crazy huge earings
My 3 girls rocking their side-ponytails
Our turkey in the background. :) 

80's workout was a fun theme--great memories with this family costume

Sunny green bouquet


One of my favorite aspects of my vegetable garden has been all the cut flowers I have added over the years. It has been nice to always have fresh flowers in the house when they are in bloom and they add some much color and beauty to the garden itself.

Here I have a bouquet of sunflowers, green zinnias, and dill.

Herb collectors

These pictures are precious to me. 
These pictures are moments I hope I never forget--memories of sweet children collecting and sorting herbs for their play.

These girls have been collecting herbs quite a lot this summer--they collect them to build dresses for fairies, to be medicine cats (Hello Warrior Cat books) and heal their clan, to take to "market" to sell, to make witches brew...

We have spent many a sweet morning out in the garden harvesting, weeding, frolicing about--letting our imaginations run wild and hearts fill with nature.
