Halloween is tomorrow…  Are you ready?

Or, like me, are you totally oblivious and a last-minute prepper for the ‘day of candy’?

I am actually not a big fan of Halloween, but I won’t begrudge my kids the chance to look adorable and beg for candy that I can later eat.  ;o)  I mean, that’s really what it’s all about, right?!

I am trying to get better at making special days a little more…  special.  I tend to be a little lazy on the special-stuff for my kids, especially if that special stuff means more work and more cleaning (which it usually does!).

But I am learning that if I focus on the little things, like making something I already have to do, a little more special, the memories are made and the kids are thrilled.  It really is the little things.  Like smiley faces on waffles.

So, how about this super-cute breakfast to start off the day?

My boys were so excited when they saw these “pumpkin smiley face waffles” as they called them.  And I was more than happy to enjoy a waffle slathered with chocolate-hazelnut spread for breakfast!  Yum!
