All Treats No Tricks this Halloween

I have to admit I have never been a big Halloween fan, but L loves it so much, his joy over this fun holiday has spread throughout the house.

Halloween we're ready!
Halloween we’re ready!

In the past I would have done nothing other than turn of the lights and pretend I wasn’t home.

New Skills in Your Time

For me the new year wasn’t about resolutions but I did spend the majority of January learning some new skills. I took a Coding for Beginners Course with New Skills Academy.
