We were hopping out of the car when Caroline spotted the Halloween decor in the window at the little gift shop next door to the gym.
"Oh, I see all the Halloween decorations. What is Caroline going to be for Halloween?"
Well, that's not really what I had in mind for my beautiful little girl's third Halloween costume. A princess? Super Girl? Maybe a ballerina?
Andrew wants to be a skeleton. Ugh! Surely I can have one cute, sweetly costumed kiddo, right?
We've penciled in our trip to the pumpkin patch for the month. There's a fall fest at church on our calendar. Our new neighbors are already talking about what fun it is to trick-or-treat on our street and Andrew is so excited that Halloween falls on a school day this year.
I think October is the best month. I'm not stressed out about Christmas and its trees and presents yet. There are very few 90+ degree days and the mornings are cool and fresh. And there's candy and treats and parties.
So welcome October. I'm happy to see you, even if I end up with a little monster and a skeleton for my trick-or-treat companions.
