Prepping for Halloween Fun

I cannot believe it’s Halloween…and even more scary than that, it’s less than two months until Christmas!  Every year, the days seem to accelerate more and more as we approach the holidays, and I have to take time to appreciate the other seasons. Fall is my favorite season, so I ignore the impending Christmas rush and stress, and fill our days with autumnal fun.

I love Thanksgiving, but that’s what November is for…October is all about Halloween, leaves, and pumpkins!  Today, I’m sharing some of my favorite snapshots of our October…hope they bring a smile to your face!

Playing in (and occasionally raking) the leaves….

Pumpkin Patch and the Corn Maze (we found Bigfoot!)


Of course, we had to carve some pumpkins…



And the hooligans dressed as saints for the All Saints Day Parade at church…

You may be forced to indulge me again tomorrow morning, when I post photos of our actual Halloween…if the kids will cooperate for pictures, that is!

However you celebrate, I hope it’s frighteningly fun! (And safe, don’t forget to be safe!)

  1. Cute, cute pictures! What fun! I should have brought you along with me to my folks 50th anniversary a couple weeks ago as I and my brothers were in such a whirl-wind of activity that we forgot to take pictures throughout! We had about 200 people there. My cousin did get some. ANYHOO (hoo-hoo)…….

    this all looks like fun. I do miss the Halloween times when my boys were little. Sighhh. The leaves in the top picture are perfect! Are those in your yard? Awesome leaves!

    And the card at the bottom is pretty cute. 😉 I really like the papers and colors. And the googly eyes! You are really good about remembering these special fun little holidays with gifts from your heart. Thank you!!!!

  2. Love your card, may have to use that design next year. And I agree about ignoring the Xmas stuff, I do that too. Just walk right past it in the stores and focus on Fall.

I love reading your comments, and I'll very likely reply!
