Hello October! Oh my gosh it is cold here in Ohio today…there is a definite chill in the air and the leaves are turning. Like many of you, October is one of my very favorite months. When my kids were small, every year about this time I would start thinking about Halloween costumes. I almost always made them. I would think, plan and think some more. I made everything from a white cat suit to a Ninja warrior! In between there were bunnies, clowns, a lion, a butterfly and Laura Ingalls…just to name a few. The only time I bought costumes (that I remember) was the year my daughter was a Notre Dame cheerleader and my son was a football player. Here they are…circa 1990. (Aren’t they cute?)
I used to decorate for Halloween but in recent years have sort of skipped right over it. I decorate for Fall and leave it up until Thanksgiving. This year, for some reason, I wanted to do something specifically for Halloween. So I switched over the golds on my bookshelves to orange…and I made a chalkboard printable.
I hope your October is off to a great start. I have made up my mind that I’m going to enjoy every, single, perfect fall day that God blesses us with. I hope you do the same. Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
