Three Cheers for October mini-skit:

Location: My home

Date: October 1, 2015


Meg: “Mom, what day is it? ”

Me: “October 1.”

Meg: “Hooray! Only 30 more days until Halloween!”

We love Halloween around these parts. The kids love to plan their costumes, and well, I admit it, we all love candy. We decorate with pumpkins, we burn some pumpkin spice candles, and we can’t wait to trick or treat in our new neighborhood!

My kids were costume ready by about October 2nd this year. Meg’s going to Maleficent and soooo excited. Andrew’s going to be “the ghost reaper” which may or may not be a real thing, but he’s pretty excited about his mask and the new sword he got for the occasion. We will probably do a trunk or treat event somewhere, and then be in costume most of Halloween day.  We might even find some other excuses (Not that you really need one! It’s October!) to wear the costumes out and about.
