Welcome October

Pumpkin patch visits, Halloween party planning, jumping in giant piles of leaves, cool nights that beg for the first fire of the season, fleeting warm afternoons reminiscent of summer days, butternut squash soup with Parmesan crisps, my fall/winter uniform of my favorite jeans, a black turtleneck, and clogs, toddler overalls for Ian and jeans with double knees for sliding for Ben, sleeping curled up with my favorite blanket, returning inside on cold mornings for a needed fuzzy jacket, crisp apples in lunch bags, the NC State Fair in all it's deep-fried goodness, decked out front porches a glow in Halloween decorations thanks to my 3 kids at heart, warm fall spiced lattes, steakhouse chili in triplicate batches, costume shopping with the boys for the perfect ensemble, trick or treating in our beloved neighborhood, fall walks for leaves and other outdoor treasures a plenty, time to celebrate my favorite season of the year once again.

Another month of limited to-do lists other than to enjoy all 31 days with my two favorite pumpkin pickers.

I have never been to the MO state fair, but its on my list to see someday. I am loving the crisp apples, too! Love the photo of your boys.
