Hello, October

It’s really hard to believe that today is October 1st. It feels like just yesterday the kids were getting out of school for the summer and here we are with a month of school behind us.

I kicked off our month long Halloween celebration by finishing up the decorations on the front porch and pulling out lots of Halloween stories to read to Harper and Dakota throughout the month.

His favorite thing was the black cat. He wasn’t sure about it at first, but after carefully inspecting, he decided it was safe to pet. He wasn’t worried about the big ol’ spider sitting on the pumpkin either. He just grabbed it and tried to pull it off.

Here, he’s telling me all about the kitty’s tail:

I’m sure this stuff will be rearranged by my little decorator many times before Halloween gets here. At least it looked pretty good for today!
