Welcome October!



The month of October yields a crop of fun activities, the list is endless!  Halloween is the theme for this family and we are busy planning our annual Halloween luncheon/party. Kayla asked to host this year, and she is supercharged. She already has her costume - a pretty Snow White number ordered off the Internet  in early August. With my wild super curly hair,  I'm thinking lion or witch. For little E, we have yet to decide. All I know is this will be a fun month! Here is our list of things to do in October:

• decorate the house with bats and witches, skeletons, ghosts and lots of pumpkins;
• visit a pumpkin farm (here at our end of town, we visit Schramm Farms & Orchards);
• go on a hayride;
• walk through a haunted house (a favorite of ours is the haunted house AND Zoo Boo offered by the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium);
• get outdoors! Go for a hike and collect pretty color leaves for decoration and craft projects (Better Homes & Gardens offers an array of leaf projects; 
• make candy or caramel apples;
• host a scary movie marathon;
• read Halloween themed books (a favorite of Elliot's is:
I have always had a fondness for Leslie Meier's holiday themed books and this one is no exception:

• winterize the porch(es);
• hand out candy;
• go trick or treating!

Whatever you choose to do this October, have FUN!

Enjoy!
