October is fast coming to a close, and I'm sure you know what that means.
We're very excited about Halloween in the Halloweenlover household, most of all because it is Gabe's first Halloween! Such a milestone! I can tell that he is particularly excited about it. I've been showing him pumpkins and costumes and scarecrows and together we pulled out all of the decorations and took on the extensive process of spooking up the house. We can't wait.
Our front stoop is ready to greet trick or treaters, and friends that come in the meantime.
Josh would like you to please note the 50 pound pumpkin that I made him lug home from the Berkshires. He says that it ruined our gas mileage for the drive home. Whatever, it was totally worth it.
We have our Halloween countdown calendar set up and ready to go.
FYI, our name is not actually Craig, this is just the sample picture from the PBK catalog.
Gabe is prepared with the appropriate wardrobe choices for the month.
His costume (not to be revealed yet) is purchased and waiting for him. I promise you that it is cute enough to make you throw up.
The cookbook with all the good pumpkin muffin and pumpkin bread recipes is sitting out on the counter, and the slow cooker is cooking away. Plans for apple and pumpkin picking are on the calendar. A baby Halloween party is in the works for all of Gabe's new baby friends and some pre-Halloween and actual Halloween festivities are also in the works. Gabe's Nonna is even coming to town for the week of Halloween, so we have lots to look forward to, lots to celebrate. How about all of you?
