Pumpkins and Fall

I love fall; it is my favorite time of the year. If I could combine Disney World and the NC fall season year round, I'd be in heaven.

Today I saw my first "Pumpkin Patch" sign -always a great intro to the fall season! I am SO excited to take the boys in the wagon all through Ken's Corn Maze here in Garner. AND I found some more fun Halloween stuff to add to our yard this year!

Ohhhh I LOVE Halloween. And it is ALMOST time to dig our stuff out of the attic and set it up. I'm getting giddy just thinking about it. Of all the holidays, Halloween is my FAVORITE. Mostly because we never were able to celebrate it as kids; that's the down fall of living in the middle-of-no-where up a long mountain driveway. NO ONE came trick r treating and there was no way to talk the parents into taking us.

Another reason I love Halloween? It is a season relatives don't fight over. No one cares if you're having Halloween night dinner at their house, or Aunt Alba's house, or the in-law's house. No one asks you years in advance or "calls" the holiday. Nope, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, Easter, birthdays, even the 4th of July, get all the attention and need decisions on who we visit when and where and for how long and what will I cook and where-will-I-put-everyone?

And Halloween? Mine. All mine. And it is ALMOST time to decorate. Love it.
