It's October!

I have written it a million times but I LOVE FALL! I will shout it from the roof tops. There is something seriously magical about the cooler weather and the thought of Halloween and baked goodies and gaining winter weight (haha).

Am I the only one who feels this way?

It's funny because I myself don't even trick or treat anymore (being WAY over the age of appropriateness) but Halloween really brings back memories of being young and eating loads of candy and watching Halloween movies. It's such a wonderful time of the year.

And Halloween kids books! Danielle from Sometimes Sweet has Holiday books for specific seasons that she showcases during the specific Holiday. I absolutely LOVE the idea but realized I don't have any Holiday specific books. But wouldn't it be super fun to start collecting them and then making them part of your Holiday Decor? Like Christmas and Thanksgiving and Valentines Day. OH MY. I am loving it.

From Danielle's Instagram. So cute!

And do you remember book fairs in Elementary School?! Holy crap, those were the best. I think they happen this time of year as well. I remember I would collect the little plastic book marks (the ones with the little tab at the top so you could hook it to the page you were on), I had like 16 of them and thought I was so cool. Did you know that if I could have any job in the world, it would be an Elementary School Librarian. It would be so awesome.

I wanted all the bookmarks. 

Where am I actually going with this post? I have no idea really. I just love Fall and I needed to express it.

So yeah, I am super pumped it's October. It's a wonderful time of the year. I want to eat a bowl of candy and read a book because that just seems fitting.

So tell me, what are some of your favorite kids Halloween books? One of mine was The Witch Who Was Afraid of Witches. We had that book growing up and I loved it. Tell me what other ones are good.


And let's talk about the last minute Halloween Costumes Geddy has had. I throw the costumes together the morning of. I have actually been pleasantly surprised with the outcome! It'll be interesting to see what happens this year, I have an idea of what to do but we'll see how it turns out. 

Geddy's first Halloween as an Old Man. 
Last year as a Lumberjack. 

Lastly, Geddy was invited to go to one of his Best Friend's (Winston) Birthday celebration. We went to the Heber Creeper and got to ride the old train. Geddy absolutely LOVED it. He loved being with his friends and getting to ride a train was a huge deal. They also had violinists or fiddlists (I don't really know which or if it's they're the same) and he was obsessed. He couldn't get enough of the music. It was a super fun night indeed. Plus we got to eat cupcakes on the train!

With Daddy in front of the train. 
Riding the train and loving it!

So we love Fall and that's all I wanted to say.

Happy Wednesday!
