Thursday Thoughts

Today I'm thinking about...

...Halloween!!!! Tomorrow is one of my very favorite days of the year. I love everything about Halloween...the fun, the food, the dark, windy day, and the chilly, spooky night. I love the anticipation of trick-or-treating followed by the thrill of dumping out the buckets and sorting through the candy. I love the discarded costumes on the floor and the warm cozy jammies worn afterward. I love the fun we have together. I hope you all have a wonderfully spooky Halloween! Here is what we have been up to this last week of October. : )

The early mornings are now a bit too chilly for my morning coffee, but they still offer some beautiful images to start my day...

Evenings come earlier now, and that is just fine with me.

Halloween costumes are being organized. And we will have a Cinderella again this year. : )

Special goodies...just because Halloween comes but once a year.

We carved our pumpkins...

and made memories. : )
Madison painted a Day of the Dead sugar skull this year...Peyton did a traditional spooky one...Rhett decided on a Batman pumpkin...Flynn chose a princess...and our friend Jeffrey was here to lend a hand. : )

Happy Halloween.
Happy Weekend.
Thanks for stopping by!
