It’s that time of the year again…fall. Glorious, wonderful, fall. I love fall. I love the changing colours, the smell of decaying leaves, I love hot apple cider and pumpkin patches. I love Halloween and hay rides. I love wearing layers and cozy boots. I love raking leaves into a giant pile and jumping in them with the boys (which we actually get to do this year – all the old trees in our back yard will make for an epic leaf pile). I love decorating for fall. Hay, corn, orange and red flowers…scarecrows. And, of course, Halloween!
Which, by the way, I am so ridiculously excited for! Archer is old enough to really truly enjoy trick or treatin’ (instead of just crying in my arms like last year!). I have no idea what they boys are going to go as though. I’m thinking themed costumes for them, because why not? They’re adorable when they’re almost matching.
I’m also super excited about my sisters Halloween party. This year, we’re going to pay a sitter so both Matt and I can go. We’ve actually never done this before. Ever. I’m incredibly picky about who watches my kids. But now that they are older, I’m trying to let go of my total control tendencies and relax a little. Besides, we will be putting them to bed, then going to the party so they should be asleep during it.
I have no idea what I want to go as to the party. I think couple costumes are adorable and totally rad, but Matt doesn’t.
My friend, J, and I are going costume shopping Friday night. Maybe she’ll do a themed costume with me. 😉
So tell me…what is your favourite thing about fall, and what are you going as for Halloween?
