I know, I know, we are more than half way through October and I'm just now getting my pumpkin. I've never been so far behind on my favorite season. If you follow me on twitter, then you know I've been saying "I neet to get a pumpkin" all month long. Better late than never! Here are a few snippets of our quick trip to the pumpkin 'patch' last night. It was really just a boat load of pumpkins in a churchyard, not an actual patch. I'm not sure if they have real patches down here in Florida like they do in Ohio? But nevertheless it put me in the halloween spirit!
Now I just need to make a pumpkin pie for Tanner, watch the Charlie Brown: Great Pumpkin episode and Hocus Pocus while I glitter a mini pumpkin, and I'm all set! Halloween has been my favorite holiday since, well... forever. When I was little I always had to read Halloween bedtime stories in October to hold me over until the 31st. My favorites were: a book called A Very Scary Ghost Story where the little ghosts would glow in the dark; another one called The Vanishing Pumpkin about this little old couple who wants to make a pumpkin pie but their giant pumpkin has disappeared; and of course my favorite, Dorrie & the Weather Box. I still love going to Barnes & Noble and flipping through the children's halloween books on display. Brings back fun memories!
What do you do to get in the Halloween spirit? I always love and appreciate your comments, do share!
