It's October, and I love Halloween. So do my children. I usually buy the boys a new Halloween t-shirt when they first hit the stores, but make them wait to wear them until October 1st. I know it's kind of cruel, like telling someone you have a secret, and then not sharing. But hey, if you can't torture your children, why have them? I'm kidding. Well, sort of, but I have to get my digs in when I can.
Tip: Both Target and Wal-Mart(giving Wally World props today since I was hatin' on them or their patrons yesterday) usually have holiday shirts for about $4. You have to shop for them early in the season though or they are all picked over and all the "cool" ones are gone.
So my husband comes home from work today and sees both my boys wearing their shirts and was like "It's not Halloween." Duh! Really honey? We do this EVERY year, where've you been? We will wear "COOL" holiday shirts all month! It's like the funnest holiday EVER! Especially for the boys. What could be better than black, orange, ghouls, skeletons, guts and gruesomeness, trading sisters for candy, spiders, eyeballs(not in their sockets)etc....? We have amassed quite a selection of shirts.
This weekend we will be decorating the house. Yippee! I really do love Halloween.
Tomorrow, I start the first of my holiday season (Oct-Jan) baking. Pumpkin Bread! Seriously, pumpkin bread is on the list of 20 things I could live on for life. If you want the recipe, post a comment telling me you want it and I will send it to you. (Ancient Chinese secret, kidding, but it is my recipe so for my faithful followers only!)
