Halloween Prep

I am getting so excited about Halloween. I am always so refreshed when Fall finally hits (sometimes on the calendar way before the weather) because I can finally put out new decorations. I put out my Fall/Halloween Decorations right after Labor Day. All Summer pretty much the only decorations are Red, White & Blue, and that is not much to look at for 4 months or so. I have tons of decorations, my favorite of course are my Heartwood Creek. It was so exciting this year to put them out because I had two new decorations to put out for Halloween, that I totally forgot about. It was almost like opening Christmas presents!

This year I am also doing something for the first time. I am making the kids Halloween costumes! I don't know what possessed me to do it, but it has actually been pretty fun. SD is going to be Cinderella and I got her costume almost finished when my mom was here. I am so glad that I did it when she was here, because she helped me understand the directions and do the stuff that I didn't know how to do! But I have put off Linus' until this week! I started it on Saturday, cutting out the pattern and then started sewing on Sunday. I am pretty close to done, but have to finish the hat, and since he is going to be a mouse, it is a pretty important part of the costume!

What is your favorite part about Fall?

The costumes sound really cute. Surely you will post pictures of your handiwork! Gotta say my favorite thing about fall is all the colors - trees changing, pumpkins, everything!
