Happy November! Wow, October felt so busy for me for some reason and it's hard to believe we are getting so close to Christmas already.
Here's my October wrap up post, and I hope you enjoy. :)
Every morning I put Pumpkin Pie on the school bus at 7:20 and this month it seemed to time perfectly with the sunrise. This particular morning we stepped outside and saw this gorgeous pink and orange one! It makes waiting for the bus feel a little more magical. :)
(Although this is no longer the case since we turned the clocks back!)
The cows were still across the street for about the first week in October, but have since been moved to a different field. We miss them.
I had totally forgotten about this delicious wild pear tree that was ready for picking this month. The pears were so juicy and crunchy and it was so nice to be able to go outside and pick a few for snacking.
Here's a look at our Halloween/Autumn porch decorations. The girls were very creeped out by the spiders! It's hard to see, but the big momma spider is right behind the cornstalk on the left. :)
My sister and cousin both live in the Syracuse/Oneonta area and each fall, my mom, aunt and I head over there for a little day trip. Usually we go the Fly Creek Cider Mill for some treats and shopping and this year we also headed into the very quaint town of Cooperstown for lunch at this really awesome Mexican restaurant called Cantina de Salsa. It was so good!
The day we went was one of the coldest days of the season so far and it was flurrying!
I am not ready for that.
The leaves were beautiful and fell with abundance this month.
I did Pumpkin Pie's 6 year old photo shoot in this leaf pile and they came out great as well! Very candid, but got some good ones of her having fun. :)
We had our Halloween party on the Saturday before Halloween and this year I dressed up as a Day of the Dead sugar skull character. (Dia De Los Muertos.) Basically I waited until the night before the party to go to the Halloween store at the mall to find a costume! Everything there was super skanky. This was the best I could do to mix some spookiness in while still being family friendly!
These temporary tattoos took about an hour to remove at the end of the night! I was just happy then came off, lol.
J was a Wild West Bartender and the girls were Equestria Girls, Apple Jack and Twilight Sparkle.
I will probably be deleting this photo later, lol.
Right before Halloween, J and I took a 2 night trip to Niantic, CT (right outside of Mystic) and we had such a blast! I'll do a separate post on that soon.
We returned home on Halloween day and had a great time with the girls at a local Trunk-or-Treat. Instead of being the Mexican Sugar Skull character, the girls really wanted me to be Rainbow Dash to match their costumes. :)
Overall, October was beautiful on the eyes and very chilly! It felt sort of crazed and rushed, and I already feel more relaxed going into November. We'll see what this month brings!
Hope you are all well and enjoying your day. :)
