I just can't believe that this pic was taken two short weekends ago. We went from summer straight to pre-winter conditions here in Central Ohio. It's freezing and cold!! And I am so an autumn person - I LOVE Autumn! So to Walmart this weekend for a substitute costume - Alekha had one of those lovely diaphanous Tinkerbelle costumes from Disney that she was going to wear Monday night for Trick or Treating but there is no way I am sending her out in that now! So I think we'll have to go get a fuzzy Elmo to wear instead. A stroke of disappointment to my girlish heart but ah well - there's always next year! One thing I particularly enjoy is that every year, our neighbors all band together and set up a couple of folding tables at the end of the street. We take our chairs down there and someone brings a portable heating source. We bring food and all our candy and everyone just hangs out at the end of the street for Halloween. A great sense of community and lotsa fun socializing! And that way the kids all just wait in line and walk past the table versus going door to door, though at times I do miss having trick or treaters come to my door! So today we are just going to do some fun activities. Bobby is going to catch the Bucks game, I am off to get my hair colored and cut and then we are gonna catch Boo at the Zoo again tonight. She loves all the pumpkins and gets the biggest kick out of seeing them and the characters at the zoo. Hope everyone gets to do some fun Autumn activities this weekend and celebrate with the ones you love!
