October Delivered. Home-grown apples, pumpkin patches, leaf piles, warm sweaters, story books, Moose Slippers and of course trick or treating have all been checked off our list of "I wish I had." In true Hallows Eve fashion, there was chili. There were bread bowls, M&Ms, babies bundled up in pumpkin costumes, dogs barking and of course that house- you know, the one that gives out soda pop- full size soda pop. Kade was a natural at trick or treating. He giggled and balled his fists up in excitement, pushing on the door when the owner didn't open it up fast enough and attempting to take the whole bowl instead of just one piece from the selection. He was frightened only once, by a strobe light on the porch of a not-so-scary lady handing out Starbursts. It was fantastic. And as if Mother Nature is on a very tight schedule, there is Snow in tomorrows forecast. It's as if she was watching closely, waiting for the last trick or treater to get home safely and having her little snow troops waiting for their ques. Tomorrow is November, it's time. Am I prepared? I like to think so- but every year, as I'm scraping a foot of snow from my windshield and truly believing I have freaking frost bite on my LUNGS- I find myself thinking only one thing: I'm so not ready for this. Only time, and a few snow storms, will tell.
I think Kade needs to be in a Chapstick commercial. What do you think?
