The fun thing about this time of the year is that you’re never TOO far away from a holiday or celebration in our family. We start with Labor Day at the beginning of September. From there, it’s a short slide to my birthday on 9/29. (September is actually a mess of birthday’s in our family – but most of them old fogeys like me.) Then it’s just less than 1 month until T’s birthday on 10/24, followed VERY quickly by Halloween! (Do you need me to remind you of that specific date? I didn’t think so!)
November is jammed packed with Riley’s birthday (T’s cousin, 1 year and 1.5 weeks older!), CoCo’s birthday (another cousin – queen of the herd @ almost 17), Katy’s birthday (another cousin, same age as Riley) and of course Thanksgiving Day!
From there, like most people our December is loaded up. We make a run to Florida to see Grampa/Gramma, fill up on our share of holiday parties (and this year school events!) and then it’s onto Christmas/New Years. Whew! I am already tired just thinking about it.
So let’s start the last of the October holidays. Tati and I carved pumpkins this week, with a little help from baby Macy. Friday was Tatiana’s preschool Halloween party. In true Tatiana fashion, she has two costumes this year – she was Abby Cadabby (Sesame Street) at school and will be yet a different costume this weekend. But… that’s a surprise! (thankfully, I bought BOTH costumes last year on clearance! My favorite thing… clearance shopping!)
Ok – enough chatter, let’s get on with the picture parade!
