October might be my very FAVORITE month EVER!!! There are SO many GREAT things to do and the weather is always beautiful here in Texas! I haven't done a "Bucket List" post in a while, but we have so many fun things planned I think I need to share! Maybe you'll find a little idea or inspiration for you and your people too! Happy October Eve!! :)
We started this tradition a few years ago and my kids seriously talk about the fair ALL YEAR LONG! They love it!! We're looking forward to our annual trip!
There isn't much I love more than taking the kiddos to the pumpkin patch. I absolutely LOVE it! I can imagine myself dragging three teenagers to this same pumpkin patch ten or twelve years from now. :)
Batman, Iron-Man, and a Lion last year. :)
Our Bible Fellowship Group at church always has a big Halloween party. The kiddos dress up. We all bring yummy meals in slow cookers. It's just always a good time! This year it's on a night Tab can come!! He usually has to miss for football, so it'll be extra special. :)
I'm cracking up at Ebby Lee's face!!! hahahahaha! Last year we headed to the Arboretum for the first time and I was so impressed!! There was SO much to do with the kiddos. I remember two things...1. Thinking I should bring the kids back because we missed a ton. 2. And...it was incredibly HOT! haha! I tried to dress us "fallish" for some cute pics with all the pumpkins and an hour in we were ALL sweating!! We're making another trip this year with some friends!
We'll carve our pumpkin (or two or three). As crazy as it sounds, I usually just grab a pumpkin from the grocery store. Mamas with littles...you feel me, right? It's way easier to throw some pumpkins in a cart rather than haul your kiddos AND pumpkins around at the pumpkin patch. (I LOVE the pumpkin patch, but keeping up with the kiddos AND purchasing pumpkins there has always been TOO much! haha!). This year I'm looking forward to seriously choosing some pumpkins from the patch!!
We'll go trick-or-treating dressed up in our Halloween costumes. The odds of Bowen looking like he did last year are really high. By the end of the night last year, he was down to not much of his costume. I predict that happens again! haha!
I have some other fun things thrown in the mix as well. We'll eat mummy dogs, do a Halloween craft, and enjoy lots of "pumpkin" recipes!! The Slaughters are going to have a great October! Hope you and your family do too!! Happy October Eve!!
