Well hello there October 1st. I am so happy to see you. We've got the AC turned off, the windows open, the pumpkin spice coffee brewing in the pot (decaf of course). We've already made pumpkin bars and have the house decorated for fall because we were impatient waiting for you October, but we're considering making pumpkin chocolate chip cookies thanks to our friends mentioning.
October officially means it's birthday month (because that's how the Smith's roll) and traditions are made and continued! Since I had to surrender going to cut down my own Christmas tree with moving to the big city...we started a new tradition last year with going to pick out pumpkins. Robert says we only did it last year, so it's not yet a tradition....yet he's promised to take me again this year for my birthday...that makes it a tradition in my book.
What about you? What are your fall traditions? Do you get excited about October as much as I do?
Have a great weekend my friends! We're heading north to the mountains with our high schoolers this afternoon. Which means there will be spotting of fall foliage. And this is where I do my happy dance!
