Colorful leaves. Brisk chill in the air some days...then sweltering-face-melting heat on other days. Hot chocolate. Rain. Scary parties. Face paint. Costumes, costumes, & more costumes. Avy's trick-or-treating bag filled with candy that Daddy Tat & I are currently munching on. Kid-friendly parties. Election time. Pumpkin patch adventures. Lemo's Farm with good friends. Bags of candy corn (also currently being munched on). Trick-or-treating with good friends. Church parties. Pretty sweaters & sexy mama boots. Frumpy sweatshirts and fuzzy slippers. Prop 8 canvasing & calling. Glass Halloween decorations that Avy wants to touch hundreds of times a day, but whining seems to subside every time I robotically say, "The ghost just says 'BOO' to us...we don't play with him." Planning a 4 course "Mystery" dinner & evening for 150 youth in our Stake. Scoring some TOTALLY sweet seasonal shopping deals. Replacing our Prop 8 signs after 1 was stolen & 1 was shredded then thrown on my lawn (niiiiice---said with much sarcasm). Avy plopping down her tooshy in every driveway after trick-or-treating to see what mystical surprise was just alloted to her & her pumpkin bag. Uncle Austy's birthday. Mulitple riveting discussions on Obama vs. McCain. Crunching leaves under Avy's feet. Avy's cute pumpkin hat she LOVES to sport.
This October has been a BUSY one, yet so much fun. Seriously, how blessed am I to have such wonderful family and friends?
Never a dull moment around here...which I am truly grateful for.
Enjoy SEVERAL recent pics from Team Atwood.
Watch out November, here we come.
