It's Just the Begining

Happy first day of October!!! There is so much to look forward to this month!

October, is one of my favorite months. Autumn or Fall if you will, marks the transition from summer to winter, I adore the changing colors of nature, the smells and foods of the season, I also love to bask in the essence of cool temperatures, while the sun is warm on your face.

We have an annual tradition (WE: siblings, mother, spouses and children) to visit a local pumpkin patch and enjoy the entire day outdoors! We call it "Family Funday Sunday". We enjoy the carnival rides, foods of Fall and the picking of our Halloween Pumpkins. Since our family funday falls on a Sunday, there is usually a Chicago BEARS Football game on TV, which is a must watch!! So we will meet at noon and watch the game then go to the pumpkin patch or vice versa. Either way it is always a great time and fabulous photo opportunity! This Sunday is our Family Funday and I am so excited.

The family is also celebrating a wedding this weekend, for my stepbrother! I wish them many blessings and a gorgeous sunny Autumn day!!

Yippee, Halloween is in a few short weeks and I am totally stoked about the annual parties we attend. My husband and I do couple themed costumes, one year we were Cleopatra and Cesar(which was fabulous), this year we are thinking...Gomez and Mortisha Addams, from the ADDAMS Family.

Before Halloween is SITScation 2009 in VEGAS, I am on the countdown and looking forward to meeting and rubbing elbows with other bloggers. Sin City, here I come!!

What is your favorite thing(s) about Autumn and have you bought or decided on your Halloween costume???

Wow Sassy! That sounds real fun and you seem to have charted out the whole moth with different things.

Happy Halloween and Wish you and eventful Family Funday Sunday too.

We don't have Halloween in our country. But if we had I'd have got into the dark blue and stripped panties of the good old Phantom, The Ghost Who Walks.

I love the crispness in the air.

WooHoo! I just LOVE reading about other people's love for Autumn. I personally think it ROCKS. :)

That's really cool you and your hubby go to Halloween parties every year. Our friends aren't that creative and if there's a party, I'm usually the one planning it. Bummer.

Happy October 1st!

Tammy Howard said...

We want desperately to go to a Halloween party (but not to host one - no extra cash this year!) We have a family themed costume this year, and would love the chance to show it off...

Favorite thing about Autumn? Pumpkin ice cream. And pumpkin lattes. And pumpkin custard. Are you sensing a theme?

I love the apple festival which is in just a couple weeks!

Your family tradition sounds like a wonderful way to connect with all the generations and enjoy the fall offerings. You just reminded me of how much fun autumn can be.

Dreamgirl said...

I'm a summer person, but I do think fall is beautiful. I'm just not excited about the prospect of winter coming (it's so loooooong here in Norway!)

No Halloween plans yet. But plenty of other fun things happening in October, my birthday being one of them.
I would just have LOVED to go to SITScation in Vegas! You are SO lucky!

Wishing you a fab Friday!

I love the weather and the colors of Autumn. I live where the trees become amazing splashes of orange, red and yellow. Spectacular!

Your day at the pumpkin patch sounds awesome and enjoy that wedding!

No, no costume for me, but I bought my daughter hers - little red riding hood. ;) My son wants to be a dinosaur. So fun.
