Countdown to Halloween: Part 1

 Today I was inspired by my new friend Allison. I just started reading her blog a week or so ago and I just love all the cute stuff she does with her children. She is so creative and crafty it is ridiculous. I so want to do more like Allison :> She is kicking off her 31 days of October today and I have decided to join her. She has thought of some really fun things to do with her family and I have decided to build upon what she has already planned. Thank you Allison for inspiring me and pretty much doing all the planning for me. You are like my easy button. I wanted to think of something fun to do with my kids this month, I went to your blog, and there it was all planned out fore me :> Maybe we can get our families together and do some of the things for FHE or something. Anyways here is a list of our things we will be doing this month to celebrate October:

  1. You are so sweet, and I'm so glad that you got some fun ideas! I love yours, too... I can't believe I didn't think about Halloween movies! I'm going to have to fit some of them in (how can we NOT watch It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown?). ;) I had a lot of fun today... thanks so much again!
