It's October

It's finally October! I have always loved the fall and all the festivities that fall brings and now I love the month of October even more since my bay boy was born in October. I can't believe that in 18 days my little man will be one! So in honor of fall I decided to make a little bucket/to do list for the kids and I

- Go to the pumpkin patch

-Go on a hayride

- Go to a petting zoo

-Walk through a corn maze

-Watch kid friendly Halloween movies (Nightmare before Christmas, Hotel Transylvania, Young Frankenstein and my personal favorite Hocus Pocus)

-Carve pumpkins

-Finish putting out our Halloween Decorations

-Tune into the 31 Days of Halloween on ABC family

- Rock our plaid, leggings and boots(although that will be hard to do in 90 degree weather)

-Make apple cider

- Eat and drink anything made with pumpkin- Mmm starbucks pumpkin spice latte's

-Take cute photos of the kids at the pumpkin patch

-Work on my halloween costume

- Decorate the front porch with all our pumpkins
