I have always loved the autumn. The feel in the air...almost a crispness when you take a breath. I love the colors, the smells, the looming of winter on the wind.
It wasn't until I had Sophie that I loved Halloween. Not scary Halloween, but the little things that make it a fun holiday. The girl has been dressed in orange and black and witches and candy corns since the first day of the month. Nothing makes you love a holiday more than having a baby on that holiday.
When we went to Disneyland, Tessie's favorite ride was "Nightmare Before Christmas". I want to decorate my entire house like Jack's mansion, but we will settle on a wreath. Every time I look at it, I think of my sweet girl grabbing my hand and muttering "I want Jack" under her breath.
I kind of laughed to myself when I put the berries on this ledge. Apparently I like Halloween year-round. The only addition was the berries.
Sometimes I feel guilty about this sign. My Amelia tries really hard not to read it before meals, but she inevitably does. Then the girl gets sick to her stomach because she thinks about the food on there. She LOVES deviled eggs. She said she didn't want them at all anymore because of the "twice baked eyeballs". I told her that those were in fact, twice-baked potatoes. Since she doesn't like potatoes, we are good.
