Halloween Here We Come

20120930-131934.jpg Now that October is here, my jack-o-lantern candles and pumpkins are out on display. I love seeing bits of orange throughout the house, and the evening candlelight glow is quite magical.


Now that I've stocked up on candy, I'm also thinking about a Halloween menu. Last year we made homemade pizzas and dips. This year I might class things up with pumpkin soup, pumpkin truffles and.....tbd. I also have hopes of making pumpkin shaped sugar cookies for my son's class!

Before I can really dig into Halloween I need to finish cleaning up the back garden and plant my garlic bulbs. Ah - responsibility.


Though I have a few things left on my to do list, I'm ready for autumn & winter. Nothing gets my household ready for crunchy leaves and cool nights like watching It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown! It really is the best way to get ready for all of the fun & treats of autumn, even if all you get is a bag of rocks!


How do you get festive this time of year?
