October, for us, always means 2 things: pumpkin patches & trick or treating!!! The first pumpkin patch that we went to, with classmates & friends, was at a nearby church.
We started the morning with cinnamon rolls decorated as pumpkins. For dinner, we had our annual pumpkin pizza. Then, we all hit the streets looking for candy. Grandy & The Block's joined us for the fun.
Luckily, November started nice & slow... LOTS of playing outside; riding bikes; dress-up; & play dates.
Much to the family's dismay, I arranged for our yearly Family Photo session. Surprisingly, it went really well & we got several pictures that we liked.
Also making his appearance in November, to get things on the right track for Santa, is Mickey the Elf. His nightly shenanigan's always make for a fun game of Hide & Seek for the whole month of December.
I guess I'll start December there... with a run down of all of Mickey's sightings throughout the Holiday Season. (There were some nights that he was more creative than others :)
This year was the first year that we attended the official Lighting of the Bulverde Town Christmas Tree. There were different vendors; food; games & even snow for the kids to play in. We met up with friends (Ellen, Carmine, Derek, Andrea, Olivia, Patrick, Michelle & Owen) & stayed up way past our "bedtime".
Since the colder weather FINALLY set in, Jett & Delilah take advantage of hot, sudsy, bubble baths.
It was a good thing that the kids made such special cookies. We had just the perfect plate to put them on when it was time to leave cookies & milk for Santa plus carrots for his reindeer.
The Walker's hosted their annual Christmas party again this year. It's an opportunity for Rich & I to get away for an evening of fun with wonderful friends... and LOTS of (too much) Holiday "cheer".
