Happy October to everyone! That may not be a thing, but still. I love October. Autumn is my favorite season, and October perfectly encompasses the feel! It’s the perfect weather for jeans and a t-shirt, then just add a sweatshirt for the evening! Comfy clothes, which is wonderful.
Plus, now in only 30 days, we have Halloween!! Who doesn’t love Halloween? (Don’t answer that-I can love it enough for all of us) 🙂 It’s so much fun getting dressed up in costumes and wearing someone else for a night! That was creepily worded on purpose; Halloween is supposed to be creepy. 😉
Let’s not forget all the fun events leading up to Halloween, or just the fun Autumn things to do! The leaves are beginning to fall and that means raking them and jumping into the piles! Plus the smell of burning leaves, yum. I personally love that smell. There are haunted houses to go to and get spooked, scary movies to watch all month, and bonfires to have! We didn’t do a lot of fires this summer, so I’m really hoping we’ll be able to do a lot this month. The weather’s cooler which will make them more enjoyable anyway! Plus since we live out in the wilderness surrounded by trees and wildlife; it will up the creepy factor and get us in the Halloween/October spirit!
Apple cider! Another thing that is way more enjoyable during Fall. I don’t know how that works, but it most definitely tastes better somehow. Carving pumpkins?! That is not just for kids! I have been carving pumpkins since I was little, and I still find it as one of my favorite activities. I finally talked Lucas into doing it with me last year, and he had as much fun as I did! Probably more since he’s more artistic than I am. 🙂 After carving, you can cook all the pumpkin seeds! What’s not to love?
This month I’m going to make more posts about fall and the activities therein. I’ll also try to find some old pictures of my brother and I having pumpkin-gut fights. (I’ll fill you in more on another post!) What’s your favorite fall activity, or October activity?
