Celebrating Fun: October 2012

October comes with a lot of fun on its own.  I mean any month where you get TONS of candy is a good month.  In our house we have a few traditions that come along in October.  While there aren’t as many “fun” days to celebrate there are still plenty of ways to keep busy in October and I plan on celebrating with my sweet little monsters.

 A few of our yearly traditions in October are:

Making Mummy Dogs – always dinner on Halloween but usually a couple other times in the month!

Family trip to the Pumpkin Patch

Annual Pumpkin Patch Trip

Carving pumpkins with Aunt Darla – though she recently moved to Colorado, we are hoping to visit in October and still carve pumpkins with her.

Family Pumpkin Carving Night – my SIL started a couple years ago having us all come over and carve pumpkins together.  It is a fun and silly time with my hubby’s side of the family that we love!

Hallelujah Night – where we celebrate Halloween, our church’s Halloween carnival

4th – National Golf Day – for sure a day I won’t have to force my hubby to participate in ;)
