We built suspense this afternoon by decorating Roscoe's room with spider webs and pumpkin lights, watching It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (I was disappointed to find it toddler-unfriendly due to the bullying of Linus by the rest of the Peanuts) and listening to spooky music all day. By dusk, Roscoe had perfected his rendition of "Trick or Treaties!"
We've been feeling in the spirit all month long with Halloween inspired crafts and baking, lots and lots of apple cider, and plenty of pumpkin patch festivities.
This year, I sewed Roscoe's costume. He was an alligator. Merritt was an interpretation of a pumpkin because I like my babies to be comfy in their costumes.
October was a great month, and I can't believe that November begins tomorrow. The holidays are here!!
