I broke all the rules today. My kids are home from school. Neither had class today, and by 8AM Mommy was a crazy person, so… I did something out of the box.
I put Christmas music on the Bose and turned the tv off.
My daughter, who is right at 5, asked me what I was doing since it wasn’t even Halloween yet. I responded with, it’s time for Christmas Cheer!

I love Fall. My kids love Halloween.
I love projects and I love to let my kids do fun things and see the joy on their faces. There is nothing better than seeing your kids happy. And the simplest things make them happy.
Every year, I carve pumpkins and I love it. I love letting my kids get excited about the designs. I like getting my hands full of pumpkin guts and and roasting the seeds. I love how they look all lit up and on display.
I don’t love that they start to rot within 2 days and I don’t like that I end up finishing them alone because my babies get bored and my husband is just not into it. 🙂
I’ve just ordered my 9 foot prelit Christmas tree. My Halloween party menu is planned, now working on the decorations. My house is completely decorated for Fall and I’m getting our Thanksgiving menu planned. My daughter’s 5th birthday is also in November and I am in party prep mode. Menu and decor are “almost” done. And Christmas Lists are almost ready to start being checked off.
