Anticipating Family Traditions

Can you believe it's that time of year again. Autumn months are upon us and before we know it, Halloween will be coming around the corner.

Looking back through our old fall photos, I love seeing the warmth of fall colors. Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays. Besides all of the great decorations, tasty treats, and giggling children filled with anticipation, Halloween is an exciting time for our family to spend quality time together.
It is our family tradition to head to the pumpkin patch where we each pick out our own pumpkin. We spend the night before Halloween carving pumpkins, pouring our individual personalities as we create a few jack-o-lantern masterpieces. We toast the pumpkin seeds, filling the house with the aroma of fall treats. The kids come up with a dream, a desire for their costume - which I then, with fingers crossed, try to bring to life after spending a few hours at the sewing machine.

I look forward to seeing what my kiddos dream up this year and I can't wait to share what this fall season will bring!
