Step into October




One of the highlights of Fall 2011 was dressing up for church festivities at Trunk or Treat. Last year was our first year to coordinate costumes as a family. Here's a look at the fun we had visiting the Land of Oz.


























We celebrated our dress-up fun with a surprise family party with decorations, snacks and favors inspired by the Wizard of Oz.



Last year was our first year to dress up with a family theme, and it turned out to be a highlight of the fall. Choosing another theme that all four children could agree on has proven a challenge, but I am excited to say that we have a winner. I have been making some of our costumes this year, so look for details later this month. And I am already planning a special family celebration to follow Trunk or Treat.






This month holds promise for special family time, birthday and holiday celebrations, a book club meeting and a girlfriends getaway. We'll have lots of opportunities for crafting along the way, so don't delay. Let's look down the Yellow Brick Road and step into October!




"In the entire circle of the year there are no days so delightful as those of a fine October, when the trees are bare to the mild heavens, and the red leaves bestrew the road, and you can feel the breath of winter, morning and evening — no days so calm, so tenderly solemn, and with such a reverent meekness in the air." ~ Alexander Smith

Neat blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really
make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your design.

Bless you

Hi there, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one
and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam remarks?

If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can advise?
I get so much lately it's driving me crazy so any help is very much appreciated.
