it's the most wonderful time of the year! HALLOWEEN is just around the corner! we purchased our pumpkin this week and i have been enjoying it immensely. every time i drive up to our house, i am reminded of why we have this very important and spiritual time of year: COSTUMES AND CANDY and all things CREEPY! i might as well be typing HEAVEN ON EARTH! the hard part is that i can't find most of our halloween stuff yet. only my halloween tablecloth and placemats. i guess that will have to do. no sign of our purple and orange holiday lights, or my jack-o-lantern platter or my gobs of cobwebs. just yesterday i was kicking myself for having a july wedding instead of waiting until october! just imagine! a bride and groom with fangs, a BLOOD red velvet wedding cake, dead flowers, a hearse instead of a limo, dancing your first dance to the monster mash! how could i have been so silly to forgo such an AWESOME opportunity? sometimes i just don't know what i was thinking!
anywhooo, it finally has gotten below 90 degrees here, so we spent some time outside. the kids don't really look like they are enjoying it, but trust me they are! they know the reason for the season and they are both as excited as me about this very important holiday. plus, they are sitting next to a pumpkin! they might as well be sitting next to a gold mine! believe me, my kids will be raised correctly!
our pumpkin, one of our palm trees and the offspring. the palm trees are my fave thing about our new place! who'd of thunk a landlocked missouri girl would have real live palm trees in her yard?
has anyone else noticed the complete lack of imperfect pumpkins these days? where are the lumpy, ugly, lopsided pumpkins whose disfigurement truly embody the message of halloween? are we such a botoxed, nip/tuck society that we need visually perfect and aesthetically pleasing gourds too? how do you make a scary pumpkin-headed man to sit on your porch to scare away non-halloween believers if his orange pumpkin skin looks like it has a daily regimen of Proactiv solution? it's a travesty, a sham and a mockery. a real traveshamockery!
one happy fam damly! cues the aaahs!
