Welcome October!

Happy, Happy, Happy October!
All we can say is welcome, and plan to hang around for a while!
We've been waiting for you since, oh I don't know...JULY!  

I can officially say it's time for fall without people rolling their eyes!
Leaves dancing in the wind.
Hoodies, football, scarves, soups, pumpkins, cool nights
sweaters, UGG boots...
Ahhhhhh I could go on and on!

These Halloween memories made me the "Holiday Cheer-meister" I am today;)

Yep...kinda already raided this Target display to decorate Cam.
I was dying to get one of those sippy cups- there's always next year!

In order to cram in all the festiveness possible into these 31 days...
I decided to create our own fall-ish to do list!
What are your favorite fall traditions?

The Griswold Adams Family October To Do list:

1.  Watch "It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown," "Hocus Pocus," and "Casper" as many times as we wish!

2.  Go to a real pumpkin patch to pick out the perfect pumpkins to carve and add the "Jack-o-lantern touch" and fresh pumpkin smell to add to the explosion of fall decor at our house!

3.  Read all the fun Halloween picture books we can get our hands on!  "Room on the Broom," "Skeleton Hiccups," "The Night before Halloween,"...we are working on our collection!

4.  "Spookify" Cam's room!

5.  A Halloween Costume Photo Shoot for Cam!

6.  Trick or Treat of course!

7.  Make Halloween Baked Goods!

8.  Jump in a big pile of leaves, listen to them crunch, and breath in some cool, crisp fall air!

9.  Drink lots of PSL's (Pumpkin Spice Latte's) and Apple Cider!

10.  Bake fresh pumpkin seeds with sugar, truvia, and cinnamon!

11.  Go leaf lookin'!

12.  Give out Candy to our Trick or Treaters!

13.  Order some Christmas home and baby decorations;)  Yes, I said that...

14.  Attend a fall festival!

15.  Go antiquing and thrift shopping just because!  (And maybe even score an old highchair to "revamp" for the Camster!)

16.  Wear all the festive Halloween clothes and pajamas we can cram into the month of October!

17.  Go into work later, have a Halloween Brunch, and watch Michael and Kelly's Annual Halloween special!

SHWEW.  We'd better get busy!
Hopefully, we have put a fall spell on you and your
off to make your October to do list as well...
