Fall has arrived

I'm pretty sure anyway! It's raining today and I'm loving it, except for the part that I'm helping at the Brentwood Halloween Party later today, which is outside! I've been told I won't melt! I love the rain, when I can be in the house, reading a book or playing on the computer, nice and warm and DRY!

I can't believe that it is almost the end of October, we finally made it to Party City yesterday and got the kids Halloween Costumes, here is a sneak peek ~

Trev is going to be Charlie Brown and Meg Gabriella from her latest favorite movie High School Musical. I think I need to do a little work on that wig!

Most of my free time the last few weeks has been spent working on researching my family history, I've spent hours on-line TRYING to figure out my family tree! I have to say, I knew that there were a few stray branches, but some of the things I'm finding and hearing I had no clue about! I'm taking a class over at on Family History, something that I have always wanted to dive into but haven't because it seems to get to complicated, and it still is, but I'm going to get through it this time! I'm amazed at how much I don't know about my family going back several generations and kicking myself for not trying to get some of this information while my grandparents were still alive. I can't wait to get this big puzzle put together and am loving going through all of the old pictures and documents I have, getting them organized and doing a lot of scanning. I know it will be worth all of the time in the end.

And I know that the holidays are near because next Saturday is our Annual Baking Day, well, we don't really bake on baking day so I guess it should probably be called Mixing Day. Either way, I can't believe it's already time. I think Karen and I have been doing this for at least 10 years, and I love it although I'm sure Karen's kitchen is not the same for months with all the flour and powdered sugar flying! We have never had mixing day at my house because my husband would probably have a heart attack with all of the flour and powdered sugar flying!

Happy Saturday going to start checking a few things off of the to-do list before I waste away anymore of this rainy day.
