I've been many places on this amazing planet, but I've always been right here at home in the good old USA during Halloween.
Maybe that's why I assumed (wrongly!) that it's a global holiday where kids all over the world put on their scary costumes that mom made...or was too busy to make and just ordered online this year.
My German friend reminded me that it's pretty much an American thing. That made me feel sad for all the rest of the kids, and so lucky to live here.
Our 4 yr old is really looking forward to it, and our pumpkins are carved and ready to go.
We visited Uesugi Farms and came home with around 8 pumpkins. Wow. Pony ride was a big hit.
So I finished quilting the mini quilt I was working on, and I also finished my Mom's birthday gift knitted scarf (I still don't really know how to knit) so pictures of those coming soon.
Meanwhile, re-falling in love with the funky Everybody's Free (to wear sunscreen) remix on the Romeo and Juliet 10th anniversary remix album.
Totally in love with the art of Leah Giberson - groovy. Her work will some day grace my walls.
