October has come to a close. The month went by so fast, it feels like it was just the beginning of the month and we were finishing up last minute wedding details (and stresses!!)
I'm actually kind of sad to see it go. October is my absolute favorite month of the year (I'm pretty sure I've already expressed this numerous times..) and after that, comes my least favorite season of the year.I adore the holidays, but I do not adore what the holidays bring -- cold and snow. ugh. Already this week, I've had to scrape frost off my my car windows every morning. I dread when I'll have to go out there and shovel snow off of my car and the driveway before I can get out!
At any rate, it was an enjoyable month! Between getting married, enjoying the fall sites and pumpkin patches, I loved it :) The weekend after we got married, Ryan, Rainier and I went to the pumpkin patch. It was the guys' idea to go, and I was like a kid in a candy store!
We had fun picking out pumpkins, watching apple cider being made, and buying some apple cider (mmm!) One thing I didn't get to do, was go to any haunted houses :( Maybe next year..
We carved our pumpkins a few days before Halloween. As we were carving, I told Ryan it was a tradition I plan to carry on with our future kids. As a kid, I always carved pumpkins with my dad and siblings and loved it. Its something I am not willing to give up! . I think that I enjoy carving pumpkins more than my husband does, but luckily he is a good sport about it :) Our pumpkins turned out pretty decent for them being free hand. I meant to pick up one of those pumpkin carving kits this year, but I never got around to it. We ended up winging it, and we were both pleased with the results!
As for trick or treaters, I had NO idea how many to expect as this was our first Halloween in the house. I ended up buying entirely too much candy, so now we are left with two giant bowls of sweets (not that I am complaining..) I think we got like 12 total kids. Oh well, live and learn! I'll have to remember that for next year..
