So as of October 1st, I am on call. The kids' birthdays are on 10/18 and 10/29, so I'm having Badger's 1st birthday party on 10/20 and ChimChim's 3rd birthday (a big party, not at home, and with a ton of kids) on 10/21. Then of course Halloween. Chim wants to be a mean witch, and Badger will be a bat... but I still need to get the costumes. I really would love to go pumpkin picking too!
I love this time of year... but we're going through an warm snap and I'm ready for the FALL. It's only a few weeks of nice weather between the swelter of summer and the grey rain of the winter in Pittsburgh, and I love every moment. October is definitely my favorite month. Even though I hated having newborns in the cold winter and getting cabin fever... I do have yet two more reasons to love October.
