I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.

I can hardly believe its October, October! I swear we were just prepping for Ellie’s birthday and now we’re in full force holy-cow-it’s-almost-Halloween-I-better-start-working-on-Ellie’s-costume mode. We picked up a few petite pumpkins for our front porch and Ellie thinks they’re the best thing ever. She especially loves throwing them and rolling them down hills. I’m not sure she quite understands the difference between them and orange basketballs. Oh well. :)

Last year, Ellie was just a little too young to grasp the concept of trick-or-treating, but this year I think she’ll go crazy for it! We’ve already started saying “trick-or-treat!” and immediately after saying it, she asks for “treat? treat!? please!” She’s got it down. :) Our favorite Norwegian family is moving back to Utah this month (wahoo!), we’ve got our apples all ready for some caramel dipping and there’s a weekend adventures planned as well. October, you’re going to be a good month!

I’ve actually started pulling out, ok, ok, making, some fall decorations since we really don’t own any décor for this season. :) I’m attempting to be more festive this fall and this quote from Anne of Green Gables has always been one of my favorite. I made this print and since you are all my favorite, I’m sharing it with you too! You can download the free 8x10 printable by clicking on the quote below. Happy October! xo
