I had made a list at the beginning of October with all of the things I wanted to do in the month, and I just about succeeded in checking them all off the list...
Canton Trade Days... Check. I was able to purchase a couple of Christmas gifts, so it was a success.
State Fair of Texas... Check. Ate fried food until I thought I would pop!
Autumn at the Arboretum... Check. It was a huge hit with the kids.
Spa Day... Check. Was a great early birthday celebration for me.
Birthdays... Check. I'm officially older than when I made the list and also celebrated several other birthdays in October too.
Take Lola's Halloween Pics... Done.
Scare on the Square... this was the only FAIL. It rained and rained and rained on Friday. And even if it let up a bit in the evening, Jennifer got the stomach bug, and I wasn't about to venture down to the square on my own with her kids.
The one thing I left off the list was Halloween. Since my Godson and his siblings live several hours away, I had to send them some cookies for Halloween. I think they were a big hit. Here he is stealing cookies with the help of his younger brother and accomplice in crime...
I went over to take pics of Josh, Harper, and Sam. They had a 101 Dalmatians theme going. Sam was the Dalmatian, Harper was Cruella, and Josh was a British Bobby who was arresting Cruella. I thought they were adorable!
