October

It's finally October. October is, by far, my very favorite month of the year. The fall weather here in North Carolina is perfect. Crisp, cool mornings, warm afternoons and long evenings made for sitting on the porch talking. And the fall colors in the woods and trees along the road are just gorgeous. Of course it doesn't hurt that my birthday is in October! (The 18th, but I'll accept presents all month long!) And Halloween, my favorite holiday. Which is even more fun with children to dress up. Supergirl loves to dress up and go over to her grandparents' house and give out candy to other children. We've taken her trick-or-treating, but she really prefers to stay in one place and see all the other kids. I can't wait to see what she wants to dress as this year. And I have to find an adorable baby costume for Wildman. Preferably involving ears. Swistle has gotten me hooked on ear clothing for babies. Way too cute.

October is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Hotfessional has an awesome contest running here. Go visit her and try to win some cute pink prizes.

My son James was 2 months old on his first Halloween. We dressed him as Winnie the Pooh...and I couldn't get over the ears.

Hot, thank you! I had meant to link to you earlier, but I got distracted by that naked and jerking off story! LOL!

mrsgrumpy, Winnie the Pooh - that's a great idea! I bet James was adorable! There's just something about babies with animal ears - it's way, way, cute. I hadn't seen ear hats until I started reading Swistle, but now Wildman will have an "eary" Halloween and winter.
