My favorite season by far is Autumn. I wish this season would last longer, the crisp air, the welcomed baking, the decorations, all coming together for only a few weeks. You also need to understand that I live in the south, which means that our warm weather usually lasts until the end of September or the start of October. When I tell you that we only literally enjoy autumn for about a month I am not exaggerating. But even though autumn is still short two of my top three holidays are celebrated - Halloween and Thanksgiving.
After much deliberation, I came to the realization that I would never enjoy Halloween as when I was a child. This happened about 4 years ago and much has happened and changed since then. Humbly, I must admit I was dead wrong. There is nothing like Halloween when you have a child. I had been buying him a different costume every weekend for about a month - he has most of his super heroes. He and I play in the meantime pretend "good guys and super hero", I wrote a whole post about his super hero obsession:
I saved his favorite super hero for Halloween, "Batman". It was so much fun! And he looked so cute! Can't wait until next year.
The Friday before Halloween there was a "Halloween Party" at the local elementary school. Carr had so much fun and was such a social flower that I marveled how well he behaved in such an environment. He instantly made friends with his super hero friends and it took him a while to befriend the other kids. It was a great night shared with Aunt Mimzy, Meme and Henry - Good times had by all!
