October marks the beginning of candy season- Halloween, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, then ending with Easter. Throw in Thanksgiving, candy sales and Girl Scout cookies, and I’m in hog heaven. Literally. But that’s okay. You can hide a lot in a sweater. With temps dropping to the 30s tonight, bring on the mini Milky Ways and pull out the woolies!

It rained Saturday night and on and off Sunday, but we got in a long walk, and the clouds made for a beautiful sunset. The leaves are just beginning to change; in a couple of weeks they’ll be amazing. Allison got in a little studying for the SATs, and Cocoa stalked wild animals (that's a viscous turtle). Also on the wild animals sighted list are a flock of turkeys, a lizard, and a frog. Oooo- scary. Also another mouse in a trap. Ick. Top it all off with a roaring fire, chick-flicks, hot chocolate, and gummy bears- wonderful weekend.
