October was here and gone, and I feel like I've just blinked. Why does time go so fast when you need more of it?
We've already had our first snow; (in October!) luckily not as much as we were predicted to get, and our power stayed on. Yipee! Normally you just need to look at a power line funny, and our power goes out. The kids played out in the slush a little bit, until Samuel threw a slush ball at Abriel, and that was the end of that. I also realized that the kids have all out grown or lost their mittens, and I needed to make some more. I found a great free mitten pattern online at five green acres. I had some wool sweaters left over from some other stuff, and some unbelievably soft cashmere sweaters that I had been saving for the perfect project. I used the wool for the outer layer, and the cashmere for the lining. They are sooo soft inside, it's like heaven. I love thrift store sweaters!
Halloween night was still pretty frigid. Not exactly a great night to be out trick-or-treating. We shivered through a few minutes of trunk-or-treating at our church, and then decided to call it a night.
That's the way to trick-or-treat. You don't have to drag your kids around a neighborhood, but you still get loads of candy. Candy, which I am contemplating eating right now. Not that I need any, but less candy for the kids would be better for them right? So I'm really just thinking of the health of my children right now. Right.
