My favorite season is fall.  What do I love about fall, you may ask?

It’s not the colorful leaves….

Autumn color in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina

Now before you think I am crazy, let me explain…

Fall foliage begins to make it's appearance in Williamsburg, VA

I have never lived anywhere that had lots of trees turn color.

I grew up in Southern California and I now live in Arizona.

I do love visiting areas with lovely fall foliage, but I don’t connect fall with leaves turning color.

My favorite season

Fall signifies for me, the beginning of holidays AND cooler weather after a hot summer.

This year, we are hosting the entire family’s Halloween celebration at our house because we have the best neighborhood for trick-or-treating.

I have been hand-making some new Halloween decorations – some of which have turned out pretty good.

Monday, my mother is coming out and we are going to try making paper-mache pumpkins.

I’m not sure how they will turn out….but it will be fun to try.  I promise I’ll share our results ๐Ÿ™‚

All too soon, we will be hearing little ghosts and goblins come knocking at our door.

But unfortunately, we won’t be home.

You see, Halloween is a very fun holiday in our family and we spend it at Double S Farms.

Last year’s celebration was lots of fun…..

 As we walked in the door, we were greeted by the delicious scent of soup cooking.

My mother, always has a healthy dinner prepared since she knows we will be eating nothing but sweets later.

After dinner, but before trick-or-treating, it is time to play some games like throwing eyeballs into a pumpkin.

It’s a lot harder then it looks.

Then, as if the kids won’t get enough candy while trick-or-treating….

They get to try to hit the pinata, which is filled with candy.

The third pumpkin is carved into a “Mini-Cooper”, which is my nephew, Finley’s favorite car ๐Ÿ˜‰

Soon, it is time to venture out and go trick-or-treating.
