That time of year....

Early in the week it was soooo cold here. We had our first frost warning. But slowly the temperature increased as the week progressed, and Halloween night proved to be a pleasantly warm night. I'm surprised my girls still want to dress up and trick-or-treat at ages 16 and 13 (I thought I was too old myself at 11). Katie said this is her last year. It's sad in a way but also a relief.

We had an unusually wet summer, so the leaves have been slow in changing this year. My backyard tree has finally changed in the past few days. I guess Fall is officially here now!

A local radio station has been playing Christmas songs already. I've been enjoying them while the weather was cool, but it makes me a bit queasy when it's summer-like weather and everyone's preparing for Halloween. I had to take a break. Running my holidays together was getting a little weird!

I know what you mean about what age do kids stop trick or treating. Emily is 12 and this year decided she didn't want to go out. Claire got dressed as Tinkerbell to go to a party at one of the clubs in town. I guess when they get older the fun starts again = at least they're old enough to sort out their own costumes then! :o). Your girls looked cute - was the one Raggedy Anne?
