"If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day." — E.B. White

Bugs n Kisses

It's that time, ready or not!
The beginning of the holiday rush!
Ever consistent, I'm not ready!
The farm n horse biz have kept us hopping...
More broken equipment and much horse clipping n braiding last weekend so...
Costumes aren't exactly refined yet.
Thank goodness for Union Bridge's Fire Hall costume contest!
That's our dress rehearsal (kick in the pants).

This year Sarah was determined to wear her Grandma's beautiful old prom dress.
The one she's been wearing all over the farm.
Um, yeah. 
Looks about as tattered n torn as you're imagining!
What to do?
Convince her to partner with her brother and wear a brocade cape over top.
As you can see, she's not thrilled with my idea.

I give you Robin Hood & Maid Marian!

(And my Merry Band of Thieves, cause they're almost cuter)

Now that there's no more preschool parades, Halloween's just not the same!

But this link found on Pinterest is my new fave!
The Crazy Cat Lady !!!!!!!
Designed and sewed by Bridget Keith, age 12!

Sarah wore a spider in her hair, much to Jack's surprise

 Oh well, we got in the spirit this morning with pumpkin pancakes!

Lunch was packed with creepy treats too!
Pumpkin fingers (carrots), witches claws (sliced almonds)
A sandwich with a jack o lantern cut out to reveal orange cheese
and a bag of spider rings n chocolate with tag ~

One more evil scheme...  shhhh
I'm secretly hoping Trick or Treating gets rained out 
and we can just enjoy a festive dinner with our own spooky decor.
