But, as the years have gone by I must admit that I have been decorating less, watching the calender less and stopping to see all the window displays and festive homes around town less. I got caught up in schedules, rushing, shopping at Costco (where there are no windows, much less window displays), living in a hurry.
On top of that, last year our storage unit was broken into and of all things they stole all my grandmothers decorations and my Christmas box, so I was not too thrilled to "get into" the seasons and Holidays this year.
Then it hit me, I am a mom now, it is up to me to make things fun, to bring festivities to my home. I have an obligation to Mr. Glenn Kelly and even if he IS only a 5 month old he deserves a Halloween as much as the rest of the kids! So, I got proactive!
I took him to a pumpkin carving party and stuck him in a pumpkin.
I dressed him in Halloween pj's all October.
I put him in a duck costume and paraded him around town. (and dressed up too, along with Nathan!)
And I Finally found a good use for that old pedal car!
