Halloween at my house is not done until the Christmas décor comes out!!!

ETA: I just wanted to add that to me Halloween is more of a celebration of Autumn the opening of the Holiday season!! I never was allowed to celebrate it as a kid we never got to do the trick of treating thing so I think I am making up for it as an adult and I am making sure my kids celebrate it and go trick or treating!!
I love it!! How fun!!

I love fall and Halloween both, too. Celebrate them from September until about Thanksgiving, then Christmas!! It's a state of mind!! 🍁🍂🎃🎄

Wayne and I went to Six Flags Saturday and rode a few roller coasters. We have season passes so we just stayed for about 2 hours. We then headed to, what use to be, the year round Christmas store that is close by. I found out they close for a few months during the summer now. I sent a few pictures of Santas to Made and need a get a few pictures posted in the blossoms thread! That store is amazing! We had a nice day, as usual!

As I type I just saw a commercial of International Delight Pumpkin Spice coffee cream! Some of you may have seen it. A lady buying up a bunch before they are gone. Yay for holiday commercials!

It will be in the 90's up until Friday and then only in the 70's this weekend!
Nice to see you, CAH!! Glad you guys had such a fun time at Six Flags!!

Hugs to you & the kids!! 🐾🐾🐾

More importantly, did you smell the Turkey & Stuffing candle while you were there?

Good luck to your daughters on their interviews.
Thanks xmas! I did not get to smell the Turkey & Stuffing candle, maybe I will tomorrow. I'll let you know!

Yay! I heard a commercial today for the Christmas Spectacular show in New York City, it is so exciting!

I just realized that in the last catalog I received there is a scratch and sniff thingy for the Turkey & Stuffing candle. It's not my favorite but it's not bad. The new Cranberry Sauce and Sweet Potatoes Pie both smell yummy!

Hi all! I tried to stay away until Nov 1, but, as usual, could not.

Looking forward to spending the next few months here
