Another beautiful month of October has past and it’s been a fun one.
I can’t believe how busy we have been with grandchildren. We don’t take a moment with them for granted.. Many grandparents are not as fortunate with grandchildren living in another state or even another country.
We’ve been to the Dallas Arboretum
Six Flags Over Texas (no pictures to share)
a Fall carnival at church,
and the Shadow Oaks Pumpkin Patch
with grandkids this month, and so many other smaller things as well as being blessed to watch them each week, and even the four year old got to stay with us three nights while his Mom and Dad were out of town. Making MEMORIES.
I’ve had the house decorated since September, and it won’t come down until after we celebrate Thanksgiving. Don’t get me wrong. I love, love, love Christmas, but these days it really bothers me that the stores have already gotten rid of Fall decorations and forgotten about Thanksgiving. I wish these stores were brave enough to not start Christmas in September/October. I truly believe they are missing sales by rushing each season. I went to buy fall stuff two weeks ago and let me tell you there was nothing left worth buying, and I’m not buying Christmas this early unless it is a gift for my family.
But all that said, I may start decorating the upstairs for Christmas since no one will be up there until Christmas Eve and it will help some of the rush and stress after Thanksgiving.
