Halloween

Happy Halloween!!! I hope you all had a yummy Halloween filled with fun, happiness, and traditions! This year, we started the tradition of a Halloween feast of caramel! I love caramel and I was excited to start this tradition. As usual, for dinner we ate dinner in a pumpkin and then for dessert we had caramel apples and caramel apple cider....next year I am going to add caramel popcorn! After eating, we watched The Nightmare Before Christmas. We watch this ever year on Halloween because it is so spooky but at the same time kind of gets us excited for Christmas:) What are your Halloween Traditions? OH, and if anyone has a very very yummy recipe for caramel apple cider, please give it to me! I am on the look out for one during the Holiday season! Speaking of Holiday season? Have you started listening to Christmas music yet? I have!!!! It just brings so much joy to my heart and home to have it ringing in the background!
Love,
Dan, Emily and Sophie Anne the Duck!
PS: I am very happy to say that I finally have ALL my Fall planting done! I cannot wait till Spring so that I can look at all my flowers in their glory! I planted roses, peonies, lilies of the valley, bleeding hearts, tulips, and lots and lots of pansies. They are flowers found in the Anne of Green Gables series. I thought that it would be a great compliment to our house. Now, if anyone has any ideas for the name of our garden, I am extremely interested in your ideas....I just know that Anne would have a beautiful name for her garden and that is what I want for ours! Here is a picture for your enjoyment...remember, the bulbs will still come up in Spring so it will be even more beautiful! I am just so thankful that we have had this very long and very beautiful and sunshiny Fall! It really has brought me so much joy!

    I love your Halloween Tradition! We don't really have any set in stone but this year we took the kids trick-or-treating, "painted" pumpkins, and watched a movie with pizza, popcorn, and cookies!

    Happy Halloween...quack quack!

  3. Little kid costumes are the best. The feast of caramel sounds yummy. I'm jealous of your warm fall. I kept thinking I would have time to plant bulbs, but it's already snowed twice :(
