There is a countdown all September at our house. Kids just waiting for the first of October so we can decorate for Halloween. Really it is the start of the whole whopper of decorating holidays. After the Halloween stuff comes down, we'll adorn table tops and doorways with autumn leaves and pumpkins, then the dya after Thanksgiving the Christmas tree comes out, a small collection of Santas and an ever growing nativity set.
But until then, there are costumes to throw together, candy to be bought, schemes to be made.
