The most wonderful time of the year!

October is one of my favorite months and Halloween is my favorite holiday.  There is something so wonderful about dressing up and being someone else for a day.  I look forward to it every year.  (I’m going to be Tammy Faye Baker this year!)

We always let Zsuzsa pick what she wants to be and try to pull it together for her.  We purchased costumes a few times when she was very little, but that’s a no-no these days.  There’s nothing wrong with store-bought costumes, but I love the challenge of creating a costume.  This year, she wants to be Merida from Disney’s film, Brave.  I’m thrilled today because I picked up all the supplies for to make the dress and purchased the wig.  I can’t wait to get started and see how it comes together.

Halloween is not just my favorite holiday.  It’s also my husband’s favorite.  Our first date was Halloween 2000.  We wanted to get married on Halloween, but we just couldn’t swing it due to timing.  As a compromise, we got married on October 12, 2002.  We will celebrate our 10th anniversary tomorrow and the 12th anniversary of our first date on Halloween.

With so many things to look forward to, I think this is going to turn out to be a great month.
