It’s October!

Well even though I celebrated Autumn way too early (because I get so excited), it is definitely here now… and tomorrow is the first day of the spooktacular month of October! October just makes me feel good. There’s just something about the crispness and the electricity in the air. And now is the time to break out your hoodies! 

Here is a pictorial tour of things about October that get me totally excited. 


I really kick the candles up a notch in October...

Apple Cider… especially for trick-or-treaters…


Me as a kid… a clown for Halloween.


Another Halloween… this time as a bunny rabbit with my Bampa…


This picture is just funny to me. My sister never really got into Halloween. This may be the only year she (as Casper) dressed up. According to what was written on the back of this photo, apparently I dressed as “a Mexican”. 🙂


Trips to the Pumpkin Patch…


Meril showing off our pumpkins last year…



My 2011 punkin head….


Our annual shot of the punkin heads on the porch from 2011. Joe was feeling very artistic and creative with his pumpkin (on the left)…


This is Meril’s first dress up experience a few years ago. He’s a punkin head. He’s much cooler with it all now. He won’t be very happy when he finds out I posted this.


The witch my mom surprised me with yesterday…


A tree from the front yard of my parents’ house.


A walk down historical Main Street in St. Charles, Missouri… It’s where Joe and I first met…


More from one of our walks down historical Main Street in St. Charles, Missouri… It’s where Joe and I first met…


The movie Hocus Pocus


“Welcome to the tunnel of terror… ah ah ah… Please, join us.” From Roseanne’s first Halloween episode from season 2.

    Patrick, what an awesome “post and host” of pictures from your life and events!!! I enjoyed each of them. I love autumn, also….I wondered if it had something to do with my birthday Sept. 27th!!! I have a question…is there a way I can forward e-mails to you? I have just this morning received something I thought you might appreciate, but there have been a couple in the past that I thought you might relate to. I am on FB, so if you wish, you can pm there with an e-mail address. ………I love the witch your mother gave you!!!….cool, mom!!!

    lol I wish I knew where it was, I have the best kid halloween pic ever. I think we were maybe 5 or 6 years old – it’s me, my cousin, and another kid I was friends with. We were all crayons – I was the blue crayon. I’m pretty sure I’m frowning while picking a wedgie.

      HAAA! I loved the Crayon costumes! My Bamma used to own a fabric show and they had the patterns for costumes and the Crayons were one of them. I used to want to be a crayon so bad! Did someone make it for you?

    This is my favorite time of year. I love clear, crisp days and crunching leaves. I’m already into the ghost stories and am starting to pick the movies I’ll watch. “Young Frankenstein” is an annual tradition. Love the pics, Patrick.
