On to November

Here is Dorothy or "Dorfy" as she called herself.

You saw my two oldest the other day and here are the two youngest.

We had ghouls and ghosts but now I have packed it all away. I am exhausted. Anyone else feeling that way?
Halloween is a lot of work. This year I vowed to thin out the Halloween decorations. I threw away a huge garbage bag of stuff and will donate some other items. I want it thinned down to only a few bins so I need a few more of the orange ones. Makes it so much easier to store in those color coded boxes.


Now onto what is becoming more and more my favorite time of the holidays. The hectic time of Halloween parties and prep is over and onto the season of Thanksgiving. I will get my Pilgrims out tomorrow I think. We always have a quiet day at home with all the trimmings and movies afterwards. The time before the real hustle and bustle of Christmas is upon us. I have read a few of you also that are feeling the same way. When a holiday is full of a lot of work and prep it does sort of get overwhelming. I need to try and get as many Christmas things done before Thanksgiving so I can enjoy December more.

Oh, I love "Dorfy", how cute! Your daughters are so pretty!
About those decorations, they're still up! I'll take everything down Saturday. As far as Christmas, you're right, it should be started early to avoid that overwhelming feeling!

Since all of my children, grandchildren are all grown, I just don't do Halloween anymore. So, I am totally ready to just get ready for Thanksgiving and then Christmas. Love your Roo in the pic above. Hugs, Marty

Hi Elaine,
Somehow I missed your last post. Your daughter are beautiful! And such cute costumes. Your SIL house is great. I don't have that many Halloween decorations, more just autumn so I can leave them up longer. I hope you can get some down time to rest and get ready for the next holiday! LOL!
