Five Reasons Autumn Rules

  1. Harvest time. You can’t beat that. That’s why it’s number 1.  I especially love being part of a CSA, because you get some cool, unexpected things. Like this rutabaga the size of my face. This is me pondering, “to roast or not to roast? That is the question.”

2. Leaf piles

Charlie happened to be inside this particular one.

Charlie’s kind of a perfectionist when it comes to moving leaves around.

And I’m kind of a goof when there’s sun in my life.

3. Halloween themed books. I don’t know why, but I just LOVE them.

4. Jack-o-lanterns

Charlie feels less than great about the removal of the guts

Henry feels phenomenal about drawing every possible face his pumpkin could sport before choosing one.

They were both over-the-moon about the results

5. Costumes.

Henry is Mr. Costume, normally. So I was surprised when he pulled the ‘I want to be what Charlie’s going to be’ card.

Ninjas!

However, in the end, he wore the ninja costume only to school and then was something else for Trick-or-Treating. Can you guess what he is? (I’m Frenchy from Grease, btw)

He’s a witch. Yep. He’s got a pointy hat, sparkly star shoes, a spell book and a wand. A costume of his own design, so who could possibly argue with that?! Especially since he told at every house what he was. He also had a great cackle.

Charlie’s costume was a lot clearer, but Henry still said at every door, “This is my brother, he’s a ninja!”

Happy Halloween! Hope yours was great, too
