First and foremost, Happy All Hallow's Eve! I hope you have a warm, dry, fun night.
We've been enjoying our Midwestern Autumn. It's all the things that Pinterest tells you it is: apples, hoodies, boots, pumpkins, football, bonfires, s'mores, falling leaves.
We've been doing fun fall things too. Like roasting hotdogs and marshmallows at my parents' home and going to Wildlife Scary Park for some trick-or-treating, hayrack rides, and spooky fun with the kids.
Captain Orangebeard the Pirate, Elsa, Jake the Neverland Pirate, and Rapunzel - acting like trolls.

I loved all the fires throughout the park, many of them with straw bales so families could sit, warm up, and rest.
Tonight we'll have a hearty potato soup and then head out for some trick-or-treating. We always visit my grandparents and parents, and this year my mother-in-law will be joining us, which will be a lot of fun.
Then, at the end of the night, when the kids are in bed, I think I'm going to poor myself a drink (maybe a hot chocolate with a taste of something. I'll snuggle down under my blanket and probably watch the second Hunger Games movie on Netflix. Tomorrow will be a big day with our parish's All Saints' Day party and I'll want to relax. What about you?
Happy Hallowtide, everyone!
