October and boys

"All things on earth point home in old October." --Thomas Wolfe

I love my new door wreath. It was marked down from $20 to $3.99! You just can't beat that price. I love the kitty cat - so much personality in that smile. It's hard to believe that Halloween is 11 days away. I would really like to decorate more (since the wreath is my ONLY Halloween decoration!) It's just a matter of time. I need about 36 hours in a day instead of 24. Since Halloween is so close, perhaps fall decorations would be more in line. I will have to think about that today and make a plan.

The boys have been playing in their Halloween costumes for several weeks. Nikolai is going as Harry Potter. (I don't know as if I have mentioned that Nikolai recently became obsessed with Harry Potter. It's a good thing that I love Harry too and we can have in-depth conversations about all of his adventures. Well, as in-depth as an 8 year can be!) Deniska is going as the grim reaper. He and I had a fight over his costume. He picked it out, wore it all day, but then decided he did not like it when his brother made a comment about being able to see his face. Several HOURS later, I told him he could just do what he wanted, I was finished trying to make it right. I told him he could just stay home with me on Halloween night. After several days of me not budging, he has decided that he likes his costume well enough to wear on the big night. Kids!!


  1. Of course your wreath has a cat - a very cute cat too.

  2. Love the wreath! And wow!! what a bargain it was!!
