Halloween is such a fun kid holiday! Our neighborhood always attracts loads of kids. We usually run out of candy! Don't you love Halloween?!
Being in California now, we are enjoying fall all over again. It's not as cold obviously as Oregon so the fall colors are a little later. Here is one of my favorite Japanese Maple trees outside our front door.
First picture was a week ago; second one today! Amazing changes, right?
Here's my funny story of the week--I had my book group at my house last weekend for brunch and baked a coffee cake using a very elaborate bundt pan. BIG mistake. The entire cake stuck to the pan and I had to dig it out. UGH
It worked out fine because my friends started nibbling on the coffee cake as soon as they arrived since no one had to slice it!! VBG. And, by the way, the book I chose was LOVED by everyone so I'll recommend that you read Tammy Duckworth's autobiography called "Every Day Is A Gift"! Very inspiring!
