    Thank you for the comment on my son's Halloween costume :) Yes, we'd like to have Halloween in a month where we don't have to wear winter coats over our costumes!!!!

    • July 11, 2012  12:48 pm by Erika

      Hi Jodie! Yes, I know what you mean! When I was growing up I can remember so many times it was too cold and we'd have to cover up our costumes we worked so hard at putting together. Then when we moved to a place that had warmer falls we'd have a blast trick-or-treating! My kiddos haven't had the chance to show of their costumes because where we we live it is most of the time tooo cold! Thankfully if there is a party indoors they can show off their costume and of course they love to play dress up with old costumes through out the year! :)

        I linked up a little bit ago, but when I came back to see who all had posted, my link was gone. I guess we're having technical difficulties!
