It's beginning. Yep, it's that time of year again...FALL!!! I love watching the leaves change, feeling the air get crisp and cool, and snuggling up to sleep at night. I love this time of year. Of course, it just happens to be my busiest time of year. October starts a 3-4 month streak of birthdays, anniversaries and holidays in our family. Speaking of such, tomorrow is Lexi's 5th birthday!! She's very excited because she just got her ears pierced this Friday. It was our birthday present to her this year. Just as soon as I get them, I'll post some pictures of her newly decorated ears. On to the main reason for my post today. I noticed this year that Halloween costumes have gone up in price again. Having 3 kids, I would spend nearly $60 on just costumes for the girls. I have decided, it's just not worth it. That being said, I can't tell my girls they can't go trick-or-treating, so I'm trying something new this year. I'm going to try and make the girls costumes. I have a few sites that I'm looking through, and I'd love to share them with you in case you have the same $ issues we do. Here they are:
Well then, I hope this helps anyone looking for some help with the rising costs of...everything. We hope everyone has a wonderful Halloween (be safe & check that candy) and hope you all get out there and enjoy the season.
