I drank coffee yesterday from a Starbucks Red Cup.
It was 29 degrees in Austin this morning. Count'em-- twenty-nine. That's cold!
(Despite my past life as an East Coaster who did attend college in the very snowy state of Maine, I have acclimated to Texas pretty well. Which means that I feel allowed to talk about how very cold it is, indeed, when the temperature starts with the number 2.)
I know what this means! Christmas is coming!
(Also, while I was preoccupied with being legitimately cold on my commute this morning, I realized that Thanksgiving is next week. NEXT WEEK! And that means my daydreams of stuffing recipes and perfect gravy are about to morph into a big shopping cart full of goodies at HEB. Note to self: Do not forget Cool Whip. It doesn't matter how much you want to be Martha Stewart. Everyone wants Cool Whip on their pumpkin pie. End note.)
So, despite all of that, I have to share just two more pictures from Halloween. I cannot, and will not, short-change Halloween.
First, we love Jack's teachers, Mr. Scott and Miss Hayley. Second, we love their costumes. Third, Jack's smile is pretty special in this particular snap. Oh, sometimes I would love to be inside his little head to hear what's going on. I think he was on joy overload here because he was both Darth Vader and having his picture taken with his teachers who he simply adores.
As for Sawyer, well. The force is strong with this one, even when he is not dressed up as the world's cutest Jedi Master.
OK, October. I'm good now. November, I am now officially paying attention to you. Time to make the gravy.
Hope you get all caught up with yourself today.
