OCTOBER!

October is one of my VERY favorite months! I have found so many fun things to do, to make, to read... I just can't wait to get this month started.

We celebrated the start of October with some chalkboard pumpkins.

Like 2 years ago, I was blogstalking a friends cousins blog (got that?) and she had chalkboard painted pumpkins with her daughter. They were SOO cute. I put the idea away in my little idea blog and forgot about it... last year, I remembered AFTER Halloween.

This year I remembered and it was the first thing we did!



My first time with chalkboard paint. You have to paint, wait, paint, and then wait for a couple days. I didn't want to do that, so it peeled, but I decided to do it again right!

Happy October!

I think the really great part will be when the pumpkin has rotted enough that a kid wiill press on it with the chalk and pop it like mold balloon.
