Really, it’s truly amazing I’m getting any writing accomplished at all, because beginning next weekend, our fall party season begins!
First up, a birthday sleepover party for our youngest daughter. Since we have a small house, the girls will be taking over the living room and probably the rest of the house, too (accompanied by cheerful grumbling from my much-put-upon and vastly-outnumbered spouse). Two days later, we will have the family party for said daughter – and hopefully the house will still be in one piece.
Next up, HALLOWEEEEEN! It’s my favorite time of the year. Hands down. This year, we are planning an adult and kid party. Other years, I’ve done kids’ parties, but this year, I felt the need for the grownups to have some fun, too. I’ll be decorating the house in haunted-manor-style and I’m having fun now planning the menu. The kids are each going to decorate their own rooms and plan appropriate holiday activities for themselves and friends (perhaps with an unexpected visit or two from the parents). Should be a great time.
After that, the other holidays start to come fast and furious – and I haven’t even begun to think about those!!!
Are you planning anything special for this fall?
