Is it me, or did October just fly by in light-speed time? I loved every ounce of it, I did. But November is just as wonderful. This month is the beginning of birthday season for us (the hubs in November, me in December, and Salie in January)! 'Twill be a joyous month in are jovial celebrations, including the Thanksgivingness! Today is Dia de los Muertos! Do not forget to think of your loved-ones passed and share in their memories. Today, our candles are lit in their honor!
How can I let this day go by without giving proper due to the end of last month? Would you like to see our silly costumes?
Salie: Madame Butterfly!
Me: Black Swan!
The Hubs: 1970s Native American!
What a troupe we were. Salie spent the evening with Grammy & Papa visiting Aunt Kellie. She made sure to tell me this morning all about the spooky "hats" she saw, or masks as we call them, and a doggie that was also dressed as a butterfly. Sam, Autumn, and I had a grand time listening to our friends in Violet Isle (the whole band dressed up as a mariachi band!). They played an awesome cover of the Ghostbusters theme leading into Psycho Killer by Talking Heads, at which point we were in dancing heaven! I hope you all had a safe Halloween, and before I forget-- it wouldn't be November without our monthly list of upcoming holidays!
