Yesterday, Kevin and I took Katelynn and Sara out for their birthday dinner. Since the girls are both born in October, we usually go to one restaurant, which is fun and has better quality food. The girls decided, they would like to go back to the “… Japanese place not far from Kaboom Town …”. So, to Kobe Steaks Japanese Restaurant we went:
Sara and I went to the Calloway’s Harvest Festival this year, again. She had a lot of fun decorating a pumpkin, before we did some shopping for catnip and Halloween garden decor. The Calloway’s Nursery has always a beautiful display of pumpkins at this time of the year. Sara and I looked at all kinds of pumpkins. She liked the wart pumpkins. “Some of them look squished”, she said and pointed at the “Cinderella” variety. I also showed her the “French Cheese”: “Look, these are the pumpkins, I grow in my Community Garden bed!” Sara really liked them. “They look pretty; like wood”, she replied.
From the day you came into this world
We were as proud as can be
Blessed with a Daughter
For everyone to see
So every year we celebrate
This very special day
To mark another milestone
As your life moves on its way
So happy Birthday to you
We wish you all the happiness in the world
We ae thankful all year round
For our very precious girl
Happy Birthday, Katelynn!
The Fall Festival of our local nursery will be this Saturday. Last year it was on Saturday, October 1. Here is the blog I wrote from our last visit at the Calloway’s Nursery Fall Festival 2016:

Today, Sara and I went to our local nursery to celebrate Autumn and the first day of October. The nursery had some games, pumpkin decorating, free popcorn and areas for pumpkin photos set up. Sara had a lot of fun decorating her pumpkin with stickers, seeds, pipe cleaners, paper, more stickers …, playing ‘Candy Corn Bowling’ and ‘Witch Hat Ring Toss’, eating popcorn, and walking around in her Disney’s Anna costume. While Sara was busy decorating her pumpkin, I walked around with a friend from the Community Garden to look at some cool pumpkins. Some were perfect, some were crooked, some had warts. She picked a couple. I really liked the gourd, which can be decorated as a duck, goose or swan. The chrysanthemum looked gorgeous in the nursery. Oh, how much I love Autumn! 🍁🍂🎃
Hurray! October has arrived. It is my favorite and busiest month of the year. Both my girls are born in October; the State Fair of Texas began a couple of days ago; Halloween is only 30 days away; some of these weekends will be spend in a pumpkin patch; and the weather is being a little bit cooler. I love October! And I will blog about our fun adventures throughout the month.
Sara was tested and got her new belt, today. Hip-Hip-Hooray for Sara! This week is still test week. Next week, she’ll move up to Master Class.
