october snippets // happy things








// Halloween movie night on a Friday. Spaghetti, bread and wine.
// blowing dandelions, making wishes
// a UNI-Dome game watch party. Blankets on a football field, free wine, beer, food, cupcakes and footballs, kids playing catch and tackle in the end zone, my boy trying on his future uniform, and a Panther victory seen on a brand new high-def video board.
// a Sunday afternoon date to the library with my boy. Hours of watching his imagination at work with toys that aren't his. Perusing the aisles of worn books for Halloween tales and old video rentals. Watching as he quietly made himself a lunch in the pretend kitchen, built "Fall trees" out of lego's and put on a puppet show. Curled up together on the old leather chairs, reading stories of ghosts and goblins.
// quiet Sunday mornings after church. Football watching, story reading and Autumn picture coloring.
// countless hours of leaf play. Working hard to rake up big piles only to scatter it all again within 60 seconds.
// park play on the most beautiful October day. This is why this place is home. Midwest is best.
