Find the Story Friday ~ OCTOBER!!!

Ok, well I might be a little early for October...(just a day, though - c'mon, now!)  But, it's a month I happen to LOVE!

The weather is nearly perfect.  My mountains are absolutely gorgeous with all the fall colors!  And there's one or two days this month that I can go out in public looking like death and totally get away with it!! :)  I'll admit - I'm a sucker for anything Halloween-related.  I've got Haunted House night planned with my favorite gal pals.  I'm planning to get tickets to a fun Witchapalooza dinner theater.  CORN MAZES!!  Let me tell you - they're a BIG DEAL in Utah!  A local dance company does a production called "Thriller" that's absolutely amazing!  There's fall festivals, pumpkin patches, Witches Night Out, Oktoberfests ~ so much fun.

So, here's my pic of the day ~

I love Witchapalooza! I went last year with my daughter-in-law, her mother, sister, and grandmother. And we're going again this year. So fun! Hubby's jealous, but it's girl thing.

He gets to come with us to Thriller. He'll hate it. He loathes that kind of stuff, but he feels left out. So he gets to come this year and if he says or does anything to dampen the fun, he's fired. He won't get to go next year. (and probably be glad)

I worked in a haunted house many, many years ago. It was fun. I liked being on the scary side!

I LOVE Jack-o-lanterns. I wrote a wonderful Halloween chapter in my first book. You'd love it Donea, it's full of fun, magic, and mahem. Perhaps I should post an excerpt of it at the end of the month.

If you hop over to my blog and look under my illustrations you will see the fun pumpkin I drew for the chapter illustration.

One of my favorite rides at Disney Land/World was through the Haunted House.

I've got an Oktoberfest going on at my blog....(Yes, blatant invitation.)

Yay for October! I heart it so much. Now if only it would really cool down here. :)

I just love Halloween as well. I love the weather. I love the colors and I love the dressing up! I love Jack-o-lanterns. I just love the month of October. I was so excited this year I put up some of my decorations in Sept. which I don't normally do. Can't wait for Haunted House night!!!

Thanks for the comments, all!!! I'm sorry I kind of suck a** at responding (and that I just typed a** on here...) But, know that I DO love the comments and visitors and you all ROCK! :)

@ Donna - that's so awesome!!! Gardner Village is the best at Halloween. Have you tried Thriller at Tuacahn??

@Alex - I can totally see that. :)

@ Lenny Lee - Thank you!! I hope you get to enjoy a TON of haunted houses this October!! :)

@ Michael - you already know this, but LOVED the illustrations. You should definitely post the excerpt!

I'm hoping for a really fun Halloween this year~ last year we got zero trick-or-treaters, so I'm leaving a basket at the door and my kiddo and I are heading to town for some library events and a hefty round of trick-or-treating. Since she's only 2 (close to three), I'll probably be eating most of her spoils :)
