Count Your Blessings

"When you're worried and cannot sleep count your blessings instead of sheep and you'll fall asleep counting your blessings"- Rosemary Clooney

This is a great quote from a great movie- White Christmas.  If you haven't seen it, you should especially around Christmas it will totally put you in the Christmas Spirit, although it seems way to early to be thinking about Christmas, I like that quote and so I thought I would share it with others.

I can hardly believe it is almost October.  My children have already decided on their costumes and luckily my mother in law is a seamstress and sews their costumes every year so I don't get stuck at the store picking through polyester costumes that are way overpriced and don't fit very well.  My son was totally excited about the new movie Speed Racer and so he says he wants to be Speed for Halloween.  I am not too sure what this costume will entail, but I will leave it to the mother in law to decide.  My 2 year old is obsessed with Mickey and Minnie and was Minnie for her birthday so she already has the entire costume.  It is a really cute dress and ears so I just need to buy some tights and shoes.  I am not sure what the baby will be or if I will dress him up, but he has a Halloween shirt and a sleep and play with skeleton bones on it that will work.  

We will most likely decorate for Halloween next weekend and go to the local pumpkin patch in a few weeks.  Which is always super fun.  It is always great to watch how excited my kids get when  we bust out the decorations and start decorating.  It also brings me back to when I was a kid growing up and I remember how special these times were to me.  My mom always tried to make things fun and special and I can only hope that my kids will think back on these times and feel the same way I do.
