Ooh, Halloween is in the air, can you feel it in your hair? Miles can! I think it was my sister who picked up this cat wig (and a matching one for Simone, who no longer lets me post her photos on DW) many moons ago. Every October, I pull them out of the box I store them in and force the cats to wear them long enough to snap a quick picture. This year, Jackson got a kick out of the wigs (which he calls “hats”) and says, “Halloween’s comin’ up!” a phrase Drew uttered a few days ago and Jack has been repeating over and over all week. (Or, because he knows he’s dressing up in an Elmo costume and he doesn’t quite understand the concept of it all, he’ll say: “Elmo’s comin’ up!”). I’ve been trying to teach him to say “Trick or Treat!” and also: “Thanks, but do you have any Tootsie Rolls?” Ooooh! Tootsie Rolls! I can’t wait.
Also! As I said in the forums, Christmas is two months from today, which I know sounds like a long way still, but here in NYC it’s suddenly freezing outside and now winter seems too-close on the horizon. Plus, Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away and for the first time in thousands and thousands of years, (the first night of) Hanukkah falls on Thanksgiving. Soo… for those of you who want to get a head start on holiday shopping, don’t forget about all the gift guides I created over the past year. (I’ll make new ones for this holiday season, but they won’t be ready for a few weeks. And in the meantime, if you have any ideas for stuff I should include on this year’s guides, lemme know.)
Happy weekend, everyone!
