#31 Days of Halloween

Nothing gets me more excited for Halloween than watching The Legend of Sleepy Hallow. If you have followed my blog you know that I love Halloween and every thing about the season. I love decorating my home, preparing treats, handing out candy and being scared. Every year I make a list of Halloween (both kid friendly & horror) movies and television shows that I want to watch during the 31 days of October.  Some are old favorites, while others are ones I have never seen before.

Happy Memorial Day!

Many people forgot that today is not just an extra day off for a three-day weekend but something much more. As someone who has had family members serve in the armed services and lost their life in war, I think today is very important. While spending time with friends and family  at picnics, barbecues, parades, beaches or cheering your team at the ball park, please try to take a moment to join with me in remembering and saying a prayer of gratitude for those that are not here.
