My two year olds second day of school this week was a huge hit again!  My 6 year old is driving my nuts talking about Halloween costumes already!  I refuse to look until October, which is NEXT week!  I love fall in the Northeast though and I hope everyone is getting out to enjoy the beautiful weather we have been having!
