October is one of my favorite times of year! Pumpkin patches, fall festivals, and Halloween events. For years I would get Elijah 2 costumes, one for festivals and one for Halloween, yep I am that mom. DIY costumes, OH YEAH, sign me up! Now he is older and wants to be a Fortnite player (BORING) but regardless of what he wants to be, I am going to make sure we go to many fun events. I have gathered upcoming events for you to check out!
