Oct. from the Leaves from the Tree of Life

For all of the glory in the branches, the earth has finished her work of production.  We celebrate now with what we already possess; we make cider from the apples we’ve picked and store the squash for the winter.  We have such security in our substance that we will play with our food, carving faces where candles can glow in a pumpkin that will never be eaten.   In consumer psychology, the orange colors of October inspire ideas of warmth and richness, a concept seized upon by advertisers of brandy and other upscale foods. They also physically stimulates the pancreas, which produces digestive enzymes for digestion of starches, sugars and fats in addition to insulin.  Fast-food marketers have capitalized on that bit of information, which explains the remarkably homogenous decorating schemes of the major chains.    From candle-glow to decorative orange leaf bags, everything proclaims glory in October.

Halloween with Mom-Stuff

It is our favorite time of year We love Halloween. Come and visit and get some fun ideas to make this your best Halloween season. We have everything you need:
How tp Plan a Halloween Family Party
Family is were all the fun begins. Every year our family has an annual Halloween party and we wanted to share with all of you our experiences. This will let you take the ideas and make your own family fun. You can use these ideas and make them your own by adding your families personalities to them. If you do not have extended family around you get together with other moms and plan your Halloween Party together. This is a good way for everyone to make more friends. “Our most basic instinct is not for survival but for family. Most of us would give our own life for the survival of a family member, yet we lead our daily life too often as if we take our family for granted.” ~Paul Pearshall . . . keep reading
