No Tricks ... Just Treats in October!

 

 

Friend:

 

Witches!  Zombies!  Ghosts! Haunted Houses! 

 

October is the time when spirits lurk at each and every corner ... 

October's the time for playing in fall leaves, chillin' in front of bonfires, and bundling-up with warmer jackets for football games played in crisp fall weather. October's also a great time to bundle-up your home for the cold winter months ahead too. 

To help you accomplish all these things and more, I've included some great articles I found for your enjoyment and use. 

Hope you get all the treats you deserve and enjoy every minute of October ...
