The 12 Days of Halloween starts today!
You may not know about the 12 days of Halloween. When Dawson was 2 he wasn't too sure about the whole costumes and decorate with scary jack-o-lanterns holiday so I started the 12 days of Halloween to lead up and prepare the little tot for trick or treat. 5 years later I am locked in by that boy's perfect memory. Dawson is like your own personal day planner/family record keeper. He told his mom last year at Christmas with a shocked voice that people are copying the 12 days of Halloween for Christmas! I start on Oct. 1st so there is more time to enjoy each little gift. It is also about counting as you can see. The book this year is new out this year and my absolute 2008 favorite. "Bone Soup" based on the folktale "Stone Soup" about sharing what you have to make life better. The illustrations are amazing. Happy 12 Days of Halloween.
