Halloween in the High Country?

Yes, it's the Dora Pumpkin again! Isn't it cool?

Halloween is upon us again. I still have no idea what my kids will dress as, do you? I usually go to Mt Vernon’s Fall Festival, but this year, they won’t be having it, since their college volunteers will be at the ASU vs Wofford game! (So will I, yay!) So I turned to the trusty High Country Mommies! I asked the question, “What’s going on for Halloween?” And within a day, I had a plethora of family-friendly activities!

And here’s the scoop! If you want more advice and happenings in the mom world, join www.highcountrymommies.com!
