Fall is definitely here! I wake up shivering in the morning and put on my robe before heading downstairs - a sure sign it's cool outside (even if only for a couple of hours!). The leaves aren't turning yet, but they will be soon. It will be time to enlist the kids to get out their rakes! Also based on what I'm seeing in stores, I'm way behind on my Halloween shopping. Personally I don't think it's a holiday that requires a month of advance planning, but my kids would say otherwise. Unfortunately I wasn't able to schedule a costume swap this year - simply not enough time! But I bet you could find some great ones at a local consignment sale, such as CCC MOPS Friday and Saturday! I'm in search of ninjas (again) and the Hulk.

This week's issue jam-packed with activities, giveaways and special offers. Read on and you'll find:

  • Information on the CCC MOPS (Cumberland Community Church) Consignment Sale in Smyrna
  • A Chance to Win Tickets to Sleeping Beauty at Center for Puppetry Arts Next Thursday Morning, Oct. 4th
  • A Chance to Win Tickets to See Chicago at Cobb Energy Centre Next Thursday, Oct. 4th
