let me tell you, there's nothing like having a mantle to get me jazzed up about seasonal decorating. i am in no way emotionally prepared to let go of summer, but whether i like it or not the cold weather is on its way (spoiler alert: i don't like it at all).
on the bright side of all of this, jeff the cow, our resident dead animal and living room focal point extraordinaire, now has some cute little gourds and pumpkins to help me get on board with the upcoming fall. all this has made me realize that i am completely behind the ball trying to come up with what steve and i should be for halloween this year. i doubt we'll ever manage to top 2011's calvin and hobbes, but i've got a few ideas rolling around in my brain. wesley and buttercup? pinky and the brain? decisions decisions....

and just to add an extra bit of fun to today's blog post here is the only picture i got of bert after we gave him a bath on monday night. he now smells significantly less poopy and he appears to have forgiven me. if you're considering bathing your cat, i highly recommend it. it really is fun for the whole family.
happy hump day!
