Hi! And welcome to Teen Scene, October column in ENID MONTHLY. Wow. I cannot believe 2023 is almost over, congrats on making it this far. The month of October brings some of our favorite things! Fall, Halloween, pumpkins (my personal favorite), nice weather, fun dates, and so much more. For this month I would like to share all of my favorite things about fall and what I love doing and include my favorite cookie recipe for this pumpkin season. LET’S GO!! 

If you know me well, you know that my favorite scents and flavors of EVERYTHING is Pumpkin and Vanilla. I especially love Pumpkin Candles. My grandma also owns a pumpkin patch outside of town that is so fun to walk around and see all of the different shapes, sizes, and colors of the pumpkins. Sometimes I’ll go and help her when it gets really busy. Carving Pumpkins is definitely not my strong suit, but it is really fun to dig out all of the guts and then bake the seeds for a little snack. For cross-country season, October has the best weather for our meets. The Oklahoma State Cross-Country meet also takes place in October making the month even better since this is our biggest race of the season, and we are trying to make it as a team this year and have a really good chance! 

I know people argue about what age you should stop trick or treating but I personally do not think you are ever too old. Even if it’s you going with your family and watching your little sibling go up and get candy, I would still consider it trick or treating. Every year my mom, dad, little sister, and I (and sometimes stepdad) go trick or treating together in my neighborhood and then eat pizza after. It is always really fun, especially in our neighborhood of Indian Hills. There are people EVERYWHERE!

I also really like baking during the fall. Here is my favorite pumpkin cheesecake cookie recipe from Chelsweets!! I hope you enjoy them if you make ‘em!! https://chelsweets.com/pumpkin-cheesecake-cookies/

Also, if you have any comments, questions, or ideas for upcoming articles email me for that too!! I hope you all have a Happy Halloween and an amazing October! See you next month!!
