Top Ten Tuesday: Adorable Halloween Costumes



As parents, we all know the real treat at Halloween isn't the pumpkin shaped Reeces. It's the babies and pets dressed up in adorable costumes! We can't wait to witness the cuteness overload coming this Saturday at the Treats On The Streets event in downtown Fredericksburg! It's going to be nothing short of amazing, guys. Naturally, we really couldn't wait so we scoured Pinterest for a little extra cuteness to get us through until the 29th. Here are our 10 favorite picks!

Pouches' Community Corner

Adoptive parents in Fredericksburg now have a new partner on their journey to a healthy family. In 2016, Children’s Home Society was awarded a $125,000 grant from the Virginia Department of Social Services to extend their Richmond area post-adoptive services to the Fredericksburg area.


Now CHS is looking to find adoptive families in the area who need support before they hit a crisis point. “It doesn’t matter which agency they adopted from, or when that happened,” said Buckheit. “We want to offer a lifetime of support to adoptive families in the Fredericksburg area, especially those who haven’t been aware of our services in the past.”
