Good morning! What’s this strange feeling I feel? Oh, that’s right! It’s a TINY CHILL IN THE AIR! Fall is here…I think. That’s what the Space City Weather guy tells me, at least. The weather for this week looks fantastic, so it will be a good week to get out and enjoy time with your family.
To help you with that, here’s a list of events this week:
For local Pumpkin Patches, go here.
For local Fall Festivals, go here.
Just Between Friends Fall Sale

After the Spring 2017 sale, JBF Katy donated over $15,000 in items and cash to Katy Christian Ministries after the Now as KCM’s supplies have been utilized by so many in need following the storm and flooding, it is more important than ever for them to receive the donations from our sale. Additionally, they are personally sponsoring several families to come and shop to replace what was lost in the flooding. They are amazing people, and really give back to our community.

Have an event coming up? Be sure to email me so I can share it! (Tamara@katymomsblog.com) I do filter events somewhat. If it’s not family-friendly, it’s not likely I’ll share it….and I like to be upfront about that That’s why you won’t see every single event happening in Katy this week in this post. But, if you feel like it would be a good fit, let me know!
