This is me, and I’m not even going to apologize for it. Hahaha!
Fall is one of my favorite times of the year, it ushers in the holidays and it is a time of year where routines and schedules are back in order, we do a lot of special things together as a family, and yet we really cherish the time we spend cozied up at home watching Hocus Pocus or football. We are also wanting to try some new things this year like a corn maze and a Haunted House. I love fall!
Nothing beats going to a small town football game on a chilly Friday night.
We try to catch as many football games as we can in the fall.
Taking a trip to the pumpkin patch on a Saturday or Sunday is also a favorite tradition of ours. Pumpkin donuts, fresh squeezed cider, huge pumpkins, it doesn’t get any better.
Carving pumpkins is one of the best things. We let the kids design their faces and then we carve. They also like to do a little cutting. We also roast the pumpkin seeds to snack on. Two years Guy picked over a 100+ pound pumpkin!
Each year we go to our downtown’s Pumpkin Palooza and then a Trunk-or-Treat. We get to wear our costumes, play games, get lots of candy, play in a bounce house, do cake walks, it is so much fun and something we look forward to every year.
My kids get to pick out their costumes each year. Between Pumpkin Palooza, Trunk or Treats and trick-or-treating we get a lot of use out of them. We have never done a theme, we just roll with whatever they pick out.
What is your favorite October tradition? How is your favorite way to welcome in fall?
