Happy Fall Y’all!
Fall is our FAVORITE time of year! It finally starts to cool down in Texas and it kicks off some of our most loved holidays! I wanted to share some of our favorite traditions and our “bucket” list items because I think traditions will make this time of year feel special–despite the challenges we face with quarantine/social distancing.
All Things Pumpkin
We are talking multiple trips to the local pumpkin patches and plenty of pumpkin carving. We generally tend to paint our pumpkins so they last longer and we can be a little bit more creative with the designs. We love adding some glitter to them or doing a certain theme each year.
Because it’s finally cool during the fall, we tend to spend a lot more time outdoors. One of our favorite things is to go on a nature walk and collect all the differently colored leaves that we can–and then make them into a piece of art!
Baking Apple Pies
Are you Team Apple Pie or Team Pumpkin Pie? I’m just Team Pie–I love them both!!!! But there is nothing better than the smell of apples and cinnamon in the fall! Callie has to have hers with vanilla ice cream of course.
Watching Scary Movies
Fall is the perfect time to watch some scary movies as a family! We love the classics like Hocus Pocus and The Adams Family! We tend to add a new movie to the mix each year!
Camping at the Ranch
Camping in the summer in Texas….just isn’t happening. But come fall….it’s the perfect weather. We love sneaking away for a quick weekend off the grid. Camp fires, smores, and spooky stories under the stars!
I’ve been told my pumpkin muffins are out of this world. These are on daily rotation in our house from September to November and our friends and neighbors ask me to specifically make them! Chocolate chips are a fun addition to an already well loved treat!
We are BIG on Halloween! Our little pumpkin was born on Halloween after all! Half of the fun is planning our costumes–here’s a few of our favs through the years!
